  • COVID bride here! Even under our crazy circumstances of 2020, the Carper Winery was super accommodating to our needs and wants. As well as the CDC requirements during the pandemic. We had a small wedding which was unexpected from original plans but it was still amazing. We’re so lucky to have gotten married at such a beautiful venue.
