Congratulations on your engagement!
Have your dream winery wedding at VanArnam Vineyards. We are an outside venue with amazing views of Mt. Adams and the orchards and vineyards of the Yakima Valley. The sunsets are breathtaking and provide dramatic lighting for wedding photos. Here are some options for your perfect day.
Bridal party preparation - We have a gorgeous, private 1 bedroom cottage which is ideal for bridal party dressing. Groomsmen have access to their own space in our winery barrel room for adjusting ties and such.
Welcoming time - Typically, your guests gather prior to the ceremony in our tuscan-themed courtyard space to say hello and sign the guest book. Wedding parties have the options of appetizers and wine before the wedding. Music can be included during this time, anything from your favorite playlist to live music of your choice.
Ceremony - Most wedding parties choose to have the ceremony on our beautiful lawn. We have an intimate arbor under a willow tree, or a beautiful elevated pavillion. An onsite visit will help you decide which is best for you. We have power available for music and microphones. Our friendly staff does all of the setup and take down for chairs, tables etc.
Post wedding - While the bride and groom have their photos taken, the guests can go up to the courtyard to mix and mingle with appetizers an wine.
Dinner - Weddings of up to 100 guests can seat their friends in our partially covered courtyard complete with twinkle lights. For more than 100 guests we will set up the tables and chairs on the lawn.
Dancing - After dinner, we clear a space in the courtyard for dancing and social time into the evening. As the sun sets, the twinkle lights come on and the beautiful Yakima evenings provide the perfect setting to get your boogie on.
