We were the very first wedding at District Winery and I cannot rave enough about how amazing this venue was. From the wonderful team (Brian, Courtney, Rebecca, Will, just to name a few) who took care of us in the months leading up to the wedding to the stunning views and... Read More exquisite details/decor of the space, we could not have picked a better venue. The owners (including Brian) show such pride and commitment in their work and DW is a true testament to this. Courtney (our event POC) was helpful, sweet, and willing to run any errand - even helping me back into my dress for the big wedding exit. The food was out of this world - everyone raved about it - which is saying a lot since wedding food (like airline food) is a bit notorious. And, the wine, my goodness the wine. I can't even begin to describe how on point the wine is. Even their chardonnay (which I don't normally drink) tasted like heaven in a glass. The backdrop was sensational. The warm wood accent creates such a cool winery vibe while being totally urban for those of us who crave a bit of rustic chic in a truly city setting. All of this set against the beautiful Anacostia waterfront with boats and greenery lending their natural beauty. Take a peek at some of our photos below! For all of those brides who have enough on their plates to plan without exhausting themselves with the details, in addition to taking care of everything in one fell swoop (tables, chairs, food, wine, etc.) they have so many accent pieces (bud vases, Mr./Mrs/ signs, votives, etc.) that you can borrow/use for your big day. Considering we booked the venue without seeing it (it was just beginning construction when we booked) and considering we were the first wedding, I can only imagine how amazing this venue will become going forward. Don't wait - just go ahead and book it now! We live less than a mile from the winery and know that this is going to be a spot we venture to on dates for a long time to come.
