Wedding planning season is in full swing, and I am looking forward to writing weekly (or hopefully more often) blog entries that celebrate the fabulous local venues where we cater special events.
This September wedding at Unionville Vineyard was so unique and beautiful.
I have to say, Unionville's Ringoes property boasts some of THE most breathtaking views that there are in NJ. B+G, Mary and James, enjoyed a perfectly picturesque ceremony on the back lawn of the charming brick manor house on the property, which overlooks rows and rows of thriving grape vines. Depending on the season, the vines offer a vibrant green, or autumnal golden backdrop to wedding ceremonies.
Following the ceremony, cocktail hour was enjoyed inside the winery, in the Barrel Room and in the fieldstone lined Cave Room. Guests sipped on Unionville's award winning wines (Cam Jam is a favorite of mine!) while grazing on an Artisan Cheese Table featuring local NJ cheeses and early Autumn fruits. Seeing the inner workings of the winery serves as a wonderful conversation piece for guests, who enjoy perusing while mingling in this large, lofty space.
A four course plated dinner and dancing followed, with guests overlooking the nearby farms and hillsides under the lantern-lit tent set alongside the winery. After dusk, the burlap accented cake, adorned, of course, with grapes, was cut and served in the Barrel Room where guests continued to dance the night away.
Unionville Vineyard's charm and character sets the stage for unforgettable weddings and events. Visiting Unionville is like stepping into the best kept secret countryside around; a wonderful feeling while celebrating very special occasions with friends and family!
