Description:

A visit to Dumbarton House offers guests a unique opportunity to view one of the finest examples of Federal period architecture in the U.S., along with its impressive furniture and decorative arts collections. Sequestered just steps from the Rock Creek Park trails and only a few minutes from the Potomac River, Dumbarton House provides a uniquely stunning wedding celebration venue. The elegant brick building welcomes you with wide white columns. You’ll say your vows in a charming courtyard, with green vines climbing the walls and creating a romantic ambiance. Twinkling lights strung above the courtyard transform the space into a lovely cocktail hour, where guests can enjoy the historic house and mingle over appetizers. Your elegant reception begins in the Belle Vue Room. Elegant and modern, the room features blond wood floors, walls painted a neutral Federal period-style yellow with accent panels of gold fabric, and 13-foot white coffered ceilings. The ballroom opens onto a courtyard paved with slate, where a tent can be erected to accommodate additional guests. No matter your wedding vision, Dumbarton House will create the perfect day you’ve always wanted.
