When I started my own alternative DC venue search, the only thing I knew was that I didn’t want a hotel reception hall. I wanted something unique or different, an art gallery or historical house. One day my search brought me to Long View Gallery. The gallery is one part art gallery, one part event venue. It is the epitome of modern and alternative Washington, DC wedding venue.
The gallery is new – it opened its doors in 2006 – and it’s really just a blank canvas for creative and modern brides in the metro area looking for a bright, open space that you could truly mold into your own vision for your wedding day.
I did visit the gallery for a tour at the beginning of 2010 during my venue search, so I can attest to how seriously gorgeous and cool the venue is and how awesome the staff (especially Events Director, Suzi Molak) is. The space is “5,000 square feet of superior interior with two flexible halls, impeccable lighting and all the smart tech to raise your next event to an art form. For corporate occasions, life celebrations and all sorts of hip happenings” (Long View Gallery Event Space).
