    Carper Winery

    The most beautiful venue for a wedding. The newest patio expansions are perfect for keeping guests outdoors with plenty of space and room for hanging out. Couldn’t have asked for a more professional vendor to work with. Tracy is awesome and absolutely knows what she is doing! Our guests could not say enough good things about this venue after our wedding. So happy we chose Carper Winery!

    Best Decision

    COVID bride here! Even under our crazy circumstances of 2020, the Carper Winery was super accommodating to our needs and wants. As well as the CDC requirements during the pandemic. We had a small wedding which was unexpected from original plans but it was still amazing. We’re so lucky to have gotten married at such a beautiful venue. Tracy Carper is quick to respond, helpful and attentive to a brides requests, wants and expectations for your wedding. Their venue is beautiful and timeless. You won’t be disappointed!!
