    Wonderful, Memorable Venue

    We loved having our wedding at Mount Vernon. The site itself is beautiful and unique. They put a lot of effort to make the ceremony space, the sunken garden, look romantic. Their catering was excellent as well and they were very generous during our tasting. They had excellent service, the food was served hot and in a timely manner. Their bartenders were able to handle crowd. We really valued the event planner, Ashley Childs. She went above and beyond to make our day wonderful. She was great with communication and so organized that she almost doubled as a wedding planner for us. The staff even covered us with umbrellas when we were surprised by rain on our day of. We'd recommend Mount Vernon to anyone looking to get married in the D.C. area.

    I could not have asked for, or received, better support as I planned for my big day. The execution was flawless as the staff responded rapidly to those unexpected real life events that pop up.

    I can't say enough great things about Jessy Hewlett and her amazing team! Jessy is a wizard at what she does, and from the first planning meeting, it was much more like dealing with close friends and family than with a vendor. They have nearly all-inclusive options, and unlike the majority of weddings your guests will remember what they ate - the food is that good! The venue is historic and beautiful, and the property offers a lot of great photo opportunities. But you don't have to take my word for it; if you're considering Mount Vernon Inn, just call Jessy. She'll win you over.

    Mount Vernon Inn's reply:

    Dave & Amanda,

    Thank you for this glowing review! You both were a joy to work with and I'm happy to add you both to my family. I loved the history lesson of the pineapple and that you wore one as your boutonniere so unique and creative. We are so glad you both and your guests had a good time. Thank you again for this review.

    Best,

    Jessy
