  • I recently had the pleasure of working with Alex and Olivera to plan my upcoming wedding. They were recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad I went with them. They were so professional and patient with my fiance and I. We didn't do much research and had a lot of questions but they really put me at ease and walked us through everything. I feel so confident now and highly recommend them!

  • We fell in love with Toolbox on our first tour, and our experience only got better from there. The venue is beautiful and it’s in a great location. The staff at Toolbox is incredible. Alex and Ollie were an absolute joy to work with. They made sure everything was perfect down to the tiniest detail – coordinating with vendors, offering ideas for decorating, and making sure the wedding ran perfectly on time. Alex, Ollie and the rest of the team at Toolbox made sure our day was perfect and totally stress free. We cannot recommend Toolbox highly enough.

  • We truly cannot say enough kind things about the Toolbox or the wonderful people who work there. Alex was absolutely fantastic and made us feel so welcome and assured that the wedding would go to plan. The space is absolutely gorgeous and so well decorated. The art on the wall is absolutely beautiful and our guests raved about the space! It was especially nice that it was all indoors and our guests never had to go outside as we had a winter wedding. The day of ran so smoothly and Ollie, Eva, and Alex helped in every way they could. They gave wonderful recommendations for the other venders but never made us feel pressured to take them. We had just under 90 guests and the space was filled perfectly. Thank you so much, Alex and team! We cannot thank you enough and we certainly will recommend you to other engaged couples every chance we get!

  • We could not have asked for a better wedding day, mostly because of Toolbox. The minute we saw the space, we know it was perfect for us. The small art studio is modern, intimate, centrally located, and simply beautiful. We held both our ceremony and reception for 120 guests at Toolbox. Alex was *fantastic* to work with throughout the planning process. He was super communicative and went far above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect day, helping out with everything from logistics surrounding decor to selecting great local vendors. Olivera, our day-of-coordinator who frequently works with Toolbox, was absolutely AMAZING. She ensured every single minute of our wedding day went smoothly. She coordinated with all of our vendors, set up our decor perfectly, swiftly rounded up our guests, and made sure we ate :) Between Alex and Olivera, no detail went unnoticed. If you're looking for a beautiful, modern venue in the middle of the city, look no further than Toolbox!

  • We absolutely loved having our wedding at Toolbox. It's a beautiful space, and between the art and the atmosphere, it feels really special. We had ~80 attendees and - while we definitely could have fit more - it was a nice, cozy space for that group. Alex was fantastic throughout the process, and had a ton of great suggestions. He put us in touch with most of the vendors we ended up using, and all of them were great. Olivera was our day of coordinator, and she was very organized and helpful. With her help, and because everyone had worked together before, everything went off like clockwork. If we had it to do over again, we'd do the exact same thing in a heartbeat.

  • We had viewed a few other venues before walking into Toolbox, and once we did we immediately put down a deposit and canceled our other appointments. The space is very industrial, filled with art, and just had a feel that we didn't see anywhere else. The owner, Alex, was amazing to work with. He would respond to questions within a few hours, gave us some great vendor recommendations, and was really committed to making sure that we loved the space as much as he does. The wedding felt intimate while still being big enough for people to spread out and enjoy the space. When we think of our wedding it's impossible not to think of the venue being a significant part of it and we're so happy that we decided to have our big day at Toolbox.

  • We saw tons of fancy DC venues, but we only got really great vibes from Toolbox. It's a beautiful, unpretentious, fun space, and Alex will make you feel right at home. I really liked that Alex was flexible with what we could do with the space and encouraged us to be creative. I recommend hiring a day of coordinator through Toolbox - Olivera was super nice and helpful. She was organized day of and I was never bothered with any issues what-so-ever! Also, go with all of Alex's recommendations for vendors and hotels. They know the space well and will treat you royally. Overall, the experience with Toolbox was really enjoyable and made wedding planning much easier than I think it could have been.

  • We cannot think of a better venue for a DC wedding than the Toolbox. The space—with modern art, brick walls, wide-plank wood floors and twinkle lights—is to die for. Owner/manager Alex was a joy to work with. And Olivera, our day-of planner, was super kind and made sure to take care of every detail so we could just enjoy. We cannot say enough about the whole experience! Thanks Alex!

  • We worked with toolbox for our February wedding and could not have been happier with our decision. They were professional, helpful, and accommodating every step of the way! Alex helped us envision the layout of the event and had so many creative and fun ideas. His team was tremendously helpful on the day of the wedding and we did not have to worry about a thing! He even communicated directly with our vendors to make sure there would be no logistical snags and that things would flow smoothly. We were so happy to get to work with the Toolbox team and can't recommend them enough to any couple planning their big day.

  • I got married at the Toolbox last month and people are still talking about how beautiful the venue was. I have to agree - it was my dream wedding. The Toolbox's Day-of-Coordinator helped me with planning from start to finish, even suggesting other great vendors and recommending little design details. I didn't have to worry about a thing and ended up with a perfectly orchestrated wedding. If you're looking for an intimate and beautiful venue and a talented staff, this is the place. You won't regret it!

  • We had wanted an "all in one" space for our wedding and reception, that was unusual, and the Toolbox provided it. It can be slightly difficult to find, but it was a gorgeous space and totally worth it! Alex (the owner) and his family take the time to give you ideas, they do amazing work at the space to make it feel beautiful and special, and the vendors the suggest give you a leg up on the wedding planning while.providing exceptional service.

  • Toolbox is a unique, beautiful venue, and I couldn't be happier we chose it for our wedding day. From our first meeting with Alex, I knew we were in good hands. He is so responsive, and takes lots of time to answer questions, and is continuously in contact from the visit until the wedding day. He really understands his space, and knows what will work perfectly to make it a beautiful day. Lana, our day-of coordinator, was a huge asset as well. We did not have a wedding planner, but hiring her to coordinate on-site the day of the wedding was such a good decision. She was really involved with everything going on, and her preparation at our rehearsal on Friday made everything go smoothly. She worked seamlessly with all of the vendors, and as I told her, if anything was going on behind-the-scenes, I had no idea about it! It was all perfect, and her help was a major part of that. I would highly recommend Toolbox to anyone planning a wedding in DC. The staff and the space will make ... Read more

  • Toolbox created the perfect space for our casual reception. The space is so beautiful (rustic/industrial chic) that it needs very little decoration. Our 120 guests mingled comfortably (we did not do a seated dinner). Great dancing space! All around, a very beautiful and unique venue. Our only issue was a lack of communication from the events manager. We didn't find out that we needed to rent chairs until less than two weeks before the wedding. We had a hard time getting timely responses to our emails.

  • We held our entire wedding at Toolbox - ceremony and reception - for about 115 guests. Those looking for mid-sized DC venues need not look any further; just take a visit and look at the beautiful space. Alex was great to work with and made the experience feel really special for us. They were extremely flexible and helpful throughout the planning process and leading up to the wedding, and allowed our vendors the space they needed. We had so many compliments from our guests about the space, and we loved the art exhibition that was downstairs. Overall it was an incredibly special night in our city made even more special by Toolbox.
