As a DC wedding venue, the unique ambiance, talented staff, and award-wining food at the Mandarin Oriental easily place it at the top.

Deejaying weddings at the Mandarin is always a great experience because of its talented event and catering team. Plus the hotel has such a sophisticated, chic vibe, it’s hard not to feel as though special things happen there!

Though the Mandarin’s ballroom is amazing on its own, couples often use lighting effects to add to the drama. When setting up our equipment and Bose wireless speakers, we’re careful to coordinate with the lighting or design element team. Our goal is always to ensure excellent sound…and preserve our client’s vision of what their day should look like. To see what we mean, have a look at our set-up shots from a recent wedding at the Mandarin below.

Wedding at Meridian House – Beth & Peter

Beth and Peter were married on a gorgeous Spring day at arguably one of the most romantic, elegant historic venues in all of Washington, DC, the Meridian House.

During their ceremony in Meridian’s famous Linden Grove, it was so peaceful and still that it felt as if we were the only ones in the entire city.

Gracious and refined, Beth and Peter’s wedding harmonized with Meridian House’s history as an Ambassador’s residence. In fact, it was hard to believe the celebration wasn’t taking place in their home. From the Linden Grove ceremony and garden cocktail party to dinner and dancing, this event was magical. You know a crowd is feeling right at home and having a great time when clothes start coming off on the dance floor!

We’re lucky the fabulous husband and wife team at Holland Photo Arts did a fantastic job capturing the day (as usual) so we could share it with you!
