We always love when our clients decide on a venue that is quintessential DC and The National Museum of Women in the Arts, is one of them. As we head back there this weekend for our last wedding of the Summer we thought it would be fun to look back at one of our favorite weddings held there.
Erin and Dan first fell in love with the National Museum of Women in the Arts shortly after they started dating, so when Erin and Dan made a shortlist of wedding venues, it naturally made it’s way to the top. “The museum is both simultaneously grand and intimate,” the bride said. “The tall ceilings and gold accents throughout the space add a touch of glam while not being ostentatious.” They locked the space in for February 6, 2016 — a date that coincided with the Lunar New Year, so the couple happily included elements related to the Chinese New Year and the groom’s cultural heritage.
With the grand staircase at the NMWA in mind, Erin looked for a ball gown, and instantly lit up when she tried on this Hayley Paige strapless wedding dress, complete with a silk radzmir crossover bodice, a full tulle skirt with horsehair flounces, and a chapel-length train, it was exactly what she had wanted and would be perfect for when she walked down the staircase with her father.
