United with Love recently hosted a re-launch event to celebrate new ownership and a new look (coming soon!) at one of DC’s most versatile event spaces downtown and we can’t say it enough: we are in love! The Loft at 600 F is a super chic space that can be transformed for any occasion that you can dream up. We love the brick walls and hardwood floors, comfy lounge furniture, and high ceilings present in this unique space. There are even three floors for you to choose from when you are dreaming up the perfect design plan for your event. Their website contains floor plans (a must have when planning out your spatial strategy!) so you can easily and quickly decide which floors would be best suited to your soiree. The Loft at 600 F is a hidden gem located in Chinatown/Penn Quarter so you will be close to all of the DC action, with easy access to public transit and great restaurants for the perfect after party! This adaptable space can be used for any or all of your special wedding festivities in the DC area.
Wedding: The Loft at 600 F is perfect for those couples who are looking for a very intimate feel on their wedding day. With the general aesthetic of the space and the size of each floor, this venue is very cozy and homey for your smaller wedding. You can utilize one floor for the ceremony and another for the reception or host cocktail hour on a different floor while flipping the ceremony space for a formal reception; the possibilities are endless with this space! This venue is also the perfect spot for a rain plan backup, in case you are nervous that the weather will be acting up day-of.
Rehearsal Dinner: Renting out one floor for a catered rehearsal dinner would be an amazing start to your wedding weekend! We also love the idea of hosting your dinner on one floor post rehearsal and renting out a second floor later in the night for a cocktail party for out of town friends and family. You can include those who have traveled distances to be with you, without having to include them in the more family and bridal party focused rehearsal dinner.
Elopement Celebrations & Vow Renewals: If you don’t want your wedding day to be a huge fuss, or you decided to get married just the two of you in some beautiful exotic location, you can still have an amazing party after the fact! This space is perfect for elopement celebrations or vow renewals.
Engagement Parties: Now that you’re officially engaged, we know you want to show off that rock! An engagement party is the perfect place to do this! Invite your closest friends and family members for a party that is all about you two! Make it a rager and rent out all of the floors with an awesome DJ and constant dancing or have a close intimate dinner party with killer food and heartfelt toasts. Any way you choose to celebrate your engagement here, you can’t go wrong.
Bridal Showers: Grab all of your best gals and rent out a floor or two for a fun filled bridal shower! You can have all of your favorite food’s brought in by a fantastic caterer for a brunch, lunch, or dinner or you can hire other vendors for the day such as hair and makeup artists for makeovers, or a professional mixologist who will help you create (and test!) some fun signature cocktails.
Engagement Photo Sessions: The natural light in this space is absolutely insane. Your photographer will thank you a million times over when they find out that you booked The Loft at 600 F for your engagement photos. Not only will be you be shielded from the elements, but the decor in this space can go from chic, to modern, to rustic all on the same day! Craving outside photos as well? You’re super close to all of the iconic DC photo spots on the National Mall too.
