The DAR was our dream wedding venue, and Susan (and the rest of the team) was wonderful to work with. From the initial tour to view the space, to the day-of execution, the team at the DAR really knows how to do a wedding and we felt 100% confident putting our big day in their hands. The Portico and the O'Byrne Gallery had a real wow-factor for our guests. Even though we didn't need to use the rain backup plan, the additional spaces that would have been available in case of bad weather were just as lovely as the outdoor spaces. We'd recommend the DAR to any future couples who are looking for a beautiful venue with a great team behind it.Sent on 09/24/2018

Love, love, love. This space is just beautiful and so multi-purpose. If you haven't toured the site in person, DO! Their website photos don't do it justice, the location is gorgeous in person and right in the heart of DC. The DAR has several spaces that rent by the hour so you can mix and match your spaces to fit your event. The portico is a fab covered space for an outdoor dance floor (even into the late fall!). Plus you can dance under the towering Washington Monument (Doesn't get much more DC than that.). The event staff at the DAR are very responsive and are delighted to have you. We loved having our wedding here and the ability to come back and visit the historical site whenever we want for years to come. (We even had DC food trucks pull up right outside which made for great catering.)Sent on 07/03/2018

Beautiful venue for our wedding. Elegance meets class, meets beautiful memories!!! Mrs Blankenship was easy to work with and made it easy for us to plan our DIY wedding. Our guests were amazed at the beauty and enchantment of the building and we had tons of room for getting ready. We used the portico and obynre for our reception and dancing and the fornt pation for our ceremony. Awesome venue!!! Definitely recommended!!!Sent on 09/20/2016
