Catering

Catering and alcohol service must be provided by one of our wonderful approved caterers. We've worked with all of them for years, and they are much of the reason why we have some of the best reviewed venues in the region.

Event Planner

We require that you work with an event planner with a profile on either The Knot or Wedding Wire. They'll coordinate your layout, decor, and run of show. We'll make sure the spaces are open and ready for it!

Furniture

We don't provide any furniture or decor. We'll work with your event planner to coordinate your furniture and decor delivery to be provided by any of our approved furniture and decor companies.

Location

National Union Building's location is one of its most unique features. Situated just across from Ford鈥檚 Theatre, this incredible venue overlooks the alley that John Wilkes Booth used to escape many years ago. When you host your wedding celebration at National Union Building, you and your guests will be captivated by the rich history and vintage charm found right in the middle of the city.

Parking

Being in Downtown DC -- we're in the same situation for parking as Ford's Theater, Capital One Arena, and the Museums -- everything is in a parking garage! We can provide valet referrals to your wedding planner.

National Union Building was the perfect venue for our 100-guest wedding in May 2018. The space was beautiful and fit the "personality" of our event really well. The location is convenient, and our guests had a great time! We'd recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue in DC! We got so many compliments on the space and how well it worked for the event. One of our engaged guests wants to book the space for their wedding after seeing how awesome it was. It really was the perfect space - a great aesthetic, a great value, and an excellent overall experience.

Beautiful venue in the heart of DC

We fell in love with the National Union Building the first time we visited. It鈥檚 architecture and character made for a perfect venue. The staff was incredibly accommodating and allowed the caterers to set up their assembly tables in the other room on our floor free of charge. They also accomodated our requests for additional tables and stools and made sure everything ran smoothly with the vendors arriving and taking down.
