In today’s virtual venue tour we’re taking you through Woodend Sanctuary.  This 40-acre estate in Chevy Chase, MD is just as divine as the name implies, offering six separate, unique spaces (and more!) for all your wedding festivities when you rent the venue.  Hemlock Grove offers the perfect, relaxed outdoor setting for your “I do’s” and the Great Hall and custom-tented terrace accommodates up to 150 guests for an elegant reception.

Justine and Zach’s wedding fell on a day ideal for utilizing every aspect of Woodend, and that they did!  Kelsey of k. thompson photography was there to capture it all, from their vows in the grove to cocktails in the portico and a classic reception under the open-air tent.

Included in Woodend’s rental package are back-up rain plans, and as you can see in this wedding from The Blonde Photographer, with a venue like this, the sacrifice is quite minor!  Mary Beth and Matt tied the knot on a very rainy day, holding both their ceremony and reception on the tented terrace.  The simplicity of the tent (plus a few fun lanterns!) made it easy for the space to share two purposes, and the great hall provided for a fantastic grand entrance and a spectacular dance floor!
