My dream鉂わ腐

This was an incredible venur. The price is high but the view is completely worth it.

But just few points that I believe are important for you to know for your wedding organization: they are very tight about the time you paid for, if you need extra time to bring stuff or decor you will need to pay and you will just have 3hrs before the guests can get in to do everything馃槄 (so take that in consideration)

Vivian was incredible with me she was the best. I will 100% recommend it.

Wedding Ceremonies by Jim Burch Wedding Ceremonies by Jim Burch Wedding Officiants

Top of the Town is the most beautiful venue in and about the city of Washington, DC. It has - by far - the most wonderful view of the city. Newscasts and movies use this location as their premier spot for a backdrop. There is a great outdoor deck that is just the ultimate lure. I have seen every group of people drawn out there for the magnificent view. The windows, from inside, have the same view, but people just have to get outside - almost magnetically! It can be raining or a snowstorm, and they WILL go outside. On top of that, the service is great and the food is abundant and delicious. Top of the Town is a rare combination that works to make your wedding just right. You will love it!
