A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
- The Decatur House has a great location—and a great pedigree. It's situated right in Lafayette Square (one of the best addresses in D.C.!), and was built by the famous American architect who also designed St. John's Episcopal Church and the U.S. Capitol.
- Outdoor entertaining is at its finest in the courtyard, which is surrounded by lush, manicured gardens and features a portico supported by limestone columns. Indoor receptions shine in the gracious Carriage House, which boasts a 20-foot, peaked ceiling and updated lighting and audiovisual systems.
- An intimate wedding can be hosted in one of the faithfully restored Historic Entertaining Parlors, appointed with inlaid floors, hand-painted ceilings, and 19th-century chandeliers.
