Beautiful venue and amazing customer service!
We cannot express enough how pleased we have been working with Caitlin and the Washington during this crazy time. She has been thoughtful, considerate, flexible and all around supportive of making the best possible outcome for us.
It's easy to be accommodating when there isn't a pandemic; they have truly risen above the rest in their efforts to reasonably reschedule and see to our needs. If this is how the Washington conducts themselves during an ever-changing and restrictive pandemic, this is a testament to their character, passion and professionalism.
Their willingness to adapt and make our day the best it could be, in spite of the restrictions meant a lot to us and our limited guests.
Top notch organization with top notch people; a standard of service above the rest. Thank you so much for helping in the most sincere way to make our day special and we look forward to working with you in the future!

The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs and working with Cait was a phenomenal experience that I would choose again in a heartbeat. The HYS is a beautiful venue with a vintage, classic, boho like vibe. The grounds and the buildings are beautiful and it was a perfect day working with a perfect team. Cait answered all my questions and concerns and was so patient and helpful with the whole process. I would 10/10 recommend this venue and working with Cait.Sent on 01/06/2020

The Perfect Place
I am so thankful to have had my wedding at The Washington. It is absolutely beautiful. The gardens and porch are probably my favorite parts :) We got married in June so everything was so bright and lush. From day one Caitlin was a dream to work with. Super responsive, friendly, and helpful with any questions I had. Thank you for everything you did to make our special day so perfect! I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a beautiful outdoor space for your ceremony/cocktail hour/photos, great flow, and tons of history.Sent on 04/08/2020
