Washington, DC is the perfect place to elope – our city is full of history, nature, beautiful architecture, and tons of charm. After performing ceremonies for well over 1,000 satisfied customers, we finally decided to put together a list of the best places to elope in DC!
While you can technically get legally married anywhere within the city limits of the District of Columbia, many of our couples ask us for recommendations for their elopement ceremony location. There are so many beautiful, unique elopement locations in DC, it was truly difficult to decide which ones to put on our list. Ultimately, we decided to rate our customers’ most popular ceremony locations based on the following factors:
- Ease of Access – How easy is the location to get to?
- Beauty – How gorgeous is the location?
- Privacy – How private is the location?
- Rain Plan – If it rains, is there cover?
- Permits & Fees – Is there a cost, and how much is it?
The locations below are available to all of our customers, regardless of which of our DC Elopement Packages you choose. Some of our premium Elopement Experiences™ Packages also include access to our Premium Ceremony Locations, which are only available for customers booking those packages.
