Our Favorite Washington DC Wedding Venues for 2024
Dear brides, we know how hard it is to find a venue. There are so many out there. Where do you even start? As a Washington DC wedding photography duo, having photographed our fair share of weddings, we have some locations we absolutely LOVE! Check out our favorite wedding venues in Washington DC. Hope these tips are helpful in planning your wedding.
01. Army Navy Country Club
The Army Navy Country Club has a great location and gorgeous ballroom. The best ballrooms to photograph are ones with high ceilings and white walls, since they bounce light. It makes the space look very spacious and well lit. Layne and Scott’s wedding was actually picked for BEST WEDDING in Arlington, Virginia in 2017 by Arlington Magazine!
02. District Winery
A winery IN the District of Columbia?! Yes, please! This stunning waterfront venue is run by an amazing team and has gorgeous sunset views over the Anacostia River! We still get tons of compliments about how amazing Brian and Maggie looked in their wedding photos.
03. Watergate Hotel
This place is the ultimate venue when it comes to having a gorgeous view and lots of space! The ballroom has lots of windows, which we photographers love! And you can’t forget to get the ultimate iconic image on the 18th hole. The Watergate Hotel has unique and modern spaces paired with the historical DC vibes, the perfect place to welcome your mostly out-of-town guests to the city. If you’ve ever stepped foot in the hotel, you know it is stunning!
04. The Willard InterContinental
The Willard is an elegant hotel with over 200 years of historical significance. The customer service is spot on and very pro-active in meeting your needs. We personally recommend Lindsay. To say that she is “all-over-it” is an understatement at best. Our couples raved about the food and the service. The location of the hotel is also ideal to see and visit DC. The moment you walk into the hotel, you will feel elegance surrounding you in their marble columns and opulent ballrooms.
05. The Cosmo Club
The Cosmo Club is SO beautiful and authentic. If you looking for class, sophistication and something UNIQUE to DC this venue has it all and more. This really is such a special space and made our event so memorable. The atmosphere is old world DC. If you have the necessary connection to host your wedding reception at the Cosmos Club we recommend it!
06. InterContinental - The Wharf
Beautiful hotel right on the water. The main ballroom is breathtaking and is above ground with wall-to-wall windows looking out on the Potomac river. The perfect venue for a modern DC wedding. The view and hotel decor are so spectacular. Lauren is the event coordinator and was such a pleasure to work with throughout the process. It’s truly the perfect venue with the most amazing staff, and we feel SO lucky to have captured Jessica and Eric’s wedding there!
