Romantic Sonoma Wine Country Weddings

“Tops our list as the most romantic place to stay.” –Bride & Groom Magazine

What could be lovelier than a Wine Country wedding at a luxury inn? Big or small, formal or intimate – we’ve helped many couples tie the knot in style.

Weddings and Receptions are magical events here at Inn at Occidental. You may choose to hold your ceremony right here at the inn in our lush garden courtyard with fountain, or perhaps you would like to host your reception here after your ceremony at a nearby church or other venue. Next door to the inn is the Occidental Community Church, and two blocks north is the recently restored St. Phillip the Apostle Catholic church. If you would prefer an outdoor wedding, there are a variety of outdoor venues near the inn as well.

Planning a destination wedding in wine country? Rent the entire Inn and host both your ceremony and reception here. By renting the whole facility for your event, you’ll have access to our romantic Courtyard Garden, as well as the dining room, veranda, and outdoor patio, which can be used for a bar, dance area, or buffet.

Providing the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony or reception, the Courtyard accommodates 11 round tables to comfortably seat a maximum of 110 people. Little decoration is needed to enhance the natural beauty of the garden surrounding the Courtyard. A fountain in the center of the Courtyard provides an extra touch of old world romance. A dance floor can be set up in the southeast corner of the Courtyard. For chillier evenings, we recommend that you rent portable heaters. A tent that covers the whole courtyard can be rented, if there is a chance of inclement weather.

Vacation in Beautiful Sonoma County, California


Unspoiled pastoral countryside, dinner beside the California coast, and award-winning Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley wines – all in one county!

Sonoma County is the quintessential wine country — sophistication and class without the attitude and crowds. Here, rolling hills and peaceful country roads weave through family-owned vineyards as well as nationally known wineries. At 1,604 square miles, Sonoma County is much larger than neighboring Napa and offers more diverse activities to enjoy. Relaxed and personal, Sonoma lies closer to the sea and farther from the traffic.

The first home of wine production in Northern California, Sonoma County is also still the nation’s largest producer of quality wine. Distinct wine valleys dot the countryside — Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and the Valley of the Moon — each offering its own flavors and varietals, including many of the world’s best-known labels and appellations.

Most of Sonoma County’s 400+wineries are open to the public for tours and complimentary tastings.

Just an hour north of San Francisco, Sonoma Wine Country is an elegant, but unpretentious, vacation destination. The county’s unspoiled natural beauty — vineyards, towering old-growth redwoods, the Russian River, and the rugged California coastline — are just the beginning. A haven for artists, craftspeople, and chefs, Sonoma County offers so much more than exceptional wine. During your Sonoma Wine Country vacation, visit enjoy shopping in local art galleries, shops, and boutiques, pamper yourself with a massage or spa treatment, and experience some of the best dining in the country.
