    Hidden Gem

    The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs is such a hidden gem! This was the first venue we looked at, and booked shortly after. Cait was personable and quick to respond to any email or text. The venue itself is tucked away from any traffic/noise and the layout itself flows perfectly. Having a venue that has a gorgeous backup ceremony space is a huge plus as well. Not many of our guests have even heard of the Washington before, but they were all impressed with its beauty and history. We couldn't have picked a better venue. Thank you so much to Cait, Beatrice, and the rest of the HYS team. Our wedding was a dream come true!

    The Absolute Best!

    The Washington was THE perfect location for our wedding. Everything about it was magic. From the communication with Caitlin and Brittany down to the efficiency of the on-site staff the day of. Everything ran smoothly because of them. The location itself is STUNNING; rich in history and historic architectural details, beautiful landscaping and gardens. It was the most perfect place to be on such an important, special day and it made for some enthralling photos. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    So gorgeous!!

    I absolutely love The Washington. It’s a gorgeous location. The gardens are beautiful, we got so many compliments on the venue. It’s perfect and we needed little decor because it was so picturesque. Couldn’t imagine having our special day anywhere else.
