Weddings at the Ronald Reagan Building

Ronald Reagan Building weddings

Weddings at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. exceed expectations in every way. What makes them so special? Perhaps it’s the wide variety of sophisticated event spaces and sweeping views of Pennsylvania Avenue. Or it could be the culinary masterpieces presented by the building’s in-house catering team. Many would say it’s the white-glove service provided by the venue’s experienced wedding planning staff, who work closely with couples to ensure every detail is perfect. Without exception, weddings and events at the Ronald Reagan Building are equally magnificent and memorable.

The Atrium is the venue’s most well-known event space, accommodating over 800 for a seated reception. Featuring terrazzo marble and granite floors, a grand staircase, striking columns and Keith Sonnier’s renowned “Route Zenith” sculpture, the Atrium is a space that’s beyond unique. Nearby, the Atrium Ballroom seats just over 600 for a reception, with more classic architecture and a color palette of cream, green and gold. Many wedding couples are won over by the unusual Pavilion room, an open ten-sided space seating 280 with a soaring cathedral ceiling, multiple balconies and a maple hardwood foyer. For more intimate weddings, the Rotunda also features an unconventional circular room shape, a 28-foot dome ceiling with numerous lighting options for a dazzling wash of color, rich cherry paneling and seating for 170. Finally, the Woodrow Wilson Plaza is one of the most highly requested outdoor wedding venues in Washington, D.C. This four-acre courtyard, thoughtfully landscaped and appointed with remarkable statues and granite cobblestones, can accommodate 500 for a seated reception. With its variety of awe-inspiring event sites and prime location in the heart of D.C., the Ronald Reagan Building should be considered by any couple seeking to host an exceptional wedding.

Location: 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004.
