We had a tremendous experience having our wedding at the Ronald Reagan Building Pavilion Room. The space is incredible, with lots of natural light and a high ceiling that provide a wow-factor (our wedding pictures turned out amazing). Also, the service was excellent. There were plenty of servers during cocktail hour (passed hors d'oeuvres), at the various bars, and during dinner service. The room was set perfectly for the ceremony, then they quickly and efficiently reset the room for the reception during the cocktail hour without anyone knowing. But probably the best part of the experience was our coordinator & day-of planner, Laurel Miller. She was incredible professional, responsive, pleasant, and did an exception job handling our special occasion. She made sure every detail was covered leading up to the wedding day, and took care of every issue that arose on that day. At one point we thought the lights were a little too bright, so we told her, and seconds they were dimmed. Laurel was always there if we needed her, but we never felt like she was interfering. We are so happy to have gotten the chance to work with her and to have had our wedding at the Ronald Reagan Building.

I'm so glad we chose the RRB it's so Grand & Spectacular. We knew we weren't having a church ceremony & didn't want to get married in a hotel ballroom, we wanted something different, unexpected and beautiful. The RRB gave us exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have picked a better venue. It's centrally located with lots of great hotels, activities, restaurants and bars nearby which was great because we had many family and friends fly in from all over the world. We loved the way the Woodrow Plaza looked and it was so grand it really didn't need much in the way of decorations and we loved that our reception location (Pavilion Room) could also serve as our rain back up so either way we had a great location for our ceremony. Again, the room was so stunning we just did lighting for decor & it looked great. It was certainly not the cheapest place in DC we looked at, but it was worth every penny. The customer service was outstanding. Lindsey was our sales person and she was wonderful. I honestly can not say enough good things about her. We had 2 planners, Annette & Lauren, because we were engaged for so long (19mo and we booked the venue 15mo out) Annette took another position within the RRB (but she still came to the rehearsal to say hello & check on me) after 13mo (so we worked with Lauren the last 2 months). Everyone was fantastic...they took such great care of us & on the day of the event both Lauren & Lindsey were with us making sure we had whatever we needed and our guests were happy. The day of we met Rene & he was fantastic. He took care of everything. All I had to do was ask and they took care of it, honestly most of the time I didn't even ask, they just knew what I needed before I did. They made sure we ate a little something...which was a life saver. We wouldn't have been able to party as hard as we did (at least not without getting grumpy) on an empty stomach. The food was cooked to perfection, we had Chicken & Rockfish duo, we got so many compliments.

Thanks to the Ronald Reagan Building, I had the dream wedding that I always wanted! Right from the start our experience with their staff was incredible. Lindsey and Lauren did everything in their power to make sure that we had everything the way we wanted it for our events. We were initially concerned about using them as our caterer because we had never had the food before and we wanted Indian food, but they hit the menu out of the park! We had a good fusion of Indian and American cuisine and the way they accommodated our every want and need was exceptional! I wish we could have another event so that we could use The Reagan Building again! Thanks so much Lindsey and Lauren! We will remember our wedding day forever!

The RRB staff was first rate. Our event coordinator Maura Ward and her team were excellent. The planning, all the way from the venue selection to the wedding night, could not have gone more smoothly. Maura is responsive, accommodating, and offers valuable guidance. She worked closely with and coordinated well with our vendors, which alleviated the burden for us. The staff was attentive, the food outstanding, and the Pavilion Room stunning. We could not have been happier with our experience!

I can not say enough great things about the Ronald Reagan Building and Maura Ward and Karambu Njogu. Maura was great through the entire process and was very responsive. We had the reception in the Pavilion Room. It was so beautiful and elegant! The reception flowed perfectly with the help of Maura and Karambu. We had about 200 guests and the room was perfect for that amount. The food was also fantastic! I have had several guests tell me that the appetizers and meals were amazing. People commented the most on the shrimp appetizer. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for your wedding. You will not be disappointed! It was the perfect place!

