Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful regions in all of California. Couples from all around the country and the world choose Napa Valley, California as a destination for their getaways–and it’s no surprise that many choose a Napa Valley wedding venue to exchange their vows.
Made up of the towns of American Canyon, Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga, Napa Valley offers visitors a wide assortment of boutique hotels and luxury resorts, storied vineyards, farm-fresh and Michelin-star restaurants, panoramic views and golden sunsets.
With a little bit of planning, Napa Valley offers couples both an unforgettable experience and a magazine worthy wedding. Many of the Napa wedding venues here offer full service wedding packages with on site catering and planning, which is a cost in addition to the venue’s site fee. Read on to learn more about some of my favorite Napa Valley wedding venues and which Napa wedding venue best fits your personal style and wedding vision.
