About Friends Meeting of Washington

Established in 1930 as a Quaker meeting house, Friends Meeting of Washington is a wedding venue situated in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC. In keeping with Quaker values, couples of every background, creed, and orientation are welcome to celebrate their precious day at this historic location. The vintage buildings have been refurbished to reflect modern needs while retaining their quintessential character and essence. This, coupled with tranquil greenery and manicured gardens, creates an idyllic backdrop for a romantic and soulful celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

To-be-weds can host countless aspects of their special journey at this splendid destination, from engagement parties and rehearsal dinners to the all-important wedding day. This versatile place boasts numerous locations for indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions. The Meeting Room can accommodate up to 300 guests for ceremonies, which can be followed by a cocktail hour in the scenic East Gardens. Receptions in the Assembly Room hold approximately 96 patrons, and when the weather permits the adjoining landscaped garden fits an added 100 people. For more intimate affairs of about 40 loved ones, the Quaker House Living Room provides the ideal backdrop. Get-ready rooms can be utilized by wedding parties for the duration of the day. Wheelchair accessibility is possible in most parts of this venue. Street parking is available close by and complimentary WIFI is provided.

Services Offered

A dedicated team at Friends Meeting of Washington endeavors to make each couple's day pleasant and memorable. They assist to-be-weds from start to finish and provide items from tables and chairs to cutting-edge audiovisual equipment.

    Couldn't be happier with FMW Wedding!

    My wife Rachel and I got married at Friends Meeting of Washington in October 2019. We could not have been happier with how it all worked out! Brian was fantastic to work with. He was flexible and responsive, and committed to making sure that the evening was just as we wanted it.
    We would absolutely recommend them without hesitation, and we're so glad we had our wedding there.

    Beautiful relaxing venue

    This beautiful venue in the heart of Dupont Circle is a gem of a location surrounded by gorgeous sustainable gardens, indoor spaces that can be customized based on your event needs, and a really friendly staff to work with. I had a great time working with Brian right before the pandemic lock down. We had a great time with our friends and family here.

    The Friends Meeting of Washington is an amazing green space in Dupont Circle. As a photographer, I love the beautiful simplicity of the worship room for ceremonies. The outside terrace area is a nice green space for cocktail parties or small outdoor ceremonies. The back garden and Assembly Room are undergoing a renovation from Sept 2018-May 2019. It's going to be an awesome location for weddings and small group meetings when finished.
