We are very pleased and loved every bit of our wedding at the Williamsburg Winery. The staff was very responsive from my first email inquiry up until the day of. They were there each step and helped to make our vision come to life. They provide a point person for the all your planning and then the day of to help things run smoothly. They were organized and everything was included in the price which made planning that much easier. This included tables, linens, plates, silverware, cake cutting, staff, etc. They have a large menu to choose from and large variety of wine and beer and happy to bring in additional options. We were able to attend a wine tasting and food tasting beforehand to select the menu which was wonderful and helpful in being able to sample everything.
The staff the day of was attentive, bar ran quickly and smoothly, and everyone was respectful and kind. Things were constantly being cleaned and reset and everyone really seemed to want to make things perfect for us. Our guests commented how nice and organized things were.
The space itself is beautiful and requires little additional decorating. We loved the lawn for the ceremony and were equally impressed with the backup plan for rain. We liked that there was a separate spaces for the cocktail hour and reception. Additionally, lots of beautiful locations throughout the grounds for pictures. Everyone raved about the venue and how beautiful everything was.
Additionally, the entire bridal party stayed on the grounds at the Wedmore Place which made things so easy and convenient. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very accommodating. Each room is unique and the bride and groom suite made the perfect location for the bridal party to get ready in. It was nice to have everyone there together and walk back after the event.
We highly recommend the winery for your special day. Everything was perfect and we are grateful for the staff for helping it all come together especially Kari Scruggs!

My husband and I could not be happier with the venue, the staff, and the on-site hotel, Wedmore Place.
The venue’s pricing structure is straightforward, with no hidden charges and the venue fee included candles, string globe lights, tables, chairs, china, drinkware and our choice of linen colors. The food and beverage options and cost will vary based on the couple’s taste and budget - the venue will work with you to get it right. We were able to choose add-ons to make our day special and unique, including a wine tasting for our guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour. As an added bonus, the Winery offers a military discount on the space rental fee.
Kari, the Winery’s event coordinator, was absolutely fantastic from the day we met her through our Wedding day. She worked with us to make a custom wedding weekend that was truly us! As our wedding day was approaching, she was extremely accommodating and reassuring… we knew that our big day was in the best hands possible!
The Manager on Duty for the rehearsal dinner and wedding day, Chase, was just as amazing, tending to our every need and making sure our last-minute requests were completed with ease. The entire day of staff was extremely welcoming and gracious, they made us feel like the king and queen of the castle and then some!
The onsite hotel, Wedmore Place, offered extremely comfortable, elegant, and convenient overnight accommodations for our wedding party and closest family. The hotel staff went above and beyond to work with us in attending to our guests’ needs.
All in all, the Williamsburg Winery is a fantastic venue in and of itself, and the staff there make it a perfect place for the biggest day of your life! We can’t recommend it enough.
