Today’s virtual venue tour is grand and gorgeous, befitting for the most elegant wedding celebrations in the DC area.  The National Museum of Women in the Arts is devoted to showcasing the artistic accomplishments of women and the building’s historic opulence provides a magnificent setting for ceremonies and receptions of up to 320 guests.  With multiple options for transforming the venue into a space perfect for your affair, brides dreaming of chandeliers, dramatic staircases and walls swathed in fabric… get ready to meet your match!

Lindsay and Ryan’s wedding size allowed them to transform one single space of the museum into both their romantic ceremony and their glamorous reception, as captured by Tiana Simpson Photography.  Weddings with under 170 guests, like theirs, are able say “I do” in the Great Hall and then enjoy dinner and dancing in the same awe-inspiring space. While the guests enjoy cocktail hour on the mezzanine or in one of the notable galleries, the Hall below is flipped from picturesque ceremony to a reception space fit for royalty.

Brides and grooms like Anne and Patrick, who have larger guest counts, can still enjoy a ceremony in the Great Hall (and utilize those stores for the grandest entrance and getaway!).  After their nuptials, coordinated by Bella Notte and photographed by Freed Photography, they enjoyed dinner on the mezzanine overlooking the Great Hall, which has now become an expansive dance floor.  This provides the perfect layout for everyone to view your special first dance, and for older guests to overlook the action below as the night goes on!
