    Rachel & Sean at the Carnegie were very helpful, professional and courteous from the start. The made the whole process of holding our wedding at the venue very smooth, especially on the day. Due to the weather we had to change plans at the last minute and hold our ceremony at the Carnegie (in addition to our reception), and they went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. We could not have asked for better service. The venue itself is amazing - great for photos, and we'd highly recommend holding your wedding here.

    Hands Down Carnegie Library is the most incredible venue in the Washington, DC area!!! Not only is it affordable, but is full of amazing architecture & character. The Map Room, beautiful entry ways, & marble stairs. The people at DC Events were such a pleasure to work with & made sure that our Wedding Day was unforgettable & they did just that. I would recommend contacting them to book any parties, weddings, all functions..... Thank you so much for making Our day beautiful & unforgettable!!!!!

    The Carnegie Library is a beautiful venue. The staff working in the building is wonderful. Some of their contract language is vague/confusing, but the place is lovely and it's a great value for the space you receive. I'm glad I chose the Carnegie as our wedding venue. Our guests loved it!
