Description:

Nestled along the waterfront in the historic Southwest neighborhood of Washington, D.C., the Mead Center for American Theater offers a unique blend of breathtaking views, stunning architecture, theatrical history, and world-class hospitality. For unconventional couples, a wedding ceremony or reception at the Mead Center for American Theater is a theatrical event you’ll never forget. The striking, yet intimate Kogod Cradle is a stunning setting in which to say, “I do.” The intimate, oval-shaped theater features wooden basket-weaved walls in lush eggplant colors, making it a truly unique space for your ceremony. After the ceremony, guests can mingle and sip on cocktails at the Rooftop Terrace! As the sun goes down, enjoy the magnificent views of the waterfront while dining in the Molly Smith Study or Grand Lobby. Spacious, contemporary, and enclosed by a towering 56’ glass wall, the Mead center sets a dramatic tone for the most important event of your lives.
