Tucked away in the vineyard hills of Napa Valley is the gorgeous Beaulieu Garden. With subtle notes of French charm but unmistakable Californian warmth, this cozy setting is the perfect backdrop for your intimate gathering. Located in the town of Rutherford in Napa Valley, this 100-acre property is a jewel of a wedding venue. Beaulieu Garden weddings have a level of sophistication and refinement that you might see in European cities. Beaulieu Garden offers a level of refinement and the ability to design once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
When you enter Beaulieu Garden, you are immediately immersed in vineyards and oak trees. A wrought-iron gate, surrounded by Italian cypress trees, opens to a tree-lined driveway of over 100 sycamore trees. This makes for an epic entrance for you and a stunning experience for your guests!
Beaulieu Garden is a privately owned, family estate and one of the oldest wine-producing vineyards in Napa Valley. The venue offers so many beautiful features and areas to host your ceremony and reception. The beautiful grounds feature reflecting pools, elegant statues, stone fountains, sycamore arbor, and gorgeous gardens. The facility holds 375 seated or 400 standing guests outdoors. Here are just some of our favorite spots within the venue:
This section follows a formal Italian design using a circular large water fountain, English yew trees, magnolia tree, tree roses, and English boxwood with topiary figures, beautiful dogwood, daphne, and climbing roses adjacent to a tennis court. Perfect for a wedding reception!
The beautiful arbor was designed by Thomas Dolliver Church and mirrors a classic European-themed space. It is one of the oldest and largest arbors in the United States. Forty-eight sycamore trees were planted in the early 1920s to resemble European cities providing a wonderful shady canopy for entertaining during the year. This sits next to a swimming pool and large lawn and is the perfect place to host a reception.
Roses, English boxwood, yew trees, and jasmine make up this multi-level landscape design area also by Thomas Dolliver Church. The theme includes a European pool with lily pads, a cherub fountain, balustrades holding up additional cherubim, and an antique sundial.
Even more, when you have your wedding at Beaulieu Garden, you don’t just get a beautiful venue-you also get one of the best caterers in the country. Paula LeDuc Fine Catering & Events is an award-winning culinary team that produces the very best parties (celebrity clients like Oprah can attest to this).
