Katie Martin design at Lee Fendall

One of our fall weddings featured floral designs by Katie Martin, owner of Elegance and Simplicity. Check out some images of her work on her blog. Elegance and Simplicity’s designs looked amazing with the linens and tableware from Design Cuisine and DC Rental.

The lighting in the tent was magical after dark.

We’re looking forward to seeing the professional photos- they should be fantastic!

It’s the small things

Small details can make all the difference in an event. These personalized napkins in a bright color were a small but fun touch. The squirrels tie in nicely with the Lee family crest, too!


Fall weddings at Lee Fendall House

We have been lucky to host some truly lovely weddings this fall. Here are just a few photos:

This was one of the most personal wedding ceremonies we’ve seen- the brother of the bride and the sister of the groom performed the ceremony!

Events of Historic Proportions

Alexandria architecture

Built in 1785, the Lee Fendall House was home to thirty-seven members of the Lee family (1785–1903), hundreds of convalescing Union soldiers (1863–1865), the prominent Downham family (1903–1937), and powerful labor leader John L. Lewis (1937–1969).

You become a part of that history when you host your event at the Lee Fendall House.  You and your guests will join a long line of Lee Fendall guests that include George and Martha Washington, Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee, and John Quincy Adams.
