Elopement and Small Weddings

Because of its serene and secluded atmosphere, Carneros Resort and Spa makes an ideal spot for intimate weddings and elopements where the focus is on the ceremony itself rather than a large reception. These simple, elegant celebrations are reserved for parties of up to 18 people, including the couple, and can be scheduled Sunday through Friday, based upon availability.


We can also offer rental of the venue only:

  • Intimate weddings in The Arbor. Includes use of the venue and chairs for one hour and up to 18 people. Couples who choose this option might choose to book a post-ceremony dinner in the private dining room of FARM.
  • Traditional Elopements in The Arbor. Keep it simple with a standing ceremony attended by just the couple, a witness, and an officiant arranged (vs. supplied) by the couple. Includes use of the venue for one hour.
  • Private Elopements in a Guest Cottage. Our most intimate weddings take place in the privacy of a guest cottage with just the couple, plus a witness and officiant arranged by the couple.
