The Washington Duke Inn hosted our wedding reception last month. We worked with Bethany Butti to plan our wedding. She went above and beyond to make sure that us and our guests had a great evening. We were extremely impressed with the space and the entire Inn staff. The service from The Fairview Dining Room, Bull Durham Bar, and catering staff was top notch throughout the whole weekend. The entire Inn was beautiful and the Washington Duke Inn made the day run smoothly for us. We could not imagine hosting our out-of-town guests at a different venue.

PERFECTION!!! Where do I begin to explain how utterly perfect and amazing the staff and the venue was for our wedding? Angie Wright, our event planner, guided us through all the selections and captured very minute detail - nothing was missed and EVERYTHING was TOP-NOTCH! The venue was held in the private Rotunda room which was breathtaking. The food selection was superb.
The room we booked for our overnight stay was one of the best I've ever stayed in; I only wished we have more time to take advantage of all the place had to offer.
From the time we pulled up to the time we check out, we encountered only the highest caliber of professionalism, courtesy, and friendly dispositions. Even at 3 AM after I woke in a panic when I realized I had left my handwritten wedding vows on the table at the reception, they quickly sent someone to investigate and retrieve them if they were still there. I thought for sure they had been swept up in the trash and were gone forever. The next morning when we checked out, I was handed a small white envelope and tucked neatly inside were my vows! I nearly started to cry.
It's easy to understand why they continuously rate so high in customer satisfaction. And even though we live only 30 minutes away, my husband and I plan to go back often and even spend a night or two in this enchanting place that welcomes you in like family.

For almost 20 years I have been doing weddings at The Washington-Duke Inn. It has grown through the years adding the Presidential Terrace and the huge ballroom adjoining it. I have seen the space tented, untented, lavished with beautiful florals, filled with 350 guests or intimate renewal of vows ceremony with only the couple, the photographer and me. You simply cannot go wrong having your wedding at the stately Washington-Duke Inn and working with their staff who will fulfill your dream!
We have literally done hundreds of events at the Washington Duke Inn between weddings and private events. We always look forward to a great event and the staff there is amazing!
Beautiful, historical elegance for weddings of all sizes, whether inside or out. Lots of beautiful spots for fantastic portraits. Add a staff that is professional and efficiant and you cannot go wrong with this wonderful venue. A favorite of all wedding professionals in our area. Highly recommended.
