The Washington DC area is lucky to be the home to so many great wedding venues, but if you’re searching for a non-traditional wedding venue, those can be harder to find. In today’s virtual wedding venue tour, we wanted to take you to an unexpected wedding venue that you just might fall in love with! Located along the waterfront of Southwest DC is Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater. With a stunning view, a plethora of architectural details and a theatrical history to boast, guests will be impressed from the moment they walk in and feel the dramatic tone of this wedding venue right in DC!
Thanks to Kate Haus Photography, we’re sharing a real Washington DC wedding to get a closer look at some of the spaces that really show off what this modern and unique Washington DC venue has to offer!
For Jen and John’s classic DC wedding, the spaces at Arena Stage set the scene for a stunning reception. During cocktail hour, guests mixed and mingled in the intimate setting of Bank of America Lower Lobby that can accommodate up to 125 standing guests, or 70 seated guests. The celebration continued in the adjacent Molly Smith Studio which houses an extensive theatrical library with material dedicated to American theater. Tucked between the 56′ glass curtain wall and the exterior of the fully-restored, historic Fichandler Stage, the Study can hold up to 225 guests standing and 200 guests for a seated dinner. My favorite photos are Jen and John’s portraits on the open-air Rooftop Terrace. You can’t beat the view, am I right?
