Turn your micro wedding event into a macro enchanting experience at Residence Inn by Marriott, Fair Lakes.
You might be asking, “What is a micro wedding and why should I want one?” A micro wedding is an in-style festivity that caters to less than 50 guests for a more intimate, less stressful, budget-friendly, but still beautiful event. Celebrities and influencers alike are participating in this trend all across the world. Somewhere between elopement and a big bash, micro can be just as lovely in setting, filled with amazing cuisine and drinks, and as festive as a macro wedding, only better. There are no crowds, yet family and friends celebrate with you; there’s less stress, less to plan for; and much, much better on the budget. It just comes down to the perfect sized venue with impeccable qualities.
Cozy yet spacious, 40 to 50 guests will feel at home in the recently renovated property of the Residence Inn by Marriott, Fair Lakes. Inside and out has been completely reimagined. Suites inside are spacious and homey, appointed with clean modern charm. The meeting rooms have a reconfigurable air wall allowing for expanded space, perfect for a catered indoor event or reception. There is even an option for a lovely cathedral backdrop for your indoor ceremony. However, the most remarkable feature of the property is the beautiful outdoor garden.
Imagine yourself getting married, or renewing your vows, under a solid cedar wood pergola draped with luxurious fabric. Around you are seasonal planters on a bluestone patio that can be customized and decorated for your event. Seating for your micro wedding guests is set out to your taste, and the area can convert to a charming seating area with a fire pit. The possibilities are up to you with extra lighting, and cozy tents are available to protect from any unwanted elements. This is also a perfect place for a cocktail hour. Not planning on spending the night? Space-only packages include a complimentary bridal suite overlooking the garden ceremony site.
The team at the venue has had years of experience catering events and meetings all with the signature service quality Marriott is renowned for. As Hannah Adlam, General Manager, who has over 18 years of experience, said, “Everything about our property is cozy and intimate. Our associates take great pride in making sure our guests feel like family when they walk through the door. We have also hand-selected world-class wedding professionals to join our family as partners in creating the perfect wedding for couples.”
The perfect venue isn’t just the perfect-sized space with impeccable qualities. It’s also about location! “The Residence Inn Fair Lakes is nestled in a quiet residential area within walking distance of bars, restaurants and stores,” said Adlam. “It is also a stone’s throw from high capacity roads and interstates (U.S. 50 and I-66), and equally distant from [Dulles and Reagan National] airports, making access convenient for out of town travelers.” What traveler wouldn’t want to stay in the comfortable, spacious and clean rooms of the Residence Inn Fair Lakes, and be right there for your wedding?
