Social media experiments are popping up all over the place, from sales initiatives, to fundraisers and even selling houses through Twitter. Karen, a local wine blogger known to those on Twitter as Winebard, is conducting her own experiment for one of the most important days of her life.
“I am inviting vineyards in Napa and Sonoma to consider hosting our entourage of four on August 18, 2009 for our vows. We seek a very intimate setting surrounded by the glorious beauty of vines so alive and ripe with symbolism.” – Where Will Winebard Wed
She and her fiancÃ© will be in Napa along with her dress, shoes, photographer, and all the wedding basics except for a venue. She’s started up this website to see if it can reach out to wineries and vineyards in the area and have them host her nuptials on their land.
On her wish list she’s included the following required elements from the host location (although she is flexible):
- Rose bushes at the end of the rows of vines
- Picturesque location for Wedding photos
- Can accommodate four people for about one hour on Aug 18th
- No staff, or event space required from the vineyard
- BONUS: Will hold a video camera for 10 mins or be our witness
If you are in the wine business in the Napa Valley and can accommodate this, be sure to contact Karen before August 14th. I’m certain your online exposure will grow (both on websites and Twitter) should you be able to host this event. Also, if you read about this campaign on Miss604.com, please be sure to let her know as I’d love to play a small part in making this happy day happen.
