When your wine country wedding involves a Sycamore arbor, chandeliers sparkling under the moonlight, vineyard views, and beautiful sunken gardens, you know you’ve done a few things right. Go ahead and pour a glass of California sparkling before you read on, because this Beaulieu Garden wedding hit all the wine country wedding goals we could come up with and we have a feeling you’re going to want to toast to this special occasion.

With Jose Villa (perfectly) capturing the event, Shannon Leahy Events heading up the planning, and Atelier Joya designing this Napa Valley wedding, it was easy for this couple to expect absolutely stunning wedding photos. Not only did they hire a dream team to ensure a gorgeous and timeless wedding, but they also chose to celebrate at one of wine country’s most beautiful private estates.

REPORTER: Alyssa Brown


Tuscan villa weddings never cease to inspire. There’s something so magical about that fragrant Italian air, the rich history, and the gorgeous architecture. And Italians seem to host weddings with such an air of simplicity, like it’s no big deal to host a dinner party for fifty or sixty people outdoors, under the clear Tuscan sky. Sara and Patrick’s wedding at Villa Catureglio has us all in total fantasy land over here, what with the Chestnut hunt in the mountains, vineyard tours, and the gorgeous meals they celebrated with.

Sara and Patrick recently filled us in on all the details of their wedding planning from afar. They worked with the creative and brilliant duo, Elyse and Katie, at BW Theory in Austin to make all their great ideas into a reality.

REPORTER: Jake Kilroy

There are few dinner parties you know you’ll remember for the rest of your life. For those treated to a particularly special night lit by twinkle lights, in the back of a vintage pick-up truck, set in the midst of a vineyard, this would be one of them. Thank goodness it was photographed. Out among the vineyards of the Central Coast of California, dressed to the nines in denim, friends came together to have a conversation. They arrived on motorcycles and an acoustic guitar was never far out of reach. The afternoon social rolled into the evening, losing time but never losing speed. Over a spread even the Lost Generation would've written home about, they laughed, toasted, and celebrated all they had to offer each other at their dinner party.

Beneath bistro lights, amid candles, they drank red wine and waxed poetic, and honestly made all of us at the Venue Report quite envious. We had to know more about such a lovely release party for Crawford Denim’s Vinter’s Shirt inspired in collaboration with Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wines. So we brought up the stunning, spectacular event, art directed & designed by Rachael Ann Lunghi of Lace & Likes, with Susie Shaugnessy, owner and designer of Crawford Denim & Vintage Co, and couldn’t stop asking questions.

There are moments that capture your heart, give it pause, and allow you to admit to yourself that not everyone is lucky enough to be where you are and have your life. Overlooking the sea while sipping a cocktail, surrounded by vineyards, mountains, and olive orchards, with your luxury tent behind you is almost assuredly one of those instances. That’s one of the (very many) reasons people adore a glamping stay at Cabañas Cuatro Cuatros.

Rustic Country
Rolling Vineyards and Big trees
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

In the middle of a gorgeous meadow, just 90 minutes outside Chicago, sits this beautifully rustic 19th century barn. Inside, sunlight peeks through the mile-high slatted rooftop and onto the massive old wood beam supports below. It’s the kind of setting where celebrating comes easily, where wine seems abundant, and where dancing should be a requirement.

This countryside venue is as romantic as it is rustic, with the option of getting married under a magnificent old tree or opting for the backdrop of vineyards or grassy meadows. A cool cocktail hour could take place out on the lawns, or you can set out some cute lounge vignettes and cozy up to the big ole barn’s giant front porch. Dinner and dancing in the barn easily fits about 150 guests, and we highly recommend choosing your guests based on their ability to dance in cowboy boots.
