Vine Hill House is stunning!! As you have probably read, Dan has everything down to a tee. You won't need a wedding planner with Dan's helpful lists and running the rehearsal. I can be a total control freak and was completely relaxed about the venue, the rehearsal and the wedding from the day I booked it. Nothing is better than knowing you are in great hands and they have you covered!

My one qualm is that you have to use AMS as your DJ. You pay a premium for AMS as there is only one "Vine Hill" package created and used for all the weddings. Don't get me wrong, the guests still danced the night away and had a FAB time, but it wasn't executed as well as it should have been.

The house to get ready in on the property is amazing and perfect place for the bridesmaids to gather. The venue feels intimate, but has plenty of space to hold everyone. There are ENDLESS amounts of places between the venue and the vineyards for phenomenal photos (check out Duende Photo, they are fabulous).

The grounds are so nicely kept, you barely need any extra decor or flowers to make the place feel magical. It almost feel likes a secret garden. Between the redwoods, flowers, lush grass and vineyards in the background, it's GORGEOUS!

Vine Hill house comes with a comprehensive package and includes all of your tables, heaters, chairs, day use of the house and more. This makes it so easy not having to find and manage multiple vendors for those items!

You can also bring in your own alcohol with a no corkage fee. You do pay for two pricey cases of Pinot Noir, but the Pinot is superb and you save SO much on being able to buy your own bar items. This was definitely a selling point for us.

Book your wedding here, you'll be so happy you did!

Dan is amazing. He helped us through every step of the way and was very flexible when we wanted to do non-traditional things (brunch wedding, dogs included, no cocktail hour, etc.). He also acts as a day-of coordinator and our day was absolutely stress free. Plus the venue is a knock-out - our guests were blown away by its beauty.

If you are looking for an outdoor venue with sweeping vineyard views, look no further. Vine Hill House is breathtakingly beautiful. Dan has done such a great job tailoring the space for weddings. In a sea of places that charge $10,000+ just to walk onto their property, it was nice to have a moderately priced (for wine country!) option. You are even allowed to bring in your own alcohol which significantly cuts down on the overall cost. Dan also helps so much with planning and provides a long list of vendors to choose from. I had so many people tell me it was the most beautiful wedding venue they'd ever been to!

Vine Hill House is amazing--I feel so lucky to have gotten married there! It is beautiful and a great value. The owner, Dan, is like a built-in wedding coordinator who will help you every step of the way with planning and day-of organization. All of my guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the view was.

Vine Hill House is a fantastic venue to have your wedding. It is truly one of the most serene settings in the area. It is the perfect size of not too large and gaudy. And possess a charm which fit us perfectly. We had a flawless day, I'll say that even with the few drops of rain we had. Dan (owner) is very professional and knows his business and his venue like the back the back of his hand. He was great to work with. Seriously on point and on top of all facets of the day from the weather and how to address it to the limo pick up of bride and groom. I know our day could not have been such a success without Dan at the helm. He thought of everything and helped us keep on track with no last minute surprises. We our very thankful we chose Vine Hill House. All guests were beyond delighted with the choice too. Highly recommend.

Vine Hill is not only the most beautiful venue, but Dan (owner/coordinator) is super helpful and makes sure every detail is taken care of. We had a few thunderstorms on our wedding day and we were given periodic updates about the radar throughout the evening, which really allowed us to be able to relax and enjoy our time, knowing that the storm would soon pass. Dan has great recommendations for other vendors, and the venue has the most amazing spots for photography. Highly recommend!

Vine Hill House was the perfect venue for our August wedding. We had been recommended by several friends who had attended or had their weddings at this venue based on our search for a backyard mixed with winery vibe. It ended up being the perfect location.

The site itself is gorgeous & well kept. I was concerned how it would look since we were in a drought, but the gardens were just as beautiful as I imagined. I also really like the fact that all the big rentals were included, as well as umbrellas & heaters to help with some of the weather throughout the event. There are also a bunch of great decor items that are available for rent, and doing all of this through the venue just makes everything so easy. It was great that we could bring in all our own liquor, caterers, vendors, etc. I was able to assemble my dream vendor team at an amazing venue with little restrictions.

Dan is very knowledgeable and provides a ton of insight, guidance, and help throughout the process. I'm very organized & detailed, so I appreciated that Dan was as well. My only small gripe is that he is very particular about certain things or processes, which if you want to get super creative might not work. Overall we trusted his opinion since he has been doing this for so long & everything went off without a hitch!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I have only heard good things from all of our guests, that it was the "best wedding EVER!"

Tips:
- Trust Dan, he knows what he is doing & is probably recommending the best way for it to be done. However, feel free to ask if you can do something a little differently if it is important.
- If you don't hear from him via email, keep trying or call his cell phone. With the number of events they manage he can't always be super responsive.
- No need to hire a day of coordinator - Dan and his team do it all!

We had our wedding at Vine Hill House and the would give the overall experience a 3 out of 5. The owner Dan was very hard to get a hold of throughout the wedding planning process, making it very difficult to get simple questions answered in a timely manner. I would sometimes have to send 2-3 emails before i would get a response which became frustrating when trying to plan a wedding. Dan sold himself to us as a "day of coordinator" to me that means you are there from start to finish on the day of helping, organizing, and making sure that your plans and decor are executed on your big day. Unfortunately on the day of Dan was no where to be found to help out. I had to go looking for him on the property several times to find him meeting with couple after couple trying to sell weddings on my wedding day. We rented the venue for the day and there were several couples he had booked to show the venue/meet with on our wedding day. Not cool. I ended up running around setting most of the stuff up myself because several things he said he would take care of never got done. If you book this venue please make sure you have at least another coordiator besides Dan. If you do book this venue just remember its your day not Dan's so dont forget to do things how you would like. Overall our wedding was a very special day i just wish i would of known some of these things before hand.
