Top of the Hay wedding at the Hay-Adams Hotel

This Top of the Hay wedding at the Hay-Adams hotel started with a dramatic first look on the balcony overlooking the White House and the National Monument. 

The Top of the Hay at the Hay Adams Hotel was renovated several years ago to turn it into a beautiful event space. The L shaped room has a stunning view of the Washington DC skyline, especially the area around the White House.

Located on the top floor of the Hay Adams, the Top of the Hay also has a great dance floor space and its own dedicated elevator to carry your guests upstairs to your private reception. 

The space can be utilized for both ceremonies and receptions, with an additional space downstairs on the Hay Adams lobby level for cocktail hour.

There's also a great bar called Off the Record, which is a great place to hang out with bridal party prior to the big event. A&B shared a toast with their wedding attendants before we departed for the ceremony!

A&B had their ceremony at Dahlgren Chapel at Georgetown University, where they first met! The Chapel was decorated beautifully with flowers and filled with friends and family. 

After their ceremony, we took some time for portraits around the campus of Georgetown University before heading back to their Top of the Hay wedding reception.
