We had our wedding at Chapin Family Vineyards in December 2014. Although, our wedding party was very small, we were treated like royalty by the Chapin Family & Staff. We live in AZ, and we could not have pulled off this destination wedding without our local allies. Our Wedding Coordinator/Ceremonial Officiant, Laura Reyes, helped keep us focused on our special day, versus stressing about arrangements - family transportation (Trolley), reception setup, helping with vows, and last minute errands. Laura even gave suggestions for photo locations we would not have considered. We are forever grateful to Steve and Tim Chapin for helping make our wedding day special - spreading tons of wood chips on our wedding march path after 48 hours of rain, & Steve pairing his wonderful wines for each meal course. When we look back on our wedding experience with Chapin Family Vineyards and Laura, we'd do it all over again in a heartbeat! -Nicole & Michelle MagnusSent on 02/23/2018
