One of my favorite moments of our wedding day was when Matt and I slipped away from our reception and spent a little time together in Grace Winery’s vineyard at sunset. Our photographer, Melissa Hassey, captured the moment through the grape vines:
Getting married at a winery had some awesome perks. We attended wine tastings, our friends relaxed in the vineyard sipping wine before our wedding started, and, of course, everyone enjoyed drinking the locally made wines at the reception!
Matt and I shared bottles of Grace Winery’s 2012 Pinot Gris (pictured above left) with our bridal party before the ceremony. This freshly bottled Pinot Gris was light, refreshing and perfect for a warm June afternoon. We also served Grace Winery’s oaky 2010 Reserve Chardonnay (my personal favorite) and a sweet and slightly smoky 2012 red that was so new it didn’t yet have an official name!
Grace Winery is about 3 miles from our house and they have tastings every weekend so we look forward to trying new vintages in the future! We’ll definitely have to get a bottle or two for our first anniversary next June. 🙂
If you ever find yourself in Philadelphia’s western suburbs yearning for a glass of wine make sure to check out Grace Winery! Their tasting room is open nearly every weekend and the barn, vineyard, and surrounding farmlands are beautiful. Grace Winery at Sweetwater Farm, 50 Sweetwater Road, Glen Mills, PA 19342; 610-459-4711.
