A Magical Venue + Magical Staff Made for A Magical Wedding!
My husband and I were married at Viaggio on May 4, 2019 and the entire experience was an absolute dream. From the moment we stepped foot on the property, we fell in love. We first went to the tasting room while waiting for Larry to take us on our tour. And let me tell you, the wine was SO good and the tasting room staff made us feel welcome! Larry was a wonderful tour guide; he was very friendly and seemed excited to host our wedding. My husband and I were so impressed with the entire venue, and loved that it had a backup indoor option in case of rain, as well as a gorgeous on-site villa that you could stay at.
Viaggio was the very first venue we toured and honestly, we were ready to sign the contract right there on the spot. But I remember my husband and I kept thinking that we can’t just book the first venue we tour. Afterwards, we visited additional wineries in Northern/Central California (including one that was originally my “dream” venue). However, Viaggio set the gold standard for what we wanted, and none of the other venues we toured compared. Viaggio was the perfect choice! You get a beautiful ceremony lawn, a river, a cool tasting room in case the weather is a little warm, so many areas to sit, a swing hanging from the tree, plus lots of other photo props, and flowers growing EVERYWHERE (at least in May)! Our guests are STILL singing praises of the venue.
Aside from the beautiful grounds, one of the best things that came with the venue was our coordinating team: Angelina and Bayley. I am FOREVER grateful for their help in making our dream wedding come to life. They were able to answer any and all questions that we had (which were a lot), they were willing to work around my husband’s and my work schedule when it came to meetings, and I never had an issue getting a hold of them. They were constantly in contact with me, giving me updates, and sending me reminders when “wedding brain” would take over. Not only do they display great professionalism, but working with the two of them feels like working with your two best friends who are so excited to help you plan your wedding. They are so patient and accommodating and genuinely friendly that working with them was like a breath of fresh air in the craziness that comes with wedding planning. I honestly don’t think our wedding would have been as lovely and (mostly) stress-free if it wasn’t for them.
Another perk of this venue is the AMAZING Chef Bernard. Let me tell you, that man is a culinary genius. When we first toured the venue we ran into a couple that had just gotten married there. All they were raving about was the food. We thought “well maybe they’re coming off the wedding high, most wedding food is just okay”. We were wrong. At our dinner tasting I swear my husband and I were ready to lick our plates clean. EVERYTHING was delicious. We had a lot of compliments from the guests about the dinner, many agreeing that they were not expecting wedding food to taste so good!
If you’re in-between venues, or just needing a sign from the universe to pick Viaggio as your wedding venue, this is it. My guests were so impressed that to this day they’re convinced we hosted a 100k+ wedding, and let me tell you that we definitely didn’t even spend half of that. We had guests of various ages tell us that our wedding was THE best one they had ever been to in their lives and that the venue had completely blown them away. My husband and I love this place so much, that we visited almost every month leading up to the wedding. Not for wedding planning, but just to relax, have a picnic on the lawn, and just drink some damn good wine. THANK YOU to the entire Viaggio staff for having us and making our wedding day magical!

Viaggio is an amazing space to get married. I loved everyone who helped. Even the owner, Larry was there during our reception to celebrate with us! Stephanie (wedding coordinator) is wonderful! She was so beyond helpful with anything and everything that I needed help with. Due to weather issues this winter, we had to change the location of the wedding ceremony - Stephanie was right there for me with all kinds of ideas/help to make it a perfect day! I couldn't have asked for a better person to help with my special day. I will forever recommend Viaggio to all of my friends getting married in this area!Sent on 07/12/2017
