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.

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!

Vine Hill House is absolutely gorgeous! I keep getting calls from my wedding guests about how beautiful everything was and that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. The hardest part about the place was two weeks before the wedding, Dan told us a bunch of additional items we needed. I was kind of shocked. However, he REALLY knows what works BEST! He was there the entire wedding making sure things were running on schedule. I was very pleased with everything!! I definitely recommend VHH! Just make sure you get the rental list from Dan before hand so you don't have additional costs 2 weeks before!

This is a beautiful venue and my wedding there went off without a hitch, but the owner (Dan) turned out to be a bit sketchy. He was really responsive until we signed a contract and then I often had to email him multiple times on the same topic before I'd get a response. He also tried to charge us a service charge for something that he'd told us he didn't charge for. I'm glad we were married there, but dealing with him before the wedding did make things more stressful. In all fairness, he was great the day of the wedding and really did keep things running smoothly. If he wasn't there the day of, I probably would have had to hire a day of coordinator. If you like this venue, I'd say go for it, but keep in mind that Dan may take some additional energy to deal with...I'd recommend Vine Hill House with some reservations.

I don't think you can do much better than Vine Hill House for your wedding venue. The place is absolutely stunning--gorgeous grounds with beautiful flowers, outstanding views and a cozy yet comfortable space.

Dan O'Connell, the owner and manager of the venue, is wonderful. He knows how to make his site run flawlessly. It might come across to some as controlling, but ultimately he knows exactly what needs to happen for a perfect day. He takes care of the bride and family, he's kind and takes the time to get to know each group. He was a joy to work with.

The site also includes some great amenities that you might miss at some other similar venues. He has nice built in bathrooms (yup, no port-a-potties!), umbrellas and heaters and some fun rentals to decorate the space.

The layout of the space makes for a great party too. Distinct spaces allow for a really nice flow, giving people space to dance or drink or have dessert. My dad also loved that the back porch essentially becomes a stage for the toasts and cake-cutting, so everyone at the event gets to see what's happening.

I have no complaints at all about Vine Hill House and am thrilled with our decision to hold our wedding there. It is a magical place that provided the perfect backdrop for our perfect day.

My husband and I recently got married at Vine Hill House in Sebastopol, CA. It was very easy to get in touch with the owners Dan and his wife Jan and after speaking with Dan on the phone, I knew it was a place I needed to see. The day we toured the property it rained, but the natural beauty and charm of the area was crystal clear. The lush greenery of the lawns and gardens paired with the charming guest house and flagstone walkways was perfect for the rustic garden wedding I had envisioned. Not to mention the entire property is artfully lit with path lighting, up lights and twinkle lights wrapped around the trees. And then there is the view! The dinner space on the lawn overlooks rolling hills of vineyards with breathtaking mountains and a small body of water off in the distance. I was hooked! In the hour we spent talking to Dan and touring his family owned apple orchard and winery property, I knew I wanted to get married at Vine Hill House. I was planning my wedding from a distance and Dan let me know right away that it would not be a problem and that he could do as much or as little with the planning as I wanted. He was warm and friendly and I trusted him instantly. In the months leading up to the wedding Dan was very responsive and encouraging with each question I called or emailed with and when I asked for advice he always had a helpful answer and sometimes even an email packet with more details.


Fast forward to the wedding day and I cannot say enough glowing things about this place or the owners. Dan and his team were out bright and early setting up all of the decoration to my specifications. And when it started to rain he kept me calm and assured me that the satellite report promised it would pass quickly. Then he instructed his crew to hand wipe each chair so that nothing was wet when my guests arrived. Dan also acts as day of coordinator, so if you can’t afford a wedding planner, this is a great savings. Dan was absolutely on top of every detail including keeping all of the vendors on time and in order. He has decades of experience with weddings so he knows lots of tricks to make sure your event runs smoothly. My friends and family were all very impressed with the way the entire event came together. The staggering beauty and quiet charm of Vine Hill House combined with Dan’s professionalism relaxed demeanor make for a home run for any wedding. I would absolutely recommend Vine Hill House to any bride looking to have an unforgettable outdoor garden wedding.

