    Amazing Venue and staff

    My daughter was married at Upper Shirley Vineyards on 9/5/21. It was the first venue she and her now husband visited and they fell in love with the venue. Due to the pandemic, they had to reschedule their wedding 3 times. The venue was incredibly accommodating. The venue is incredibly beautiful and serene with views of the river. The onsite event coordinator, Catherine Cristman is outstanding as is her team and the entire staff of Upper Shirley. The food was delicious with the menu offerings including both traditional southern fare as well as fusion inspired. The day of the wedding, the staff provided a delicious breakfast and lunch in the bridal and groom suites and were incredibly attentive to the wedding party's needs. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so many commented that this was the most lovely wedding they had ever attended. I highly recommend Upper Shirley Vineyards for your wedding.
