Does your fiancé want to wed in an urban setting, while you’ve always pictured of an outdoor garden affair? There’s no need for either of you to sacrifice your wedding dreams thanks to today’s venue. Sewall-Belmont House & Museum is located right in Capitol Hill with excellent access to public transportation, yet it provides an intimate outdoor space once you step onto it’s grounds. In fact, it’s the one and only historic home and garden for rent on the Hill! The house was purchased in 1929 by the National Woman’s Party and played an integral role in the movement for equality. This beautiful Washington, DC venue can accommodate up to 150 guests and they can all enjoy the museums exhibits, in addition to the “I dos.”
Sarida and Andy chose this picturesque DC landmark for their daytime nuptials, utilizing the garden for the ceremony, terrace for cocktail hour and tent for the reception. As captured by Marta Locklear Photography, their bright yellow and gray color palette lent itself well to the light and airy outdoor space while adding a nice contrast to the traditional brick home.

Morgan and Mitchell also said I do in Sewall-Belmont’s garden and as you can see, little decor is needed to create a beautiful ceremony when you have such a lush built-in backdrop. Their reception fell after sunset where the tent and terrace were lit up with lots of romantic lights allowing for dancing (Sewall-Belmont can accommodate 120 guests for a seated dinner and dance floor) long into the night!
