My fiance and I have been wine club members here for three years and got married here on 05-18-19 and I highly recommend them as a wedding venue.Sent on 07/02/2019
As a wedding venue, Scribner Bend exceeded our expectations. We chose them initially because they are close to downtown Sacramento (easy access for all of our friends and family), they have reasonable prices compared to other venues in the region, they have always made us feel like family, the wine is wonderful, and the venue is just gorgeous. It was also a bonus that their exclusive caterer is Paesanos - which just so happens to be our favorite Sacramento restaurant.
Jessica helped make everything run smoothly from the planning stage through execution, and even with last minute changes she was calm and professional and everything went off without a hitch.
The day of our wedding we had to contend with a freak rainstorm (and I mean downpours all day), and my dream of an outdoor garden wedding was crushed (after all, one of the reasons I chose this place was because of the beautiful gardens and vineyards). However, Scribner had a backup plan and we ended up having the ceremony in the barrel room, cocktail hour in the tasting room, and moved the entire reception under the tent in the courtyard. I was amazed at how gorgeous the barrel room ceremony turned out and I had several people mention how they could not believe that was our BACK UP plan... in fact I might even have loved the barrel room more than the chardonnay garden! Moving the ceremony into the cocktail hour space and into the reception area seemed to go smoothly, and Jessica was even able to find some extra umbrellas for guests to use. In spite of the rain, we had a wonderful wedding, our guests had an amazing time, and we got some great pictures. Our guests raved about how pretty the venue was, how great the bartenders were, and how delicious the food was.
I also have to mention that I love that they have the bungalow on site for the bridal party to get ready in - that made the day go very smoothly and there is plenty of room for people to spread out and enjoy themselves. I just wish that the bride and groom were able to stay there overnight!
My wedding is a testimony to the fact that even in torrential downpours - you can have an amazing wedding at Scribner! :)

My husband and I held our wedding here at Scribner on September 29, 2018 and we could not have been more pleased. The professionalism of the staff from our very first visit and tour, to the many emails along the way, made us feel cared for like family. Every detail was carefully considered both in the planning and the day of. We love all the different locations around the property, and renting the bridal bungalow is a must! The menu we chose from Paesano's was incredible, the quick lines at the bars and the timing of our evening, along with the picturesque landscape are just a few reasons why we are constantly getting compliments from our guests. Over the months leading up to our wedding, we stopped in often to enjoy events such as the Chili Cook Off, and eventually became wine club members. We brought our families and friends to the winery for lunch many times and look forward to our first visit back as a married couple. Scribner Bend Vineyards was everything that we needed and wanted for our wedding, and so much more!Sent on 11/25/2018

September wedding at SBV
The weekend after we were engaged Jacie and I began looking for our dream venue. We wanted a barn, a big white tent, and a few vines to get the perfect photo nestled among the vineyard. I knew I would have to sacrifice at least one, right? Wrong! Little did we know that we would get all three and more! We booked three tours of venues in the greater Sacramento and Scribner Bend Vineyard was the first and only stop. When we walked on site, we looked at each other and just knew, this was where we would tie the knot! SBV was an absolute dream come true! Not only did they exceed all of our dreams and expectations, the whole staff was AMAZING! Jessica was so helpful and attentive with all of our questions and the staff on the day of took care of everything the wedding party, vendors, and guests needed. We could not have planned our dream wedding without Jessica and the staff at SBV, Jacie and I were both in grad school and all of our guests lived over 150 miles away. Jessica coordinated everything, and made the planning process a breeze! WE LOVE SBV and it is an added plus that we get to stop by the vineyard on weekends for good food and a glass of wine!Sent on 12/29/2018

My wife and I chose Scribner Bend for our Wedding, and it was a great decision.Sent on 07/03/2018
Jessica, our coordinator, was always on top of things during this whole process, which we started 18 months before the big day. She guided us through many logistics that we just did not think to address, as we counted on her to be the professional. She was definetly the expert, and answered all our questions if we didn't understand something.
Scriber has just an excellent venue for a wedding, and we would do it there again. It got a little cold on some of my guests because of the delta breeze, even in May, so if your considering doing it there I would tell guests to be prepared. Otherwise, Scribner provided us with some heaters and the fireplace as well.
I highly recommend this beautiful winery for a wedding and day you will remember forever.
Thank you Scribner Bend!

