Key Details

  • Guests will stand on the steps for the ceremony, so please wear comfortable shoes. The ceremony itself will be about 20-25 minutes.
  • Parking is limited, so we suggest that you take public transportation/taxi/uber/Lyft to the ceremony. If you choose to drive, you may want to park near the reception venue, then Uber or taxi over to the Steps. Plan extra time if you will be driving since it may take a while to find a parking spot.
  • Public restrooms aren’t available at the Steps but there are facilities open at the Courtyard Marriott or the Washington Hilton, both on Connecticut Avenue (about a 10 minute walk).
  • Reception will have brunch and lunch options. We don’t expect food to be served until 12:30, so we suggest you eat breakfast before heading to the Steps.
  • Immediately following the ceremony, guests will board trolley cars for an abbreviated city tour en route to the reception. We again suggest taxis/uber/etc. to return to your hotel or to your home after the reception.
  • If you choose to drive over to the reception, make sure to go Cork Market & Tasting Room, not Cork Restaurant, which is on the next block down. The door to the Tasting Room is unmarked and is located between McEnearney Associates and the main Cork Market entrance. If you go as far up the block as  the Home Rule store, you’ve gone too far.
  • In case of rain or some freakish snowstorm, the ceremony will be held at the Cork Market & Tasting Room. Sadly, no trolley cars in that scenario.
