We had our wedding at Mallard on August 14th and it was beyond perfect. Danielle and her team were so responsive throughout our entire planning process. They really helped us create a day that was unique to us. I was so relaxed the day of the wedding because I knew Danielle had taken care of everything. Our bridal attendant was also amazing and did a wonderful job of taking care of us and our extremely large and rowdy bridal party. From the service to the food, everything was amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests about everything! We could not have asked for a more perfect day :)

Our wedding was Friday 8/7 at Mallard island Yacht Club. It was the most amazing event we could have imagined. Everything exceeded our expectations. For starters, Danielle and the entire Mallard staff was professional and beyond helpful. Danielle made the day run smoothly and left no detail unturned. Her knowledge of local vendors and recommendations were greatly appreciated and turned out to be excellent as we acted on many of them. Most importantly, Danielle was always available to provide assistance whenever needed. The staff seemed to be an extension of Danielle’s affability and responsiveness as they were helpful in every sense of the word. The food was prompt and the bar was always efficient. Every piece of food we tasted was amazing. The cocktail hour, salad, entrée, and desserts were all delicious. The feedback received by us and others about the food was of equally high praise. Equally importantly, the staff was super nice. The venue was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Seemingly every different faction of the people attending our wedding had an absolute blast. I would highly recommend Mallard Island Yacht Club and Taste catering to anyone! Thank-you for making our wedding day amazing.

Don't think twice just go ahead & book your wedding at the Mallard Island Yacht Club. From the first day we saw this venue my daughter, son-in-law and myself knew that this was the right spot. Danielle and the entire staff were just amazing and helped make it just a perfect day. Seeing the smiles on my daughter's & new son's faces after the wedding was well worth it!

Our wedding was at Mallard Island Yacht Club on 7/31/15. Since then, we have received several emails, texts, and calls from friends and family who called it "the best wedding they have wever been to". Danielle and the staff were extremely responsive, attentive, and professional. During the planning process, I had so many questions, ideas, and concerns, and Danielle responded to each and every one promptly, and thoroughly...even on her days off! Her knowlegde of local and reliable vendors-from where to board our dog, to nannies for our flower girls and ring bearers - made our planning so much easier. Kelsey, our bridal attendant was extremely helpful and attentive. She did everything with a smile-no task was too big or too small. She even took the time to sew a ripped bridesmaid's dress before our walk down the aisle. So many of our guests raved about the food and the service-the mini ice cream cones were the biggest hit! The location is spectacular, and we got so many amazing pictures on the dock, in the bridal suite, in the chapel, and on the beach. Our wedding experience at Mallard was perfect. I only wish I could do it all again!

Weddings of Distinction is a top notch business. There wasn't a single request that wasn't met. The staff was extremely professional while being personable at the same time. The Mallard is gorgeous and everything went smoothly. A number of my friends work in event planning in Northern Virginia and had nothing but compliments for the staff. It was so great to have a single point of contact that facilitated and coordinated everything. Danielle is awesome.

This is the best place on earth! Our wedding was more than we could ever hope for! First of all not only is it absolutely beautiful but the people who are working make it a dream come true. Michelle and Marcie were out of this world and I couldn't have asked for more. Before I could even think to want something they were right there for my husband and I! So cool to have awesome people surrounding you who know there stuff and do it with ease. I genuinely can say that they added a huge amount to the wedding. Danielle- where do I start! Anything and everything you need she is right there and does it with ease. If you want the best- then mallard it is!

Love,
The Rooneys ☺️

My husband and I had a perfect wedding at Mallard Island Yacht Club from the start of the planning process to day after my wedding. Danielle was so responsive and easy to work with from start to finish. She is very thorough and made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of and perfect! On the day of our wedding, Danielle and her staff were so attentive and helpful. The actual day went so smoothly. Danielle even took numerous pictures of every single aspect throughout the day, which we greatly appreciated! It is obvious that she loves her job.

We were a little concerned about being able to hear cars going by during our ceremony, but we DID NOT hear a thing! All of our guests were raving about the place, from the food to the staff to the breathtaking grounds. Given the chance to do it all over again, I would absolutely choose Mallard a second time, and would request to work with the exact same staff. I actually cried when leaving the morning after our wedding, because I had such an amazing experience that I did not want it to end!

My son was married at Mallard Island Yacht Club, and this was truly a wedding of distinction. The venue is gorgeous, and its staff is super. From beginning to end, Danielle was perfect to work with, and made the whole process very easy. She truly took care of most questions and concerns prior to as well as the day of wedding, even considering that bride/groom live in another state. I could not ask for a more perfect wedding, and our guests are still talking about the "best wedding they ever went to"!!!

We had our daughter's wedding reception at the Mallard Island Yacht Club on May 16, 2015. It exceed our expectations. The bridal suite is stunning and it was so much fun to have everyone getting hair and makeup done in the beauty salon that is part of the suite. I was able to put goodies in the kitchen area for everyone to enjoy before the wedding. The ballroom is elegant and sophisticated, perfect for the bride who wants to be a princess for a day. We stayed overnight after the reception and it made enjoying the reception until the very last minute an easy thing to do. The younger folks continued on to the afterparty. Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, including their own!

Danielle is very helpful and enthusiastic. She knows the importance of the day for her clients and she strives to make the experience everything expected and more. I have to stay her stories of heroism in preventing problems and glitches the day of the wedding are quite entertaining on their own and just show how dedicated Danielle is to making each and every wedding dream come true. She clearly knows what she's doing.

Regarding food, EVERYONE to a guest raved about the food from appetizers to dessert. I have to say the cannolli station had the best cannolli I've ever eaten. It was delicious. The service was outstanding. Everyone was accommodating and attentive.
