Most magical wedding ever at SFV

Saltwater Farm Vineyard is simply the best! The venue is absolutely breathtaking, from the florals to the grape vines, to the gorgeous wooden doors, to the bright and airy bridal suite overlooking the grounds. We had about ~120 people at our wedding and it was very comfortable inside and we still had a large, fun dance floor. We could have used the upstairs space, too, if we had more people but didn’t end up needing it. The patio with an included white tent was perfect for cocktail hour. We had lights installed by Dawson Entertainment for the event space inside and out and it gave a magical look to it. Beyond the look of the venue, the wine is delicious—especially big fan of the pinot noir rosé. The staff at SFV is amazing and makes you feel like family every time you walk in. It was great working with Merrily and Jessica, both of whom are incredibly sweet, responsive, and helpful with whatever we needed leading up to the wedding and during the event. If we had to do it again, we would get married at Saltwater over and over!

Absolutely incredible

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Saltwater Farm Vineyard on May 29, 2022, and we could not have picked a better venue. Saltwater is gorgeous and the vendors that Merrily and Michael (the owners) have curated over the years are truly fantastic. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather and our guests (150 in total, which was a good size for the venue) thoroughly enjoyed viewing the grounds and sampling the wine during our cocktail hour. We are grateful to Saltwater for hosting our special day. We were, unfortunately, the first couple at the venue that had to postpone our wedding day (originally set for April 25, 2020) due to the pandemic. Saltwater was generous and patient with us and we are so grateful to them for working with us over two years to safely finalize a date. Throughout this process, it was always a delight to see Merrily, Michael, and Jess. They were thoroughly professional and helpful each step of the way. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for and we will be back to visit Saltwater as much as we can. It is a truly special place

The Best Wedding Venue

We adore Saltwater Farm Vineyard. The vineyard itself is absolutely stunning and is a picturesque setting for a wedding. The owners and staff are beyond friendly and helpful, and treat you like a member of the family. Everything about this venue was perfect for us - from the open and spacious reception area, to cocktail hour on the gorgeous tented patio. Our wedding party was impressed by the bridal suite, complete with full kitchen and full bathroom, plus ample natural light for pictures. We also loved that the vineyard closes completely for your wedding, which is very rare for a vineyard. From our first visit, it was clear that Saltwater Farm checked all of our boxes, and we didn't even consider another venue. We could not recommend Saltwater Farm more - Merrily and Michael have an amazing vineyard, and they and their entire staff will treat you like family every single time you visit.
