A fine art Wedding & Portrait Photographer
A 2941 Restaurant Weddings has a modern style like no other venue in the area. Just a short drive outside of Washington DC, this Falls Church venue is unforgettable. This is one of my all time favorite venues in the area, and for good reason! The first thing you will notice when you arrive at the venue is that surrounding the property are lush green plants and trees. Of course, to keep the serene feeling the restaurant keeps the landscaping maintained year-round. The sound of running water from the waterfall and koi pond gives the entrance to this venue an at-once luxurious feeling. Obviously, the inside is just as grand! Inside you will see high ceilings and chandeliers adorning the ceiling.
As I have noted, this venue is located in Falls Church just 20 minutes outside of Alexandria, Virginia and DC. This makes it extremely convenient for any family who might be flying in for your wedding. Not only is the location of this venue perfect, it also has a multitude of amenities and rooms in which you can host your wedding!
Firstly is the Terrace. This location is my personal favorite, and when you see it in person you will know why! This space first caught my eye because of the warm, sandy stone tiling found throughout. As a DC wedding photographer, I can assure that this immediately levels up your wedding photos. This space is simple, yet extremely chic. Perfect for a modern and elegant ceremony.
Secondly is the Tasting Room. This room is on the smaller side, so it fits a small wedding of up to 24 guests. Thirdly is the Main Dining Room. This space is for the couples wanting a big wedding! The space can hold 200 people comfortably. Of course, all of the rooms have the modern style that the 2941 Restaurant is known for, as well as the high ceilings and windows!
Lastly is the Waterfall and Koi Room. I have personally shot a wedding in this room and it is divine! The same large windows are found in this area, along with a bar, and best yet- a waterfall view!
Staffed with critically acclaimed Chef, Bertrand Chemel, the French American cuisine you will receive at a 2941 Restaurant Wedding is an experience in itself. You’ll have endless options for your wedding reception. There is a generous section of salads, appetizers, and entrees to choose from. The staff at the 2941 Restaurant will make sure that your first dinner as a married couple will be the best you will ever have.

No matter the room you choose, each dining area is already set up with a bar ready.
A bridal holding room is available for 30 minutes before the ceremony. This will help make your trip from a hotel to the ceremony seamless and stress-free. Also, each wedding hosted here will look completely different and unique due to the variety of dining rooms available. The outdoor ceremony spot can accommodate up to 200 people, allowing for flexibility in your guest list. The indoor ceremony space can accommodate up to 160 people in case of inclement weather.
