Amazing Wedding Venue!

DAR is an amazing venue that cannot be beat when it comes to an iconic DC wedding venue! The venue offers a number of different backdrops throughout the day. Even if it rain (as it did for our day), the backup locations are great! We were able to squeeze the ceremony out on the portico and our first dance on the rotunda during a rain window. We held dinner in the O’Byrne Gallery, which was beautiful with the natural light coming in the windows. Our guests loved when the reception started with dancing in the Foyer and socializing in the library. The duel environment offered something for everyone with the spaces still feeling connected!

Amanda and her team are very responsive and happy to answer questions as they arise throughout the process!

Naturally beautiful venue

The most naturally beautiful venue - multiple wedding guests said the same thing! Communication was easy, and they very kindly and generously compensated for the unforeseen construction that affected my wedding day. Security on the day of was TIGHT (which was much appreciated considering the downtown DC location) and all the staff and personnel we encountered throughout our time planning were kind and professional.

In love with this venue

We used the DAR venue for our 2023 September wedding and it was everything we could have wanted and more. The venue itself is breathtaking and you honestly hardly even need to add your own touch to it because it's gorgeous as is (which could help you save on some decor/florals). So many of our guests throughout our wedding were complimenting the venue and we still hear about it sometimes to this day!

We also had such a great experience working with Amanda and her team. Not only were they accommodating and flexible, but they had excellent communication throughout. Highly recommend using DAR as your wedding venue because it's an experience you or your guests will not forget!
