The Napa Valley is one of the hottest wedding destinations in the United States.
Perhaps it’s because it is the food and wine capital of America. Or maybe it’s the beauty of the lush vineyards and historical estates. Or it could be its location just 45 miles north of San Francisco. Whatever the reason, the fact is: It is also exclusive and expensive.
The average “Napa Valley Wedding” will cost from $35,000 to $40,000. And that’s just for the wedding venue, rentals, catering, the officiant, photographer, music, the cake and flowers. It does NOT include the wedding planner, lodging, transportation and details like wine, and linens.
Think you’ll just pop into one of the 450 Napa Valley wineries and plan the blessed event yourself? Here’s a dose of reality: There are only 5 wineries in all of Napa County that are allowed to host weddings. As you can imagine, they are booked WAY in advance. Also they are at least 30 minutes from Napa city where the majority of lodging and restaurants are located.
But do not fear, there is an affordable luxury alternative, which has been hosting wonderful weddings for over 35 years: The Beazley House.
From grand affairs to intimate gatherings to private elopements, the Beazley House with its 114 years-old mansion and elegant English gardens offers perfection and memories.
And Sonja Beazley Burch, a professional weddings and events planner can help make the dozens and dozens of details come together so you can enjoy your day. Everything from your wedding license, to picking the officiant, to the “just right” linens for your rented tables and chairs, to catering and wines, the photographer, musicians, local florists, and even the baker for your wedding cake.
She’ll meet with you to plan your event in the Beazley House mansion or gardens, help you pick the professionals she has worked with over the years. And she will be with you on your day to assure all of the pieces fit to perfection.
