Two Rivers Winery’s Wedding Ceremony Locations

Most ceremonies at Two Rivers Winery take place outside before the pavilion, surrounded by florals and grapevines. The sprawling lawn gives plenty of space for a large number of guests to sit comfortably, while giving your photographer(s) and videographer(s) ample space to move around for the best angles of your wedding ceremony. In some cases, couples will get married inside instead, whether for rain or snow in the winter. It makes a beautiful option for inclement weather, with the Grand Staircase as your ceremony backdrop.
