Venue Alert

Fiance and I have been looking for a place to have our rehearsal dinner. In the midst of my search for a private dining room in the DC area, I came across this absolute jewel. I present to you the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The balcony has views of the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial. This is, hands down, the most beautiful space I have seen in all of my wedding planning days. More information and photos of other rooms are available on the website.

O'Byrne Gallery

I also found some info on a Knot board. The O’Byrne Gallery is listed at $6,800 (wow). It accommodates 140 people, seated.

Constitution Hall Lobby

This beauty holds 1,500 people standing and 700 seated.

Wow! I love the O'Byrne Gallery. I could totally see it being inspiration for me (if I were to start over again) to do an "Fine art" themed wedding. I could see easels lining the sides of the room!!!

I know! I was thinking the Lobby would be amazing for a vintage theme. Tea length 50's inspired dress, birdcage veil, antique Rolls Royce for the getaway. An acappella group to sing old-school tunes during the cocktail hour. Perfection.

It is a fantastic venue, your ceremony if held outside on the patio has the Washington Monument as it's backdrop. The rooftop is phenomenal for pictures. And you are next door to the Corcoran Gallery and across from the White House. Nothing is more DC. Peggy Martz is an absolute gem to work with, if anyone considers it, please tell her we sent you.

this was the only place I seriously considered when we were thinking of doing a wedding in D.C. but the cost was just too much. The rental price pretty much just includes the space...then you have to bring everything else in. In the end it just wasn't worth the price. Pretty to look at, though.
