Beaulieu Gardens

If we had planned this wedding even remotely close to the West Coast, we would have been seriously tempted to have it at the Beaulieu Gardens in Rutherford, California; a private estate at Beaulieu Vineyards in Napa Valley. All the wedding pictures we have seen from Beaulieu make it look like 'The Secret Garden': imagine a reception dinner with a natural arbor in full bloom overhead and taking a stroll through the vineyard in your wedding gown. The venue can only be booked through Elaine Bell Catering.

Chelsea Lembi-Muraswki, otherwise known as The Charming Gardener, also held her wedding at Beaulieu Gardens. I love how, even though they all chose the same location, each wedding has such a different feel- but what they share is the same stunning and naturally beautiful surroundings.

A friend of mine did have her wedding ceremony at the Beaulieu Winery Gardens. What an absolutely beautiful area.
I didn't know her when she got married (she is no longer with this person). I saw many photos. She grew up in St Helena.
My husband and I love the Wine Country of California. My mother is from San Francisco so going north and sout of there was something we would do growing up on our visits out there.
