You Never Know When a Networking Contact Will Pay Off!
We recently drove down to check out the J. Wrigley Vineyards off Hwy 18 near Sheridan. We had been asked by a bridal client to recommend her reception band, based on the positive experience her fiance's sister had had, booking her reception band with us in 2009.
We like to see the performance space, and verify the mileage for the band, so we can make the most accurate recommendations to our clients. J Wrigley Vineyards, www.wrigleywines.com, is a stunning location, right on the top of a hill with a commanding view of the surrounding Yamhill county. The tasting room has rustic furniture and wall coverings of re-claimed wood, a large fireplace, plenty of windows, and a nearly complete bride's bedroom/changing room and private bath.
After seeing the space, we were able to recommend a slightly smaller sized band for our client, to better fit the available space, allow for the dance floor, and acceptable volume level.
The vineyard outside, has several areas suitable for holding ceremonies, and also for setting up outside tables for the party.
We were pleased we were able to recommend Tracy Amos, 503-481-4449, owner of One-Of-A-Kind, Classic, Vintage Furniture Rentals. www.classicvintagerentals.com. We had met her the week before at a NW Wed Pro monthly Wedding Network Group dinner at The Aerie At Eagle Landing. Tracy's furniture would be perfect for their bride who wanted to create an elegant, but rustic ambiance, so we recommended her right away.
