Loved every thing about it
The district venue is an amazing venue with an amazing staff. The venue is located in a great area with many photo opportunities. The staff was great with explaining anything we were confused on and doing everything they could to make our day wonderful.Sent on 08/02/2020

The District made our dream come true
Our ceremony and reception in the District Venue was perfect and more than we dreamed. We made a small ceremony with 45 guests and Liz organized everything to perfection and utilized the space perfectly. She was very great and organized and helped us with every aspect. All of our guests complimented us about the space, food (so yumi) and it was a beautiful wedding, We are so thankful for everything!Sent on 10/28/2018