When searching for a venue, I knew I wanted a place that was modern, but "classic DC" and the Ronald Reagan Building was everything I envisioned. Initially, what stood out the most was during my first site visit when I met with Julia Rapley, she really did "sell" me on the place. She asked what other venues I was considering and step by step she made the case for why the Ronald Reagan Building was the better choice, even though I did not ask. I was impressed by her arguments, not only because I thought they were compelling, but because no other venue had made an argument for why I should select it instead of another.

The wedding was in the Pavilion section of the venue. It was stunning, the food was fantastic, and the service was amazing. Our guests were so impressed with the service that my uncle asked the staff for their manager so that he could given them a good review in person. Everything was excellent and the old adage, "You get what you pay for," really was true for this venue. We could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

Lindsay was our event coordinator. She was very professional and extremely responsive. She was also on site for the entire wedding to make sure things ran smoothly.

The team at the Ronald Reagan Building gave us the most amazing wedding experience. From our initial meeting through our wedding they made sure that everything was perfect. The team at the RRB was professional, helpful, and proactive in working with us. Throughout the process they found ways to make our planning process stress free. They are truly wonderful to work with!!! During planning I often times commented on their ability to make anything possible, from my request to hire a food truck for a late night snack to wanting to change change up the way our seating was laid out for our ceremony a week before our wedding - they took care of it all.

The RRB is a full service group that provides the catering, planners, and help through the whole process. Note: our food was amazing!!!! They even have a day of organizer (who was wonderful). They truly understand the concept of customer service; no matter when I emailed them they were responsive and worked with me to be sure that my event was planned perfectly. I cannot recommend them enough to work with.

What unbelievable food, service, professionalism and attentiveness. I cannot rave enough about how fantastic the Ronald Reagan Building is to work with. If you are looking for a venue which is heads and shoulders above anywhere else I would recommend the Ronald Reagan Building. From the moment we sat down with the sales person to two weeks after the wedding they have made every aspect of planning a wedding easy and successful. All my guests mentioned that the food was best they had ever had at a wedding and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. Lauren, the wedding coordinator given to us by the Ronald Reagan Building, was so exceptional she and the rest of the staff make the evening stress free.

I visited four venues when beginning to plan for my wedding and contacted several more. I wanted to have a very DC wedding in a modern space. After meeting with the Reagan Building, I knew immediately that I wanted to have my wedding there.

I was looking for a place that could accommodate our ceremony and reception. The Reagan Building fit that bill and so much more. First, the wedding package includes so much that it relieves your need to find and work with multiple other vendors. The Reagan caters the food and drinks, and that, of course, also includes all linens, dinnerware, votive candles, etc., as well as chiavari chairs. A dance floor is also included, so no need to rent that separately, either. The food is delicious and the service is very professional.

In addition to the sheer number of services the Reagan provides, the staff is incredibly flexible and works very hard to make sure your vision for the day is realized. I planned to have our reception in the Rotunda, which as the name implies, has an incredible high rounded ceiling. In this setup, the Horizon Ballroom is usually utilized as the ceremony space. I just don't particularly like the Horizon Ballroom and really wanted to do a "flip" and have both our ceremony and reception in the Rotunda and the cocktail hour in the Horizon Ballroom. The staff worked with me to figure out the logistical issues that needed to be addressed to make this happen, and on the wedding day, everything went perfectly.

I worked with Candice in sales and Jen in event planning, and I can't say enough good things about them. They both went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect! (As a side note, Jen was not my original event planner. My original event planner left the Reagan for reasons I don't know several months before my wedding. I actually did not click well with her and was glad to be assigned a new planner. I had contemplated asking for a reassignment right before I got the call that I would be working with Jen.)

All in all, I couldn't be happier that I selected the Reagan for our wedding. The professionalism of the staff ensured that everything went smoothly and the space itself makes for a stunning backdrop for the big day!
