My fiance and I cam to Novelty Hill-Januik for a wine tasting a few months before our engagement. We loved their wine and were very impressed with the space. So when we became engaged it was the obvious first pick for a wedding venue. The No...
rthwest modern design of the venue is just perfect for a Seattle area wedding and fit the "classy, not pretentious" vibe I was going for. We chose orange and grey as our wedding colors as they were the most natural fit with the venues existing decor. Needless to say it all looked great. We got married on Labor Day, and got the Sunday pricing. Coupled with a special they were having earlier in the year, the price was just right and didn't break the bank.
Emily, the wedding coordinator, was just amazing to work with and had every detail absolutely covered. I was planning the wedding from the opposite side of the country and went out to visit a month before the wedding to go over some final details. My stress levels plummeted after that meeting as I knew Emily was on top of it and covered details I didn't even know existed. She also had a list of vendors they have worked with and that's how we found our DJ (Greg, from Affairs to Remember, total pro). Her and the staff were on point the entire night and made sure everything went smoothly. I have never been so relaxed at a wedding, and this one was my own!
We knew the wine was good, but were blown away by just how amazing their food was! All of our guests commented on how good it was and we ended up running out of quite a few things. I recommend the manchengo gougeres, they were delightful.
A couple of additional highlights:
- We did a mix of tables and tallboys, which worked really nicely. I didn't want to do a formal dinner or assigned seats, so we just had a few food stations set up. That worked really well, created a great conversational atmosphere.
- They provide most of the decor (sans flowers), and that includes a giant assortment of glassy babies.
- We had a bottle of sauvignon blanc and assorted non-alcoholic beverages in the bridal prep room - it was a nice touch.
- The pictures in the room where they store the wine barrels came out great.
To anyone looking to get married in the Seattle area, I would highly recommend Novelty Hill-Januik Winery.
