    This was our first and our last place to select for our wedding! We went for more of a garden themed, yet wanted to stay within DC since most of our guests were coming from out of town and didn't want to opt for a vineyard that would require shuttles to drive everyone out to Virginia. Suzanne who is the event coordinator was very responsive and detailed, and had also worked with some of our other vendors so we were very lucky with that.

    The Dumbarton house is already a beaut that you don't need too many decorations if a garden-themed wedding is what you're aiming towards. We had our wedding in the fall so the leaves made for great, natural decor. You have the option to use upstairs, downstairs, and inside. The house has a great flow to it. Although the house can accommodate up to 150, I would suggest 120 or less to accommodate for dance floor space.

    My husband and I got married at the Dumbarton House on October 1, 2016, and it was everything we wanted it to be. The coordinator, Suzanne, was so helpful throughout the entire process, answering the numerous questions we had, always in a very timely manner. She was very professional and worked well with all of our other vendors.

    We had 113 guests and a live band, which fit the space very well. We held our ceremony in the North Garden, and it felt secluded and was quiet, definitely did not seem like it was in the middle of Georgetown. The cocktail hour was in the Upper Terrace, and because of the possibility of rain, we tented this area only. The tent was high enough that it didn't feel closed in, and we were happy with the result. The dinner and reception were in the Belle Vue room and the Lower Courtyard. We sat half of the tables outside and the other half in the room, but it really felt like one room. My husband and I would occasionally walk by the Dumbarton House in the months leading up to our wedding, and we were able to see different tent configurations on the property, which helped informed our decisions on the tents.

    This is such a beautiful and historic venue in Washington, DC and we received so many compliments on how classy yet comfortable it felt. The staff was extremely helpful, and we would recommend this to anyone looking for a venue!

    Nestled in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington D.C., the historic Dumbarton House is a stunning venue with excellent indoor and outdoor space as well as high quality of service and responsiveness.

As a vendor it was a great experience working with them, would highly recommend!

  • MyDeejay Wedding DJs

    Dumbarton House is a beautiful, unique, historic venue with several striking spaces for a wedding. There are very few venues in DC that have a great outdoor space for a ceremony or cocktail hour, and they keep the grounds maintained perfectly. Some of our very best weddings have been there, we highly recommend it! ~ Evan Reitmeyer, MyDeejay
