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.Sent on 09/24/2018

I received compliments from many of my guests about my daughter's wedding at the Mount Vernon Inn. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The outdoor garden was a beautiful spot to hold the ceremony. Jessica Hewlitt, the events coordinator, was amazing. Not a thing was left to chance. She helped us with the planning and menu, alleviated any anxiety we may have had, and was there all evening to take care of the few little problems that arose. Coordination with outside vendors was made easy. it was a pleasure to attend my daughter's wedding and just enjoy the evening, knowing that everything was being taken care of. I would recommend the Mount Vernon for anyone planning a wedding in the Alexandria area.Sent on 12/15/2017
