Rolling green hills, temperate weather, and over 100 private vineyards make Napa Valley, California, one of the most romantic wedding destinations. A Napa Valley wedding can be anything from an intimate, inexpensive ceremony with close family and friends to a lavish, unforgettable affair attended by a hundreds.
If you have your heart set on an event wedding in Napa Valley, you have many options from which to choose. The Carneros Inn, the Silverado and the Auberge du Soleil all offer elegant customized wedding packages, as does the Vintage Inn in nearby Yountville, which can accommodate over 1,000 guests.
For simpler and more intimate options, consider one of the intimate wedding packages offered by Calistoga Ranch, the historic White House Inn and the Churchill Inn. These venues in 2009 offer wedding packages for anywhere from 20 to just over 100 guests starting at $5,000.
Only a few Napa Valley vineyards host weddings, including Aaron's Vineyards, which features a two-story Plantation-style home set amid 10 acres of vineyards and offers wedding packages in 2009 under $10,000. Other local vineyards available for weddings include V. Sattui and Silver Rose.
You could plan a more adventurous setting for your Napa Valley nuptials. A river cruise with Napa River Adventures in 2009 costs under $500 for private cruises of up to 11 passengers. For a more elegant option, consider a customized wedding package with the Napa Valley Wine Train.
For a romantic, and truly cost-effective, wedding option, choose an elopement package. As of 2009, the historic Churchill Manor offers customizable elopement packages beginning at $1,500, and both Aaron's Vineyards and the Hacienda Tuscan Villa offer all-inclusive packages starting around $2,000.
