FIVE Exciting Sonoma Wine Country Wedding Venues With Vineyard Views

The Sonoma wine country is considered the 2nd favorite wedding destination in the United States.

Living in this region I have enjoyed location reviews, evening events, weddings and receptions at some of these inspiring venues. This brings me to write about the Sonoma Wine Country.  The region provides expert wedding professionals, a variety of wineries, vineyard view settings, food and wine pairing chefs that all combine to bring you years of experience. This area is known for producing great wedding celebrations for local brides and continues to bring destination wedding groups, eloping couples, and honeymooners into the vineyards.  Well known for world class wines, some of the vintners offer their locations for weddings and events. You will find a summary of the known sites on

The vineyard and winery venues are booked out over a 18 month period on Saturdays, but couples find they can plan a Friday, Sunday or mid-week celebration. This is one of the most romantic experiences the engaged couple, wedding couple and your guests will savor and remember for years to come.

Venues are designed  with the elegance of Old Italy to art filled modern and Spanish Style settings. The vineyards often have lovely gardens, barns, wine tasting rooms and tent sites as the backdrop of your wedding celebration.  Historic mansions and elegant Victorian Inns provide couples with uniqueness to their wedding backdrop.  The region enjoys beautiful sunsets and awesome moon rises over the hills.

The Victorian Inns are found nestled in the vineyards or perched on hillsides overlooking the wine country. Brides who enjoy the Vintage Style Wedding will find many settings in Sonoma County with lovely gardens and romantic rooms for your honeymoon or wedding guests.

Along with award winning wines, the area provides breathtaking views. Many of the wineries offer spectacular perches and unique settings for your ceremony.  The autumn colors enhance your back drops with our extended warm fall season. The region often enjoys 70 degree days into late October.

Plan Wedding Music In San Francisco, Los Angeles To Washington DC

Photo by; 
Couples have a way of saying, “I will cut costs in some areas and spend my funds on what we believe to be the things we want most on our wedding day.”  Good for you!!! This is the best way to have the wedding of your dreams

Many of the couples set great music as a priority.
                                                             Photo by
It is part of their heart and soul and it would not be a wedding without it.  Here are a few great pointers regarding planning your music for the wedding & reception:

Many of the musicians’ websites have a list and sometimes you can listen to them play or watch their YouTube videos. You will find a MUSIC LIST  in the ARTICLES area. Find favorite traditional musical pieces often played at wedding ceremonies, pop to classical, show tunes and selections for country to rock favorites. You can also find expert musicians in California, The USA & worldwide from this website.  
                                                         Photo by
Popular instruments for ceremonies are; harps, violins, trumpets, mariachi, piano, flute and guitar are all great mood setters. We see soloist, quartets, audiences singing and choirs. Disc jockeys can play all of those chosen.  When working with a soloist or musician it is important to get the music to them a month ahead if they do not have the piece in their file.
For the Ceremony there are five areas where couples specifically ask for music.  Those pieces chosen will set the mood of your ceremony for your guests. 
  1. Several numbers as guests are seated
  2. Walking the groom’s mother down the aisle.
  3. Solo after the groomsmen appear or after both mothers are seated
  4. The bride & bridesmaid processional toward the ceremony
  5. The recessional as Mr. & Mrs.

                                                        Photo by JR Moore

For Receptions, the music is considered in five parts:
  1. Soft ballads and low level sound so people can talk and visit while eating.
  2. The second part is for the newly wed’s first dance
  3. The third, is key to getting father - daughter, mother - son up on the floor
  4. Then the wedding party up to dance and bring others onto the dance floor
  5. Finally bring the guests up to dance – Sometimes these are group-style dances like the Merungue, Hava Nagila, Congo Line, YMCA and some of the newer fun dances. Talk this over with the entertainer you have booked.
While your favorite style might be hard rock or Caribbean steel bands, you will find your guest dwindling in the room - as the older set will begin to leave (who may also love to dance, but not to that specific music).  For best results in keeping your wedding guests longer, ask your DJ or band to mix it up with songs from a few generations.

Elope To California - Ten Same Day Wedding Areas

                                                               Photo From

Planning an elopement is considered a last minute decision. An elopement is for two people, a small destination group is the couple with friends or family - planned ahead. There are several things to consider when planning either:

  1. Whether the state or country where you are planning your elopement offers a same day marriage license.  Check with them to find out what legal papers you need to gain a license.  Most marriage bureaus are open Monday through Friday from 9:am to noon or 5:pm on Fridays, but it is best to call and check.  
  2. You will require a licensed wedding officiant.  
  3. Marriage Laws require you bring proper documentation of who you are, your divorce certificate - if previously married and it is suggested you call the local bureau or check their website for specific rulings. California is known for gaining your marriage license in a local California city, and bringing it with you to your chosen California wedding location. It is best to check the local rulings of the county/city where you plan to be wed by phoning ahead.
  4. Wedding officiants may also specialize in knowledge of the region you are traveling too.
  5. There are wedding coordinators that specialize in elopements for two, the ceremonies for renewing your vows and can recommend or book your time for marriage license and honeymoon arrangements in their region.
  6. It is suggested you arrive on Friday early to gain your marriage license by noon, enjoy your ceremony and have the weekend or more for your honeymoon.
