Considering how many lovely California weddings we’ve featured over the years, you’d think we’ve had a chance to visit them all in real life. But up until last month, Carneros Resort and Spa in Napa Valley was still on the bucket list. Our Amanda took a birthday trip up the coast last month and couldn’t leave without stopping by to see all it had to offer.
To give you an idea of the weddings there, Jen Huang Photography shared this first set of lovely photos. The resort offers 15,000 square feet of inspiring indoor and outdoor space in a wine country setting for up to 175 people. And you’d never guess from the amount of space available on the property, but it’s actually a spectacular elopement spot, too! They have packages for elopements + small weddings for those on the lookout for a secluded location with wine country surroundings.
This backdrop alone!
There’s five different venues on the property to choose from, which we’ve listed out below.

Always helpful to see photos from a couple different weddings at the venue in question, right?
Amanda took advantage of the pool + spa, dining, and of course, all the scenery. Dreamy!
