Outdoor Weddings Show Off Their Elegant Side at the Courtyard Chevy Chase

Hotel Expands and Refines Its Terrace Venue for Spectacular Chevy Chase Events

CHEVY CHASE, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2015) - When it comes to weddings, the great outdoors are usually made greater when air-conditioning and amenities are involved. And couples can see for themselves why at the Courtyard Chevy Chase. Having recently unveiled its new event tent, this hotel near Bethesda, Maryland can now host weddings for more people, in more comfort and with more panache than ever before.

The hotel purchased its tent last year to enhance its second-story terrace. Not only did the tent expand the hotel's overall event square footage from 3,072 to more than 5,000, but the tent's graceful proportions, airy interior and verdant surroundings also created one of the freshest, most sophisticated wedding venues in Chevy Chase.

During a recent "tent-reveal party," guests were invited to discover the ways weddings, corporate receptions or social events might unfold beneath the tent's sweeping canopy. Cathedral-windowed sides let in plenty of natural light as well as views of the trees and flowers situated around the terrace. Heating and air-conditioning compensate for inclement temperatures outside so that groups can celebrate alfresco any time of year. And lighting packages include two chandelier choices to enhance an event's potential for customization.

The new event tent is just the latest feature to make this hotel near Bethesda an ideal wedding venue. Four dedicated spaces - including a 2,160-square-foot ballroom -- host flawless receptions, rehearsal dinners and brunches, while the catering staff encourages couples to customize their wedding menus for a perfect event.

This Friendship Heights hotel is equally ideal for wedding guests. The property's close proximity to the Metro puts D.C. and its neighborhoods well within reach for easy sightseeing. And the hotel's LEED Gold certification (it runs on 100% renewable energy) lets guests feel good about making a weekend out of any event as they enjoy 226 deluxe guest rooms, an on-site restaurant and a fitness center and pool.

From its tented terrace, to its eco-friendly accommodations, the Courtyard Chevy Chase makes any wedding -- outdoors or otherwise -- an affair to remember.
