This is what dreams are made of. Simply the best.
What we received from Mount Fair Vineyard was, first off, the most endearing, engaging, kind, enthusiastic and supportive point of contact in Elaine that we could have imagined (scratch that, better than anyone we could have imagined). She was on top of every aspect of the process, and just a true pleasure to work with. Secondly, the owner, John, took us on our tour himself. He was kind, humble, easy-going and good natured. So much so that, after we decided the same day of our tour on booking the venue, he drove back to the venue to meet us with two bottles of wine, two jars of homemade honey from their apiary and two hardcover coffee table books about Mount Fair as a thank you. Remember, this is just the beginning of our booking process. When we had our wedding walk through and the wedding weekend itself, we were introduced to Mike, the property manager, who was a phenomenal onsite contact to have throughout the weekend. Mike was engaged, helpful and, in true Mount Fair fashion, on top of every aspect of preparing the property for the wedding. The morning of my wedding, I got to spend some time with Mike and he showed me around the property. That’s a guy you’d want to have a beer with for sure.
On top of all of this, when we booked the venue, we got it for the ENTIRE weekend. This meant setup could begin much earlier and it allowed the entire planning process onsite to be so much less stressful. No other weddings to be worried about. No other people to be worried about. An important point to call out about Mount Fair Vineyard is the simplified logistical experience that their property empowers. There’s a main house for the bride’s family to stay along with a small cottage on the other side of the property for the married couple the night of (or any other use). They have both an indoor and outdoor riding arena that can be transformed for any ideas you may have, a beautiful garden with a mini-greenhouse in the middle (we used this for cocktail hour and it was a HUGE hit), a log-cabin-style winery (which we used for our rehearsal dinner), and endless fields of beautiful grass overlooking the mountains that can be used for parking, tent setup, ceremony locations, etc. It’s an almost overwhelming amount of space that essentially serves as a blank, beautiful canvas on which to build your dream wedding. And I can’t stress enough how convenient it is to have a wedding venue where the entire bridal party can all get ready onsite (with the bride far away from the groom if you want), where the ceremony can take place, where attendees can walk 1min to the cocktail hour and then another 30 seconds to the reception, and where busses can easily drop off and park onsite, out of site.
I hit the character limit for this review so I had to cut a lot out. Read the full review on Google or WeddingWire, but I truly cannot express how incredible this venue is. They foster a culture of love, nature and beauty here. And you can tell they’re in it for the right reasons. There’s endless space, expansive mountain views, beautiful nighttime skies with no light pollution to corrupt your view of the stars. You just feel at peace here. I can definitively say that my wife and I will be returning to stay (when there aren’t weddings of course) just to try and re-live it again 😊
Thank you to Elaine, John, Mike and the entire Mount Fair Vineyard team for making the biggest weekend of our lives the best weekend of our lives.
