    Uniquely Washingto

    The National Press Club was a fantastic choice for our wedding. We were aiming for a central location, unique experience, and easy logistics. It nailed all three. From our first interactions with Cara, she was there to answer any questions and provide useful suggestions. The food was amazing (our guests keep talking about crab cakes) and the planning was incredibly easy. It's nice that they have all the catering items in-house already. The whole team was flexible and accommodating, and Cara's extra coordination efforts to make all of our wedding party comfortable and organized was helpful. The venue itself is uniquely Washington with lots of available photo shots (including easy access to Pennsylvania Ave). We highly recommend having a look at the Press Club.

    We chose the National Press Club for our wedding reception and we had the best experience imaginable! Cara Lanza was absolutely wonderful to work with and was extremely responsive during the entire planning process. We knew that the day-of execution was in good hands with Cara and her team. The venue and food were a huge hit with our guests, and we were so pleased with how everything turned out. We are so glad that we chose the National Press Club for our special day!

    Some of the most beautiful weddings we have ever done have been at the National Press club. They are professional, relaxed, wonderful to work with and a beautiful venue. We photographed the wedding of 2 ballroom dancers at the press club and the images we were able to take from the balconies surrounding the room were among the finest dance images we have ever done. It is a unique and wonderful location. Elaine Studley
