  • Having Zenith as our wedding venue was one of the highlights to our entire wedding day. The grounds of the vineyard are absolutely breathtaking, and the inside facilities are gorgeous as well. One of the main reasons we wanted to go with Zenith was their ability to accommodate an outside wedding or inside wedding, which in Oregon is always nice to have because rain is almost always a possibility. We were able to have our Plan A (outside wedding), but know that we could go with Plan B (inside) if the weather forecast looked rainy. That helped ease some of the anxiety about Oregon weather and the big event. We loved this venue and are so happy with our decision!

  • The moment we drove around the bend and caught our first glimpse of Zenith, we knew we were going to love the venue. Everything about this place is beautiful, and the people working there make you feel comfortable and confident that your big day is going to be wonderful, organized, and operate smoothly. My worries melted away upon our first meeting, I knew I was in good hands.

  • This venue is beyond gorgeous and accommodating. From the outdoor ceremony, to the indoor reception, and the beautiful Bridal Suite, everything was perfect. As close to all-inclusive as you will get, with chair set-up, and all the cutlery and dining necessities on site. Large, indoor bathrooms (a huge plus for our guests) and ample coat closet for guest use. The facility itself is so well designed, we hardly needed any decor of our own to make this look like a dream. The best part though, was the breathtaking views! Hills of vines as far as the eye can see, gorgeous fountain and pond upon the entrance, and beautifully manicured lawn and flowers. The owners were friendly and down to earth, very easy to deal with, and the event coordinator/manager was amazing - she made the whole process so easy for us! This place will forever hold a special place in my memory as the best day of my life (so far).

  • I would highly recommend planing your wedding or event at Zenith! We looked at at over a dozen venues and narrowed it down to two. Zenith won out with location, service, and trusted vendors. We chose the wines we wanted after a tasting with Jen. We had a small plates tasting menu and ordered six different wines (must order ahead of time- they can give you an idea of how much you'll need). Our left over wine was shipped to us in Texas (we chose to go the cheaper route and wait until the weather was cooler- it arrived in October). Jen was onsite all day for our wedding, and she made sure we and the vendors had everything we needed. We opted to start our day with mimosas while getting ready in the bridal suite. We were able to bring in our own non-alcoholic beverages (juice and sparkling water) and fruit to add to the wine we purchased from Zenith. They have multiple convenient options for payment, including venmo, check, and quickbooks. Because Zenith is about 15 minutes from the Salem... Read more

  • We celebrated our wedding at Zenith Vineyard this September and felt so lucky we found them to celebrate our special day. Kari was receptive and responsive from the very beginning and flexible in meeting with us to tour the grounds. Upon first setting foot onto the event space and appreciating the view from the veranda, we knew it would be a perfect place to gather our loved ones. We had a fun tasting with Tim, as we selected wines for the reception. The only minor challenge we had with working with Zenith was needing to limit our options to a few catering vendors. They all seemed lovely and we loved our final choice, however, it did require some adjustment to our initial vision. The venue, however, was worth it, and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. When it began to rain moments before the start of our ceremony, guests told us Zenith staff passed out umbrellas as they had available. It was too late to transfer everyone to the covered veranda, which was plan B for incle... Read more

  • Zenith Vineyard was the ultimate wedding venue for us. We immediately fell in love with the gorgeous scenery and meticulous attention to detail, both inside and out. The owners, Kari and Tim, are amazing. They both were very professional, accommodating, and kind. We couldn't be more pleased with our wedding location and would highly recommend it to anyone!

  • We had the most amazing wedding at Zenith Vineyard this fall. Not only was the venue and grounds spectacular, but Kari and Tim were incredible. They really have high standards for events and I appreciated how much care and detail they put into ensuring my day was perfect. All of their recommended vendors and advice was spot on, and made my selections so much simpler and quicker. In addition, it really eased my mind knowing the owners would give me honest feedback on various event decisions, since they have seen it all at their venue, which I really do think raised the bar on the quality of an event we had. We had dozens and dozens of guests later tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to - a testament to hard work, a perfect setting, and fabulous vendors. Could not recommend this venue more - rain or shine, a gorgeous place to be married.

    Thanks Danielle so much for your kind words. We loved working with you and Kory and your families! Someone had to get the most beautiful day of the year and we were happy that was you... The fall colors were incredible and you made the most of the day with an outdoor ceremony on October 28th! Bravo!

  • The venue was fantastic. Has the space to hold hundreds, and is able to scale down to tens without feeling empty. Tim and Kari are very easy to work with and very responsive to any inquiries. The location is, in its natural state, very beautiful and well kept. Making it easy to keep your wedding simple while still impressing your guests. Our wedding went smoothly with no last minute issues, thanks again to Tim and Kari's attentiveness. We highly recommend this location to anybody looking for a vineyard venue.

