I can't say enough good things about our experience with District Winery. The venue itself is stunning, and we loved the fact that it was a pretty all-inclusive package so we didn't have to search for and manage a separate caterer or rent tables and chairs etc. And the food! Nobody goes to a wedding expecting to have amazing food, and our guests are still talking about how delicious everything was. Our event manager, Courtney Ross, was a joy to work with. In the months leading up to the wedding she was super responsive to any questions we had (and I had a lot!), and she was a calm, collected presence on the day of making sure everything ran smoothly. The whole team is really wonderful and genuinely cares about each wedding they host, and it feels like we're part of a really great community now! I would recommend District Winery to anyone with zero hesitation - if you have your wedding here, it's guaranteed to be amazing.
“The Best,” “Incredible,” “Breathtaking,” “Stunning” were the words our friends and family shared after our incredible wedding at District Winery in mid-February. From our private walkthrough before the grand opening, to our couples tasting where we got to taste EVERYTHING ON THE MENU, to planning correspondence in person and virtually with Rebecca (our on-site event mastermind), to our rehearsal the day before… everything was perfect. As for the wedding. The modern/urban/semi-industrial feel was so “us” and set the perfect backdrop for a magical night. We arrived about an hour before the ceremony to first take a few pictures in the Barrel Room and then relax in the Barrel Room Suite with the girls while my groom and his boys relaxed on the mezzanine. When it was time for the ceremony, Rebecca gathered us up and ensured we were all at the right place and in the right order – whilst also coordinating with our officiant and DJ. Following the ceremony, my new hubby and I spent a few private moments alone in the Barrel Room Suite (complete with our own private set of h'dourves and sparkling wine). We then joined our friends and family upstairs in the mezzanine for a cocktail hour with 8 amazing apps and drinks (tons of wine, local beers, and top shelf liquor) were so yummy.The reception was immaculate and effortlessly cool. We selected the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Grilled Hanger Steak for our entrees and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes and Crispy Brussels Sprouts for our sides. So frickin’ fresh and delicious!! Our guests said it was the dining experience they’ve ever had at a wedding. We really liked the vibe of a family style meal with “French style” tableside serving of the entrees. Rebecca’s coordination of our first dance, welcome speech, cake cutting, family dances, and more was top notch. Everyone shared that they had a fantastic time stop to finish as the flow was simply fantastic. Thank you District Winery!
