Napa Valley. The land of beyond breathtaking scenery, glorious vineyards and drop-dead gorgeous weddings. And also home to one of our all-time favorite hotels, River Terrace Inn. This pretty little Napa paradise partners with some of the finest vineyards in the Valley and boasts 400-year-old oak trees, beautiful rose gardens and flowing fields of lavender – all set against a stunning estate built in 1928 by silent film star (and DuPont heiress), Lenore Sterns. If that isn’t the recipe for a glamorous, show-stopping Napa Valley wedding, then I don’t know what is.
With the guidance of River Terrace Inn, you’re not just tying the knot in one of the world’s most beautiful locations, you’re throwing a wedding weekend that will amaze you AND your guests. Cozy on up in one of the River Terrace Inn’s luxurious rooms, hold your wedding at one of their fabulous partner vineyards (like the O’Connell Family Vineyards) and bid adieu to the festivities with a brunch at their ever-wonderful restaurant, Cuvee. I’m talking delicious farm-to-table catering with locally grown organic dishes and personalized menus for each and every couple that pair oh-so-perfectly with the amazing wines from the Gabrielle Collection. And don’t forget to treat your nearest and dearest to a welcome basket or favor filled to the brim with fabulous bath and body products produced right on site. Gorgeous views, yummy food and one VERY magical weekend – this is a Napa experience you won’t soon forget.
