St. Joseph Catholic Church

Washington DC



Located in the town of Herndon, the St. Joseph Catholic Church offers a beautiful Franciscan parish where you can say your “I do’s” or celebrate your union. Rejoice your beautiful marriage in the church’s expansive ballroom, a versatile yet elegant space that can accommodate gigantic parties of up to 750 people, allowing you to celebrate with all of your friends and family members. Boasting sky high ceilings that add a flair of drama to the space and a neutral color palette that can match any theme, this stunning ballroom is perfect for any celebration you have in mind. A pre-function hallway -- a sophisticated space ideal for cocktail hour or smaller celebrations -- can also be rented for use on your wedding day. During the warmer months, take advantage of the glorious outdoor courtyard for an outdoor celebration. Pair any of these lovely event spaces with the church’s on-site catering services to create a truly knockout big day!
