What could be a better place to start your happily ever after than in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country? Healdsburg is a world-class destination for weddings, whether your style is elegant, rustic, bohemian or a little bit country! The area is ripe with gorgeous photography backdrops, incredible food and wine, as well as all the resources you need to make your day extra special.
If you’re planning a large wedding for a future date or are looking for an intimate spot for a trendy “minimony” now, there are a variety of lovely venues offering a selection of packages to accommodate both small and eventually larger celebrations.
Healdsburg boasts a variety of unique properties that give couples beautiful options for places to stay – as well as say “I do.” The River Belle Inn provides a riverside setting for your nuptials, beside the historic 1875 property. Ru’s Farm is cocooned by rolling hills in the heart of Sonoma farm country, Ru’s Farm embodies rustic chic: with their estate vineyards, magnificent 1902 barn and rose, lavender and rosemary gardens, all shaded by a 100-year-old majestic cork oak tree, play host to innumerable events and weddings, year-round. Wedding dinners are prepared using locally grown produce—think tomatoes, pulled from the vine a couple of hours earlier and still warm from the sun—paired with Ru’s Farm wine, poured from charming, instagram-ready growlers. Two classic farm cottages onsite offer laid-back, elegant lodgings both for events and private escapes, steps from the barn and gardens.
The brand-new Montage Healdsburg, nestled among more than 250 acres of rolling vineyards and oak groves, has options for intimate ceremonies or, eventually, larger gatherings. Both the indoor and outdoor venues are inspired by nature and guests will enjoy creative, terroir-to-table and seasonally inspired menus. The modern Duchamp Healdsburg is a private oasis in the heart of downtown that is a lovely home base for your bridal party or a gorgeous wedding venue. The property’s six exclusive suites, 50’ swimming pool and spa deliver an unmatched luxury experience and The Grove is a dazzling place to take your vows.
Thunderbird Ranch’s landscape of open pastures, majestic oak trees and a classic barn mixes wine country style with rustic elegance. Whether you are looking for a formal dining experience or a laid-back BBQ, Thunderbird Ranch can fit the vision for your special day. The Ranch at Lake Sonoma’s ceremony space overlooks Lake Sonoma and is complete with a redwood barn. You can even include horseback rides in your wedding program. Villa Chanticleer, located atop Fitch Mountain, offers unparalleled views of wine country surrounded by groves of redwoods and old growth oaks.
Nothing says wine country wedding more than a wedding at a winery. Seghesio Family Vineyards has several indoor and outdoor venues where you and your guests can be surrounded by the gorgeous Sonoma landscapes or the winery’s stately cellar. Simi Winery’s storybook setting will look beautiful in your wedding album – a canopy of redwoods, historic stone cellars, flowering vines. Enjoy Arista Winery’s estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to toast the new couple! The family owned winery’s natural beauty offers several wedding and reception places to choose from including the tasting room, outdoor deck, Japanese gardens and Oak Grove – all surrounded by stunning vineyards.
Barndiva’s stunning garden is made for celebrations! The setting accommodates receptions, rehearsal dinners and day after brunches. The restaurant’s sustainable menu showcased the bounty of Sonoma County’s ranches and farms.
Many businesses throughout the city are equipped to make sure every detail is handled. There are a variety of hotels and rental properties that will make your guests feel at home. From florists and bakers to photographers and makeup artists and everything in between, Healdsburg has you covered.
