When you hear a reference to the Watergate, your mind probably immediately goes to the 1970s political scandal involving a break-in that uncovered illegal activities by the Nixon administration. The story itself is intriguing enough to tempt guests to stay at the Watergate Hotel. But did you know that it’s also one of the most romantic, well-designed hotels we have ever seen? I love providing wedding photography at The Watergate Hotel Washington DC – here’s just a few reasons on why.
But what about the hotel?
To start, the 5-star luxury hotel boasts winter igloos for intimate dinners; a “Scandal Room” where Watergate occurred, designed by the costume designer of Scandal, Lyn Paolo; a brand-new rooftop bar highly-ranked by Condé Nast Traveler; a Rose Suite for bridal parties; the Argentta Spa with modern indoor pool; and Cherry Blossom Festival packages. We have never experienced anything like it! If you’re looking for an extravagantly romantic wedding, the Watergate Hotel stands out among the rest: “An iconic Washington DC wedding venue for unforgettable vows.”
The hotel offers a variety of customizable wedding packages, and the staff will turn your big day into a remarkable experience. All you have to do is say, “I do!” All packages include open bar service, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, wine service, coffee & tea, and signature cocktails. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more intimate and exceptionally romantic, book the elopement package with a balcony suite! For venues, the spaces are endless: the Moretti Ballroom or the Cecchi Junior Ballroom for large celebrations, the Library and Kingbird for a unique private setting, or the Rooftop overlooking the cherry blossom-lined Potomac River for a light and airy ceremony, complete with a candlelit aisle!
