Has anyone been to a wedding or gotten married at Auberge du Soleil? I know Mrs. Pinot Noir got married there and I’ve looked at her photos, but I’m curious to hear any thoughts about the size of the space, dance floor, room for a band, etc. From the photos of the reception space, it looks like it might feel a little small (for a group of about 100) or the ceilings might feel a little low, but it’s hard to tell. Also, do the two rooms feel separated even with the doors open between them? Thanks!

- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
Mrs. Tomato also got married there, but she had a very small wedding.
She did say the food was excellent though!

I went to a wedding there last fall and it was really beautiful. They had just over 100 people and no dance floor (it was an afternoon wedding). I’m not sure there would be much room for one with that many people.
I don’t remember the ceilings being low, but there did seem to be a distinction between the two rooms, even with the door open. We were in the "second" room, and it was difficult to hear/see the toasts.
Overall a beautiful location and delicious food. 🙂

We considered getting married there, but it was too small to accommodate our 150 person wedding. For a group of 100, it would be too small to have seated dinner AND dance floor between the two rooms. Ceilings are not high – but not particularly low, either. Food is phenomenal there. You could maybe do dance floor and small band in the smaller room and then just seated dinner in the larger room, but I think it only seats 80 or so in the larger room?

I am getting married at Auberge du Soleil this fall. The ceilings are not high. However there is room to do a Hora (Jewish Dance)! There are two rooms. You can only have music in the larger Room (Vista I) I believe since the other room is under the restaurant and the noise would be disturbing to guests. Casey and her staff are amazing to work with so far. There are some restrictions but I think it contributes to the ambiance that the resort is trying to uphold.
I have some great pictures that I can show you if you want to see some ideas of the space. As well as a video.
From the looks of my a friend’s wedding who got married this July the two rooms can fit his 100 guests rather nicely and the dance would would allow for a 5 piece band. Remember it does cut into the actual dance floor. But then again it makes the whole space more intimate and makes the dance floor look full.
The usual table of 6-8 (I believe with a dance floor in the first room it could accomodate 42-64 ish? And fit another 60 in the 2nd room.
