Romantic, rustic, family oriented - we could not have picked a better venue
From the moment we came to visit in January 2018, we knew immediately that Sanctuary would be our venue and a very special place to us. Christine, the events manager, made us feel right at home and assured that we'd be working with a venue and a point of contact that really cares. Elton, the tasting room manager, walked us through tastings and we talked to him for a couple of hours that day. We met the owner John, and it just felt like we were a part of the family already.
We had both our ceremony and reception at Sanctuary -- a smaller wedding of 75 people. The ceremony was in the field in front of the vineyard, an incredibly picturesque location. The reception space is so romantic with the soft lighting and the wine barrels and tanks, it was everything I had pictured in my mind and more. The vineyard is a family owned farm - so it provided many different locations and scenes for photos.
Christine and John were awesome to work with - organized but also flexible, laid-back and willing to let us do pretty much whatever we want to do with the space. The space (both inside and outside) was so naturally beautiful- we didn't have to do a lot. The value for this venue is really amazing, it includes tables, chairs, linens, etc. There are no hidden fees or unexpected costs you get at other venues. We brought in our own beer and paid for the wine that was opened during the event. The wines were so good, we actually bought an additional 5 cases to give each of our guests a bottle in their welcome bags to take home with them.
We really felt like we were a part of the Sanctuary family and cannot thank them enough for making our day so special!Sent on 07/28/2019

So simple, yet so beautiful!!!
Sanctuary Vineyards was the absolute perfect fit for my husband and I to have our wedding. It fit our personalities so perfectly from the rustic barrels and lights to the outside reception. Christine, Elton, and the rest of the staff made it so incredibly easy and stress free to plan a wedding from far away. Our wedding had the chance of being inside due to the weather and Christine was there for every step of the way assuring me it could easily be taken inside or set up outside in the drop of a hat. She had a beautiful arbor and doors that we used during the ceremony. I can't rave enough about how easy the process was with them! Gorgeous ceremony space and wonderful areas for pictures. Highly recommend the hayride given the ceremony is a good distance walking wise from the reception space. The tractor driver was phenomenal and accommodating when our photographer asked to stop for photo ops. I can't thank this venue enough for giving us the perfect space for our wedding!!!Sent on 10/29/2018

We had such a blast hosting our wedding reception at Sanctuary Vineyards! We had some ideas about using the space in a way that was a little unconventional, and Christine was super receptive to us making it our own. We had around 180 guests, and were able to utilize the barrel room and the covered outdoor area in a way that didn't feel crammed at all. So many of our guests remarked about how unique the vibe of this venue is (and how good the wine was!). It's elegant without being uptight, and it's really not too far of a trek from where most of our family and friends were staying on the beach. It's was also incredibly helpful for some of the vendors to be able to set up the day before - our vendors remarked about how thankful they were for that bonus! Also love the fact that the space is owned and run by a family that's had deep roots in the area for generations - very rad history here! Thanks so much Sanctuary!Sent on 07/23/2018
