Love is in the air, and if you or someone you love is looking for the perfect, intimate setting for a wedding, elopement ceremony, and/or reception location, then the Athenaeum might be the ideal place for that special occasion.
The Athenaeum is a well-preserved, beautiful historical site with a gallery featuring exemplary contemporary art in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The building features impressive Neoclassical Greek Revival architecture from the 1850s, and the interior gallery has wonderful wood floors and large windows that bring in amazing natural lighting. It is a space where you can enjoy the ambiance and dance the night away.
But that’s not all of the lovely features! The Athenaeum's courtyard is also available for that “secret garden” feel, as it's surrounded by beautiful brick walls containing remnants of the past, such as iron hardware and arched openings that remain tantalizing links to another time.
If this sounds like a match for you, we look forward to working with you to ensure your special day is more than memorable!