As an out-of-town couple planning our wedding 400 miles away, we wanted to book a venue in our hometown of Sacramento as soon as we got engaged. Upon visiting SBV, meeting with the coordinator, and touring the grounds, it was a no-brainer for my husband(!) and I.Sent on 08/22/2017
Our 7/1/17 wedding was beyond perfection!! My bridesmaids and I rented the Bungalow on the property for the day which was perfect to get ready in, and the whole venue was a great backdrop for the day. We had our ceremony among the vines in the Chardonnay garden, our cocktail hour on the newly renovated back patio, and our reception under the tent...it was super convenient having everything in one location!
The grounds are gorgeous, the wine was fantastic, and the staff was amazing. We are so happy we chose Scribner Bend for our big day!
Betsy · Married on 06/30/2017
I absolutely LOVE Scribner Bend! We are wine club members, and the venue has such a special feeling when you step out of the car, you almost forget you are in Sacramento. It is so incredibly beautiful, it is exactly what I wanted for our wedding. We hosted our wedding there on 6/30/17. Our coordinator, Jessica, was on top of everything all night long. Minor hiccups (like our seating chart sign falling and breaking) went unnoticed by me (the bride), because the Scribner team found a glue gun and glued it all back together before I even walked down the aisle. Everything the entire night was perfect, from the white peacock sitting on top of the barn above the dance floor, to the bartenders dancing in the bar and having fun with our guests. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place for their weddingSent on 07/11/2017

I can't express enough how WONDERFUL EVERYONE at Scribner Bend was! I worked with both Karen and Kelley and they were both fantastic! The venue is beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to marry the man of my dreams. I have two kids and the youngest one is a chatter box and enjoys being entertained! Karen and Kelley were so sweet and kind to him and kept him entertained by letting him collect walnuts! The day after our wedding he told his dad and I that he wanted to get married at Scribner because he loved their walnuts...lol They were so great at coordinating everything and making sure all of my vendors were on the same page. I didn't know it but it turned out my cake was late in getting delivered. THAT'S how great they are....they handled and took care of everything themselves! Their wine selection is amazing also. I received so many compliments on how gorgeous and beautiful the venue was. I would recommend Scribner Bend to anyone in a heart beat! Thank you to EVERYONE at Scribner Bend for being their on our special day!Sent on 10/29/2014

We fell in love with the site as soon as we came to check it out. Based on the helpfulness of the staff, the beauty of the site, and the professionalism of the coordinator, we made the choice then and there (not normal for us) to have our ceremony there. We even paid in full right then!!Sent on 04/26/2014
For the wedding, it was the perfect day! Everything went seamlessly from set-up to take-down and everything In between. We had no worries, Scribner Bend made our Wedding Day exactly right!

IMPRESSED... I think that is the best word to describe how I feel about you all. I cannot say thank you enough for making our wedding day the most wonderful day of all!! From our first meeting, to every time we stopped off to taste wine or drop off a check, to the rehearsal, to the day of....everything was wonderful. Your venue is so beautiful and everyone there makes it all the better. You have been so kind, calm and patient, and have made us feel like a part of the family and we love that. On the wedding day, we were so well taken care of you'd of thought we were your only wedding this year. You were always there to help us throughout the whole planning process, and you were so so wonderful the entire day of the wedding. We were in good hands all throughout. All our our guests felt at home and cannot stop complimenting on the beautiful venue we chose to get married at. I could go on and on. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. We are over the moon and we are happy to be a part of your Scribner Family. The KaufmansSent on 11/05/2012

