The nation’s capital is a gorgeous location for walking down the aisle. What’s your favorite venue for a Washington-area wedding? Greg Powers, contributing photographer “As a photographer, a wedding venue has to have a unique background. The National Arboretum (usna.usda.gov) offers just that. The Capitol Columns, picturesque pond and endless greenery offer plenty of photo spots for wedding parties.” Phebe Wahl, national weddings editor “For an intimate and deeply personalized wedding, I can’t think of anywhere more special than The Inn at Little Washington (theinnatlittlewashington.Com). The charmingly idiosyncratic decor and world-class cuisine by ‘Pope’ Patrick O’Connell is sure to give guests a truly divine experience!” Kelly Magyarics, contributing writer “I think the best wedding venues in DC are on rooftops that take advantage of the city’s sweeping views, like the rooftop of the Newseum (newseum.Org) with the Capitol Building and the museums as a backdrop. Plus, wedding guests can enjoy the inventive cuisine of Wolfgang Puck, who operates The Source restaurant downstairs with chef Scott Drewno.” Jennifer Barger, contributing writer “My favorite place to attend a DC wedding has to be The Hay-Adams (hayadams.com)!There’s really nothing like a ceremony on their rooftop, overlooking the White House and all the monuments. Plus their receptions, which are usually downstairs in their paneled dining rooms, are like something out of the Gilded Age.” Nevin Martell, contributing writer “The Woodend Nature Sanctuary (anshome.org) in Chevy Chase provides a stunning natural backdrop for weddings, making it almost as Instagrammable as the newlyweds. Almost.”
