An alternative wedding adventure

We scout the best spots in the city for our weddings — we love museums, street art, the Metro, and all kinds of hidden gems in DC. You won’t find us at the monuments, but you might just catch us at the coolest spots in town.

How it Works

A legal wedding ceremony

One half of Pop Wed Co is our trusty bow-tie-wearing wedding officiant, Steven! He takes care of all the marriage paperwork, so all you guys have to do is grab some awesome outfits and get married!

Tell Me More!

…and photography of the whole thing!

The other half of Pop Wed is Maggie Winters, the DC photographer for awesome people. Maggie will photograph your wedding ceremony and then take you on a portrait session adventure!
