A historic mansion in the heart of Washington DC with a classic ballroom with high ceilings and a crystal chandelier is the best location for your first dance on your wedding day. And there's room for a live band too. As a wedding photographer in Washington DC I always see the first dance in black and white, it's so timeless and romantic and classic. I know this bride and groom will want to remember this wedding day moment forever and they have a picture so they will. The Meridian House is an historic mansion downtown Washington DC with much history and beauty. It is the best and most romantic wedding venue in Washington DC. And my favorite wedding venue in Washington DC. The inside, the front courtyard, and the back garden are all stunning and so old world European it will transport your wedding to another time and place.
