    Blew me away!

    From the very beginning, we loved working with the event staff and team at the Washington Duke. The venue is simply gorgeous and was the perfect size for our wedding. Bethany was so helpful and very responsive every time I had a question. Her patience with us was so great! The dinner reception the night of the wedding was just perfect and we got so many compliments on the food choices we had made. The staff were all great to work with and we had such a wonderful experience right from the very beginning all the way through. Thank you!

    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.

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.
