After an exhaustive evaluation process of possible venues for our wedding, we chose Thomas Fogarty Winery for a number of reasons: Beauty, facilities that met all of our needs (particularly the ability to have the wedding and reception indoors OR outdoors, a very important consideration given our Fall wedding date), super helpful events people including ALL on the staff from the events people to the people in the tasting room (including Tom, Jr. himself).
I mentioned the ability to have the festivities inside or outside... and as it turn out, it drizzled very heavily on our 4pm ceremony but didn't dampen - pardon the unintended pun - the spirit and vibe of the entire event! We also found out later that because of the dampness, the Fogarty staff, along with our unbelievably great caterer - a Fogarty recommended vendor - moved all of our guest services like our place cards and other key aspects of our reception/dinner inside to keep them dry! That was initiative that exceeded expectations!
If asked to rate the "value" of the venue, my initial, gut reaction would be to say "it wasn't inexpensive" looking at our bank account. (I laugh as I write this.) However, in really thinking about it and holding to the true definition of the word VALUE; that is, "...the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something", we think they provided EXCELLENT VALUE! We could have spent less at another venue, but having all of the things that we wanted in a venue all there in one place and having the entire event come together as it did with absolutely NO intervention on our part at any time was the most valuable thing for us!
To net it all out (and it sounds bad to say this but in context it makes sense): "If we had to do it all over again, there'd be NO OTHER VENUE we'd even consider."
