Our wedding was absolutely amazing at Paradise. Martha and her team were extremely impressive with their responsiveness and their professionalism. All of our guests were blown away with the ceremony and the views here and we are still hearing about how much they loved everything about this venue. Couldn't have had a better wedding!

My partner and I just had our wedding at Paradise Ridge two weeks ago and it was so amazing, we wish we could do it again. Martha and her team were wonderful to work with prior to the wedding – they were so patient and accommodating of all of my (millions of) questions and requests over email. They always responded promptly and on the day of they provided everything they had promised, from the specific types of beer we requested to every little decorative detail. Getting married at Paradise Ridge was like a dream. It is such a beautiful venue – and then to have everything happen without a hitch was pretty remarkable. (We also used Ali DiLuvio as our day-of coordinator and we highly recommend her!) We were disappointed initially because the winery can’t serve hard alcohol (per their license), but we found that our guests were happy nonetheless and everyone still got reasonably intoxicated ☺ The price is very reasonable, the staff are wonderful, and the view is unbelievable.

Paradise Ridge was a beautiful venue for our elopement! The weather was perfect, and they allowed us all over the property to select the perfect spot for the ceremony and pictures. The PR staff was super friendly - even for our small elopement ceremony, everyone from the bartenders to the owners offered their congratulations. PR is an amazing place, looking forward to visiting again from Ohio.

This actually IS Paradise!
When we were planning our destination wedding, we never imagined we would come across a venue like this. We knew we wanted something we couldn't get in Chicago, but this was amazing. The view, alone, is breathtaking. But the layout and staff were the icing on the cake. Martha was so incredible to work with and made for easy and simple planning. We were able to try the wine before selecting and we were so pleased with everything we selected. Our guests were so amazed at how beautiful everything was. We were all able to enjoy the scenery of the day, the sunset, and the glory of the lights at night. It doesn't get much better than this!!
Thank you Paradise Ridge for a beautiful wedding!

There were moments while planning for our wedding that we doubted our decisions on some of our vendors, our guest list, our budget...the list goes on. The one decision we never doubted was choosing to have our wedding at Paradise Ridge Winery. We came to California from New York to browse venues in wine country and the first place we visited was Paradise Ridge. After that, everything paled by comparison and despite looking at 5 other venues in person, we just kept coming back to Paradise Ridge. From the view of the vineyards to the intimate feel of the ballroom to the gorgeous terrace and deck, it was too perfect to pass up.

What made it even better was that Martha, the event manager, was a pleasure to work with. Responsive, professional, and genuinely excited to be part of our day, she was extremely helpful and the perfect breath of fresh air and energy during the planning stages.

Our vision came alive on our wedding day and it was just as beautiful as we imagined, if not more. Our guests were blown away by the scenery and overall vibe of the winery, and so were we. Thank you to the whole staff at the venue. We couldn't be happier with our experience at Paradise!

Best Venue Ever!!! Such a beautiful venue. My out of towners were blown away. I was looking to create a vintage style wedding in my hometown and wanted a venue that would not only give my out-of-towners something to remember, a preview of what wine country has to offer...after all they were spending a pretty penny to travel to Santa Rosa, CA from the east coast and this trip was considered their only summer vacation for most!!! Paradise Ridge Winery was perfect, the setting was gorgeous and the view was amazing. By night fall the lights of my hometown lit up the sky and added to a magical night! The staff was great! Martha was amazing. She was very responsive and accommodating and did everything she could to make the night one to remember! My guests still talk about how beautiful the venue was! Thank you Paradise Ridge!!!!! Love Beth & Jeff

We got married here April 2013. It is a beautiful location for a sunset wedding! We were bathed in warm golden sunlight during the ceremony and surrounded by rolling green hills and vineyards. In the evening the city lights shimmered in the background. My guests said it was breathtaking. As a bride from Canada, all the planning was done remotely and all went smoothly and beautifully!

~ Pricing: There's an off-season discount from Nov-Apr. In addition to the seasonal discount, there is a substantial discount for weekday weddings. For a destination wedding, we didn't mind having the wedding on the Monday as most of us were already on vacation!

~ Rental: The rental included the outdoor terrace (ceremony), the tasting room with the gorgeous chandeliers (reception), the deck with the beautiful views (cocktail hour), banquet chairs for the ceremony (we thought these looked like 80's conference chairs and rented white folding chair through the caterer instead), and chiavari chairs for the reception. It also came with 2 wine barrels perfect for big floral arrangements. The trees on the terrace are decorated with twinkle lights year round, which added an extra sparkle to the reception. The cellar is available as an indoor ceremony alternative. It has a cozy, but almost homely feel to it. With the stunning views it would have been disappointing if we had to use the cellar for an indoor wedding. The bride room is also small and was probably converted from an office, but a good space to store the decorations and favors the day before the wedding.

~ Wedding Coordinator: Martha, the wedding/event coordinator, did not mind answering all my emails. If you need an immediate answer the best way to reach her is to call. I hit a few snags with the insurance and Martha was very helpful. One thing to note, she is not the day-of coordinator, so you will need to hire /assign your own day-of wedding coordinator to make sure someone gets you down the aisle!

I got married at Paradise Ridge in mid-March and it was great! This location is so beautiful! It was a somewhat cloudy/rainy day on our wedding day, which made for really excellent photos! The indoor ceremony location by the fireplace was just as wonderful as if we had been able to have it outdoors on the patio. I had an all-inclusive package through my amazing wedding coordinator so I can't speak to the exact value of this location because I'm not sure what the venue charges...but the alcohol costs seem very reasonable. The wine options are great and the staff is VERY helpful and friendly.

We were married at Paradise Ridge August 2012, and it was the perfect place. Besides Paradise Ridge Winery being unbelievably gorgeous, the staff was great. I was concerned about planning our wedding from Chicago, however Martha, the wedding manager at Paradise Ridge, made it an easy task. She was very responsive to any questions we had, and worked around our schedules when we were in town. We would even drop by Paradise Ridge Winery to show family and friends the venue, and even though we had not set up a meeting with Martha, or even expected to meet her, she would take time out of her day to talk with us. Martha is so personable, organized, and was a delight to work with.

We chose to have both our ceremony and reception at Paradise Ridge, and it worked out perfectly. The layout is nice since you can have your ceremony on one side of the building, and then have a cocktail hour on the other side of the building, and both locations have beautiful views of Sonoma County. Our guests were blown away with the venue.

Another great perk with this venue is they include some tables and chairs, so it cuts down on the rental cost. The dining room is a beautiful room, and is very neutral which allows the bride and groom to transform the room to fit their style. With the amazing views from the dining room, it isn’t even necessary to fill the room with a lot of decorations and design elements. Paradise Ridge Winery has acres of gorgeous land with many unique sculptures. We took some great photos with our wedding party and family by the “LOVE” sign, which was a huge hit with our guests since you have a nice view of the sculpture from the dining room. And how can I not mention their wine?! Their wine is great, and we have talked with so many guests since our wedding that have mentioned they loved the wine. We love our wine as much as we love our craft beer, and Martha was great with working with us to find the beer we wanted.
