In Napa and Sonoma, you will come across some very beautiful venues but we did our homework and Carneros Inn has it all- stunning scenery, beautiful amenities and incredible team members (Elizabeth and her team member Natalie who assisted day of). Also, a good on site coordinator can make or break your day. Elizabeth has been in Napa for a while and knew TONS of great vendors (as well as some horror stories). She was our inside woman since we live in SF and I only run events in SF, NY, LA and have minimal experience in wine country.
Our stay at Carneros during the wedding and the days following: They bent over backwards and sent us lovely amenities during our stay! My husband and I joked that every time we left our suite, we would come back to more sparkling wine or other delicious treats. Oh yeah, they upgraded us to an INCREDIBLE suite and even let us add one more day to our stay. Everything was top notch!
Overall, the best part about the Carneros Inn was the staff (especially the complimentary month of wedding planner, Elizabeth Harris). Over a year and a half of wedding planning I interacted with a lot of folks in the wedding industry and Elizabeth was by far the most competent, organized, professional, efficient, knowledgeable and altogether lovely one out there. She was always quick to follow-up on questions, thorough with her answers, understanding of restrictions and supportive throughout. For instance, a month before my wedding I received a call from my furniture vendor that all of my cocktail rentals were ruined at another wedding. Given I was getting married in June in Napa, there was no inventory left throughout the area, but Elizabeth helped me fix the situation in less than a week! On the day of there were a few minor disasters and Elizabeth was so good at her job that I did not know about one of them (until weeks later). She was amazing and blocking and tackling and making sure I was having the best day
