Meridian House Wedding_Washington DC
The Meridian House and the White-Meyer House, headquarters of Meridian International Center, are both examples of residential jewels of renowned architect John Russell Pope, who designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Gallery of Art (West Building) and the National Archives. The houses are adjacent to each other and surrounded by beautiful historic gardens, forming a city block of supreme historic and architectural interest. Each house provides a unique, unmatched venue for your next event, whether it be a corporate conference, a wedding, a special event, or a reception.
The Meridian House entrance boasts a welcoming limestone façade and two large oak doors. Over the front doors, the Latin inscription, “Quo habitat felicitas nil entret mali,” provides an inspiring message: “Where happiness dwells, evil will not enter.”
Though nestled quite close to the heart of Washington, DC, Meridian House is a spectacular retreat, surrounded by stone walls which shelter a grove of linden trees and manicured gardens.
