We had pre-ceremony wine, iced tea, lemonade, fruit and cheese as guests arrived, our ceremony was under the tent outside, then the cocktail hour was in the barn with a jazz band playing, lots of passed appetizers, and more wine, beer, and champagne, then guests went to the vineyard lawn for dinner and dancing under the stars. The staff at Cornerstone was incredible, attentive, organized, and very sweet. We had Cornerstone cater the wedding. The food was delicious and the service was top notch."
