The Decatur House on Lafayette Square, which sits across from the White House in downtown Washington, DC offers a beautiful and historic site for your wedding. It is a DC wedding venue where we have had the pleasure of deejaying many times throughout the years, and a place we are always excited to go back to! Couples can check out Decature House this weekend at the Engaged! 2013 Luxury Bridal Event.
Decatur House designed by famous architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe is a National Trust Historic Site owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated by the White House Historical Association. In addition to being a renowned historic site for DC, it has also been recognized for over a decade as one of the top wedding venues by Washingtonian Magazine and Engaged Magazine. As apart of it’s mission, Decatur House hosts “fine Washington entertaining by offering rental opportunities for receptions, weddings, meetings and parties.”
In it’s classic Washington style, guests have the option to entertain in the outside courtyard surrounded by Decatur’s gardens, in the Carraige House, or in the Decatur House parlors. Because of it’s elegant and refined atmosphere, the last thing you want are large speakers and bundles of wires everywhere! So, we always bring our wireless Bose speakers and set them up to ensure they are heard but not a large distraction for pictures!
We were there recently for a wedding and took a few pictures to show how seamlessly our DJ equipment and wireless Bose speakers fit into the Decatur House.
We hope you consider Chris Laich Music Services for your next wedding or event at the Decatur House!
