A Romantic & Elegant Meridian House Wedding in Washington DC

Dec 8, 2023

As a Washington DC wedding photographer, there are moments that etch themselves into memory, woven with emotions and breathtaking beauty. Sabaa and Tarek’s wedding day was nothing short of that. Their romantic and enchanting Meridian House wedding in Washington DC was a canvas painted with love, elegance, and vibrant colors—a tapestry I had the honor of capturing through my lens.

The Venue: Meridian House – Washington DC

The Meridian House stood as a testament to timeless charm, offering a myriad of picturesque locations for moments frozen in time. The regal architecture of Meridian House, adorned with verdant gardens and magnificent bookshelves, set the stage for a celebration brimming with romance.

Meridian House is a historical home situated on three acres of beautifully manicured gardens. It is located just one mile north of the heart of DC at 1630 Crescent Pl NW, Washington DC 20009. This residential jewel was expertly built in 1921 and designed by John Russell Pope, who also designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Archives.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Meridian House has effortlessly stood the test of time. It is considered to be the finest example of French urban architecture in the United States. Surrounded by walls that shelter the formal garden, best known for the grove over more than 40 European linden trees that cascade the large pebbled courtyard.

Boasting a two-story foyer, the grand entrance into your Meridian House wedding will leave your guests speechless and eager for more. The home is adorned with some of the finest artwork in the nation, French brass hardware, and ornate Waterford crystal torches. The seemingly never-ending French doors along the entire south side of the home open out to the Linden Grove and pebbled courtyard that will take your breath away.
