I can't say enough about Grafton Winery The Vineyards... This place has it all with beautiful views of a lake, the Vineyards, the beautiful huge outdoor patio with twinkle lights. I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. It definitely was my dream wedding and so much more! All of my guests were just as impressed. Don't think twice about it, this location is beyond the best wedding location I have found in the area and I DID a lot of research! You will fall in love once you see it! I surely did!Sent on 09/14/2017

Team of Grafton Winery The Vineyards
After spending the last 6 years commuting to St. Louis for her career in Event Planning, Bailey was thrilled to jump at the opportunity to work closer to her home, and become the Event Director at Grafton Winery.
"I have always loved Grafton, because it has magic and charm that you can't get everywhere else. Our venue is a place that you can enjoy all year long and not just on your wedding day!"
Her favorite part of being an Event Director is getting to know the client during the planning process, and help make each event special. The day-of the event, they are more like her friends than her cleints. If you want a tour or to chat more about weddings and events, please dont be a stranger!
