Choosing a Wedding Venue Worth Returning To
Updated: Mar 5
When Valentina and Fabio decided they wanted a private and intimate wine country wedding, they knew Carneros Resort and Spa was the perfect fit. The couple had a personal history with the venue, having visited and built romantic memories prior to their engagement. Their beautiful wedding went off without a hitch and added more wonderful memories that will forever be associated with the location. Having had the pleasure of documenting their wedding, I realized how important it is to choose a wedding venue worth returning to over the years.
One of the main reasons Carneros Resort and Spa is worth returning to is its natural beauty. Located in the picturesque Napa Valley, this venue offers a breathtaking backdrop of rolling hills and vineyards that is perfect for couples seeking a rustic and romantic atmosphere. The venue also boasts a selection of indoor and outdoor spaces that are perfect for intimate ceremonies, as well as amenities that will make an already special day even more memorable.
Napa Valley is renowned for its exceptional weather, making it an ideal location for weddings. You can typically expect warm, sunny days for your ceremony and reception, without worrying about rain or extreme temperatures. Valentina and Fabio caught one of the few days out of the year where clouds roll in, but it only elevated the experience. The dramatic sky, as seen in their wedding video never pushed to the point of rain.
Before the wedding, you and your partner can get ready in the private cottages, which are just a short walk or cart ride from the ceremony and reception sites. Your guests can also choose from a range of lodging options, including rooms, suites, or cottages, without having to worry about driving or finding transportation off-site after the reception. Valentina and Fabio had family coming from Italy to watch them tie the knot, so it was extremely beneficial that Carneros Resort and Spa offered so many welcoming amenities. Resort guests can look forward to the famous spa, pool, fitness center, and dining options.
Those who select Carneros Resort and Spa as their wedding venue will have the opportunity to return and reminisce about the special day for years to come. As you walk the property, you can relive your cherished experiences and recall the stunning scenery that made your day so special. Valentina and Fabio chose to preserve these memories in a short highlight film, which is now a cherished keepsake. Whenever the desire returns, the couple can revisit a location worth returning to and build more memories that will last a lifetime.
