WeatherLea’s most popular outdoor ceremony site is our garden with its lovely green gazebo set amid flowering shrubs and trees, with a good view of the vineyard and the pond. Alternatively, you can reserve other sites on the farm for your rustic wedding by special arrangement. In the rare case of inclement weather, our historic red barn has proven to be an excellent venue for all three wedding components – ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner/dancing reception. Chairs are provided for the ceremony.
The Cocktail Hour
Most couples opt for an hour or so of outside drinks and hors d’oeuvres between ceremony and dinner, giving their guests a chance to catch up and relax with friends and family while the wedding couple completes their photography throughout our highly scenic farm. (The 1953 Ford pickup truck is a favorite photo prop, and even the sheep and llamas like to get into the act!) A cocktail hour in the vineyard on the hill – an upgrade option – offers fabulous sunset opportunities, especially in autumn.
