Why We Like This Place

Here are 5 reasons why Woodend Sanctuary and Mansion is an impressive choice for DC Metro area wedding venue:
1. Woodend Mansion’s a true historic landmark: The mansion was designed by early 20th-century architect John Russell Pope, who’s also responsible for such gems as The Jefferson Memorial and National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The Greek-style portico is a dead giveaway for those who know Pope’s distinctive style.

2. Woodend Mansion’s Great Hall, with its Palladian window, Georgian architecture and stately staircase, is perfect for a dramatic bridal entrance.

3. Outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions overlook tall, slender trees and a peaceful wildflower meadow.

4. Woodend Sanctuary is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from Bethesda, Maryland and 30 minutes from Washington, D.C.

5. Rental proceeds go to a good cause: straight to the local Audubon Naturalist Society’s conservation and education programs (and a portion of your fees are tax-deductible!)
