The Atrium at Meadowlark was the only venue we saw. We came there on a spring day (about 1 year before our actual wedding) when it was pouring rain outside. Despite rain the place was so beautiful that my fiancé and I looked at each other and almost instantly decided that this was it. The atrium itself is so beautiful with flowers, trees and streams making it look like a secret garden. There is a ton of natural light. One of the things that really appealed to us about this place is that we wanted to have our wedding outside, but if that was compromised by weather we could still have it in a beautiful indoor space. The atrium is perfect for that. In addition, the surrounding outdoor gardens are so beautiful with amazing photo and video opportunities! Luckily, we had a perfect day without any rain. The venue really made our day feel magical and we highly recommend it!

My daughter interested to have her wedding in a garden . The atrium at Meadolark Botinical gardens is so beautiful and memorable for wedding ceremony and reception . Wayne as a manager and all executive staff were responsive , helpful , kind and cooperative . Our guests could step outside and enjoy the whole garden during the cocktail hour . I highly recommend this venue to everyone who wants nature and elegance together .

We had my daughter's winter wedding (180 guests) at the Atrium and used the in-house caterer Great Blue Heron. There is a winter discount! The venue is open everyday until 2:30 so we had plenty of opportunities to go over to scout, measure, take photos for planning and that really helped. You work separately and together with the Atrium staff and the GBH staff. They were all very responsive and nice to work with. This place makes for a magical looking winter wedding. All the greenery and white poinsettias created a lush environment so any additional flowers would just be a waste. White lights in the trees inside and outside. Our guests had free access to the Winter Walk of Lights and got a huge kick out of taking a stroll during the reception. I would strongly advise to use GBH - they know what they are doing in this space. We heard all night and after that guests had never had such great food at a wedding. Brian is the head chef but I think runs everything and we had a number of conversations with him personally about set up. They really do try and be flexible even though you are in a regional park facility. The bride and groom are vegetarians and we had many people with serious gluten/nut allergies. They created a menu lacking for nothing and they put up the dietary descriptions we created. We had vegetarian, pasta, fish and chicken and don't think for a minute you are missing out by not having beef. And very important, it all was as delicious at the end of the buffet as it was at the beginning. The passed apps and stationary apps were killer. Because this was a winter wedding, the ceremony and table area is the same. They set up the whole room, move the tables to the side and set up the chairs for ceremony seating. As people moved across the little stream to bar area for cocktail hour they move it all into place in about 12 minutes. People were amazed because it is so quick and quiet.

This place is gorgeous. We had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago, and it was the perfect backdrop to a wonderful ceremony and lovely setting for our reception. What's great about the Atrium is that even if it rains, the staff can bring the whole ceremony inside within 5 minutes - and you're still surrounded by real trees, greenery, and a stream. Also, for those who want a little extra time with photographers and videographers - this is THE perfect spot. We didn't have to travel anywhere to find a scenic spot for wedding photos, we simply walked 20 feet from the front door into the gardens, took formal photos within 10 mins with family and the wedding party, and then the rest of the time was ours. Meanwhile, our guests were walking around the gardens during cocktail hour. The Atrium at Meadowlark consistently responded to all of my questions and were quick to provide all the needed information. It was great working with Wayne especially - we could tell he was very experienced and understood weddings like the back of his hand. When we were going through the 30-day walk-through with him, he mapped out our entire wedding flow and the set up ( where to place tables, ceremony, gift areas, program baskets) within minutes. He was super friendly, accommodating, and very professional. Meadowlark's trees and greenery set the perfect mood for our wedding - we're so glad we chose this venue. The "getting ready" area, the Lilac room, was onsite, which made for easy logistics with vendors. We didn't have a planner, and we don't regret that at all - we had a strong team that easily communicated and navigated through the straightforward floor plan. Overall, we highly recommend this place!! Thank you, Wayne & team! ~ N & A

The Atrium was the perfect place to get married. The botanical gardens are beautiful and were perfect for pictures. The venue itself is wonderful. With all the plants and natural beauty, you won't need to spend a bunch of extra money on decorations. They have a perfect patio for the ceremony, if you want to do it outdoors. And the people at the atrium are great. We worked mostly with Ilka, who was professional, responsive, and understanding.

Even in February, this is a beautiful location for photos! Check in with your photographer at the main office so he or she can get a badge. Best times are morning and late afternoon (golden hour lighting) and there are an absurd number of picturesque locations to shoot at. Just bring comfy shoes to walk between as there are a few hilly parts.

We wanted to do a small/medium winter wedding but wanted to stay away from the hotels and country club feel. The atrium was perfect. Their venue was beautiful and picture perfect. It's in a beautiful and convenient neighborhood near Tyson's Corner. The lighting is nice and becomes very elegant at night. The plants and foliage saved us a lot in floral and lighting costs. We didn't really have to do much and it was beautiful. Ilka and Wayne are helpful and responsive. Their insights helped us save on having to hire a wedding planner for a lot of the day of logistics. They also include a lot of details (chairs, arbor, ceremony chairs, etc..) if you go through their caterer that other places were trying to upcharge us for. We also used the in house caterer and are glad we did. I am picky about my food and they were delicious. They have a wonderful selection and Brian the chef thinks through the menu to keep it from feeling like a dreary standard hotel meal. They also had a nice discount in February because it was off peak. We are thrilled we chose the Atrium as our venue. It was a perfect backdrop for a perfect day.

This is an amazing venue. I could not have asked for a more spectacular wedding. They were a dream to work with and their staff is top notch. The food was amazing - the grounds, of course, are beautiful...I just can't recommend them highly enough.

The Atrium was the perfect place for our wedding reception and the Garden Gazebo was a beautiful location for our ceremony. The Staff were extremely attentive to our needs and desires and helped make our wedding fantastic. They had no problems working with a gay couple and made us feel extremely comfortable and welcomed. We could not be more pleased. The surroundings are just amazingly beautiful and so well kept. It was like a wedding in paradise.

OMG this place was AMAZING! Not only was the place possibly the most beautiful venue ever with its natural floral decor everywhere and beautiful lighting, but the people who work there are some of the nicest people we worked with to put on our wedding. We loved how they have the flexibility to move the wedding indoors quickly if it had rained (luckily it didn't). And the grounds themselves outside the venue are so beautiful as well, they made for great wedding photos. Worth every penny and more.

I am an out of state bride and they have been so helpful through this process. They accommodate my gluten/lactose free requests. Answer questions within 24 hours and have really made the wedding planning process easy. Cant wait to have my New Years Eve Wedding there!

We loved our venue, and so did all our guests. We spent virtually $0 on decor since it's beautiful all on its own. We were lucky to get a Friday the 13th discount, have the Walk of Lights available to our guests, and great service from the venue staff. I think choosing this venue took a lot of extra to-do's off our wedding planning--they covered so much for us!
