Our Favorite Venues & Vendors

We’ve celebrated love and life in an amazing number of beautiful locations and with really amazing creative partners.  If you’re planning an event and undecided about the perfect spot or team to hire, we’d like to give a shout-out to some of our faves!

VENUES
DISTRICT WINERY
WASHINGTON, DC

There’s nothing more romantic than candles, wine, and the night.  District Winery is a coveted wedding space for its voluminous windows of city lights, warm ambience, and midcentury modern detailing.  Custom walnut tables, chairs, bar stools, marble topped bars and boutique wine made onsite are part of the artisanal “rustic elegance” District Winery emits. 

THE HOTEL
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

The Hotel might sound like a low-key situation, but there’s nothing low-key about it: posh, confident, & cutting-edge come to mind when faced with its stunning skyscape and sleek interiors.  The Hotel boasts the most contemporary audio-visual technology along with a grand ballroom, special occasion penthouse, & rooftop terrace to watch the sun set on a perfect day.

THE WESTIN
GEORGETOWN

Your guests will certainly thank you if you’re hosting them in The Westin.  This timeless icon in Georgetown is no stranger to decadence.  With eight spacious rooms  and a European-style courtyard to choose from, The Westin can service 250 guests.  If you need further insight, The Westin’s professional planners and culinary team are on call.

FOUR SEASONS
WASHINGTON, DC

“An icon at the entrance of Georgetown”: the luxurious Four Seasons.  You can’t go wrong with a five-star hotel at a historic entertainment district.  This is a sophisticated venue with lush décor and plenty of experience.  The Four Seasons also boasts “the best steakhouse in the city” – you’ll have to try it to find out.

FOUR SEASONS
BALTIMORE, MD

The Four Season’s sister location in Baltimore, Maryland shares the same classy and cultured aesthetic as its Georgetown counterpart.  You and your guests might enjoy your favorite cocktail on the rooftop pool or wind down at the in-house spa.  Waterfront views are a major plus, and there’s so much to explore at the Inner Harbor – only a 4 minute Uber away.

LONGVIEW GALLERY
WASHINGTON, DC

If you’re looking for a truly one-of-a-kind event, the transformative walls of Long View Gallery won’t disappoint.  A modern industrial building turned creative and social hotspot, Long View hosts unique pieces from local & national artists.  Every corner holds a new surprise as the exhibits change, making your event part of an irreplaceable experience.

MORAIS VINEYARDS
BEALTON, VA

A versatile location with scenic sprawling acreage, Morais Vineyards contains an intimate chapel, pergola with picturesque fountain, and  shimmering sunlit ceremony room.  The bridal suite is a charming French cottage equipped with vanity and fireplace.  Dignified interior earth tones impress amidst a natural paradise.  We heard the wine’s good, too.

“Understated luxe, discovery & allure” is the Intercontinental’s tagline,  and we agree.  A major draw to this location is the striking floor-to-ceiling waterfront view windows, pouring in natural light for the best photo op. It can host up to 400 guests and boasts a wedding specialist. Not to mention the prime location: If you haven’t checked out the Wharf yet, what are you doing?

Sagamore Pendry Baltimore embodies the city’s rich history, vibrant personality and idyllic harbor setting with character, inspiration and style. A beautiful, historic backdrop, a prime location with a stunning view of the Inner Harbor Baltimore, customizable event spaces for small and large gatherings.

PARK HYATT
WASHINGTON, DC

The Park Hyatt is a fashionable venue electrified by the energy of DC and its surrounding landmarks: the White House, Georgetown, Smithsonian, and more.  The décor is modern and stylish,  just like its staff of Michelen-starred culinary experts and event specialists.  The Hyatt offers a spa, pool, fitness center, and complimentary bridal suite.

THE ACCELERATOR SPACE
BALTIMORE, MD

There probably haven’t been many auto-dealerships repurposed into a gorgeous event utopia, but we doubt it could be done this well again.  Industrial-chic meets European fresh market at The Accelerator Space by Belvedere Square.  This is a super trendy venue with exposed ceilings and a cool steampunk vibe unlike any other.

LARZ ANDERSON HOUSE

A Neoclassical mansion — now a National Historic Landmark, dubbed a "Florentine villa" located in Embassy Row. This venue boasts marble-lined spaces able to accommodate a variety of functions, from large cocktail gatherings to intimate dinners and dances.
