We chose The Woodlands at Algonkian for our October 11, 2014 wedding based on the price point and our tour of the site--the outdoor ceremony area is lovely, but they also have a backup plan in place for inclement weather, which was important to us. We ended up needing to use the reception space for our ceremony due to rain, and the ceremony was beautiful. Anna and her team were a pleasure to work with, and Anna was always very quick to respond to our emails. The option to rent onsite cottages (they are not guaranteed to be available for the wedding party, but we chose to rent those that were available) was also great. We highly recommend this venue site!

Anne is very helpful, calm, personable, and accommodating. Email seems to be the best form of communication and she responds very quickly and professionally to your emails. She's very knowledgeable and helpful in helping you or providing suggestions to make the planning process as easy and stress free as possible all the way up to the last day before the wedding.

Wow this place is beautiful! I everything went smoothly and was perfect. In the weeks leading up to the ceremony, my emails and calls were always met with a day-of response. Even on the day when I walked in and changed a few details, they were right on it. My day of coordinator was professional and took control after our pictures went over time. She completely changed the schedule to make it fit and everything ran perfectly smoothly! Do not be afraid to use the in house caterer either. All of the food was delicious and we got so many complements!

(This was only our Reception venue - we had our ceremony elsewhere.)

Our experience at Algonkian was fantastic. Anna Cote took great care of us from the start, and there were numerous small details that they took care of for us with no extra charge, such as providing table card holders.

The service was professional and thorough, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering this venue.

The only issue we experienced was not really their fault, which was that the main room is a little crowded with 24 tables! (We had a guest list just under 200) They told us this ahead of time, so we were prepared for that and it didn't detract a lot from the experience.

Anna was a pleasure to work with. She made the planning very easy as was there to help out the morning and day off which was so great. This is a beautiful venue. I am from Colorado and wanted a mountain feel, or as much as I could get in the DC area. This was it!

I'm so glad I found this venue. It was beautiful already and had so much potential for a bride to make it her own. Anna and Serena were great to work with and did everything to accommodate us. They even gave us a place to store all our things the night before which was SO helpful as it gets so busy during wedding weekend! My husband and I love this place and definitely recommend it!

The only suggestion I would make is that they get new chairs for the outdoor ceremony, the ones they had were okay but kind of outdated and old.

My daughter's wedding reception was held at The Woodlands at Algonkian on November 17th and I highly recommend this facility for any special occasion. The coordinator, Anna Cote, was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. From start to finish, she made sure the facility was ready for the big day and everything ran so smoothly - not an easy task with 140 guests. We heard so many compliments from our guests about our choice of venue. The stonework was very impressive and we especially loved the mirrored glass by the dance floor. Even as we look at wedding photos, you can see so much more because of the reflections in the mirrors. Our DJ even said the acoustics were perfect for the music. We looked at several other venues before choosing The Woodlands and we absolutely made the right decision!
