Why We Like This Place

  • This four-story Georgian mansion has a grand tradition of weddings. Built in 1825, the home sits in heart of Federal Washington (also known as the "President's Neighborhood"). Ever since President and Mrs. Lincoln attended the vows of Miss Sally Carroll and Captain Charles Griffin, it's been a favorite spot for couples starting their lives together.
  • You have a choice of several reception options, including an impressive dining room and a plush library, all decorated with splendid period art and furnishings. A half-acre garden with a built-in pergola can be used for ceremonies or cocktails, with leafy magnolias providing plenty of shade.
  • An in-house events team offers full catering capabilities, floral design, and more. Their broad range of packages cover everything from "Simple Ceremony" to "Elite Affair", but can also be customized for a just-right fit.
