The picturesque Courtyard & Vintner's Pavilion is South Jersey's most beautiful outdoor wedding venue. Valenzano Winery has the experience and understanding to successfully execute outdoor events and wedding receptions. Any pretty farm can throw up a tent and consider itself a wedding venue. Very few of these locations have the experience, facilities, and management to ensure your event is perfect from start to finish, and that all contingencies have been planned for. This is what Valenzano Winery and our approved catering partners bring to the table.
Over the years many couples have visited us with the same story, "I want to have a tented wedding reception in my family's backyard but we were quickly over budget when we calculated the costs of tenting, lighting, restrooms, dance floor, bar, seating, etc... it became clear how difficult it is to manage a large outdoor party". We understand these challenges and we have a solution!
It's extremely difficult to pull off the perfect wedding reception outdoors. An outdoor vineyard reception and ceremony is a beautiful moment when it is hosted by professional caterers with decades of experience. It can be a disaster without these professionals and expertise. The renovated Courtyard and Pavilion at Valenzano Winery offers a stunning outdoor setting with backup plans to ensure your day is perfect no matter the weather or circumstances. We have it all figured out for you; Valenzano Winery along with Summit Catering and Due Amici Catering is one of the few teams in south Jersey that can provide you the perfect venue and management for the special wedding day you have always dreamed of.
- Vintner's Pavilion is capable of seating 150 guests comfortably for up to a 5-hour reception and 1/2 hour ceremony.
- Use of the Wine House which includes a mahogany wine bar, restrooms, and additional seating area
- 4 large fire-pits with seating and gas tiki torch lighting throughout the courtyard provides incredibly dazzling lighting after sunset.

Other expenses customers and less experienced party planners fail to properly address when planning outdoor events include trash removal, septic capacity, walkways, lighting, electric capacity for band/DJ, parking, and a solid backup plan for rain. At Valenzano Winery of these concerns have been addressed, tested. and perfected through decades of experience. There are currently only a handful of venues offering a complete package for outdoor wedding receptions. Valenzano Winery should be on the top of your list when starting your wedding day planning.
