Deacon Fred has been amazing and the 1 hour Pre-Cana was great as well.. the wedding before us was running a late-about 45 minutes (as were we because of a dress issue for my poor mom) and they offered help to get everything set up in time before we arrived. The prayer garden alone for the receiving line were enough to make this location. Bonus-they sent us a dvd of the ceremony-included in the fee we had already paid, and a cd of our wedding.
I was overwhelmed at planning long distance in the last month or so, but Ventosa (and RJ in particular) were phenomenal. He was prompt to answer all my questions and concerns. this place is amazing for a reception-large or small.. i had specific ideas of how i wanted it to look and they far exceeded what i even pictured. the vineyard, the view of the lake and especially the porch made our reception complete. the comfy seating outside (rocking chairs, lounch chairs and benches) were the perfect touch for those who wanted to do wine tasting and just enjoy the perfect weather. rj was wonderful all night, making sure we had access to the barrel room for pics, getting a cab for my grandparents who were tired and were waiting for the late shuttle, and gettting the wine bar miscommunication(My fault) promptly fixed. i highly recommend this location-perfect spot!!!
