Vows in the Vines

Written by Austin Littrell and Mackenzie Taylor

Consider exchanging your marriage vows in one of our local vineyards.

You don’t have to be a couple of wine connoisseurs to enjoy the beauty of these local wineries as wedding venues, though it sure wouldn’t hurt. From outdoor vineyards running across acres of lush Pennsylvania landscapes to the historic barns and cellars that house the wine, take your wedding party to an idyllic setting in wine country, right here in County Lines country.

Get a taste of Southeastern PA at the Acadian Wine Company in West Grove. The decades-old vineyard and winery offer several wedding spaces — from the production cellar to lush lawns to galleries.

The day-of can be very busy, so enjoy peace of mind knowing there will be an onsite coordinator to help make sure everything runs smoothly. Maximum capacity of 60 seated or 125 standing indoors as well as 500 outdoors, so there’s room for your entire guest list. Outside catering permitted. 553 S. Guernsey Rd., West Grove.
