Love wine? Check out these winery wedding venues for your big day

If you’re an experienced wine lover or a budding enthusiast, the winery wedding venues in Napa Valley and Sonoma County California are the perfect setting for your laid-back, luxurious nuptials.

Known for their rolling hills covered in vines and vineyards, the destinations of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys in California are the two most well-known wine regions in the world. While prestigious Napa has a more polished feel and has its wineries and towns more centrally located along Highway 29 and Silverado Trail, don’t overlook Sonoma County. Wineries are more expansively situated throughout the county, from the city of Sonoma in the east to Santa Rosa in the central part of the county and then up to Healdsburg.

Whether you’re looking at rustic winery wedding venues or locations with a more modern aesthetic, California wine country offers breathtaking views, elegant event spaces, and world-class chefs to those seeking the most sophisticated and intimate weddings.

Tips when considering winery wedding venues

  • Think about the experience you want to have while planning your wedding and on your wedding day.

Do you want to construct a ceremony and reception site from scratch? Or, would you rather have a venue with many amenities available? Either way, an expert wedding designer (we know a few!) can help turn your vision into a reality.

  • Look at the existing environment and dream bigger.

Carefully chosen details and design elements can accentuate the natural beauty of outdoor wedding venues. From lighting to floral arrangements to gorgeous crystals hanging from branches, these touches turn the great outdoors into yours.

  • How accessible should your wedding venue be?

Do you need a spot that’s easy to drive up to? Or is everyone up for a bit of a trek to get to the ceremony site? Either way, matching the activity required to get to a location with your guests’ mobility can be vital to creating a memorable experience.
