Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's a striking glass and steel jewel set on an elevated ridge in Occoquan Regional Park. With the park's 350 acres of natural beauty, you'll have no shortage of photo opportunities—and it's an easy drive from the D.C. Metro area.
  • Host cocktails in the 1608 Room, a unique space that features exhibits highlighting John Smith's historic voyage on the Chesapeake Bay. Then, celebrate in the River View, where floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Occoquan River.
  • Your reasonable rental fee includes a full eight hours, use of the rooftop patio, a dedicated outdoor ceremony space, and the adorable Scale House Cottage to serve as your dressing suite.
