What makes your venue unique?

We love the fact that couples can have a beautiful wedding either inside or outside at Early Mountain Vineyards. Our views of the mountains and vines create a stunning backdrop for all outdoor activities, from first look photos to walking down the aisle. Our indoor space is equally as beautiful and is sure to add charm to any setting! Our elegant and warm Event Hall sets the stage for a breathtaking ceremony and reception!

Best piece of planning advice to a new bride

Pinterest is your best friend, until it’s not! It’s a great tool for getting ideas for your dream wedding, but make sure you log off once you begin nailing down your details. You want to make sure your personality shines through on your wedding day!

Also, please do not stress yourself out over rain or clouds on your wedding day. Remember what this day is all about – you’re getting married! This is also why you chose a venue with a great back-up plan. It’s just not worth worrying about, and cloudy days actually make for better pictures!

What is your ideal couple like?

We love couples that get excited about making their big day the most special of their lives. We love your families and loved ones, but it’s important to us that we get to know the couples themselves and find out what’s most important to them when it comes to their wedding day. Planning a wedding is a big deal, but it’s also fun! We love couples that don’t take themselves (or planning) too seriously and remember to have a little fun along the way!
