Anderson House is one of Washington’s most elegant and exclusive wedding venues—a unique gem in the middle of the city. With a history of more than one hundred years of entertaining, Anderson House has witnessed presidents hosting princes and Supreme Court justices officiating for happy couples. The mansion offers grand, sweeping views as well as more intimate spaces, making it an exquisite setting for a wedding of any size.

Where else in Washington can you find a soaring private ballroom with a flying marble staircase perfect for a dramatic entrance? Where else in Washington is there a walled garden with a reflecting pool, presided over by a three-hundred-year-old Japanese Buddha and graced by two of the city’s oldest magnolia trees? Where else in Washington is there a mansion lovingly decorated with the intertwined initials of the couple who built it? If you’re looking for a romantic setting for a once-in-a-lifetime event, why not choose an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind place?
