James & Diana'sRavine Winery WeddingWedding Prep at Woodbourne Inn

Something I like to spend time writing about here for our wedding and engagement session posts is featuring wedding venues, and offering real wedding tips for wedding’s in Niagara. Today will be no different as we’ll be featuring Ravine Estate Winery as well as the Woodbourne Inn. Okay, so without a doubt Ravine Estate Winery is one of Niagara’s top wedding venues to host your wedding. It’s truly an all in one location in the heart of St. David’s. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is incredible, the staff is professional and friendly and it’s surrounded by some of the most beautiful Bed & Breakfasts in Niagara for any out of town guests (or for your lovely bridal prep). James and Diana hosted their vineyard wedding at Ravine and rented out the gorgeous Woodbourne Inn for their family and friends to stay from out of town. What an incredible way to celebrate together; with family and friends all getting ready under one big beautiful roof. I honestly can’t say enough about the Woodbourne Inn. It along with a few others make up the best prep locations in Niagara, especially from a wedding photographers perspective. If you’ve never experienced a wedding at Woodbourne Inn or even stayed a night there I would highly recommend it! (Check out this shoot that also took place at the Woodbourne Inn earlier if you want to see more). The Woodbourne is located just around the corner from Ravine and makes for the ultimate prep, rehearsal, or even honeymoon location for any Ravine Winery wedding.

This is one other thing that I really love about a Ravine Winery wedding, it actually features the vineyards in the ceremony as well as around the tents for the reception. Ravine’s wedding reception tents are also something to mention. Large and permanent, (two words that aren’t always spoken of wedding tent rentals). It also has panoramic views of the vineyards and the sunset. james and diana 21 james and diana 22 james and diana 23 james and diana 24 james and diana 25 james and diana 26 james and diana 27 james and diana 28 james and diana 29

Speaking of sunsets, a Ravine Winery wedding is never complete without capitalizing on sunset photos during golden hour. Here’s a small set of images from our sunset photos with James & Diana.