We could not have asked for a better experience than what we had with Scribner Bend and their wedding coordinator, Mairi. Our 180-guest outdoor wedding turned out exactly how we imagined and we couldn’t have been happier! The location is beautiful and we purchased the Dream Package, which made wedding planning much simpler. The package turned out to be a great deal considering it covers everything you need and all their vendors are great to work with – flexible, professional and top notch! All our vendors helped us create the atmosphere we wanted - fun, casual and colorful. Mairi coordinated all of them the day of and we didn’t have to worry about anything. We highly recommend Scribner Bend if you’re looking for an outdoor, beautiful location and great service!Sent on 07/04/2011

I had a fabulous time with the staff of Scribner Bend Vineyards. They really do care about everything and making sure that your Special day is truly spectacular. I still feel this way even after the rain hit us on our wedding day. We were definitely in good hands. Scribner Bend had Plan B ready for me and I trusted everything would be perfect. and then.. it WAS!!Sent on 06/20/2011
Mairi is such a wonderful women that has taken care of every bride. she make the ride and wedding planning very smooth, comfortable for every bride. I would love to have more events to come at Scribner. I enjoyed observing the excellent attention to detail and professional and friendly work ethic they had. THERE IS A VERY POWERFUL VIBE OF ENERGY AND SCRIBNER... We were very happy.

I can still remember the first time I called Scribner Bend Vineyard and spoke with Mairi. We had many questions as most newly engaged couples would. Mairi was able to answer all of our questions and was very confident and reassuring. My fiancé and I set up an appointment for us to view the venue. Scribner Bend Vineyard was the first venue that we visited and we both fell in love with it instantly. Even though we knew this would be the place we would have our wedding, we felt that we needed to view the other venues on our list just to reinforce we were making the right decision. After visiting the other venues, there was no comparison. It only confirmed that Scribner Bend Vineyard was the perfect venue for our wedding.Sent on 01/12/2011
From the beginning to the end, Mairi was always there for us. She was extremely easy to work with and very reassuring and confidant every time we spoke. Which is just what any bride needs! Mairi is very personal and makes you feel like you are the only bride and groom she is working with. Although, we were very impressed that every time she spoke about another bride and groom, she always referred to them by name.
My fiancé and I chose the Dream Wedding Package at Scribner Bend Vineyard and were the first to have our wedding using this package. We were very happy with all of the vendors offered in the package. We both believe we definitely benefited from having all of the top vendors offered in the package. Since all of the vendors are very familiar with the venue, they were able to assist us in making sure that we were making the right choices to achieve our dream wedding.
On the day of our wedding, Mairi was right there every step of the way ensuring that no detail was forgotten. Mairi takes great pride in her work and it shows. She is absolutely amazing and any bride and groom would be lucky to work with such an exceptional lady. Scribner Bend Vineyard is absolutely beautiful and we would recommend it to anyone that asked.
Thanks for making our wedding day dreams come true!

Words cannot express how happy we are that we got married at Scribner Bend Vineyards. Our journey began when we were looking for our dream wedding venue. My new husband and I went to Scribner Bend after looking at 30 other wedding venues. The moment that we arrived at Scribner Bend we fell in love with the vineyard. The venue was beautiful and very intimate. As we were leaving we met Mr. Scribner and he showed us around the venue and was so warm and welcoming. My husband and I booked Scribner Bend that following week almost two years before our actual wedding date. Throughout the wedding planning process we got to work with Mari who was absolutely amazing. Mari was so knowledgeable, and was very supportive. On our special day, Mark, Loraine and Mari were angels. We cannot thank them enough for all of the support and love they showed us on our big day. Our wedding day was perfect and our guest walked away raving about the venue and our wedding. All of the staff at Scribner Bend was professional, attentive and timely. Several of my friends loved our wedding so much they are asking our permission to get married there. My husband and I did not have to worry about anything on our big day! Everything went so smoothly and every time we turned around Mari had already taken care of everything. I would have paid more money to get married there that is how happy we are with the service we received. Thank you to the Scribner Bend family for going above and beyond on our special day. God really put great people around us on our wedding day and we are forever grateful!Sent on 01/06/2011

