Vineyard Weddings
The stuff of fairy tales! 

Vineyard Weddings are a beautiful alternative to other more commercial and impersonal venues.
Here is a
n elegant wedding dinner reception ready to commence at Hopewell Valley Vineyards. 

Weddings and wineries are a match made in Bride Magazine heaven. 

What could be more picturesque, romantic, and timeless than celebrating your love and union with friends and family under the backdrop of a lush vineyard?

Where grape clusters dangle from the vines...

The dotted hillsides remind you of A Midsummer’s Night Dream...

The cobblestone paths and piazza lights remind you of Europe...

And where an abundance of wine - the timeless, celebrated beverage of LOVE - is around ever corner, sleeping in every barrel, restless in every bottle, dancing in every glass under the stars?

While the imagery is undeniably romantic, don’t let it intoxicate you completely! 

At least not until you’re done walking down the aisle...

Before you reach your Shakespearean fairy tale ending, keep your feet on the ground

You’ve got to navigate through how to plan a beautiful winery wedding.

Luckily, here at Hopewell Valley Vineyards, we’ve done it all before. On BOTH sides of the planning... :-) 

Through the years we've been honored to host the special moments of many of our loyal friends and patrons...even within the Neri family, Alexandra and Reed, got married on the vineyard in the fall of 2011. It was a gorgeous day! 

And here's a beautiful testimonial from Ellie & Steve:

Dear Violetta,

Steve and I want to thank you from bottom of our hearts to yours for making our wedding turn into a beautiful fairytale. It’s something that’s worth remembering by everyone. 

Our guests are still talking about how beautiful our wedding was and how it well organized it was. Most of our guest took a lot of pictures of this beautiful winery as our wedding memorabilia.

I cant imagine this wedding would have been successful without everyone’s help from the beginning to the end. We are so grateful for all of your expertise for turning this wedding the most memorable day of our lives. Special thanks to Anne Marie who made the detailed arrangements in the middle. She also handled our million questions and annoying details with a smile. 

You have referred the greatest band, The Jung Wombats, who made the crowd loud. They made a real party time!  Chez Alice made our ceremony and reception so beautiful! Food was great and cake was beautiful! Oh not forgetting the HVV jazz ensemble who jazzed up our cocktail hour! And again, you have reminded me of my mom, thank you!

We left a part of our hearts in your winery on our wedding day that we shall be looking forward to reminisce every day.

It’s a day in a place were beauty is all what you can see and love is what all you can feel. 

Thank you so much for everything you have done just to make our wedding an extra ordinary event of a lifetime. From our family to yours..Thank you very much.

- Ellie & Steve
