The Sanctuary Vineyards is an awesome venue for a wedding. Being from out of state, we were skeptical when our kids decided to have an outdoor ceremony at the end of October at a working winery. When we arrived on Thursday afternoon, we found just that, a working winery with boxes, etc. piled from floor to ceiling in the wine room. We couldn't have been more surprised on Friday when we arrived for rehearsal. The wedding site was transformed from a bare field to an outdoor Sanctuary and many workers were bustling inside to transform the 'wine room' into a fairyland like something out of OZ. Our daughter's wedding was elegant country and Brooke Mayo Photography captured every aspect perfectly. You will not be disappointed with this venue, and if you are lucky enough to book it, don't miss out on having Brooke do your photography!

Sanctuary Vineyards was the perfect location for our wedding. From day one John was very gracious in providing us tons of information and was happy to answer any and all questions leading up to the event. Not only was he informative, but also not pushy in any way making us decide this venue or any particular vendor.

A few days before and leading up were seamless. Everyone was open to us providing decor and was helpful in making everything happen as we wanted to. Winery staff and bartenders could not be more helpful and fun day of. The event and ceremony space itself are also very inclusive of almost everything you would need. It was great not having to rent chairs, tables, etc. adding to yet another thing on your to do list.

The venue is also very beautiful and the perfect backdrop for a wedding. The wine is also delicious and well received amongst the guests!

This venue was beyond amazing! It was the perfect location for our rustic wedding! The vineyard is beautiful and the reception location is very laid-back and accommodating! I was able to provide my own choice of catering company, incorporate my own decorations, and even provide my own liquor. The owner, John, is so flexible and will help in any way possible. I highly recommend this venue for any bride who wants a rustic, affordable, outdoor location...the beauty of the vineyard helps make the pictures so beautiful! This was the best venue away from the bustle of the hampton roads area and all of our guests said it was the best wedding location!

John and the entire Sanctuary Vineyard team were extremely helpful and a wonderful group of people to work with. The venue is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a wedding that is relaxed, but romantic. We got married outside in the vineyard and the crew did everything to set up/take down the ceremony and transition to the reception. The reception was perfect because the cocktail hour could be in the tasting room and then the actual reception was held where the wine is bottled. The Sanctuary Vineyard team were all easy-going, more than happy to help with anything I asked for, and open to new ideas. John has a lot of knowledge about wedding planning and can give great recommendations about vendors to use and how to set up. It was truly a dream come true and I HIGHLY recommend Sanctuary Vineyard as a wedding venue!

John Wright and his entire staff at Sanctuary Vineyards were a pleasure to work with. From the initial start of the wedding planning process they were attentive, easy to work with and seemed truly excited to host our wedding. They catered to all of our needs and desires, went out of their way to make sure every detail was perfect and were always pleasant and professional. I would highly recommend Sanctuary Vineyards as a casual yet elegant venue for weddings and events.

The venue is gorgeous! The owner John Wright is extremely responsive, accommodating, and was very sensitive to our needs. I could not imagine having my wedding anywhere else. It was perfect in October but I'm sure any time of year!

My husband and I recently had our ceremony and reception at Sanctuary Vineyards and would recommend this venue to anyone planning an event. We worked with John who was very professional and knowledgeable. He was very helpful with planning our event, which was a tremendous help.

Our ceremony was held in the vineyard itself. The space was breathtaking! The beautiful vines and grapes were enough backdrop that no other decorations were needed. We had so many compliments on the natural beauty. It was evident that the guests enjoyed the atmosphere as much as we did.

Our reception was held in the winery itself. There are two main spaces, one with a bar area, perfect for cocktail hour, and the other the larger space for dining and dancing. It was very conducive to a wedding reception as the two spaces could remain separate until we were set up for dinner and then the two spaces were opened to one another to create a good flow. The decor has a stylish modern twist that can be transformed to the style of your liking very easily. This was one of the main things that drew my husband and I to this location since many of the places in the area have a heavy beach theme that can be hard to tailor to a different decor.

As Sanctuary Vineyards is a winery, we served their wine at our event and had RAVE reviews. Some of our guests actually went back the following day to purchase some to take home with them!

The two bartenders who assisted with our event were extremely nice and a great pleasure to work with. Proving what a great team John has.

My husband and I can say that choosing Sanctuary Vineyards as our venue was one of the best choices we made for our wedding. We had a spectacular time celebrating there and our guests did as well.

We used Sanctuary Vineyards for our ceremony and reception site. Leading up the wedding they were amazing about answering emails and open to pretty much anything.

They are relatively new to holding large events like weddings, so we had a few issues the couple days before the wedding, but in the end it was absolutely beautiful. We were told we could come in and decorate on Thursday, then that changed to Friday and when we arrived on Friday to decorate, the floors in the back room were still being washed and were soaking wet. We ended up having to get everything together in the front room and then come back Saturday morning before our hair/makeup appointments to finish decorating/setting up. Our wedding turned out to be the first wedding of their fall season, so they had to spend a little extra time getting ready.

They also have a tent so if you wanted to hold the reception outdoors you can. The ceremony was awesome and absolutely beautiful in the vineyard.

John and Elton really are fantastic and very accommodating. I would recommend Sanctuary to anyone - just make sure you are firm on what you want and when you can start decorating/setting up (especially if you don't have a planner/event decorator to do it for you!).

Sanctuary Vineyards was the PERFECT outdoor location and setting for our wedding!!!! Located in Jarvisburg, NC, the vineyard and Cotton Gin grounds couldn't have been a more perfectly chosen backdrop for what came to be nothing short of a FAIRYTALE. The Wright Family, especially Owner, Tommy and his son, and Winery Operator John Wright. Though ours was one of the first weddings held there ever, the family and their staff has a lot of experience hosting large events through wine tastings, festivals and family events. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating with every last request or concern. Our wedding was the first week of October, luckily, with beautiful weather. The vineyards and surrounding fields and gardens were lush and green, but the site is maintained and having grown up in the area, I can tell you that it is beautful and well-maintained year-round. Our ceremony was held on a grassy lawn along one of the vineyards, and rows of fresh, ripe grapes and rows of vines served as the perfect backdrop for our alter. White folding chairs were provided, as well as props and helpful hands of their staff. We chose to hold our reception in a tent on an adjacent lawn, and arrangements were offered for provision of tent, tables and chairs if needed. The newly completed, and fully operational winery is now available for an intimate, indoor option and can be set up to suit any event of this type. John and winery staff served wine at the reception that was grown and produced by Sanctuary Vineyards too, which our guests LOVED!There couldn't have been a better place to hold such a special occasion, and couldn't come more highly recommended. Call John and let him help you to create your DREAM WEDDING!
