The Jefferson Hotel Wedding

The Jefferson hotel is an absolutely exquisite location for a wedding. The minute I arrived I was blown away by the beautiful architecture, statues, and odes to one of America's great presidents. Everywhere I looked there were opportunities for creating unique and creative images that showcased the couple and the gorgeous scene that they chose to be married in. I find the history surrounding the hotel very interesting as well. Here is an excerpt from their website.

"In 1923, the nation had a new president in Calvin Coolidge, and Washington, DC welcomed a new luxury residential building: The Jefferson Apartment, a Beaux Arts design by Jules Henri de Sibour that was the address of choice for savvy Washingtonians. 1955 saw the apartment’s conversion into a historic Washington, DC hotel, and The Jefferson was born.

The combined creative forces of some of the world’s finest architectural, design and construction firms brought Washington, DC’s venerable and beloved hotel into the 21st Century with a makeover that is both distinctly European and Washingtonian in style and features an abundance of rich, historical influences of the hotel’s namesake, Thomas Jefferson. The top-to-bottom, two-year hotel renovation infused modern-day elegance and convenience into the stately and magnificent Beaux Arts framework."
