Sarah and Derek decided to have their wedding in a winery—and to get married right away. Why wait?! It was nothing short of a miracle to select and book the vendors and finalize the beautiful details, but they accomplished it all in one month.

They wed on an absolutely glorious April day in front of an intimate group of their nearest and dearest. They included two VIPs (Very Important Pups) who were so well behaved. The arbor was stunning with colorful, organically arranged florals. These Wine Club members had a beautiful exchange of vows, and placed their favorite wine into a commemorate box to open on their anniversary.

One of the best reasons to have your wedding in a winery like 8 Chains North is how dog-friendly it is. Many couples choose to include their furry friends as part of their vineyard wedding. That brings some very special photography moments!  We allow dogs in the Tasting Room. Also, we provide an off-leash dog park to expend excess energy. From ring-bearers, to best-mutts, dogs have played many roles in weddings hosted at 8 Chains North. Besides, why wouldn’t you invite man’s best friend?
