Woman Getting Married Says:
Who doesn’t dream of getting married in Napa? This hotel is one of the best in the area, and a wedding here would be amazing. I would keep the guest list on the smaller side (under 125…I would even consider getting it down to 80) to take full advantage of the space and make it as intimate as possible. One note is to expect the Food & Beverage cost per person ($225) to easily go above the minimum once you start customizing the menu. Napa–especially 5-star resorts such as this one–don’t come cheap (though if you have the pennies, they are worth every one)!