    So delightful to work with you on such a warm and intimate family gathering. Our pleasure to help this day be filled with love and happy memories! Come visit soon and often!!

  • Zenith Vineyard is the most picturesque place to be married in the entire Willamette Valley! I could never have imagined my favorite day taking place anywhere else! As an added bonus, all communication via phone or email was returned promptly while answering all of our questions. Kari and Tim were both phenomenal to work with. From our first tour, to our food and wine tasting, our rehearsal, and finally to our big day, everything was taken care of in an organized, positive, and fun way! We received all the information we needed up front in our initial email inquiry and packet of additional details and vendor suggestions at the tour. After having excelled in the wedding realm for several years, we relied on Kari's input for things like the layout of their ballroom and the day's scheduling that seemed to work best-- we were never steered wrong! From there, it was up to us to make decisions on what we wanted and Zenith was very flexible and accommodating in making that happen. An... Read more

  • Zenith was the first and last venue we had to see before choosing where we would get married. We knew instantly that this would be the place based on the views and spunkiness of Jennifer! She was fun to work with from the get go and everything came to fruition just as we imagined it. We also stayed on the property and it was beautiful! Thank you Zenith for making our day just as amazing as we imagined it would be!

  • We can't say enough great things about Jenn (the event coordination and our day of coordinator), the venue itself, and the crew that helped organize our day just how we pictured it. The only downfall is the owner's husband, Tim. We had an extremely horrible experiences with him that gave us more stress than was needed There is no professionalism with Tim nor would we ever want to work with him again. Not only were we mischarged for items with no explanation why, but due to our credit card being flagged for fraudulent activity and we had discussed with him we had made a payment, he decided to contact all of our outside hired vendors and tell them our wedding was canceled due to non-payment and not to show up 4 DAYS BEFORE OUR WEDDING. No couple needs stress days before their wedding day with everything that comes with planning your own wedding. This is not to give a bad name to the venue or to take away from how amazing our wedding was, but it did leave us with a bad taste in our mouth.... Read more

    What can we say? Payment was due in May and as Kensey writes above, four days before the wedding they had a $2,000+ balance. We can't move ahead with a wedding without payment. We did not put this stress on her, they put it on themselves by not paying their bill in a timely way. We have notice requirements in our contract where we need to give the client notice of default with enough time to cure the default (non-payment). So if you don't pay, you will get a notice of default right before your wedding. They were miss charged for nothing - they apparently had not read the invoice and before they paid it, they read it and agreed that all charges were correct. It has been more than eight years since our last non-paying client and we truly regret putting this stress on a Bride in any case, but in this case, is was 100% self-inflicted.

  • The first time that my husband and I showed up to tour the venue, our jaws dropped. So gorgeous! The only reason that I'm not giving a 5-star average is because this place is expensive. I don't mean that in a bad way. It's a gorgeous venue, and so it comes with a pricetag. I won't share what I paid because it's seasonal and very much dependent on what day of the week you host your wedding. They are very straightforward people, so I recommend that whatever your concerns or needs are, just be transparent with them.

  • We picked the Zenith Vineyard because it is beautiful and affordable; our guests were amazed with the place. Tim & Kari Ramey were very nice to us by giving us all the information that we needed. No unexpected fees, everything was comprehensive. They have good wine too. We wish that they were a little bit flexible or had many food carters , so that their clients could have many options to pick whichever fit their budget. For us we had no choice, but to go big on food. Their associated Caterers are expensive especially if you're planning on inviting many people, so make sure you talk about this before you sign the contract, other than this the Zenith Vineyard has nice and amazing view. You won't be disappointed.

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Guylain, We like to think that we are super-clear in our catering requirements and we do offer a total of four caterers to choose from. So everyone knows, or should know that before a contract is signed. I'm sorry that made you give us a review that is below our average - your prerogative. We've done over 750 events at Zenith and we have enough experiece to know that working with one of our four approved caterers is the right thing to do - even if that narrows your choices. When we have had a 1st time caterer at Zenith it has usually been a bad experience for the client and for Zenith - they can't possibly know how to execute at Zenith the way our approved caterers do - who have dozens or hundreds of events at Zenith

  • Thank you Kari & Tim. All of our guests raved about your beautiful vineyard and grand ballroom. The crew did a wonderful job with the wedding party. They were professional and courteous at all times. The wines from Zenith were perfectly paired with the toasts, dinner and dessert. My daughter had the wedding of her dreams and Zenith made it a success.
