Small in a Big Way

Just because you plan to aim for small in size doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice going big on luxury. If you are looking to go all out on a more intimate scale, consider a small ceremony with a spectacular backdrop at one of Napa Valley’s most iconic resorts. Many of our resorts have recently renovated their event spaces, creating new outdoor spaces perfect for smaller groups. A few favorites include:
