Step inside Mollie and Steve’s Smithsonian Museum Wedding and prepare to dance the night away.

Located within the National Mall, the Smithsonian Museum is an ode to American History. But, as a wedding venue the Smithsonian Museum is truly a sight to behold. In total, there are four unique areas located within the museum dedicated to hosting an exquisite wedding. One of those locations includes the rooftop terrace, where Mollie and Steven said I do. It is a wonderful al fresco space best suited for romantic sunset wedding ceremonies. Here, against the backdrop of the Capitol Building and The Washington Monument, with their closest friends and family members in attendance, Mollie and Steve were joined together in marriage. 

All in all, the Smithsonian Museum is known for its awe-inspiring, thought-provoking exhibits. It might surprise you to know that hidden behind its well-curated exhibits Flag Hall and The Wallace H. Coulter Performance Plaza provide space for grand celebrations with up to 300 guests in attendance. When Mollie and Steve began planning their wedding, they set out to find a venue that could combine their interests along with their vision. As a matter of fact, Mollie and Steve share a love of history along with the ability to host an elegant and classic affair. The Smithsonian Museum delivered as a wedding venue that not only met but exceeded their expectations.

A Classic and Elegant Smithsonian Museum Wedding

When I met Mollie and Steve, I could sense, instantly, that they shared a different kind of love. You know those couples who just fit each other perfectly? That is Mollie and Seve. They are each other’s perfect match. But they also share the kind of love story that is filled with fun anecdotes and a refreshing perspective on life. As a Washington DC wedding photographer, I was looking forward to watching Mollie and Steve say I do and smash the glass. 

The arrival of their wedding day brought a light wind to their rooftop wedding ceremony at the Smithsonian Museum. The kind of light wind that was just right for making Mollie’s flower embroidered veil, and dramatic curly tendrils dance in the breeze. Before walking down the aisle to meet Steve, Mollie and her father shared one final private moment together.

As the sun began to set, Mollie and Steve promised to love, honor, and cherish one another for all of their days. Additionally, their ceremony included a special by both the bride and the grooms lovely grandmothers. Sealed with a kiss and the stomping of the glass, Mollie and Steve’s guests erupted emphatically with a celebratory “Mazel Tov” as the newlyweds were pronounced.

Beyond the Star-Spangled Banner Gallery, inside Flag Hall, the remainder of the evening was spent in celebration.

They danced the night away in the Flag Hall, the crown jewel of the American history museum. Guests were able to roam some of the exhibits throughout the night, including viewing the flag that inspired our national anthem. Altogether, the reverberating sound of clinking glasses filled the room as Mollie and Steve’s wedding day became a cherished lifelong memory.
