Toolbox Pilates Art Studio Wedding

Whenever I picture a chic, urban wedding set in a distinct building in Washington, DC–I picture Toolbox. Toolbox of Dupont Circle in Washington, DC is a Pilates Art Studio by day, and an event space by night!

The venue fit this couple’s dream for an urban loft feel tucked away behind a line of historic DC row houses. Its urban loft style design with high ceilings, exposed brick, and twinkle lights make Toolbox such a unique Washington, DC wedding venue!

Toolbox is located right between Dupont and Logan Circle in DC, so there are a ton of places to wander around and get great wedding photos!

It was a rainy day, but thankfully it held off long enough to get some great shots! We found a beautiful building in Dupont with an awning just in case it started up again. We also pulled out some cute clear umbrellas for a little bit!

Toolbox is a unique, open urban space that combines that classic DC exposed brick with industrial details and I could not have chosen a couple better matched to this space!

They chose to have a beautiful plated dinner, and the Captain Cookie truck provided dessert! Those cookie sandwiches are LIFE CHANGING.

When I first started chatting with Ketrin and Dennis and asked what they envisioned for their wedding day, they said they were looking for a comfortable, fun, and memorable vibe:

“We want our guests to leave feeling like they went to a great party. All that matters to us is bringing the people that we love together and having a blast. That’s how we intend to spend our life together, always celebrating.”

Following their Washington, DC rooftop elopement and Toolbox DC wedding–I would say they are off to a great start!

Here are some of the details I really loved about their wedding:

1. Candles and greenery on the tables

2. The bride’s amazing textured wildflower bouquet

3. A phone “guest book” where guests could leave congratulatory messages for the couple!
