@Planningfor2013:  Can you “legally” get married in DC (courthouse/JOP) and then just have a wedding/reception outside of DC? You should also use the search function on here to find the other threads on venues.

I’m getting married myself at Mount Vernon (the Restaurant on the premises does weddings) and I know they do have options for small weddings and you can use their site.  It’s not in the District but there is a shuttle from the Huntington metro out to it if it’s an issue with guests wanting to take the metro to the weddings.  

 

Other options I’ve seen for a small wedding include the Longview Gallery and Arts Club.  I did see pictures from a wedding at Charlie Palmer Steak that looked nice b/c they have an outdoor area overlooking the capitol.  

If you or your groom has a military connection, you could check out the Officers Club at Fort McNair.  The Odyssey Boats and the Spirit Boats also do weddings.

Another thing you could try is getting a permit to get married at the Jefferson Memorial or Old Stone House and then having your reception at a nearby restaurant.  The permits are online through the NPS.

How about Old Ebbitt?  They have a stunning rooftop view of the city, and I’m pretty sure they aren’t completely ridiculously priced.

You should also check out Wedding Wire’s reviews of venues.   I’ve heard Arts Club can be reasonable.  GW also rents out space for weddings.

My brother was married at the Dupont Circle (formerly Jury’s) hotel. They had space for a ceremony, cocktail hour in the hotel’s fancy restaurant (was very cool! lots of windows and great city street view during cocktail hour), and sit-down reception with round tables, bar, and dance floor. I have no idea what the venue costs, but maybe that could work?
