WeddingWire Expands Headquarters In Montgomery County, Maryland

WeddingWire Inc., the leading global online marketplace for the wedding and event industry, plans to expand its corporate headquarters in Montgomery County, Maryland.

Currently located in Chevy Chase, WeddingWire is confirmed to lease a total of 68,000 square-feet of space in the county to accommodate its continued growth. As part of the expansion, the company plans to add 200 new jobs to its existing workforce of more than 350 local employees.

“On behalf of the entire WeddingWire Team, I share our excitement and commitment to WeddingWire’s continued growth in Montgomery County, Maryland,” said Timothy Chi, CEO/Co-Founder, WeddingWire. “WeddingWire was founded nearly 10 years ago in my living room in Chevy Chase and the State of Maryland has been a wonderful place to grow our business. With access to valuable resources and incredible talent, we look forward to our extended residency here in Montgomery County.”

To support the expansion, the Maryland Department of Commerce has approved a $1 million conditional loan through the Maryland Economic Development Assistance Authority and Fund (MEDAAF). Additionally, Montgomery County has approved a $500,000 conditional grant through its Economic Development Fund. The company is also eligible for a number of state and local tax credits.

“WeddingWire has consistently ranked among the fastest-growing technology companies in the country and we are proud to support their expansion here in Maryland,” said Governor Larry Hogan, who visited the company and met with employees in April. “Our administration is committed to making sure Maryland is truly open for business and partnering with innovative companies like WeddingWire demonstrates our state is a place where all businesses can grow and thrive.”

“WeddingWire is a home-grown Maryland company that is a leader in serving the $200 billion global wedding and events industry,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. “Working with cutting-edge companies like WeddingWire to ensure their growth and success in Maryland is one of our most important priorities.”
