    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!

    Cant recommend this place enough! Liz the coordinator was not only accommodating but also helpful! She worked with our budget and made it work for us. The place is beautiful and well decorated.

    Beautiful venue

    The district venue is an absolutely beautiful venue and do set up and tear down of everything (aside from your personal decorations). Catering is expensive and does have to go through the venue. The venue does taste testing, which is very helpful. When ordering the food, you only need to request food for the number of people attending. If additional food is needed they will make more on the spot and the difference can be inside at the end of the night. Some cons, we had a large guest list and they put the food up against the wall, making it take forever for people to go through food and eat. The front of the room was fine eating while those sitting in the loft still needed to get food. It would have been better for them to have pulled the tables away from the wall and allow both sides to be used for the buffet. Additionally, our cake need to be in the frig and we head asked about the use of the frig and told this was not a problem. Unfortunately, the cake vendor was forced to put our cake on a bucket. This made her very uncomfortable as it was not sturdy and it was a 3 tier cake. Everything ended up ok but this just put the cake baker in a bad spot and they didn't want the cake to fall over. There is also a fee for using a credit card.
