We got married the weekend after the 4th at Mt. Vernon so it had a very “Patriotic” feel to it. It was the hottest day of the year. In fact it broke record heat for DC. After our depature my husband had a pedicab meet us at our hotel (right next to the Tidal Basin) and then it took us for a ride around the National Mall and then to the Jefferson Memorial where our photographer met us for a few last shots. Here are some of my favorites!

@MsVoyageur: It wasn’t in the actual Mt. Vernon house but at Mt. Vernon Inn which is in front of Mt. Vernon but it was on the same property so we got married on George Washington’s land. They use to let people take pictures right infront of the house and the Potomac but they stopped that right before our wedding because of publicity.
Our ceremony was in the Inn’s Verandah and Sunken Garden and our reception was in the Inn’s “George Washington” room. They have a lot of weddings there and I was shocked at how reasonable they were. Only $31 a plate which is unheard of around DC (plus $1000 to rent the place out). We could have a “George and Martha” come and give a toast but George was $800 and MArtha was $400 so we declined on that. My husband really wanted to get married there as he found a blurb on ancestory,com that his great great great grandfather, John Hanson, use to meet George Washington at Mt. Vernon to “discuss the colonies’ future”. Our guests, especially the ones who were out of town, loved it!!!!
