Turn your micro wedding event into a macro enchanting experience at Sonesta ES Suites Fairfax, 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 Sonesta ES Suites Fairfax, 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.

Outdoor Amenities

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.
