This offbeat, Washington, DC wedding might take the cake with most original and alternative wedding venue I’ve ever seen: the couple’s apartment complex!
I mean, regardless of the fact that it belongs to an apartment complex, why the hell NOT use a brand new club room and a fabulous open courtyard – a perfect site for both a ceremony and a reception!?
Well, that’s exactly what Charles & Scott did in order to accomplish an insanely special, personalized wedding ceremony full of offbeat and DIY details. A special thanks to Red Shoes Photography & Two Bright Lights for making this wedding feature possible!

A bit about the couple and their offbeat Washington, DC wedding:
Charles and Scott met in Baltimore and moved to DC, where they decided they would have their wedding.
Their [wedding] venue was unusual, as it was their apartment building! Their complex has a great open courtyard and brand new club room, which were the sites for their ceremony and reception. Scott did all the flowers himself, and the food was an endless parade of hors d’ouevres, from sliders to s’mores. The small wedding was mainly family and close friends.
One of the most touching parts of the day was the ceremony. Charles and Scott wrote their own vows, and as they were reading them, I do not think there was a dry eye in the crowd. They also had the bands they had worn all through their engagement engraved with a special saying, which they didn’t show to each other until the ceremony. It was very special, and incredibly moving!
So many details that I love here – the DIYed flowers, the couple writing their own vows, and custom engravings on the wedding rings – all set at such a unique and budget-friendly venue in the DC area. Love it! Enjoy!
