In our time as wedding photographers, we have had the pleasure to photograph several weddings at The St. Regis Washington, D.C. And after every one, we have eagerly awaited the next opportunity to photograph another lucky couple’s St Regis DC wedding. There is something about that luxury hotel that makes it stand out from the rest of the best wedding venues in the Nation’s Capital. And given the quality of what you find in Washington DC, that’s saying a lot!

St Regis Washington DC Wedding: The Best of Luxury in the Nation’s Capital

We probably didn’t even need to mention that the Nation’s Capital is home to a superlative selection of wedding venues. Whatever your specific needs and preferences, Washington literally has dozens of beautiful locations that would fit perfectly. It has historic mansions and museums that commemorate our shared history. Many of the city’s art galleries, quirky loft spaces and trendy restaurants also host marriage celebrations. Gorgeous vineyards and other rural sites dot the outskirts of the DC metro area. The downtown area has luxury hotels whose grandeur rivals those in any other world capital. If you are looking for a high-end luxury hotel to host your wedding, though, you aren’t likely to do better than The St Regis, Washington, D.C.

What is it that makes this venue stand out in a city full of some of the world’s best locations for weddings? There are three reasons why a St Regis Washington DC wedding is something really special:

Great locations for gorgeous St Regis DC Wedding Photos

As with most of the top wedding venues in the Nation’s Capital, the St Regis DC’s allure begins with its location. Situated on 16th Street NW (one of Washington’s main arteries), the hotel is smack-dab in the heart of the city. Which we mean quite literally. It is very nearly in the geographic center of Washington (or at least where that would have been if the federal government had not given Arlington and Alexandria back to Virginia).

More importantly for you, though, the St Regis DC is within a short walk of some of Washington’s most famous landmarks. And that means that your St Regis DC wedding photos will include fantastic couples portraits! For example, the White House is just two blocks from the venue’s front door. From nearby Lafayette Square, your wedding photographers can get stunning pictures with that iconic building in the background.

In addition to offering an unobstructed view of the White House, Lafayette Square has beautiful fountains that look great in portraiture. Another block from that park is the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. That institution houses works that celebrate the rich and diverse creativity of American artists. As such, it is a great location for couples portraits if your tastes run to the more offbeat.

Elegant facilities that will blow your mind

The next reason why a wedding at the St Regis Washington DC shines is the venue’s facilities. Like most luxury hotels, it gives you the possibility of holding every part of your marriage celebrations within its walls. You and your bridal party can get ready in the venue’s opulent bridal suite. You can then tie the knot with your future spouse in either of the event rooms on the main floor or any of the four spaces below ground. Your party can then continue into the night in ballrooms that can fit anywhere from 30 to 300 guests.

Space to get married outdoors in the middle of the city

As we mentioned above, most luxury wedding venues in the Nation’s Capital are going to offer you this level of elegance. (Though few can match the opulence of this hotel’s interior!) A wedding at the St Regis DC, however, gives you an option that most of the others do not: the possibility of an outdoor ceremony. As you no doubt already know, having a wedding ceremony outside is not easy in the District. Especially if you want an open space that is still connected to a building of some sort. You can do outdoor ceremonies at places like the DC War Memorial, but you have no place nearby where you can get ready or hold a reception.

The St Regis Washington DC’s Astor Terrace, by contrast, gives you a space outside that is part of a venue that offers every amenity you and your guests could need. The courtyard adjoins the hotel’s main building and feels cozy despite accommodating up to 250 people. Hidden from the street by strategically placed bushes and trees, it offers you privacy even though you are outdoors. You can get married with a lovely view of the sky above and without distractions of the pedestrians and cars passing by on 16th Street NW.

Superlative Customer Service Experience at St Regis DC Wedding

The factor that really puts the St. Regis, Washington, D.C. above the rest, though, is its customer service. The best wedding venues in the city, no matter how luxurious, are only as good as their staff. The treatment and care you get from your venue coordinator and their colleagues will go a long way in determining how happy you are with your experience. We are quite confident that the weddings and events team at the St Regis will not let you down in that area. In every one of our dealings with them, we have found them to be responsive, efficient and welcoming. They are resourceful and always happy to find ways to make you happy on your wedding day. Throughout the marriage celebrations of the couple featured here, we overheard them commenting on how great their experience with the St Regis DC was.
