Delmy is the venue coordinator and she is fantastic! I don't even know where else to begin with this review. When we first looked at the venue online we weren't really sure what it had to offer, but Delmy called us within seconds of submitting an inquiry and she was helpful throughout the whole process (and she gave us a great deal!). The venue is literally just a rooftop with two levels. The tented area is air conditioned (which was great for my August wedding) and it's really bare so you can really make the space your own. For me it was great, because the backdrop is what I was really looking for. You are literally a stone's throw away from the Capitol and Union Station and from one corner you can see the Washington Monument.
For our wedding, the venue was probably the best part. It ended up being a beautiful day and all of our out-of-town guests loved the view! We were actually surprised but how well everything turned out.
I highlight recommend this secret spot to see the DC views and Delmy is professional, caring, and great to work with!
We had our wedding here two weekends ago and it couldn't have been better! Anytime I had questions about the space and what I could or couldn't do, Delmy always responded quickly. She was a huge help throughout the entire process. She led me to our caterer, our florist, our DJ, and helped us find a hotel block for our out of town guests. And anytime I was unsure about how things would work, she let me come back and look at the space. A few weeks beforehand, I met with Delmy and our caterer and set up a back up plan in case of rain. Luckily, the weather held out...it was pretty cold...but no rain!
The only thing i was concerned about with this space, was how the guests would find their way around. But it all worked out! They had a person in the lobby and at the top of the stairs point people in the right direction.
The one negative, there was a bathroom that I understood to just be the wedding parties, and that didn't happen. Everyone was trying to use our bathroom. We tried putting a hand written sign on the door, but that didn't work. Luckily, nothing was taken and when i needed in, people would move out!All in all, the view makes the space. That was all everyone was talking about. It was a hit and i have only heard positive feed back. Can't wait to go back! A friend who was at our wedding just booked it for her upcoming party! Success!
The Capitol View at 400 is one of the most amazing event locations in all of DC. The venue overlooks Union Station in downtown DC. The view of the Capitol grounds and dome are breath taking. Because of the way the venue is setup, we were able to have our wedding event all in one location. The multiple level decks of the roof allowed for us to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on one level and our dinner on the top level under their beautiful covered deck.
There were 120 people at our wedding and there was plenty of room for dancing and partying all night. That being said, the space felt quite cozy and intimate for our big day. Working with Delmy leading up to our wedding day was nothing less than a dream. She was attentive to our needs and was always responsive to our emails and phone calls.
The venue also allowed our labradoodle Grizwold to be part of our wedding day on the roof deck. All in all, the Capitol View at 400 is the perfect venue for weddings or any other special events.
We just had our wedding there this past weekend September 12th.. It was an evening wedding from 7 til almost 1 am ...we had the space all day which was great .. We hired Davinci florists who did the centerpieces , dance floor , up lighting ,huppah,and decor.. What's great about the roof top is that's it's a blank canvas and you can make it anyway you want .. We dealt with the director who's name was Delmy and she made us feel so comfortable from the very beginning .. She was amazing and so sweet and accommodating and really cared about us and our wedding. I have to say that we had an amazing magical wedding ... The weather that day started off really bad and it was raining off and on.. Which would of put a big damper on our wedding if it did continue .. We had about 200 people coming and we needed all the space possible .. Our prayer must have been answered because it stopped raining and the weather was absolutely perfect .. People couldn't believe the venue .. They kept saying that the views were amazing .. We were so blessed to have the perfect wedding .. The small hick ups were nothing compared to the amazing weather we had .. The DJ was amazing as well .. We worked on the music for a couple months until we got it right .. We used DJ Andrew Hyatt .. For the ceremony we used the lower space of the venue .. We had our ceremony at 9:30 pm and it was beautiful .. The space had 200 chivary chairs and a lot of tables and high tops .. The price of venue wasn't to bad compared to what we got .. I give the place 5 stars because your wedding is supposed to be spectacular and memorable and this venue gave it all to us.. The staff was great especially Delmy.. She was accommodating and met with Us as many times prior as we wanted .. If your looking for a unique venue that everyone will admiring for months to come this is it .. If you have anymore questions about our wedding please ask with pleasure...Psuissa1@ yahoo.com.
