Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

  • With its grand brick facade and graceful window bays, this striking 1800 mansion is one of the finest examples of Federal-period architecture in D.C. It holds a special place in American history, as well—the home once sheltered First Lady Dolly Madison as she fled the White House ahead of advancing British troops.
  • The Belle Vue room is the perfect indoor/outdoor space, with soft yellow walls and rows of Palladian-style windows that open onto a covered slate terrace. Outside, you'll find not one, but two artfully designed gardens ready to host your ceremony, reception, or cocktail hour.
  • The mansion's impressive main floor remains open as guests arrive, so that they can peruse the well-curated collection of treasures from the era surrounding the birth of the United States.
