We were married at Calistoga Ranch in August 2014 and it was incredible. We fell in love with Calistoga Ranch during our site visit and can't imagine a better place to get married.

Laura Vaughan, who manages weddings at Calistoga Ranch, was wonderful to work with during the planning process. She worked closely with our wedding planner (Meren Dehaze from A Savvy Event) and both of them handled many of the logistics behind the scenes. We even threw them a curve ball by switching the ceremony site a few weeks before the wedding and they made it happen!

On our wedding day, Laura made sure everything went smoothly. She checked in with us multiple times during the day and personally drove me around the resort on a golf cart so I have no idea how she was able to coordinate everything! We had our ceremony and dinner on the lawn and ur cocktail hour and reception in the wine cave. This required lots of organization but everything went smoothly and we were able to have the best of both worlds - an al fresco dinner and a true wine country reception!

Our guest have told us repeatedly how amazing the food was. We discussed several different options with the chef during our menu tasting and asked him to create dishes that he thought would work best with the freshest ingredients possible. He did a wonderful job!

One thing that may be a positive or negative is that there is very limited cell phone reception at the resort. This was not a problem for us since Meren and Laura handled many of the logistics but may be something to consider.

We and several of our guests stayed at Calistoga Ranch and everyone commented on how beautiful the lodges were. The beds were so comfortable and the outdoor showers were fantastic.

All of the staff at Calistoga Ranch were incredible - we thank everyone for making our wedding day unforgettable. We can't wait to return for our anniversary!

We had been in correspondence with some of the loveliest wedding venues in Napa but Laura's (the event manager at Calistoga Ranch) professionalism, knowledge, attentiveness, flexibility and friendly demeanor significantly out shinned all others. Throughout the planning process we were extremely impressed with Laura's responsiveness and expertise. She was diligent in responding to any and every little question or request we had and has an impeccable ability to chime in when appropriate. Laura is exactly the type of person you want to have by your side when planning such an event. Our wedding was in April 2014 and the property was so beautiful and abundant with blooms of all shades. We held our ceremony and cocktail hour on the Lommel Lawn overlooking the breathtaking scenery, and our dinner reception was held in the wine cave which was glowing with warm candle light. Every service and detail we had discussed over the 10 months of planning was expertly executed and placed. Each event (the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception) was more beautiful than we had dreamed of and was seamlessly orchestrated from beginning to end. The service was impeccable; we and each of our guests were greatly cared for throughout the entire day. The Food was excellent (and we are tough critics). We had the unique experience of sitting with the CR's Chef who had encouraged us to share our favorite foods and ingredients. The end results were a personalized menu for our wedding that reflected our tastes and style (fresh, organic and local produce). It was a delicious culinary feast! Our wedding was even more magical and carefree than we could have hoped for because of Laura, her excellent team at Calistoga Ranch, and the amazing vendors we had supporting us. The natural eloquence of the scenery, understated sophistication, excellent food and impeccable service has given us, and all our loved ones who attended, such a rich moment to revisit for a lifetime.

I would give Calistoga Ranch a 5 star if I had Laura as my event coordinator since day 1. I signed the contract with Calistoga Ranch back in June 2011 for my wedding in June 2012. Between the 1 year time frame, they swapped event manager multiple times and I had to work with 3 different people. It was difficult because I had to re-tell everything to each person since the notes the first person took was not great. There was A LOT of organizing and coordination on my end, more than a bride should be doing given the very high prices at Calistoga Ranch.

About 1 month prior to our wedding, they finally settled on Laura as the event manager, and she was great! She provided excellent service, prompt communication, and I could tell she was a very professional and considerate person to work with. My wedding turned out great thanks to Laura. I just wish I only have to deal with Laura from the beginning.

The only downside is that the requirement for getting married here is a 2 night stay, where most of the other resorts require only one night. Given the prices of accommodation here, it does make a big different in terms of budget since you would probably have your entire immediate family stay with you ( like what we did) at Calistoga Ranch. Just be sure to include that in your budget since it makes quite a difference!

If I could afford it I would celebrate my wedding anniversary here EVERY year!

We got married on the lawn, amazing views - everyone was blown away. Then had cocktails - they made us a specialty drink that was so good! Golf carted our guests to the wine cave. Hubby was nervous when we did the wine cave would be too dark at first, but our florist and lighting vendors did their magic, and the place was gorgeous!

We picked The Calistoga Ranch not only because of the beauty of the grounds, but the amazing food. Chef was amazing to work with and made some changes based on our guests, and our 'favorite' foods. People always tell me that they never get to eat their food on during their wedding - but not me! I enjoyed every course! We also had them do the cake, which was such a good decision. It was the bet tasting wedding cake I have ever had - moist, fresh and decor was simple, but elegant (again thanks to florist).
