Delightful details – flowers, lighting, menu, photography, music – give personality to your special day. Let us guide you through every step of the planning process to ensure a flawless event that will take you seamlessly into your blissful honeymoon.
- Your Dream Team
Our on-site wedding experts will work with you or your wedding consultant to reserve dates, coordinate food and beverage details, and plan all the events at the Hotel while connecting you with other reputable vendors in the area. Together with our seasoned Concierge, our Wedding Specialists have ensured wedding crises – from ripped dresses to lost boarding passes – are averted and every detail is exactly as you wish for your big day.
Take advantage of our trusted relationships with the city's finest floral and event designers. Our preferred designers specialize in creative, contemporary arrangements and can tailor the blooms, design and accessories to fill any of our indoor or outdoor venues.
- Events and Inspiration
The Hotel's indoor spaces express chic, cosmopolitan style and classical grandeur with equal ease. Intimate, sky-lit spaces and grand, sun-filled rooms bring joy to any event, while graceful private terraces offer one-of-a-kind views of the C&O Canal and sprawling lawn.
Gather friends and family to celebrate the bride with a brunch, luncheon or afternoon tea. In Dumbarton Conservatory, a wall of windows and a pyramidal skylight create a bright and joyful atmosphere while highlighting the room's unique touches – rich fabrics, custom furnishings, a Murano chandelier and a graceful inlaid mahogany tray ceiling. The Douglass Room offers simple elegance, with silk wall coverings and glass doors that open to an inviting private patio with a fountain and seasonal flowers.
Our Spa offers a relaxing retreat for the wedding couple and the wedding party as they prepare for the big day. Frosted glass, cool marble and blonde wood create a soothing atmosphere enhanced by calming candlelight. Eight treatment rooms provide space for the bride to gather with her friends for pre-wedding treatments, while a spa suite with bath offers an indulgent setting for the ultimate pampering experience. Step into our on-site salon, George, for manicures, pedicures, and hair and makeup services. Your wedding professional can arrange appointments at one of the many salons and spas in Georgetown for any additional beauty treatments you desire.
Georgetown's C&O Canal provides a lovely backdrop for wedding portraits. The Hotel property features gardens, flowers and grand staircases that enhance any photograph.
Here at Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, we are committed to ecological responsibility. Our recycling and composting programs are integral parts of our regular operations and help us reduce waste. Your wedding professional can identify specific ways you can reduce the carbon footprint of your celebration, such as creating a sustainable foods menu, and will help you implement environmentally sound measures throughout the entire planning process.
A variety of creative lighting options are available. Custom lighting effects add a personal note to the occasion by projecting your initials or chosen pattern on the dance floor. Pin spotlights enhance spectacular flower arrangements, and room lighting can be adjusted for a dramatic or romantic effect.
