Creating a dreamy Napa Valley wedding experience for you and your guests involves a heap of details: the food, florals, music, decor, and so much more. It’s easy to get lost in the weeds of the amount of decisions you and your boo need to make during your wedding journey.
But there’s a choice that we would venture to say is one of the most, if not the most, important of them all.
Your venue sets the stage for everything that will make your wedding day wonderful and reflective of you and your love. It’s the backdrop of your photos, establishes the atmosphere of your ceremony, determines the vibe of your reception, and so much more.
For this reason, we suggest newly engaged couples settle on a location and a venue as soon as possible in their planning process so they have the best chance of landing the date and venue of their dreams. And we mean as soon as possible. Like – you popped the question yesterday? Start your venue search TODAY.
But have no fear, we have some insider recommendations for that perfect venue.
With years of firsthand experience working with some of the most dazzling Napa Valley wedding venues, we’ve seen this curated collection of locations make for the backdrop of incredible events time and time again.
