Paradise Ridge was the perfect place for our wedding. I wanted a venue that not only reflected the beautiful wineries that California offers but also had that woodsy feel to it. Paradise Ridge truly was my Fall Fantasy. We held our wedding the first weekend of November because of it being out of wedding season pricing but mostly because the colors of the leaves and the vineyard are a beautiful golds, yellows, reds and oranges. The venue sits on top of a hill and overlooks not only the vineyard but also the entire Santa Rosa City. We had perfect warm weather that weekend and our sunset wedding made the day feel like it was out of a storybook.

The venue was accommodating to most of our wants (minus the sparklers, we opted for a candlelight exit). Martha was wonderful to work with from advising us on vendors to great local places to hold our engagement dinner. There isn't anything more I would have changed about my wedding looking back. Everyone kept saying how beautiful the place was and everyone said it was unique and could see why we choose such an incredible location.

In fact we got some Christmas cards from friends who had the background from our wedding! This place is special and it's not just the large LOVE sign that makes this place beautiful but the whole venue is stunning from every area. Also, the wine was a huge hit! Their reds are a perfect blend!

We had our wedding at Paradise Ridge Winery in October 2014, and it was AMAZING!! Seriously the best place I could have imagined for a wedding. Paradise Ridge has it all: a gorgeous venue that is perfectly setup for weddings, beautiful views of wine country, great wine, friendly staff, and flexible hours.

Although it's off a busy area in Santa Rosa, it feels very secluded and intimate, at the top of a long winding driveway, with sweeping views of the vineyards below. There are several distinct areas to hold various parts of the event: a front patio with a gorgeous large tree, where we had welcome drinks; a patio in the back for the ceremony, overlooking the vineyards below; a long wooden veranda running along the side of the winery that's great for cocktail hour (especially during sunset!); and a beautiful pavillion that's perfect for dinner & dancing.

Unlike many spots in wine country that have a 10pm curfew for weddings, PRW lets you go as late as you want, so we went until 11pm and had a full two hours of dancing after dinner. Martha, the events manager at PRW, was great to work with and provided a lot of good suggestions for vendors, but was also flexible when we wanted to go "off list".

The only tradeoff is that PRW, like most winery venues, only allows wine and beer - no hard alcohol. But it ended up not being a big deal, because we had some fun cocktails at our rehearsal dinner the night before, and picked a lot of great wines to serve throughout the evening of our wedding. PRW lets you pick as many as you want, and you only pay for what you drink, which is awesome and makes it totally stress-free.

I can go on and on about PRW, but I'll end by saying that we were extremely happy we chose PRW for our wedding venue, and if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!

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