We chose our wedding location in Sebastopol as it was an area we often visited from East Bay and enjoyed with our local friends; and we wanted to share it with our “mostly out-of-town guests.
The location was spectacular. The event setting is an old apple orchard with a beautiful *** home that was the childhood house of the owner, Dan.
The surrounding area is now owned by Gallo and we were surrounded by fields of grapes.
While not acting as a real wedding planner (something we did not want anyway); Dan WAS owner, adviser and wedding day manager, as well as the one who made sure no small details were missed.
He was strong without being too pushy and provided recommendations for caterers, photographers, florists, music, virtually anything we needed.
We used many of his recommendations and were thrilled with every choice.
We purposely chose a night with a full moon and watching it rise out of the vineyards on a warm August night made the night all the more magical
If you want to really want a beautiful and very personal wedding; but want enough guidance to keep out of trouble, Vine Hill House and Dan O’Connell make a great combination!

Our wedding at Vine Hill House was amazing!! Our friends and family left saying it was a fairytale wedding in an amazing location. The location of VHH is absolutely stunning. The venue has a view of the rolling vineyards, a reservoir in the distance and a dirt road that evokes the feeling of a Tuscan setting. Dan and Jan take great pride in their venue which is reflected through the well maintained property including, gorgeous landscaping, renovated bathrooms, and a new and improved stone dance floor.

We booked VHH about 18 months prior to the wedding date and visited many times. Dan and Jan were very hospitable and welcomed us on many occasions as we brought our parents to see the venue. They are extremely organized and reliable and take care of everything, including table and chairs, parking lot attendants, gas heaters for the evening, and coordinating with the vendors the day of the wedding to make sure that everything is seamless and easy for the bride and the groom. They make sure that the wedding will be flawless and classy. Also, Vine Hill House has great value and is less expensive than similar locations in the area.

The day of the wedding we arrived at 10am and spent the morning getting ready in the house. Dan and Jan encouraged us to make use of the house all day and have our hair and make-up done right there. They wanted us to feel relaxed and comfortable all day. I've heard stories about people being extremely stressed the day of their wedding, but being at Vine Hill House, with Dan and Jan taking care of everything I was not stressed at all. It was fun to be at the house all day and to watch the preparations unfold.

Getting married at VHH not only offers a beautiful venue, but also Dan's expertise gained from coordinating hundreds of weddings. He uses his expertise to help you plan a classy, seamless event. Even though Dan knows what works well, and what doesn't work, he was willing to make modifications to help accommodate our vision for the day. For example, Dan did not recommend doing a champagne toast at the time I wanted to because he said in his experience it's hard to get everyone attention immediately following the ceremony. However, it was really important to me that we do our toast then, so Dan worked with the caterer and the DJ to take extra precautions so that the timing of the toast would work well. Dan also offered advise on things like how much red and white wine to buy and wedding tipping etiquette.

Dan also did a fantastic job coordinating our rehearsal. All our family members were extremely impressed by the organization and attention to detail at the rehearsal and everyone said they had never been to such a helpful rehearsal.

I cannot say enough good things about Dan and Jan at Vine Hill House. If I were to do the whole thing all over again I would without a doubt do it at Vine Hill House.

Vine Hill House was amazing! If you are getting married here, spend the night at the house with your bridesmaids--the outdoor spa is relaxing and it's nice to wake up in the morning already at the venue!

Romantic Garden & Sonoma County Vineyards!
I grew up in Sebastopol, and always dreamed of getting married at a winery in my home town. After visiting several other wineries though, I realized that many of them were too expensive, or too austere (I'd have to bring in lots of flowers and decoration to make it seem beautiful and festive). VHH however, was everything I dreamed it would be. It had a gorgeous view of the vineyards and Sonoma County's rolling hills, and a romantic garden setting. The only decoration I needed was personal flowers and centerpieces. The owners of the property, Dan and Jan provided me with a wealth of information on other local vendors which was invaluable as I was planning. My husband likes to say, our wedding day went off with only one hitch (us getting hitched). Everything went according to the plan. In fact several guests say our wedding was the first wedding they'd ever been to where everything happened on time. That was due to the incredible teamwork of Dan, Jan and their crew! All I had to do was get ready, and show up. All setup was handled by VHH. The flip-side to this though is that they can bit a bit bossy with your vendors and somewhat inflexible. The one unfortunate thing that did happen was the chuppah my dad built broke while moving into place. Luckily VHH stepped in with their chuppah, which was the same style and dimensions, and actually made a bit better. I was sad it wasn't the one my dad built, but theirs actually looked better. In the end, it was good we used theirs! Stop searching, Vine Hill House is the place to get married!
