Meet Patterson Mansion: the newest Washington DC wedding venue!

This landmark venue is located just steps away from the iconic Dupont Circle in the heart of the city. The edgy dark walls and tongue-in-cheek decor make this space perfect for a fashion forward couple looking to put their signature on a classic DC look!

Keep scrolling to see this space in action during a styled elopement featuring some killer DC vendors:

Venue: Patterson Mansion | Hair and Make Up: Carla Pressley | Models: Condrea Zhuang + Partner

Guests can float between four different spaces within the venue. The Social Kitchen served as our getting ready space. The huge windows let in a peak of natural light while the marble countertops gave Carla plenty of room for hair and make up.



Patterson Mansion’s Foyer serves as a stylish ceremony backdrop, with a view of Dupont Circle’s fountain framed through architectural columns. As guests wait for family photos to wrap up, they can head to the library for an intimate cocktail hour. The black walls exude the same sex appeal as a black silk dress, and they definitely inspired me to play with harsh light and more editorial posing during this session!

Hold the phone: were those moody, editorial photos really shot by me?! While not my typical bright and colorful style, I can’t get enough of the power that this session exudes.

The landmark confidence within Patterson Mansion historic walls must have been radiating out as Condrea and her partner posed in the library. All I can say is 🥵 If you’re on the hunt for an alternative wedding venue that could be transformed into something steamy and stylish – look no further!

As an up-and-coming Washington DC wedding venue, the ballroom at Patterson Mansion is perfect for hosting up to sixty guests for an impressive dinner party style event. Look no further for the venue where edgy meets intimate!

As a boutique wedding photographer, I only accept a limited number of weddings, engagement and boudoir sessions per year. This allows me to give each client white-glove service, but it also means that my availability is very limited! Send me a message soon so that we can set up a time to talk and lock in your date.
