The Antrim 1844 Hotel is a historic mansion serving as a hotel and location for couples’ weddings in the greater Washington, D.C. area.

This hotel, sitting on a gorgeous 24 acres of land, offers indoor and outdoor locations for wedding events.

If you are looking for a PERFECT location for your wedding this is it. The whole staff is meticulous in making your wedding amazing. The venue is STUNNING, a garden out of a fairytale. Our coordinator Katie Coon worked with us from the beginning to work out all the details, and was there on the big day to see that everything went accordingly to plan. This venue included nearly everything, so it took so much stress away from us. It even included a honeymoon sweet for the night. This is also where I got ready, but they tidied it up, put roses on the bed and we had champagne, our dessert, and my bouquet set up when we got back. They set up our decorations for the reception, they did everything after we arrived and gave them the decorations and everything we were bringing. One complaint people hear is that they get hungry at weddings, not here! Even our wedding party was met with Hors d'oeuvres and champagne when taking pictures . I felt like a queen, my glass was always full and everyone had an amazing time.

Antrim 1844 was the perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. The engagement was 18 months and we talked with three different wedding coordinators. All did a great job at the stage of the planning process they were involved in. Abbey was fabulous in her organization and communication and keeping things moving since we had to make the call to move inside for the ceremony due to iffy thunderstorms. The staff was running two by two with umbrellas escorting guests back to the mansion after the ceremony. The food was stellar and the staff was at our beck and call. Many guests had staff running them back and forth between their rooms on the golfcart. We could pick up our decor which had been used and stored the next day. Still wondering about 15-30 sparklers which didn't get used. Would definitely recommend Antrim 1844 for an event venue. (Mother of Bride)

Our wedding was at Antrim 1844 and we would highly recommend them! We booked our April 2018 wedding in December 2016 (16 months in advance). Some of the best things about Antrim were: • The property/gardens! The beautiful property and gardens is why we fell in love with Antrim after our first visit and is something that every single one of our wedding guests mentioned during our big day (and continue to tell us months later!). The romantic garden vibe made our wedding day feel absolutely magical. • The service! Impeccable. From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave, the staff were so friendly/helpful/professional. We felt like royalty! • The food! We enjoyed working with Chef Andrew Fontaine to create our own unique menu that our guests loved. Everyone has been to weddings with less than stellar food (green beans that taste as though they had been frozen, etc) but at Antrim - everything was delicious. • Our coordinator! Katie was an absolute joy to work with! Before our wedding day I probably emailed her hundreds of times and she graciously responded quickly and without ever making me feel as though I asked too many questions! I am extremely detail-oriented and before meeting Katie I was a bit worried about having things fall through the cracks or having things set up differently than I had envisioned. But our day went off perfectly and there wasn’t one thing that went wrong. Katie and her team set up/took down and kept everything on time! • Everything can be on-site! We had our ceremony in the Formal Garden, cocktail hour in the Mansion, and our reception in the Glass Pavilion. We also had about 25 of the 40 hotel rooms for our guests. Antrim gives you 5.5 hours (including the ceremony) which is pretty standard as far as weddings go but if I could do it again, I’d add an extra hour!

Antrim 1844 exceeded our expectations. Abbey Fry, our wedding coordinator, put us at ease from the very beginning. As a very detail-oriented bride, I was constantly thinking of things to worry about, but Abbey thought of everything and was very reassuring during the whole process. She responded to emails very quickly. On the day of, Abbey checked in with us several times. Abbey and her staff took care of the entire reception set up and tear down, which really relieved some stress! We were truly able to enjoy the day because we knew Abbey would take care of any problems (but of course, there were none). She also showed genuine enthusiasm for our day! We were able to walk around the grounds with our photographers ahead of time to scout out photo locations. The property itself is stunning. The bridal suite is absolutely perfect to get ready in and the staff cleaned it up before we spent the night. We had our rehearsal dinner on site, which was great. The morning after the wedding, we were able to have some additional family members who did not stay on site join us for breakfast. When we met with the chef, Andrew Fontaine, we were thrilled to be able to come up with appetizers and our meal from scratch instead of picking from a pre-determined list of options. He was very creative and suggested ideas, but was open to our ideas as well. We had a meal tasting ahead of time and got to choose wine to pair with our meal. Andrew checked in with us after our tasting to make sure we were satisfied with our choices. On the actual wedding day, everyone raved that they hadn't eaten such a good meal in a long time. Many of the men could not finish their plates. Our guests were also thrilled with the speed of dinner service. Although you have the option to purchase additional hours for your reception, you can also have an "after party" at the Pickwick Pub, which we loved. When it comes to cost, there truly are no hidden fees.

