My cousin got married last July of 2011 in Washington D.C. at the Dumbarton House. It was a small and private affair. They chose to have a sit down dinner and it was very classy. There was only about seventy people that were at the reception as it was a small venue. The Dumbarton House is a museum. I loved that the rooms that were in the house and had the historical items were open during the entire event. The picture opportunities were great. The house was comfortable and classy and the food was first class. There was a small band that played and there was a small floor for dancing. There was plenty of room to mingle for the guests and everyone had a great time. The staff was helpful and friendly and was able to do anything that we asked them to do. The reception was in the main Belle Vue Room and beautiful outdoor gardens and terraces. You could drink indoors and out and they had a small open bar that was available all evening. It was a perfect setting for anyone that does not want a large wedding and wants a small, classy, private get together. I would highly recommend it. It was a little expensive considering the size of the place but it did offer a lot. The catering was first class and it was great that they cater events there frequently so they really knew what they were doing. This was overall a great time and a great wedding.
