District Winery wasn't built yet when we booked. But we felt pretty good about taking the risk after looking at renderings and reading reviews of Brooklyn Winery. We think some of our guests were equally excited about the venue and our actual wedding! It's a beautiful space with little need for decorations. It is also all-inclusive: food, tables, barrels, premium drinks, coat check, day-of coordinator, and even some decorations and accent pieces (candles, lanterns). The staff will set up all the decorations for you after you tell them how you'd like it. You don't have to worry or assign extra people to do this. We got to go to a tasting event with other couples where we got to try everything on the menu and all the drinks. It was a lot of fun and gave us confidence in our menu picks. The staff were always nice and welcoming. We didn't hear any rumblings about bad service during the wedding. We received a lot of compliments on the space and the food - even from some picky guests. The fried chicken and brussel sprouts are their signature items. The hanger steak is cooked to medium rare perfection. It's very good for wedding food! There is a wrap around balcony which makes for a nice break and sunset photos. They are very accommodating of venue walkthroughs for you or your vendors. The barrel room is beautiful. They even provide a small basket of emergency items inside the bathroom. Courtney was our coordinator and she always seemed happy and helpful. Our questions or requests were never met with a "no" or bad attitude by anyone. We highly recommend District Winery for a wedding venue. You will cut down your work by at least 25%! My one complaint would be that they disassembled my bridal bouquet and ceremony arrangements to put on the tables. I think they ended up putting more flowers on the guest tables than I wanted/planned so I didn't get to keep my bouquet or even see it again. Not sure if we were short on vases but wish they had asked first.

We were beyond thrilled with our Saturday evening wedding at DW!! We looked at DW before it was built. Immediately Brian (owner) impressed us with a hour-plus phone call where he detailed out every element of the wedding. We were confident DW knew how to host a wedding our guests would enjoy. Leading up to our wedding we visited DW many times and were always treated a special guests, and they consistently expressed how appreciative they were that booked their venue. Several times they allowed us to walk through the venue when our families visited.
We were assigned to work with Rebecca to plan the wedding details. She was super responsive and on top of every element. We did a lot of the planning ourselves and considered hiring a day-of-coordinator, but there was no need. DW worked off a shared Google doc that made it easy to keep track of our seating chart, vendor list and the decor we were bringing to the venue. Rebecca was helpful in coordinating with our vendors leading up to the wedding but was a rockstar the day of. She was super organized, knew where everything was supposed to go, kept everyone on schedule. Our wedding was flawless! We've been wracking our brains to find something that went wrong or not as well as we would have hoped and can't think of a thing. Even our vendors said they loved working with DW because they were so organized and clear.

This venue is built specifically to host weddings and the staff pull them off perfectly. Even our tasting was a fun experience - a night where we met 30 other couples and tried every single item DW offers. We didn't have time to eat that much at our wedding, but we took comfort in knowing we've already enjoyed their feast. They also provided the bridal party with snacks, a huge charcuterie board, and champagne. We were well taken care of!

We are thrilled to have the memories but also to be part of such a respectable and friendly family, and can't wait to return to Ana to celbrate again and again!
