I wanted to book this for our wedding venue as soon as I saw the pictures online. At first visit, I was even more excited, seeing the beautiful scenery in person. There are amazing photographic spots all over the grounds, the chateau itself is gorgeous, and Diane is so wonderful to work with! The venue has lots of space, but felt intimate at the same time. It was the perfect balance for us, as we had a smaller ceremony (with 50 guests). The chateau is wonderfully decorated, so we didn't need to do much on our end. Also, the fireplace made for a beautiful alter on it's own, and allowed us to have the look we were going for, without having to do the extra work! The pricing was extremely reasonable, though we did have our wedding off-season. DeLille even offered to split the cost of the tent, since we had the wedding one day before the winery had their annual event. (We were so appreciative of that!) For the reception, everyone was seated comfortably on the patio, and that space turned into game tables once it was party time. (It was a perfect set up for those who have kids at their wedding.) The entire staff was extremely friendly and the wine is great! Plus, being brand new to the area, Diane was an amazing first contact in the wedding planning process!

As parents of the bride, we wanted the bride's and groom's wedding to be memorable. With Diane's assistance and the beauty of DeLILLE, their wedding was magical, memorable and special for them and all their wedding guests.
Diane's personal assistance was so helpful navigating through vendors and costs. Her suggestions helped us to achieve our daughter's and son-in-law's wedding vision.
Thank you to Diane and DeLILLE staff for sharing your experience and the exquisite beauty of DeLILLE's,
Mary and Ruben

One of my most favorite venues in Washington! The grounds for photographs are stunning all year round. The indoor spaces are gorgeous and can be personalized easily, and the staff go out of thier way to be accomodating. Every client I've worked with at Delille Cellars, has loved the entire experoience.
We LOVE DeLille! We've had the pleasure of planning and designing several events at the chateau. Their venue coordinator, Diane, has been nothing short of amazing. She's kind, concise, and a joy to work with. The grounds are kept beautiful year round, making any wedding photo gorgeous.
Such a romantic venue. Close to everything but when you're there you feel like you are miles away from it all. Professional, helpful, courteous staff. With it's wine, gardens, grapevines, beautiful architecture...it's a little slice of Italy right here in our own backyard!
