    The AIA was the prefect reception venue for us. We loved that it had a large outdoor space as well as space inside, just in case a rain plan was needed. We ended up not needing one and had cocktail hour and dancing outside and dinner inside. There were 130 guests and it never felt cramped. It was also so helpful having access to their tables and chairs.

    Amy was amazing to work with. We live in NC so couldn't make it to DC too often for wedding planning, but Amy was always willing to meet with our vendors and show them the space in our absence. She also allowed us to drop items off earlier in the week which was a huge help.

    Everything was so beautiful and we would select this venue again in a heartbeat!

    The AIA building in DC was the only venue we toured and we knew right away that it was made for us. The outdoor courtyard in front of the Octagon was amazing for our ceremony. We had initially hoped to have the cocktail hour and dancing outside as well, but we had to move those inside because of rain earlier in the day. Luckily, we were still able to keep the ceremony outside and it was truly magical.

    There's plenty of room indoors to fit at least 13 tables and a dance floor. The massive glass windows provided the most amazing natural light for photographs. And even though we couldn't have the dance floor outside, the windows made the space feel so open.

    Amy, who is the venue coordinator, was a pleasure to work with. She was so responsive and accommodating to all our needs. If you're looking for DC-area venues, please check out the AIA. We couldn't have asked for a better location for us.

    We love working with AIA! Not only is Amy and her team flexible and helpful but they're on top of the whole event! The venue is modern and classic with an element of old world DC just outside in the courtyard! Our couples love the space and we enjoy every moment of working with this incredibly responsive team!
