Top 5 DMV Luxurious Wedding Venues
DMV area has a lot to offer when it comes to luxury wedding venues. Washington DC alone offers beautiful architecture and some incredible high end hotels. After all we are talking about the nations capital. But bordering DC, you can find some amazing gems when it comes to opulence and grandeur. Bellow are my top 5 dmv luxurious wedding venues.
The Bellevue Event and Conference Center – Chantilly, VA, about a 30 minutes car ride from Washington DC this venue offers stunning elements found in many of the beautiful DC museums architecture. In the main room you will find some spectacular chandeliers. They have three different rooms, so essentially you could have your ceremony in one, cocktail in another and their most wanted room, for the reception and party. Fully equipped with sound system, lights and other effects you can easily transform an elegant dinner into a club or concert like atmosphere. Not much going on the outside besides parking, but they do offer a roof top where some couples choose to have their wedding ceremony and outdoor portraits
Omni Shoreham Hotel – Washington DC, offers a resort-like retreat in the middle of the nation’s capital. Stunning lobby, ballrooms and hotel rooms, but one of it’s amazing features for a DC wedding venue is its outdoor private garden. Offering lush greenery in the warm months and a beautiful dome like gazebo for couples who wish to state their intentions as the sun goes down.
Andrew Mellon Auditorium – Washington DC. This entire venue and its surroundings makes it one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding in Washington DC. Indoors it is grand and stunning. Outdoors the possibilities for photos are endless. Rain on shine on your wedding day, this venue has you covered.
The Grand – Baltimore, MD, it is a masonic temple constructed in 1866 and it is hard to explain in words. Every room, staircase and hallway it is absolutely stunning and unique. If you are lucky and no one else has an event that day (and if I am your photographer I pray for that) we get to explore many of its gorgeous rooms with stunning light or no light at all and create some unique portraits. A visit to this place is a must.
The St. Regis Washington DC Last, but not least in the top 5 dmv luxurious wedding venues it is located walking distance from the White House. It offers a beautiful garden in the warm months and in the cold months they actually have a luxurious tent for ceremonies. Its staff is extremely friendly and dedicated to its guests. They truly know how to offer a luxurious experience all around.
