We are looking to do a very small (20 person) ceremony and reception. Does anybody have any suggestions on venues for a smaller group? We would really like an intimate and cozy space in the DC metro area (outside preferred, but could do in with the right setting).
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I’m getting married at the Mount Vernon Inn at Mount Vernon and they do small groups there. I was also posting on another thread about the Mansion on O Street b/c they have small packages as well. Another friend was married at the Tabard Inn and raved about it.

Thanks for this thread–I’m trying to do the same kind of wedding. I’ve found this site helpful as well: http://www.innvirginia.com/listings_by_specials.php?specialscat=38. I’ve been looking exclusively in Virginia for my wedding, so that site may not be as useful, but I’d bet Maryland or DC have the same kinds of sites.

ive never been there but pics of coco sala look nice. they have a rooftop and a patio garden.
you could also do the odyssey.

The Odyssey is really not very intimate; you either need to charter the entire boat, or you get a private room during a public cruise. Their public cruises are not as rowdy as Spirit, but still quite boisterous, especially if those guests are in a partying mood.
If you want to do it on the water, have a look at The Sequoia http://www.sequoiayacht.com/ It is a retired presidential yacht and I believe its capacity is only 28 or so for a sit-down reception so the size is right. it’s just gorgeous. We would have booked it in a heartbeat except it was a bit too small for our crowd.
Also try the Beacon House Hotel as they have a gorgeous roof deck and if you didn’t want your event during peak hours, they would probably let you have the whole space. Or try the Hillwood Museum in Rock Creek Park; it is the private home of the heiress to the Post Cereal fortunes, which was turned into a museum after her death. The grounds are stunning and the furnishings and art inside are amazing.
