I photographed a wedding at the mount Vernon inn restaurant and it was great since the ceremony was tented. If it rained it would have been covered. I’ll think on some other ideas close to DC and get back to you.

We didn’t look at Decatur House or Glen Echo for our own wedding. My nephew has had birthday parties at Glen Echo (just using their tables and play areas, not like a reserved event like a wedding) and it seemed like a fun place to get married. Cheaper rates too since it’s a park.

  • Wedding: April 2015

Have you looked at the Tudor house and gardens. We got engaged there and were considering it. I don’t know if it meets your specifications but at the right time of year, it’s just beautiful.

The DAR was beautiful for the wedding though, I don’t know what the rain plan was because the weather decided to cooperate but I know they had one-it was suppose to be thunderstorms and showers all day.

  • Wedding: June 2015 - Redondo Beach Historic Library

I photographed a wedding at Ceresville Mansion and it was an absolutely gorgeous space. Not sure how far it is from the airport though.

deesee27:  It seemed to go pretty well! They all congregated where the live band was in the larger room for dancing, toasts, and cake. I liked it a lot personally. If you want, you can PM me and I’m happy to share a link to the wedding I photographed there. Just dont want to post here for privacy reasons.

deesee27:  I’m not sure if you’ve already found a venue, but I will recommend mine 🙂  Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket, VA .  Our guests stayed in Manassas, Va as we had quite a few fly into Dulles Airport.

 

We had a very nice garden ceremony and reception inside.  We had a DJ, but the reception space will hold a band!
