VINE APPEAL part 1: WINTER

Screen Shot 2016-04-03 at 11.13.27 AM

Although Saltwater Farm takes the winter off from pouring wine, weekends during the off-season are often spent sharing our space with couples who are seeking a venue for their big day. While the indoor space remains the same season to season, the vineyard changes quite a bit over the course of the year. Starting with our quietest wedding season, winter, we will take a look at our beautiful backyard thru the seasons.

Winter

Although we do not do many winter weddings, they do have a distinctive look and feel. Most notably, bare vines, lots of night sky (it gets dark so much earlier this time of year), the possibility of snowflakes and, of course, a great opportunity to wear fur!

Its not often but we do occasionally have a little snow on the vines as backdrop for our brides and grooms. Just check out these photos from Alana and Andre’s wedding a few winters back.

Liza and Chris’s wedding is a perfect example of our indoor space being able to seamlessly accommodate the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all indoors.

Early Spring

Thinking of waiting until early spring to tie the knot? Keep in mind that while the grass gets greener and the world is “coming to life” in late March and April it isn’t until the middle of May that the vines show signs of growth. Check out these two picture perfect April weddings.

A mostly cloudy April afternoon was mild enough for a fun outdoor photo op (check out their antique whip).
