Our Plan B, C & D Strategy

If you’ve ever been involved in the preparation of a wedding, you know things don’t always go 100% to plan. Maybe an unexpected rainfall or snowstorm forced the ceremony to be changed from outdoor to indoor at the last minute. Or the groom showed up an hour late because he forgot his dinner jacket at home. Perhaps the marriage license was left at the hotel, and the maid of honor had to dutifully fetch it during cocktail hour. At Wedgewood Weddings, we’ve seen all these scenarios play out.

Wine for Your Wedding - Everything You Need To Know

By Guest Contributor on May 4, 2020 2:42:56 PM

Katie Margolis, General Manager, Mountain View Ranch

Pairing the right wine with the right food at your wedding reception can feel like a high-pressure decision. Let's break it down so that you feel confident about your wine selection. Today, I'm going to run through typical features of common varietals and my favorite menu options.

I was about 10 years old when I had my first sip of wine. I was sitting at the dining room table with my parents and a family friend, Bruce. Bruce is one of those people who is larger than life. He’s a big, bald, and irreverent man who loves nothing more than a hearty laugh and a glass of really good wine. Fast forward to when I was 19, Bruce and his wife took me to Paris for a graduation present and what did we do? We ate good food and we drank good wine. After that, I was hooked: I started traveling and collecting fabulous wines.
