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 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.Sent on 01/03/2019
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 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.Sent on 04/26/2019

Perfect wedding experience
I can't say enough positive things about our experience with District Winery. Throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding, the team there was professional, responsive, and beyond organized. Our guests couldn't believe the attentive service and the delicious food. The transition from ceremony to reception was flawless, and there was plenty of room for our 170 guests, full band, and dance floor. The indoor space is a warm, chic setting, and the terrace provides a beautiful extension of the party area. All in all, the venue and the team there exceeded our already high expectations!Sent on 04/12/2019
