We want to thank you for the great evening everyone had on Friday at The Observatory. The guests did not want to leave which says it all. It was the perfect start to the wedding weekend.

This venue is absolutely stunning. It’s been several months after our wedding and we consistently still have guests telling us how beautiful our ceremony venue was. It has a breathtaking view of the Capitol and is extremely well maintained. We fit our 160 wedding guests under the provided tents for our ceremony with room to spare. Suzanne and the entire staff were a delight to work with and they really saved the day by accommodating us by scheduling a tour and our event very quickly after having our original venue cancel only 5-weeks before the big day.

No matter what time of day, it’s a most amazing venue.
