Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Traveler Update on Coronavirus

Love Is In The Air

Engagements and weddings are happening at our airports. Here are a few of their stories.


Spring time ushers in a universal feeling of romance that seems to permeate everywhere you turn.  Celebrations of love and new beginnings abound, as flowers and trees begin to bloom and the temperatures slowly begin to rise.  So, too, does our shared passion to rekindle love.  But, what is it about Reagan National and Dulles International and the romantic sense of travel that makes people of all ages want to mark that special occasion at Reagan National and Dulles International?  Is it the unique nostalgia that one gets when traveling internationally at Dulles ready to embark on a new adventure or honeymoon?  Is it the breath-taking architecture at Reagan National with its domed ceiling and panoramic views of the Potomac River that greet travelers upon arrival?  Or, the intimacy and privacy offered by the magnificent historic Terminal A lobby, where a bride truly make an entrance down a sweeping staircase to celebrate her special day with the people she loves?  No matter how you define it, Dulles and Reagan have a special flare that ignites passions and long-lasting fires of love. 

Dulles has been the backdrop for many new beginnings. From the engagement of Matt and Amber Fleming in Concourse B across from the Aero Train Station stop to casual romantic meetings at Dulles’s Vino Volo restaurant (rated by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the area’s best places to meet), love is definitely in the air in the airport.

Reagan has also been the setting of a grand proposal inside the airport’s historic Terminal A lobby by Tyler Buckner to his true love, Courtney Murray, when she arrived from Austin, Texas.

Another Reagan romantic celebration marked the wedding of Josh Paiva and Jenna Lenskold inside Reagan’s timeless and airy historic Terminal A lobby.  The airport was the perfect setting for the ceremony symbolizing their shared passion for travel.  “The venue was perfect”, Jenna mentioned and continued by saying that the open glass overlook to the airfield, Potomac River and downtown, D.C. enhanced the wedding’s travel theme.

Reagan airport was also the setting for engagement photos for avid travelers Sarah Murphy and Daniel Lavoie.  Their photo shoot displayed the glory of the airport amongst the stunning backdrop of the sweeping architecture and panoramic views of the nation’s capital.  Reagan National was proud to be a part of the celebration.

Whatever life’s journey, we hope you begin the most important journey with us at Reagan National and Dulles International airports.  The historic Terminal A lobby is available for lease and is privately cordoned off from the public, so the occasion is only open to loved ones.  Both Reagan and Dulles also offer conference facilities for lease.  To learn more, visit FlyReagan or FlyDulles.com.

We invite you to tag us with your romantic photos on Twitter and Facebook @Reagan_Airport  and @Dulles_Airport.
