GLWE Behind the Scenes {This Weekend's Site Visits}

Happy Tuesday! I can’t believe how quickly the holiday weekend went by! I was excited to start the weekend as I had time to spend with my daughter, clients, family and friends. On Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting one of our October couples for the first time. The three of us toured DC, Virginia and Maryland looking for the perfect location for their upcoming wedding. Our first stop was  Arts Club of Washington. I love the history of the Arts Club and its location near many DC landmarks and restaurants. The Arts Club is a unique venue as they have a garden that will be perfect for an outdoor ceremony.

After visiting the Arts Club, I headed over to my favorite cupcakery, Sprinkles DC. I can’t go into the city without attempting to make my way over there!

After a cupcake and coffee break, we headed to 2941 Restaurant and met with Michelle who showed us around. I loved the modern art that is displayed throughout the restaurant and the gorgeous waterfalls that are easily viewed through the glass windows.

After meeting with Michelle, we headed across the bridge to Maryland to visit Oxon Hill Manor. A few years back my team and I worked at Oxon Hill Manor for a brunch reception. I love the view from Oxon Hill Manor and the room options. The various rooms allow for versatility when laying out the ceremony and reception details and event floorplan.

We headed back into DC to visit with Nora at Sewall-Belmont House & Museum. It was exciting to be in the vicinity as the city was preparing for yesterday’s inauguration. Sewall-Belmont  is tucked away on Capitol Hill and its location can’t be matched.

I love the door at Sewall-Belmont! A perfect place for bridal portraits.

After visiting with four different venues, I am sure our couple will find the perfect location for their upcoming wedding. I am excited to see which location our couple selects for their big day!
