We just had our wedding here last weekend, and it was AMAZING!
While the cost at first may seem a little more than some places, it is worth every penny when all is said and done. Because the price includes so much (coordinators, food, drink, decor, etc.), I think its a good overall value. Food was fantastic, wine (and all other drinks!) were great, staff is super friendly and competent, and the setting just can't be beat.
The entire experience, from day one, was incredibly smooth for such a big event with so many moving parts. We knew we wanted a place were we could have the ceremony and reception on site, have great food, have a great party, and this venue checked every box. We ended up getting married on a Sunday, vice a Saturday, just so we could do it here (btw Sunday wedding made my weekend much more relaxed, so worked out great).
One of the main pros about this place (besides the amazing food and wine) is that they are all pros- they do events all the time and know what they are doing. This was really important for us, since neither one of us had much of a vision for the big day- we just knew we wanted to get married, eat, drink and be merry.
Rebecca, our day of coordinator, was excellent. She helped us fill in the holes on our plans (without trying to push things we didn't want) and basically ran the show the day of- she really should be in the military planning things ;) . She herded all our family members/friends during the rehearsal, created a detailed timeline for the day of that made things run smoothly, and did so many things behind the scenes that I probably am not even aware of. To me, the day was super easy and breezy- and I know that was all Rebecca.

Love this place!

When we found District Winery, we knew our search for the perfect venue was over! Not only is the space and surrounding area gorgeous, but the menus were creative, the wine and open bar was delicious, the service was top notch, and every element was top-of-the-line. District Winery makes the very strenuous wedding planning process as straight forward as possible by providing much of the essentials (catering, tables/chairs, etc), while also allowing flexibility in many vendors. Rebecca was our Event Coordinator and is very helpful and responsive. Don't miss out on an opportunity to have your wedding at District Winery!
