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.
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!

Best place to get married in DC
District Winery was even better than we could have hoped. The team, the food, the environment - all were excellent. Many of our friends and family said it wast the best wedding they'd been to. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Perfect Venue and Amazing Service!
We got married at District Winery last weekend, and it was amazing! First off the venue is gorgeous - try finding another venue that is a winery on the water in a major city! DW is full service and their decorations, tables, chairs, china are all classic and beautiful, a stunning backdrop that only requires hiring a DJ, photographer, and florist to take care of the rest. They even include an amazing and professional Day of Coordinator! We did the family style fried chicken and hanger steak, and our guests have not stopped talking about how great the food and wine was.
More importantly, the team at District Winery made us feel like royalty. Rebecca was our day of coordinator, and she really took care of us. She made our wedding go off without a hitch, and she didn't let us worry about anything. We were running late to the venue after taking photos around DC, and Becca still snuck us in and out of the Barrel Room to take photos without our early arrival guests seeing us. She fixed my impossibly long train before I walked down the aisle, ushered us away to the bridal suite after our ceremony (and didn't let anyone in so that we had 10 minutes to ourselves), made sure we ate, but gave us enough time to say hi to all of our guests during dinner, and miraculously shuffled approximately 100 of our (rowdy) guests outside to do a beautiful sparkler exit. The rest of the team was incredibly nice and professional. Our guests all raved about the service. They helped us have the best night of our entire lives!
Two notes about DW:
- book as far in advance as possible because they book up fast, but don't be afraid of winter weddings as the venue is just as beautiful when it's dark out.
- make sure to buy flip flops for your female guests for dancing, DW does not allow bare feet in the venue (understandably).
