This venue is absolutely beautiful inside and out!! It is a such an awesome space. It's close to the Renaissance Faire, but yet far enough away to feel like a separate place. Nicole was awesome and such a pleasure to work with. She was super flexible and helpful and answered all of our questions. She really wanted to make sure our wedding day was perfect and everything we wanted. We got so many compliments from our guests about how awesome and beautiful our venue was and how good the food and drinks were too! Our guests enjoyed our day here just as much as we did. I would highly recommend Mt Hope Estate & Winery to any couple looking for an incredible wedding venue!Sent on 10/24/2020
Mount Hope Estate & Winery's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Stef! We are thrilled you and Greg decided to celebrate at Mount Hope - we loved being a part of it all!
