Anderson House is Washington’s most elegant and exclusive wedding venue. We can’t divulge the names of the couples that have celebrated their unions here, but it reads like a who’s who of Washington life. If you can persuade the president to lend you the White House for your wedding, we suggest you book it. If not, we suggest Anderson House, where presidents have entertained princes and kings.
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 filled with secret passageways? And no, we’re not telling—they wouldn’t be secret then, would they? You’re looking for a romantic setting for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Why not an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind place?
