Wedding Venues: Vineyards

If you have not already known, I am currently in the midst of wedding planning and boy are there tons of different components to gather friends and family to celebrate marriage between 2 people who are deeply in love. 

I got engaged on December 3, 2016, where my fiancé decided to propose to me on our trip to Iceland. Since then, I have been looking for wedding venues in California to host our wedding. We wanted to have our wedding at a vineyard sometime in October because of its beautiful sceneries and perfect weather. After searching for hours, days, weeks, and months, my fiancé and I finally decided to have our wedding in Sula, Montana instead. Hosting a wedding in Montana gives my fiancé and I a little bit of wiggle room to decorate our wedding the way we want to without the stress of expensive wedding costs. 

For people out there who are planning to get married, beware. Weddings are ridiculously expensive, especially in California. Rental fees for vineyard sites go from $6,000 up to $25,000 and many sites do not include chair or table rentals. Want to know another ridiculous fact? Most site fees for weddings go up every year! 

In hopes of making your life a little easier with wedding planning, I decided to share with you details and information I have collected regarding venues. Let's be real here. I did not want all that hard work of researching places to go to waste either. It's a win-win situation!
