About The Mead Center for American Theater

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.” Afterwards, the magnificent views of the waterfront while dining in the Molly Smith Study or Grand Lobby set a dramatic tone for the most important event of your lives. You can see more of our happy couples on our weddings pinterest board.

    We loved our wedding at the Mead Center! We rented the Molly Smith Study for the ceremony and reception and had the cocktail hour up on the outdoor terrace.

    The Molly Smith Study looked great for the ceremony and fit our group of 100 people well. It also was amazing at night with the large glass windows for the reception.

    Betsy O'Keefe was our POC at the Mead Center and was super responsive and helpful with all of our questions. Would highly recommend to others.

    We had a FANTASTIC experience working with the events team at Arena stage and holding our reception at the Molly Smith Study. What a stunning space! The Study doesn't even require any decoration, just some uplighting that the DJ arranged for.The staff is laid back, kept track of every detail, always made sure that we felt comfortable with the decisions being made, and made very knowledgeable vendor recommendations. If you are willing to be a little flexible around their theater schedule, there is no better space in DC.
