Historic Tree Ceremony Space

Picture this: A 250 year old oak tree surrounded by rolling fields and lush forests. Your friends and family are seated in the 18 church pews underneath the tree’s gorgeous canopy, awaiting your walk down the aisle. This ceremony site is one-of-a-kind for the area (I have not seen anything similar offered at any venues in Northern Virginia). For decorations, consider draping soft, flowing fabrics or fairy lights across the branches to add a touch of whimsy and romance. Floral arrangements featuring seasonal blooms can wrap around the base of the tree and the aisle. Personalized touches, such as a handcrafted arch, can further reflect your unique style, making your ceremony beneath the oak tree an unforgettable experience.
