The most romantic wedding and reception venue in Washington DC is the Meridian House. The gardens are beautiful, an oasis in the city. The area with garden lights under the linden trees for a reception or a small ceremony is just magical. You'll feel like you are in an old world fairy tale. The mansion is just stunning. So much romance and character. If you want a mansion wedding this is the best wedding venue in DC. Be sure to plan time for your wedding pictures there are so many places for beautiful pictures out front of the mansion (including a sparkler exit) or in the garden. And inside the mansion too. It's a gem in Washington DC. I dreamed of photographing a wedding here and it certainly is even better than you'd imagine. It's simply stunning and did I mention romantic? Proving you can get married in the city and feel like you're worlds away. Hiring an experienced wedding photographer is so helpful so they can make the most of your venue, get all the best pictures and stay within a tight wedding day timeline. That will give you memories to treasure for a lifetime!
