The French doors in this room lead to a covered patio that may be used as overflow space or a cocktail reception venue. As the night wears on couples may use the Tasting Room, only available after hours. This large area feels cozy thanks to a stone fireplace that serves as the perfect indoor ceremony spot in the event of inclement weather.

made my wedding day a dream
8 Chains North Winery was the best wedding venue I could have ever asked for. Elly, the events coordinator, was my savior the day of the wedding. She helped make the day about Matt and I, and that was so amazing of her to do. It also didn't hurt that she was always on wine duty :)
We had the max amount of guests at the venue, and it was still so spacious and comfortable. If you are debating on going with 8 Chains, I'd definitely recommend it.
If you're not getting married, they have an amazing winery and tasting area to enjoy!!Sent on 12/05/2019

Friendly, attentive, amazing!
8 Chains is not only an incredibly beautiful venue, but they have an amazing team that is extremely friendly and prepared for anything! Elly is the main point of contact for weddings, and she is extremely attentive and really knows what she's doing. She has recommendations for everything and really wants you to have a very special day. As an added bonus their wine is also really great! We joined their wine club and will continue with it for a long time after the wedding. If we could get married again we would pick this venue every time.Sent on 11/30/2019

An amazing venue with romantic atmosphere
8 Chains was such a breath of fresh air after touring a few wedding venues. Elly, the winery’s event coordinator, is very personable and made us feel like more than just another couple. The whole process from booking our venue to planning the ceremony specifics was seamless. Elly and the entire staff at 8 Chains did everything in their power to make all of our dreams for our big day come true. They really went above and beyond to accommodate our November wedding date by settling our nerves about the lighting and other options in case of bad weather. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and the wine is fantastic! Our wedding was everything we could ask for and more thanks to 8 Chains Winery North and especially Elly’s support.Sent on 01/28/2020
8 Chains North Winery's reply:Staci, it was such a pleasure to work with you and Michael. Your wedding was so beautiful. The lighted ceremony under the patio was so magical. Thank you for such kind words. Come by soon for some wine.
