Venue Spotlight: The Meridian House

Happy Tuesday! It’s time to explore another gorgeous venue! This next venue is as gorgeous and historic as the last, but is situated in a bustling urban city instead of the rolling mountains of the Blue Ridge. For all you city girls craving a venue with a historic feel and political vibe, the Meridian House in Washington DC is your destination.

The Meridian House was designed by renowned architect John Russel Pope, the talented man who also designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art and the National Archives. This historic home is also the headquarters of the Meridian International Center, which advances the United State’s public and cultural diplomacy efforts and has since 1960.  The house sits next to the White-Meyer house, another historic home which once housed two very prominent Washington families, including Henry White, a diplomat to Italy and France. Both houses are surrounded by private gardens, which make these homes seem like they are in the country, not the nation’s capital. The surrounding plush gardens and the home’s antique and formal interior make the Meridian House a perfect place for an intimate and formal wedding.  The cost to rent the house and gardens for a 10 hour event on a Saturday evening is $9,500. The house can hold up to 300 guests.
