Best day, best team, best venue
There are no words to describe how wonderful, helpful, and thoughtful the entire District Winery team is. This was the first and only venue we looked at - one that captures breathtaking scenery, urban ... Read more architecture, and an atmosphere unique to DC. From the moment we confirmed our date, Sloan, Courtney, and (last but certainly not least!) Becca and Ryan treated us like VIPs - walking us through each stage of the day and the various decisions we had to make regarding the run-of-show and vendors. Top notes: 1. We held our ceremony here, as well, and the transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception was seamless. 2. The food (hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, dinner and desserts) and drinks were the best we've had at a wedding - a sentiment echoed by our guests and family members. 3. Despite having a wedding of 175 people, we had enough space for a full band and spacious dance floor. 4. Having the heated outdoor terrace space was priceless - many guests moved between the outdoors and inside and sat by the fire pit. We can't thank the District Winery team enough!

District Winery is amazing, plain and simple. It's beautiful. The food tasted better than any wedding food I'd ever had. And the staff was a dream. Rebecca organized and coordinated our wedding down ... Read more to the minute -- we couldn't have done that without her. Multiple guests have told us it was the best timed wedding -- there was no down time between food service or a first dance or weird breaks. She made sure everything ran smoothly, from making sure my friends came in to bustle my dress, to finding the maid of honor and best man to give the speech, to making me laugh as I was about to cry when it came time to walk down the aisle. We signed on to District Winery before it was fully constructed, but Brian really hooked us with his vision and how genuine he was. Highly, highly recommend.

Best decision ever
Booking with District Winery was the best decision we made planning our wedding. Everything about District Winery is so well run and seamless. I can echo what other reviews said about the food being ... Read more amazing---all our guests raved that this was the best wedding food they had ever had. People were so happy to get seconds and thirds of the entrees too! Our event manager, Stephanie was absolutely wonderful. She anticipated our needs at every step of the way. The timing of the speeches, dessert, late night food station, sparkler exit, etc. was all seamless under Stephanie's coordination. She was also flexible to change things right up until our wedding day! Other staff was wonderful as well, making sure that my husband and I always had a drink in hand if we wanted and bringing us glasses of water when we didn't even ask for it. The space is also so so beautiful. You really don't even need a lot of decorations because it is so beautiful. Also, for me, I lived in New York and have a pretty demanding job so I didn't have a lot of time to do wedding planning and coordinate among various vendors. I loved that so many things were included, not only the plates and linens but also the votive candles, easels, gift card boxes, and more! I simply cannot recommend District Winery enough---do not hesitate to book here because it is all worth it and more!
