James Arthur Vineyards Weddings
Celebrate your special day with an outdoor ceremony at James Arthur Vineyards. The winery offers two options to make your wedding memorable.
Option 1: The Winery
Wedding ceremonies will take place at 10 a.m. Saturdays when the winery is closed to the public unless other arrangements are made. Ceremonies will be held in front of the waterfall with guests seated in each gazebo and in white resin chairs on the concrete pad directly behind the bride and groom. Because of space, in the event of inclement weather, the maximum number of invited guests will be capped at 70. Notice will be given at least 2 days before the ceremony so that chairs can be set up for invited guests accordingly. The cost is $750 plus sales tax for a 3-hour rental of the facility (includes the ceremony and time for photos), a wine toast provided by JAV and any staffing requirements.Download Option One Contract
Option 2: Park Area
James Arthur Vineyards has a park area located to the south of the winery near the vineyards. The bride and groom (or designated wedding planner) will work closely with JAV staff to work out the details of the ceremony. However, it will be the responsibility of the bride and groom to make the necessary arrangements for the wedding ceremony which can include rental of chairs, tents and other necessities. Ceremonies will take place during the winery’s normal operating hours unless other arrangements are made. The space can hold up to 200 invited guests. However, JAV does not have a facility that can accommodate that many guests in case of inclement weather. The cost is $700 plus sales tax for a 3-hour rental of the area (includes the ceremony and time for photos) and any staffing requirements.Download Option Two Contract
