Review from the Bride:

We had our wedding at the National Arboretum in May 2023 and it was absolutely perfect! Working with Natalie and team was a breeze, and the venue perfectly met our expectations & vision for our wedding day. We had our ceremony in the meadow, cocktail hour in the herb garden, and reception in the Flowering Tree Pad and it was all stunning. For couples considering the Arboretum, I would recommend considering a few things – none of which hindered our experience: – Make sure you are really, really comfortable with your rain plan since the venue is primarily outdoors and DC weather is… DC weather! – The Arboretum is a great ‘blank slate’ venue — but that also means you have to bring in everything – Understand the considerations & costs with the various locations on the property you can have your wedding. We had our reception in the Flowering Tree Pad and there were a few things that snuck up on us (bathroom trailer, lighting the columns), but we are very happy we invested in the.
