I attended American University and this church is directly across the street. Metropolitan is absolutely beautiful with a European cathedral type feel. Like any church in the area, there are a number of rules, but since we wanted a more traditional ceremony anyways, I didn't find them to be restrictive and our photographers were able to work within them. Although the fee is expensive for non-members, it did include the organist, so we didn't incur additional expenses with musicians. Plus since the church is so beautiful, we let the architecture speak for itself and didn't spend any money on decorations or flowers for the church. The church administrator is super busy and won't always get back to you immediately. At first, this concerned me when we were trying to secure the church and then get our pre-marital counseling scheduled. But it all worked out.
