TORONTO,¬†July 6, 2020¬†/CNW/ –¬†With the traditional big wedding stepping aside due to COVID-19, many Canadian couples who planned to wed this summer have made the difficult choice of pivoting with an intimate backyard nuptial, a last-minute elopement or to postpone outright. ¬†Those who want to show that love can indeed conquer all are turning to pop-up wedding chapels and “minimonies”, celebrating their day in style with a few local loved ones at a safe distance, while other guests join virtually.

To help couples realize the wedding of their dreams, select wineries like¬†Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery,¬†Inniskillin Niagara Estate Winery¬†and¬†Sandbanks Winery¬†in¬†Ontario¬†and¬†See Ya Later Ranch,¬†Sumac Ridge¬†and¬†Nk’Mip Cellars¬†in¬†British Columbia¬†have developed special, all-inclusive wedding packages for one day only ‚ÄstSaturday, August 1.

“While traditional wedding plans may have been stifled, we’re here to help couples achieve their dreams in a safe, uncomplicated way that is still breathtaking and unforgettable,” says¬†Andrea Hunt, EVP marketing at Arterra Wines Canada. “These simple yet elegant options at the estates offer a wonderful and memorable backdrop for nuptials, helping brides and grooms tie the knot despite these exceptional times.”

The all-inclusive wedding packages are intentionally different than a typical wedding, featuring a two-hour window for up to 20 guests. All packages include an officiant, a photographer, wedding confections, charcuterie platter, set up and, of course, VQA wine. Pricing is simplified at $1,999 per couple. Spaces are limited.