We got married at Antrim in December and our coordinator was Abbey. The staff at Antrim were absolutely amazing. When we initially booked our wedding coordinator was Beth and the rooming representative was Jasmyn. They then left and Abbey fit right in seemlessly like they were there from the start. We did have some issues with our rooming contract since they changed people, but the manage Jonathan Carow as well as Abbey made sure we were taken care of. Leading up to the wedding, Abbey was always so responsive in answering all my questions and if she didn't know an answer would always follow up when she had one. The day of the wedding everything went perfectly. Abbey made sure I did not have to worry about anything, from having breakfast delivered to us while getting hair and makeup done, to making sure we were on time, it was perfect. We received so many compliments on how seemlessly the day went as well as how beautiful the venue was, and all of our guests LOVED the food! When the wedding was over they set out a slice of cake from each of our tiers since we had different flavors, my bouquet, rose petals, and a small bottle of champagne for us to end the night. Antrim was beautiful to get married at and if we were to do it all over again would still go with Antrim!

Our experience at Antrim 1844 was absolutely magical. I knew as soon as I pulled in that this was what I had been looking for- beautiful grounds with a variety of places for our guests to hang out, and couldn't have been more pleased on our actual day with every detail! We worked with Abbey who was more than flexible with us and willing to help us out on some of our unique requests (s'mores, fire pit, etc). She was so responsive and helpful with ideas when I got stuck on some of the details. Chef was amazing- he did a great job with listening to what we wanted and helping us direct the menu in a way that would leave our guests really satisfied. In fact, many of our guests told us it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding (and we weren't a bit surprised!). From the moment we arrived all of the staff treated us well and made our day special and exciting. They had an ability of being available when needed and slipping away as we celebrated. They noticed that we didn't have time to eat our dinner and had two plates (and cake!) waiting for us in the bridal suite when our celebrations were over--they really noticed each detail and took care of us. Our guests have been raving about their experience and several are planning a trip back for date night at the restaurant or weekend away from the kids. As for us- I'm already looking forward to coming back for an anniversary trip. 100% recommend this place for a personalized, quality experience!

There is a reason that this is a 5 star establishment. I don't even know where to begin. I had my wedding here exactly one month ago and I am STILL getting comments on how wonderful Antrim was. Service was beyond amazing. I had Abby as my coordinator and I couldn't imagine anyone better. She and Antrim were very professional, quick to respond to any questions, and made my day so special. When a venue does between 1-3 weddings a week, you would think they would be more jaded and not go above and beyond for everyone... not so! Antrim makes you feel like royalty on your day! Next, the FOOD. Oh dear sweet baby jesus the food was AMAZING! We had Apps, a sit down dinner, and after party snacks. My husband and I were actually able to make it to our cocktail hour AND eat our dinner too. We weren't even hungry when we got to the cocktail hour... reason was they fed us while we were doing our photos. Every excellent appetizer and champagne was delivered to myself, husband, and my bridal party to enjoy while we were taking photos. Every time I thought, "hmm I'm a bit peckish", someone was behind me with a tray of food and beverages. Its like they read my mind! When we had dinner, it was hot and delicious. EVERYONE was talking about the food and how good it was. Lastly, the accommodations. We rented out every single room on Antrim's property for the night of the wedding. Each room has something special about it and it has a historical feel to it. I got tons of compliments on the beauty of the venue and the rooms. All in all I had a PERFECT wedding. Literally not one thing went wrong! I attribute this to Antrim and their service! 100% satisfied.

This was the first place i looked at and the last. Antrim provides you with everything, and there are no hidden costs. They provide the food, alcohol, rentals, wedding planner, room for bride and groom, and peace of mind. After i found them, there wasn't much else left for me to do. The staff is so helpful and polite, and I cant wait to come back for our anniversary. It is the most beautiful location i could have asked for to make my wedding absolutely magical.

The Antrim was a beautiful location for our August wedding - we couldn't have picked a better venue! We fell in love with the Antrim on our first tour and it did not disappoint on the wedding day! We looked at many venues and one of the reasons we chose the Antrim was because the indoor rain ceremony option is also beautiful. We were lucky to have perfect weather on the wedding day but we were happy knowing both options were beautiful backdrops. The buildings and grounds are so amazing and we loved how the Antrim was a "one stop shop" for many wedding items: hotel rooms for guests, space for hair and make up, breakfast the day after, lunch for the bridal party, after party bar, and late night snacks. We mostly worked with Tammy who was very professional and responsive to our many questions! We loved how we could design our own wedding menu as opposed to selecting from a list of options. The food was so delicious and we enjoyed trying it in the restaurant before the wedding. We know we will be spending many anniversaries at the Antrim!

The venue was beautiful and the food is truly amazing. We picked the place base on feedback on the food and the gorgeous atmosphere. We were not disappointed. Not only was the food great but the service was amazing. The Antrim team did everything they could to make my day special and make sure I was taken care of. From making sure I didn't faint to making sure I had my flowers they were amazing. Abbey did an amazing job. She came in two months out when my previous planner quit and she really worked hard to make sure my vision was executed. I am a control freak so I never give up control when planning events so my husband was shocked to see that I gave everything over to Abbey. But when you have a superstar for a planner thats what you do. She delivered the wedding of my dreams and made sure I was taken care of all night long. I recommend everyone going to Antrim 1844. They have the food, atmosphere and service down 100%. We will be going back for our anniversary every year.