Scribner Bend Vineyard is a beautiful venue with a fantastic staff. The vineyards surrounded us and our guests for ceremony and reception making the ambience feel comfortable and warm. They allow tents at the venue which we had that adds even more character to the venue. With the linen swooping across the top and chandeliers hanging added a romantic and elegant feeling during the reception. Mairi, the wedding coordinator, as well as the staff, did everything possible to our wedding a flawless, easy flowing, and gorgous evening. Our wedding was absolutely perfect!

Mairi absolutely made the wedding come together and took care of details behind the scenes, i cannot thank her more! the winery owners were very friendly and have a beautiful property, everyone at the wedding raved about the location and the wines! We looked at about 20 wineries within 1 1/2 hours of downtown sacramento, and had almost given up until we saw Scribner Bend, it was everything we wanted and couldnt be happier with our choice.Sent on 10/28/2008

From the day I first visited the Scribner Bend Winery, to when Mark and Lorraine Scribner congratulated us with a heartfelt hug on we could have never pictured a more perfect wedding experience.Sent on 10/31/2008
Every moment of our wedding, the planning, the toasting of our "I do's", the last guest walking off the grounds- Scribner Bend Winery took such wonderful care of us. When I first walked onto the grounds of Scribner Bend, I knew that was the place I wanted to share my vows. I was so excited to find out my husband agreed! There was some special history there, we could tell. It was a place we could spend the evening celebrating with love, warmth, and our families. Jeremy and I couldn't have asked for anything more of the family of Scribner Bend Winery. They opened their doors and helped make our wedding day the most beautiful moment we could have ever imagined.
Even now, when we visit the winery, we are always met with a smile and a hug. Mark and Lorraine invite us to events throughout the year and still make us feel like family, 6 months later. We could not have picked a better place to have our wedding.

My wife and I wanted the perfect representation of us and our Rustic Romantic theme for our wedding day. We visited a few venues but fell in love with Scribner as soon as we walked into the garden. It was everything we were looking for. From the open garden ceremony space with blooming white Rose's, to the outside open cocktail area, the unbelievable reception space under the lighted tent, and beautiful barn backdrop for the dance floor and bar. From the moment I arrived to the bungalow at SBV, I was relaxed and the staff on site made sure I not only had everything I needed but they continued to check on me and make sure I knew everything was going as planned. Some staff even ran around grabbing vendors for me as I needed them. Our on-site event coordinators made sure to keep me hidden from my wife until my grand entrance. Even with the unexpected winds, the staff didn’t get bewildered they just adjusted things and kept going. We were able to utilize the preferred vendors of SBV’s and after working with them we see why they are preferred vendors, they carry the same high standards of customer service and compassion for the soon to be married couple as Scribner does. From the very first email exchange with Jessica to the day after our wedding, Jessica stayed focused on our details while reassuring us that it was going to be perfect. Scribner Bend made our wedding day easy, relaxed and picture perfect exactly the way we both imagined and wanted it to be. Huge heart felt thank you to the entire staff on scene and behind the scenes at SBV!Sent on 08/01/2018

This place is BEAUTIFUL and the people who run it are so kind and great to work with. For an intimate, gorgeous wedding I would totally recommend this place. Their current website is so-so without a lot of flair, but once you visit and see it you will fall in love. At night they offer special uplighting and it really adds to the ambiance of the place. Something nice about Scribner Bend is that it's on the Delta, so during the heat of summer there is a really nice breeze. We got married in mid-August at 6pm and it was really comfortable. The bridal getting-ready area is gorgeous for pictures, and we had a lot of great photo-ops around the vineyard. We loved it and our guests keep telling us how intimate and special it was.Sent on 10/27/2007

We absolutely loved our Scribner Bend wedding. We received so many compliments! The venue is beautiful so it doesn't need much in terms of decorating. The staff is incredible.
