“The Best,” “Incredible,” “Breathtaking,” “Stunning” were the words our friends and family shared after our incredible wedding at District Winery in mid-February.
From our private walkthrough before the grand opening, to our couples tasting where we got to taste EVERYTHING ON THE MENU, to planning correspondence in person and virtually with Rebecca (our on-site event mastermind), to our rehearsal the day before… everything was perfect.
As for the wedding. The modern/urban/semi-industrial feel was so “us” and set the perfect backdrop for a magical night. We arrived about an hour before the ceremony to first take a few pictures in the Barrel Room and then relax in the Barrel Room Suite with the girls while my groom and his boys relaxed on the mezzanine.
When it was time for the ceremony, Rebecca gathered us up and ensured we were all at the right place and in the right order – whilst also coordinating with our officiant and DJ. Following the ceremony, my new hubby and I spent a few private moments alone in the Barrel Room Suite (complete with our own private set of h'dourves and sparkling wine). We then joined our friends and family upstairs in the mezzanine for a cocktail hour with 8 amazing apps and drinks (tons of wine, local beers, and top shelf liquor) were so yummy.
The reception was immaculate and effortlessly cool. We selected the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Grilled Hanger Steak for our entrees and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes and Crispy Brussels Sprouts for our sides. So frickin’ fresh and delicious!! Our guests said it was the dining experience they’ve ever had at a wedding. We really liked the vibe of a family style meal with “French style” tableside serving of the entrees. Rebecca’s coordination of our first dance, welcome speech, cake cutting, family dances, and more was top notch. Everyone shared that they had a fantastic time stop to finish as the flow was simply fantastic. Thank you District Winery!

Absolutely LOVED District Winery!
We could not have chosen a better reception location for our wedding! The food and dinner service was absolutely amazing. We really enjoyed the family style dinner matched with the farm style long tables. We were really hoping for a "Thanksgiving style family dinner" vibe...and this is exactly what we got. Our guests have not stopped raving about the food ever since. I have had several folks tell me our food was the best wedding food they have ever had. The atmosphere and location is perfect and we loved that our guests had the chance to experience the beautiful Navy Yard neighborhood and all it has to offer. The space itself is perfect for a reception. Our guests were able to enjoy cocktails on the covered balcony (it was a bit rainy and cold that day and DW accommodated by covering the balcony so our guests would be comfortable) and a live Mariachi band while the dinner space was prepped. Everything about the space and location has been perfectly thought out to ensure a coordinated flow for the event. Everything went off without a hitch. We were SO SO SO SO happy with it! District Winery is the PRIME wedding reception location in DC. We would recommend this location to anyone and are actually looking forward to getting to go to another wedding at DW soon (crossing fingers!)
