Hi everyone! I recently got engaged (yay!!) and I’m trying to find a venue for a small wedding next Spring/Summer in Northern California. We are only going to have about 25 people so it’s amost an elopement. We want to find somewhere surrounded by nature and affordable but still beautiful and elegant. I am in love with Calistoga Ranch but it’s out of my price range! Any suggestions for intimate wedding venues? Tahoe? Wine Country? I’m finding this venue search overwhelming because there are too many options. I need help narrowing things down.

What’s a reasonable price for you to pay, and are you looking for all-inclusives or DIY or a combination of both?
I helped a friend in your area plan last year, and so I have heaps of notes

Thank you for replying! I would like to keep our total wedding budget under $10,000 including dress, venue, dinner & drinks for everyone…etc. I love the idea of all inclusive but I would be open to some DIY.

Try Brix in Napa. They do the ceremony in the vineyard and have lot of options for the reception. They do the catering out of their own restaurant and the food and drink minimums are really reasonable. Plus they have gardens, a private cottage, etc.
