Ft. Belvoir's Officer's Club served as an amazing venue! The staff was extremely helpful, flexible, and considerate. Trinetta was so wonderful and fantastic; she made sure the night ran as smoothly as possible and was a great individual to work with for such an important and special occasion. The venue has an amazing view, great food, and is very accommodating!

Ft. Belvoir was such a great place to have a wedding. We worked with Edwin when considering to book the facility. We held our ceremony and reception at the Ft. Belvoir's Officers Club on the main level, Mt. Vernon room. There was plenty of space for dancing, tables for all the guests, places for food, and even extra tables for cake, DJ, etc. The view was the best part. Our room overlooked the Potomac River and all of oue guests loved the view in the evening as the sun was setting on the water. The wedding ceremony and reception can easily accomododate anywhere from 150-350 guests in the largest rooms and less than 100 guests in the smaller rooms. We had the added benefit of an open bar for our coctail hour, some small tea lights, centerpeices, a wedding cake and a champagne all also included in our package upon booking at Ft. Belvoir. If I had the chance to do it all over again, I will definitely book at the officers club again.

I made an appointment to tour the venue but the person I spoke to on the phone wasn't working when I arrived. I'm not sure why she scheduled the appointment if she wasn't going to be there. An older man awkwardly showed us around but he seemed to be falling asleep and not at all interested in getting us to sign a contract or "sell" the venue to us. It was difficult to get our questions answered and they did not seem very accommodating. They kept pointing to the view probably to distract us from the disgusting smell and hideous decor. The only upside was the price -- it was the cheapest (they don't charge tax) but it was by far the worst venue. You get what you pay for.

The View – AH MAY ZING!. This is the reason we chose the facility. It went beautifully along with our beach themed wedding (closest we could actually get to the beach lol). The venue is all inclusive and comes with food items, table set up, linen, napkins, centerpieces, open bar (standard/premium depending on what u chose). Best value for your money – The wait staff that night was wonderful and they ensured that ll the guest we taken care of. Glasses were never empty and dirty plates did not sit long. Few guest complained about the beef being tough- however the beef I got was delightful (think they just wanted to complain lol) – I was told by sooo many ppl this was by far the best and the most fun they ever had at a wedding. I am glad we were able to pull everything off. Working with both Trinetta and Edwin, they always gave their professional opinions based on table sizes and table set up (color of napkins etc etc). Their recommendations were spot on. Overall I would recommend this venue, just ensure to have things documented and confirmed.
The few Cons to planning an event here: KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING and put it in writing. You will have to repeat yourself more than once, because it seems that no matter how many ppl you CC on an email – They do not recall or even seem to remember you at times lol. I started out working with Irma, then we spoke to Trinetta who we thought we would be working with, then ended up with Edwin. I was a little frustrated with Edwin b/c the things that Trinetta promised us and spoke with us about he attempted to charge extra (but b/c I had it all in writing) and even went in person to discuss my options again. We got what was promised and all the extras we needed (table number holders, easels, additional room). DOCUMENT, KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING. Ensure that your final Banquet of Event form have everything you requested.

I was so excited to have my wedding at Ft. Belvoir Officers Club. I didn't mind collecting drivers licenses from ALL of my guests because hey, we lucky enough to have it on a military base. My father is a retired Navy Captain so I have grown up on military bases and have gone to O clubs in the past. I was so happy to celebrate my reception at the O Club at Ft. Belvoir. It started off great with the planning process. I knew we were not going to be eating 5-star food at the reception- I was paying for the ambiance at a riverside location. The day of the wedding things fell apart. They had scheduled only ONE bartended for my wedding reception, unbeknownst to me. Yes, 135 people and one bartender. During the party, I asked the manager on site, Edwin what was happening with the bar situation. He ignored me. So unprofessional.
The food served at dinner was bland, over priced at $150/head and frankly embarrassing to me. We were told the filets would be cooked Medium (per our prior tasting) and they were all burned. Our side of red skinned mashed potatoes were NOT fresh nor homemade like we had been told by the management staff at the tasting, but were straight from the box. I would have been better off at Popeye's. Again, so embarrassing for me as this food was being served to my closet friends and family. The ONE bartender was a total mess and nasty to me and my wedding guests. She actually told my mother to go away when she asked for water. I followed up with ALL managers post wedding. They were unresponsive. I finally had to drive to Ft. Belvoir and demand for an acknowledgment. The manager Xenia was so rude and aggressive. She refused to listen to me or even offer an apology for the food and the bartender.
So know what you are getting into before you sign the contract. Make sure you have EXACTLY what you will be eating in writing as well as the number of bartenders and pray it is not that nasty woman bartender that day.

If you are looking for a great, more "inclusive" venue where not every single item is a la carte, this option is for you! It's a beautiful location overlooking the Potomac River and the food is terrific. We opted to have both the rehearsal dinner and reception here and we were extremely pleased with both events. The vendors they recommended for D.J., flowers and cake were all outstanding as well and the cake and part of the flowers were included in the "package" price. Edwin in particular was extremely responsive and gave us great advice all along the way, since we started planning the wedding almost a full year ahead of the event. Our wedding ceremony was at 5:30 PM on a Saturday and we had the Club pretty much to ourselves for the entire evening, as no other events were scheduled. We also rented a house on Post, called the Thermo-con House for two nights, which served as "wedding central" for the bride and bridemaids on Friday night and early Saturday for hair and make-up and was also the honeymoon suite for the bride and groom Saturday night - GREAT option! We highly recommend this venue and intend to let friends know that you don't HAVE to be military or have a military family member to reserve it.

I did not have my ceremony here, but I did have my rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, and reception here. I was very happy with their services and their packages. Everything was set up exactly how I had it pictured, and the food was delicious. The staff is friendly and very helpful, particularly Trinetta, with whom I worked the most. I would certainly have another event here if the occasion called for it!

Trinetta and Irma were so wonderful to work with!! I was planning my daughter's wedding (she lives in Wichita), which was the first time I've done this and must admit was nervous at times. The two ladies calmed me assuring me all would go well. And it did! We had the Belvoir Rm for the reception (she got married at the Old Chapel on base) and it was beautiful. We appreciated the suggestions they made in our planning process as we were inexperienced. Ft. Belvoir is a beautiful venue to have a wedding reception and the value/cost unbeatable.

I was pleased with Fort Belvoir Officers Club for our reception site!! The moment we stepped into the Belvoir Room and saw the view of the Potomac River we were sold!! The facilities are beautiful and well maintained and it was great to have our reception at the historic location! I must say the staff was extremely accommodating!! I worked with Edwin Villoso and Irma! Both were wonderful to work with and did not bat an eye when I brought in a substantial amount of components for the centerpieces, guestbook, etc. For a fee (but so worthwhile), the staff at Fort Belvoir set up everything and I could not have done it better myself!! Everything was perfectly placed down to the last sunflower! I was also pleasantly surprised to see that they creatively used some of the extra supplies I had provided them in unique ways around the venue that I never would have thought of!! The food and service were impeccable! But, of course, I would expect nothing less from the well-oiled machine that is Fort Belvoir! I would highly recommend this beautiful, historic location to any couple!
