We cannot express how happy with how our Sanctuary Vineyards wedding turned out this October 2017. Christine, John, and Elton were AMAZING to work with. They were so flexible, and did everything they could to make our day go perfect. They really know what they are doing when it comes to weddings. Christine was very easy to access and her correspondences via email were always very quick and professional. We were able to communicate from a state away to ensure we had everything we needed to make our day exactly what we imagined. From the time we were engaged, we felt nothing but love and acceptance from Elton and John. As we saw them at the winery throughout our year + long engagement, they always welcomed us with open arms, and made us feel like family. On the day of the wedding, it rained, so we had to turn to plan B and move the wedding inside. Let me tell you, I was super bummed, as I was so excited to get married in the beautiful vineyard. But, Christine and her team, along with my wedding planners, were able to make the wine room the most BEAUTIFUL plan B I have ever seen. All my guests couldn't believe that I would want to have the ceremony take place anywhere else but inside the wine room with the barrels as the backdrop. They made the what would have been frantic plan B situation seamless and beautiful. We cannot say enough great things about this winery and their wedding services. Christine and her team are top notch. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!Sent on 11/14/2017

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.Sent on 07/28/2019
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!

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
