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.
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!
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.
National Union Building's location is one of its most unique features. Situated just across from Ford’s 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.
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.
