Meet the people who bring our venue to life.
Sarah Silicato Jones – Venue Director
Sarah graduated from University of Delaware in 2017 with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing. While working full-time in the sales industry, she started her own passion project, Sarah Ashlin Events, which was an event planning business that serviced the Delmarva region. In 2019, Sarah started full-time with Vanderwende Acres to follow her dreams of working in the wedding industry, and hasn’t looked back since!
In her free time, you can most likely find her in Target or spending the day with her pup, Henley and husband, Corey (who you’ll likely see helping around the venue every once in a while!).
Courtney Taylor – Event Coordinator
Courtney has a background in the catering and business industries of over seven years combined. She originally started at Vanderwende Acres in early 2020, as one of our assistant coordinators. Her passion for our couples and the wedding industry made such an impact, we knew she would be a vital addition to our VA family. Courtney is now our full-time Event Coordinator!
As an Event Coordinator, you will see Courtney assisting in tours and answering any questions during your planning process as a VA Couple!
