Has anyone been to a wedding ceremony and/or reception at the Mansion on O Street or the Josephine Butler Parks Center? In my ongoing quest to find a place actually in the District which fits within the budget ($9K - $10K without my dress and shoes), these venues have been suggested.
Their websites look great, but it's always nice to find someone who has actually been to an event there. Event managers can lull you into a state of giddiness that might completely evaporate once on site.
Please let me know if you've attended something at either place.
