The good news is that no matter your tastes, you’ll find one that is just what you’re looking for. For example, if you like the convenience and reliability of an indoor wedding venue, Washington DC has dozens of great options.

The Schuyler DC

This wedding venue is a ballroom located in the Hamilton Hotel. It is 12,000 square feet and can host up to 450 of your guests. Because it has a very minimalistic interior decor, it gives your wedding planner and decorator a blank canvas upon which to create something unique for you!

Today, the Watergate is a luxury hotel and wedding venue with signature event spaces, stunning views of the Potomac and understated elegance.
