**edited: Sorry I think the suggestions I had made are for larger weddings! Auberge du Soleil may still be worth looking into. But in any case, I’m sure you’ll find something gorgeous up there. Seriously one of my favorite places in the whole world. 🙂

Enchantingelopements.com and Napavalleyweddings.com might be helpful sites. 

I like the Hans Fahden elopements and weddings in particular. I’ve never been there, but I do like looking at the weddings and elopements that have taken place there. 

Anyway, I hope the sites are of some help to you.

ETA: the weddings and elopements I’ve looked at are on YouTube.

Do you want to have the ceremony and reception in one place, or are you open to holding the reception at a restaurant?

hillputaringonit :  Napa proper has VERY few wineries that allow weddings due to a ton of restrictions, but as you mentioned, Calistoga and St. Helena are gorgeous choices!

hillputaringonit :  Obviously getting married in Napa, see username 🙂 

I live in the Bay Area so it’s not so much a destination wedding for me, but it’s definitely not super close to home either. We are getting married at Silverado Resort, and we are having a big wedding, but I believe they have some smaller venues at the resort as well too. So far my experience with them has been good! We visited the Vintage Estate in Yountville, and it was not quite for us, but beautiful! Otherwise would definitely look into the smaller winery venues there as you’re doing. 

Our photographer is based in Marin and called Elle Jae – they are wonderful! I’d definitely recommend them.

We looked at runawaywithme.com in Napa when we were wedding planning (ended up getting married elsewhere though).  Their events look so beautifully styled, and they take care of everything.  It had a bit of a price tag though – I think 20 guests were going to run us about $20K CDN before travel expenses (lousy US-CDN exchange rate! I think it was about $15K USD at the time).  We had also considered Hans Fahden and Meritage.

And kellykapoor’s right – very few wineries will actually host weddings!  But what a beautiful place to get married in 🙂
