What I Love about This DC Rooftop Wedding Venue

HighPoint at 1333 New Hampshire is a new rooftop experience in the heart of Washington, DC that is perfect for weddings and receptions during any time of day. You just can’t beat the views! Sunset is so epic here, and the setting was gorgeous for this couple’s wedding even in the rainy fog.

The first thing I noticed was how easy HighPoint was to navigate and how seamlessly the spaces tied together. Whenever you do venue visits, keep in mind the transitions between wedding timeline events. So much time is lost when you’re moving around a large wedding venue or switching between ceremony and reception sites. HighPoint keeps it super simple and accessible!

Carla and Al’s ceremony was held on the side of the building that holds a perfect view of the Washington Monument. Guests sit inside and the area opens up to the terrace or you can have the ceremony on the terrace itself. I recommend the second option if you have a smaller group because you’re able to see better views in your photos!

DC Rooftop Wedding Venue Details to Keep in Mind:

  1. The venue states that the space accommodates a seated dinner for up to 175 or a standing reception of up to 250. This wedding actually maxed out the space at 120 guests and at times it felt crowded. I would recommend closer to 100 guests or less because of the way the rooms are split.
  2. Not an all-inclusive venue.
  3. You’ll want to get ready somewhere close by! HighPoint has a holding area but not really a getting-ready space.

Photographer’s Insider View on a Washington, DC Venue

Being my first wedding at this new DC rooftop wedding venue, I came in with fresh eyes and excitement! We ended up with a rainy day, but because of the layout of the venue with the overhanging terrace, everyone could enjoy the rooftop views of Washington, DC without getting wet!

It was super easy for us to pop out (like 2 steps) for their portraits in between the rain. There’s nothing like discovering all of the secret spots and features that a wedding site holds. I can’t wait to return during different seasons and times of day when the space will look completely different!

I found that the entire venue is wonderful for couples who want an intimate, classy, elegant, and modern vibe. Carla and Al chose this Washington, DC rooftop wedding venue for the view, the energy, and a neutral palette that could easily incorporate their colors. They chose a black and white minimalist style, with green highlights pointing to their love for plants, and gold as the accent color adding elegance to the setting.

Washington DC Venue Magic that Includes Personal Details

These two included their own personalized touches starting with hiring a wonderful Spanish interpreter for the ceremony and speeches so that all the guests could understand. One special DIY element was that Carla’s mom made the cake! My favorite part of this beautiful day was the PARTY! It was so fun!

The newlyweds wore two large Mr. and Mrs. sparkling black and white top hats which actually looked so gorgeous beside Carla’s reception dress. Other fun hats, headbands, and glow sticks were passed around to the guests that got the party going!

The couple wanted their day to display the joining of two families, big smiles, laughter, and how much these two are madly in love! HighPoint provided the perfect daytime, night time, indoor, and outdoor rooftop wedding venue for a day of simple elegance and tons of fun!
