    A Dream Venue!

    My husband and I got married at Upper Shirley Vineyards on 11/3/2018 and to say it was a dream is an understatement. From the first time we went to this vineyard (only a few weeks after they opened) we knew we wanted to get married here one day. In fact, we booked so far in advance that we were there second contract ever signed. From the very beginning USV was nothing short of magnificent to work with. This place really does it all - food, drink, rentals, ceremony site, multiple rain plans offered, and unlimited options to customize the day to make it yours. The bridal suite was beautiful and the perfect space for me and my 8 bridesmaids (+moms) to spend the morning and the grooms den was a fun space with games, tv, and couches for my husband's groomsmen. Catherine (their director of events) is a dream! She cares so, so much about her couples and about working with you to make your vision come to life. I can honestly say not a single stressor came out of this place and they only relieved any stress we ever felt. We cannot recommend Upper Shirley any higher. Get married here, have dinner here, drink wine here, lay on the lawn here. We're already dreaming of how we could possibly have a 10-year anniversary party here one day!

    We had our wedding at Upper Shirley Vineyards on 8/25 and everything about it was perfect. When looking for venues we wanted an outdoor wedding and the scenery here is unbeatable, and we lucked out with having great weather on our day, but another thing that sold us on the venue was the backup plan to use their huge front porch for the ceremony in the event we weren't able to have it by the river. Catherine was amazing to work with, she was very easy to get a hold of to setup tours and tastings and she checked-in with us multiple times leading up to the wedding to see how our planning was going. We also really liked how Upper Shirley Vineyards is a one-stop shop for the venue and catering, their food is phenomenal and made it so much easier to just have one vendor to work with for those. The staff that worked the wedding also did a fantastic job, the reception ran very smooth and flawless. All of our guests had a blast and we definitely recommend this wedding venue!
