The top-notch venues in and around Wash­ing­ton pro­vide your wed­ding with the per­fect back­drop.

While sum­mer­time has long been known as wed­ding sea­son, col­or­ful fo­liage and rus­tic vibes make au­tumn just as pop­u­lar. Pin­ter­est re­ports that fall wed­ding searches are up by 280 per­cent!

Tiffany Rioux, di­rec­tor of sales and mar­ket­ing for Rose­wood Wash­ing­ton, DC (1050 31st St. NW, 202-617-2400; rose­wood­ho­tels.com), agrees. “I think peo­ple are less at­tracted to the sum­mer heat,” she says. “I see fall leaves chang­ing, the weather im­prov­ing and be­com­ing more com­fort­able.”

Yet the na­tion’s cap­i­tal of­fers more than just fa­vor­able tem­per­a­tures this time of year: Our city’s his­toric set­ting plays a huge role. Says Rioux, “When you draw ev­ery­thing in to­gether, what will pro­vide last­ing mem­o­ries are pho­tos, and to that point I think DC is unique.”

The gar­dens at Car­lyle House, a his­toric Ge­or­gian man­sion in Old Town Alexan­dria once owned by the city’s founder, pro­vide an idyl­lic back­drop for Su­san and Joseph Blu­men­thal’s nup­tials.
