Networking at Youngberg Hill

How gorgeous is this as a place to get married? Youngberg Hill Vineyard and Inn is a working vineyard with eight guest rooms in the inn. And a wedding-day view you will never forget!

It was the site of our July meeting of Wine Country Wedding Professionals. Absolutely delicious tasty treats were provided by Virginia Murphy and staff of Cafe Uncorked. I could have made a full meal of the hazelnut custard topped with fresh local raspberries!

The flower arrangements were provided by The Garden Path. It was a fun and creative process. We pulled the containers from our personal collections of vases, and used only completely reusable mechanics (no wet foam!). All flowers were held in place by their own stems, or by glass frogs or metal pin holders. (Remember them?)
The flowers were "all local" - coming from within 15 miles of the venue. It was a trip back to my flower-arranging roots - back to the days when I used almost exclusively flowers from my own yard and gardens.
Many new contacts were made, and a wonderful afternoon was had by all.
Thank you, Continuum Photography, for the beautiful photos. There is nothing like pro shots to show off the site, food and flowers!
