outside ceremony ideas

We are getting married october 12th of this year. It all happened kind of fast so we are working on a very restricted budget. We booked the hyatt at the reston town center for our reception and were hoping to have the ceremony at the great falls park, but we had to get a permit to have it there and we called and called and could never get in touch with anyone that could help us. We really want an outside ceremony. A park would be ideal, does anybody know of any parks or any other place where could have our ceremony? We just want something simple... we are having around 40-50 guests and the ceremony is going to be very short.

Ahh, good day-my birthday.

There is Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna.


They have an outdoor gazebo over a lake which is very popular wedding spot. Call them quick if you are interested.

If it isn't too late to change hotel venue, the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly has a gorgeous outdoor patio. We had our reception (<75) in their Presidential suite, which is two floors with fireplaces, outdoor patio (a different one than the wedding spot.)

Also look at Cabell's mill at Elanor C. Lawrence Park


or the mill at Colvin run
