About Cedar Ridge Vineyards

Located in Swisher, Iowa, Cedar Ridge Vineyards is a winery wedding venue. The estate is situated on a hilltop and is a short distance from Iowa City and Cedar Rapids. Here, couples and their guests can enjoy sweeping views of the vineyard and its gorgeous surroundings. This establishment began in 2005 when Jeff Quint, and ninth-generation farmer and fermenter, left accountancy. Returning to his roots, he and his wife Laurie opened Cedar Ridge. Since then, they have been the recipients of national and international acclaim.

    I cannot say enough good things about how much we loved working with Cedar Ridge. We cannot say enough good things about Ashton. She was very quick to respond and always answered questions when we had them. The day of the wedding couldn't have gone any smoother.

    Planning a wedding in Iowa from the East Coast meant booking a venue before ever having visited it. But once we starting looking into having our wedding at Cedar Ridge we knew it was the perfect place for us! I think we got the very last date available in August (we booked about 6 months out - they are very popular!) so it was meant to be! During our trip out to see the venue, we had Brunch and did a wine tasting before our official site visit. It was love at first site. All of the employees were so nice and attentive, the space and views are beyond imaginable, the food was fantastic and their banquet hall is perfect with huge windows, garage doors that open to the outside, built in dance floor and bar!

    We did all of our catering through the venue and Ashton helped me customize my Iowa themed menu - after all, this was a destination wedding for a lot of our guests! Ashton was wonderful during the entire process, easy to work with, listening to my ideas and making suggestions. She is truly a huge asset to the wedding team - helping me plan all of my details and make sure they came to reality on the day of the event!

    Our ceremony was out on their patio which sets up perfectly for small ceremonies (we had 100 chairs set-up for 90 guests) with a natural semicircle set-up and the most gorgeous backdrop of the vineyard. We put a bar outside and had food for the cocktail hour in their tasting room and then moved into the banquet room for dinner and dancing. We kept the garage doors closed during dinner, but opened them up in the evening and even had a fire-pit outside. The food, venue, staff, everything was absolutely wonderful. And we loved having all of the Wine and Spirits be Cedar Ridge products! My husband and I are huge whiskey fans so this was our favorite part of the venue :) We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful place to get married! We look forward to returning whenever we are in town!
