DC Wedding Venues {Untraditional Finds}

We love that DC has some fun spots for wedding receptions that are a little less traditional. Venues that are not ballrooms or historic homes or gardens. Maybe an unexpected rooftop or a fabulous restaurant space. Here are some of our faves . . .


Most folks in D.C. know this popular waterfront restaurant, but did you know you can buy it out for weddings? You can't beat the floor to ceiling glass and gleaming hardwood floors. Plus, you can use the outside terrace for a ceremony overlooking the water. Stunning!

101 Constitution

We adore this rooftop space with killer views of the Capitol and Washington Monument. If you love the idea of a blank canvas for a tented party, look no further!

 Clarendon Ballroom

Although it calls itself a ballroom, this fun space has a lot more character than what you expect when you think "ballroom." From the neon sign out front to the fabulous rooftop terrace to the nightclub cool vibe, this is a ballroom with serious style!

Carnegie Institution for Science

This space isn't exactly a historic home but it's the most beautiful science center you'll ever see. Small and intimate, we love the detailing and the dramatic marble floor!

Happy wedding venue hunting and Happy Friday!
