    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.

    Unparalleled wedding experience

    Our wedding at Saltwater was an absolute dream! Michael and Merrily are so easy to work with and extremely responsive and attentive. I loved Saltwater from the first time we visited for a wine tasting and fell in love even more when we visited for a wedding tour. The space is so romantic and visually stunning. The bridal suite is the perfect space to get ready for the day with tons of natural light and a spectacular view of the vineyard. Our ceremony and pictures among the vines was magical, cocktail hour was perfect, and the space transformed into the most beautiful dining room and dance floor. The staff was wonderful throughout the day and it was so easy to coordinate dropping off and picking up our decorations. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day and will be visiting for years to come!
