    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.

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. The Dumbarton House staff work diligently to assure that the day goes by flawlessly and that all needs of the bride and groom are met. As a vendor it was a great experience working with them, would highly recommend!

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
