Couldn’t Say “I do?” Okanagan Wineries Invite Couples To Exchange Vows In The Vineyard

July 6, 2020

All-Inclusive “Minimony” Packages On August 1 Will See Couples Safely Wed Amid Stunning Backdrops And Toast With Local Wines

OKANAGAN – With the traditional big wedding stepping aside due to COVID-19, many Canadian couples who planned to wed this summer have made the difficult choice of pivoting with an intimate backyard nuptial, a last-minute elopement or to postpone outright.

Those who want to show that love can indeed conquer all are turning to pop-up wedding chapels and “minimonies”, celebrating their day in style with a few local loved ones at a safe distance, while other guests join virtually.

To help couples realize the wedding of their dreams, select wineries See Ya Later RanchSumac Ridge and Nk’Mip Cellars in British Columbia as well as a few in Ontario, have developed special, all-inclusive wedding packages for one day only – Saturday, August 1.

“While traditional wedding plans may have been stifled, we’re here to help couples achieve their dreams in a safe, uncomplicated way that is still breathtaking and unforgettable,” says Andrea Hunt, EVP marketing at Arterra Wines Canada. “These simple yet elegant options at the estates offer a wonderful and memorable backdrop for nuptials, helping brides and grooms tie the knot despite these exceptional times.”

The all-inclusive wedding packages are intentionally different than a typical wedding, featuring a two-hour window for up to 20 guests. All packages include an officiant, a photographer, wedding confections, charcuterie platter, set up and, of course, VQA wine. Pricing is simplified at $1,999 per couple. Spaces are limited.
