I am always on the hunt to find non-hotel reception halls for weddings. I searched for hours when I was engaged and will plan to continue the search so I can help others in the area that want unique places to have their wedding. I heard about this place a few weeks ago by word of mouth, but honestly, it had me at “old candy factory”.
It turns out that the building now houses a Center for the Arts (officially titled, “Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory“), but prior to 1984, the building was actually a functioning factory. Since 1984, the building was transformed by a group of artists and art lovers with hopes of enriching the quality of life in Northern Virginia through art performances and education.
Within the building, there are a few different rooms and floors you can rent for your wedding. There is a theater that would make for a fun and different ceremony location. Also, the art gallery floors would be awesome for a more modern reception. The exposed brick on the walls are to die for. Click here for a virtual tour of the different rooms. The rental prices are extremely budget friendly as well for this area!
For more information on booking The Candy Factory, you can contact the center’s Events Coordinator at 703-330-2787.
Let us know if you plan on having your wedding here! We would LOVE to feature some real wedding pictures from this awesome venue!
