Create the beginning of your marriage in a world of your own. Byington offers a stunning 100-acre, wine-experience getaway situated on our grand estate with manicured lawns, expansive views of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Monterey Bay, and 6 acres of our Pinot Noir Vineyard. Byington's attentive staff, grand faciliites, wonderful wines, and superior catering partners combine to make your wedding a unique wine, winery, and vineyard experience.

Byington aims to develop a relationship with you before, during, and after your Wedding and takes an integrated wine-experience approach. The team you work with is expert not only in Weddings but also wines, vineyard management, and wine making. Following a tour of the faciities, Byington invites you to sample our wines. If you choose to marry at Byington, in addition to providing regular updates, bridal couples are offered two private, complimentary events: 1) meet Byington's Wine Maker for a barrel tasting and overview of the recent harvest, and 2) enjoy a Wine Tour & Tasting for up to 20 guests.

Multiple facilities are available for a Wedding. As a highlight, for Weddings beyond 100 guests, we offer our Cave Patio. Following your Ceremony at Wedding Hill and Wine Reception in our VIP Room, your guests are escorted to this newly created space. It affords an amphitheater-style view of the Vineyard as guests descend a private path amongst Redwood Trees. With a backdrop of grand doors of our Wine Cave, the Bride and Groom alone take a private path through the Cave for a grand entrance to greet guests. Following dinner, retreat to the Barrel Room for dancing and the VIP Room for mingling.

Tasting Room is open to the public Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm. Bridal couples are invited to schedule a tour of facilities at any time by calling or book a tour from the Byington website Weddings page. Couples are invited to join the Wine Club to receive a 25% discount on wine purchases of a case or more. Read less

My husband and I chose Byington Vineyard & Winery for our wedding venue and it was by far and away one of the best choices we made for that day. Because the truth is, you can hire amazing vendors to fill in the gaps and make everything beautiful (which we did and they were truly awesome) but if the wedding venue itself isn't too glorious, well, then neither is the setting in general -- unless you want to hire David Tutera to bring in a whole garden and entourage of stylists for you!

But luckily, Byington was stand-alone beautiful. And as super gorgeous fairy-tale reminiscent wedding venues go, this one was actually relatively affordable -- which is awesome since your package comes with day-of wedding coordinators who help facilitate the organization of all of the vendors you hire to bring in food, decor, etc.

Still, what is even cooler: we had the entire run of the winery -- everything was our oyster: the wine cave, the VIP suite, the barrel room, the wedding hill, the grounds & vineyard. We got all of this for our guests to roam and enjoy during our wedding day with no outside guests! Importantly, Byington does NOT have more than one event at a time, unlike many other venues that have the gall to charge more money for LESS spectacular views!

But I digress. On the topic of coordinators, there were two (Victoria and Debbie) and both ladies were very patient and helpful with my questions and concerns while I planned my wedding this past year. Notably, since I was my own wedding planner, I was practically stalking these two with random questions! As such, I couldn't be happier with how well they responded to me and how everything came together on the day of the wedding without me having to take the reins in any way. Yes, even though I didn't have a bona fide wedding planner other than myself, I was actually able to let go of control during the final week -- at which point Victoria became my wedding CEO.

And let me tell you: for someone as picky as me, it is super difficult to surpass my expectations. To my delight, this is exactly what happened: all of my vendors were able to do their work seamlessly because of the organization of Byington's day-of coordinators. The end result? Something that actually resembled a David Tutera wedding. Moreover, they even helped with wedding processional timing in addition to helping me as I ascended the stairs to walk down the aisle on 'wedding hill'.

From when I finished getting ready in the bridal suite, to the ceremony, to the reception and beyond, everything was completely magical. So magical, that my husband and I were nearly heart-broken when it was over and thus lingered on the balcony veranda after all of the guests had left. Driving away from our wedding, we knew that we had formed a great attachment to that place. As you can imagine, we will certainly visit again -- if only for a glass of wine and a magical view.

If you end up choosing Byington for your wedding, you can no doubt expect a truly inspiring, romantic, and enchanted evening!

Our location was amazing and very beautiful during our wedding. It was a bit hot during our July evening ceremony but the when the sun was setting it was nice, cool, private and beautiful. Pricey with the wine but they let us bring some cases of beer to help with cost.

Byington was a beautiful venue and we were so thrilled to have our wedding there. They coordinate the event and recommend very good vendors, so we didn't need a wedding planner. The wedding is usually out on the hill, but if if rains (as happened to us), there's a very cozy indoor option. They're on the pricey side, but if you're looking for a winery setting, they were great and I'd highly recommend.

One negative is you have to be out of there by 10pm, so if you're interested in having a wild dance party, this is not your place. Also, you have to buy their wine to serve.

Beautiful venue. They do a lot of weddings here so they know what they are doing. I had a wedding planner, but they also provide a day-of coordinator to help. There is a nice bridal suite for getting ready and plenty of beautiful spots for pictures. The room is somewhat small, so it wouldn't work for bigger weddings, and of course you have to buy their wine. No hard alcohol allowed. But the wine is great and I would recommend the venue.
