There will be two major events happening very close to the ceremony venue. For those arriving by car, you will want to allot extra time to arrive and park. Also, rain is likely on Saturday morning.
See the travel and accommodations page for more.
Ceremony, Reception, and Cocktail Hour: The ceremony itself is at the Church of the Epiphany downtown at 1:00 P.M. The cocktail hour kicks off at St. Francis Hall at 5 p.m. The reception (including dinner) will immediately follow the cocktail hour from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Attire is “garden party/Sunday best.” There will be a few hours between when the ceremony ends and the cocktail hour / reception begins. The venues are only about 5 miles / 15 minutes apart, so we hope you’ll use the rest of the time to explore our beautiful city, or just take a nap in your hotel room to recharge for the evening’s festivities. Getting Around: If you are unfamiliar with DC, Metro and taking an Uber/Lyft are recommended over driving in the city and/or renting a car. If you are taking Metro or the bus around the city, please check wmata.com for any construction delays. Children Welcome: We’d love to have your children join us! We are working with the wonderful folks at Labyrinth Games to provide a supervised play area during the reception. On your RSVP card (or when you RSVP here on the website), please indicate how many children (ages 3+) will be in your group. If you have teenagers who would rather have their teeth pulled than be in the kid room, let us know. We'll seat them at a table, you just keep them away from the bar. Health and Safety: For the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, full COVID-19 vaccinations will be required for the safety of all our guests. In addition, we will be following local health ordinances to determine where masks will be required by our guests. As of March 1, 2022, D.C. does not mandate indoor mask use. Gifts: The bride and groom respectfully ask for no gifts. (They have a very small condo.) Just bring your smiling faces. If you really want to do something to mark the occasion, we've instead assembled a registry of charities and justice organizations that we'd love to have you donate to in place of a physical gift. Or if you just want to donate to good causes, it's a good list.
