Beautiful Venue

Slate & Cypress was my absolute dream venue, after touring the venue we decided almost instantly on the venue and didn’t visit any others. Slate & Cypress is such a beautiful venue, some of our guests even said it felt like we were out of the country! Andrew and Olga were so helpful on our big day and even left us with a sweet gift. I would choose Slate & Cypress over and over again!

Most Memorable Event

It’s hard to describe what will be one of the most memorable events in our lives. My daughter had the wedding of her dreams at Slate & Cypress. Andrew and Olya made every effort to accommodate us in every way to make it the most special day for them. They were always quick to respond, making communication simple. All aspects of the contract were clearly explained, and the timeline / due dates were easy to follow. We held our reception in the stunning, tastefully designed winery inspired venue hall. The hall was large enough to accommodate our 150 guests, the DJ and dance floor, the dinner buffet and the bar area. For their ceremony, they were married outside on part of the 5 acres there. We used the old heritage tobacco barn to host their cocktail hour and it was a perfect place to have guests wait while having appetizers and cocktails. Our friends and family have raved for weeks about how incredible everything was, saying it was the perfect mix of class and unpretentiousness. I cannot recommend this venue, Andrew & Olya, enough. A million thanks to Andrew and Olya for giving us an unbelievable day, and memories we will cherish for a lifetime.
