Ramekins Culinary School, Events & Inn
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My husband and I just got married at Ramekins on Saturday and could not have been happier with the venue. Everything was spot on from Ambiance/ Decor, Food, and Service. From our very first meeting, we were impressed with the attention to detail and care of the staff on site. It's a stunning property with a lot of charm: an alcove area for the ceremony, beautiful landscaping throughout, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, fountains, exposed beams and rustic chandeliers in the ballroom, and lots of great antique furniture. The set up of the property allows for a very smooth flow from the ceremony outside, to the cocktail hour on the adjacent patio, to the reception indoors. Since Ramekins is a culinary school, we were also able to tailor the menu to our exact needs. Since it's just a few blocks from Sonoma square, we were able to easily transition to the after-party downtown.

We rented out all six rooms upstairs for family members which was really convenient for getting ready the morning of the wedding, changing into my reception dress, and making sure that grandparents/kids were comfortable if they needed a break any time during the night. The rooms are so gorgeous and spacious! We stayed a total of three nights- rehearsal the night before, wedding night, and the sunday following the wedding and were able to enjoy breakfast upstairs with the family and the wine and cheese reception in the evenings.

If you are considering Sonoma for a wedding or just want a fantastic place to stay while in the area, definitely visit Ramekins. We cannot say enough good things about our experience there and the wonderful staff on site. We're looking forward to coming back each year for our anniversary! Thank you to Yvette and Brooke for being so great to work with!
