The Best Wedding Venues in Washington, D.C.

I have been working in Washington DC as a wedding photographer for over 5+ years. I have photographed at so many beautiful DC Wedding Venues. These are a few personal recommendations for the Best Wedding Venues in DC.


  1. The Line DC

The Line DC is one magical hotel and wedding venue. It is filled with a gorgeous bar and restaurant right when you walk into the venue. Upstairs is a gorgeous seating area for guests. There are endless places for wedding portraits. Here is a wedding that I recently did at The Line DC.



2. St. Regis Hotel

The St. Regis Hotel is one of the most beautiful venues in Washington, D.C. It is filled with beautiful windows and a gorgeous ceremony space. This fall I am photographing a wedding there and I can’t wait!


3. DC War Memorial

Oh the DC War Memorial is such a timeless and classic ceremony space in Washington, D.C. I have photographed over 10+ elopements at the DC War Memorial and I never get tired of this space. If you are looking for the classic DC white columns, this is one of the best spots in Washington, D.C. to have your wedding.

4. The National Gallery of Art 

The National Gallery of Art is one of the most beautiful museums in Washington, D.C. There are so many different backdrops and locations for photos. My favorite spot for photos is in the underground light tunnel that connects the East and West buildings. The photo below is from an engagement session that I recently did at the National Gallery of Art. There are endless spots for ceremony spots.

The Dumbarton House is one of the best wedding venues in Washington DC. I have shot here over 6+ times and I never get tired shooting at this beautiful venue.

6. St. Francis Hall

St. Francis Hall is absolutely stunning wedding venue. It is filled with high ceilings and a beautiful outdoor space for couple photos. St. Francis Hall is located in the Brookland neighborhood. This wedding venue can have over 250+ people in the space. I am so excited to shoot a wedding here in January.


7. District Winery

District Winery is such a different Washington, DC wedding venue. It has two floors and a balcony that overlooks the Potomac River. There are so many cute spots for wedding photos inside the venue and outside. I highly recommend getting married at District Winery!


8. The Reach

The Reach is such a hidden gem in Washington, D.C. I always recommend this location to my couples, especially for engagement sessions. It is such a unique wedding venue, filled with modern architecture and gorgeous wedding backdrops.

9. The Lincoln or Tidal Basin 

The Washington DC monuments are some of my favorite locations for a ceremony or a wedding. For these locations a permit is required through the National Park Service.
