Thinking of an intimate ceremony with just your lover and maybe one or two of your closest friends?
Your ceremony will be conducted on your own Vineyard Cottage patio, a champagne cork’s flight above the vines. An Arrival Bouquet of fresh seasonal flowers will welcome you to this special interlude. On the day of the ceremony the minister and photographer will arrive with your wedding bouquet, boutonniere, flower topped cake, champagne for toasting, and can even stand in as your witness if needed. Our minister has a civil or non-denominational ceremony to choose from, or you can write your own vows. After the vows, you will enjoy the cake cutting and champagne toast by popping the cork into the vineyards.
You will then be invited to walk the lush grounds of the Inn to take even more photos to commemorate the day. Your photographer then creates a beautiful custom wedding album from select images of your special day. All of the approximately 40 – 60 photos are also provided online for reorders and enlargements. These are the beautiful images which will bring back the memories of your special day for years to come.
Then, without a drive to the airport and a five-hour flight to wherever, your honeymoon has begun. Our knowledgeable staff can help you arrange special dinners, spa treatments, balloon rides, wine tasting, estate tours, or you can just hang out by our pool and daydream about the wondrous new life you have just begun.
2014 Elopement Package is $3,820 plus taxes and Includes:
Our vineyard cottages book up well in advance. However, do not fear. If we are unable to book you into one of these special cottages we have two other wonderful cottages as well as an assortment of suites for you to choose from. Since the experience is not quite as grand, certain discounts may apply.
Special Flower Arrangements: Market Price.
If you would like special colors or varieties of flowers in any of the included arrangements, your wedding coordinator will do her best to arrange for special-order flowers that are fresh and in season, and to your specifications. Fortunately, she was a florist for many years, so she will be able to advise you with expertise.
Additional Guests: $60 per person.
This special ceremony is designed for you and one or two close friends. Your private cottage is not only your ceremony site but it is also where you will be dressing and honeymooning. Your package comes with enough cake and champagne for toasting for yourselves and two guests. If you have more friends that would like to attend your vows we highly recommend our Small Wedding Package. If you insist, we can accommodate a few more guests. The cost for these guests covers a larger cake, more toasting champagne and the added photography time and extra prints necessary to include these friends or family into the celebration.
Private Appetizer Reception: $15 per person, including bride and groom
Any guests of the Inn are welcome to enjoy the Evening Wine Social we host every day from 4:30 until 6:00. However, if you would like similar simple appetizers brought to your room we can do that as well. We also have a wonderful wine list you can order from with prices ranging from $18 to $50 per bottle.
Special Photography: Market Price
Our photographer is very experienced, and the Package includes a wonderful Keepsake Album with many fantastic shots. If you would like further enlargement, copies or a digital CD, or if you would like a photographer to come early or stay late, all of that can be arranged.
Please contact our Wedding Coordinator, Cindy Ivester, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Inn and ask for Cindy to give you a call. We’ll do all that we can to make your special day extra-special!
