It’s no secret that brides from all around the world are packing their dress, shoes, jewelry, and their sweetheart headed to the wine country of Paso Robles to say the big “I do.” Wineries nestled in the rolling vineyard hills have become prime real estate for weddings. If Paso Robles isn’t on your radar yet as your dream location, buckle up: we’ll catch you up to speed on the top 5 reasons brides and grooms are moving their weddings to this Central Coast town.
Naturally Breathtaking Venues
Imagine not having to worry about wedding decorations. This isn’t some far-fetched dream in Paso Robles. Here the breathtaking landscape does all the decorating for you! Vines are in full bloom, oak canopies are plentiful and pink and orange sunsets dance across the hills. These are just a few of the natural accents that will act as the perfect backdrop for your big day. Looking for wineries that have that extra pop of outdoor magic? We’ve got just the thing! Below you’ll find three wineries with views that will have you saying “I do” to a Paso Robles wedding.
Close your eyes and picture driving through a canopy of trees, until you’ve finally arrived upon a cozy barn. Welcome to the Silo Barn at Halter Ranch. Nestled in acres of ranchland, this chic and rustic barn offers both indoor and outdoor accommodations. Have your wedding outside with a backdrop of wild country and then cut the cake inside as the dancing starts. This venue perfectly marries the beauty of the outdoors with the indoors.
Conveniently located only minutes from downtown Paso Robles, it’s surprising just how much nature surrounds this gem of a winery. Enter a whole new world upon your arrival at Adelaida Vineyard & Winery. With a 360-degree view of vibrant vineyards and walnut orchards, it’s hard not to get lost in the natural beauty. You can also take it a step further and choose to exchange vows on the hilltop, under a canopy of 100-year-old oak trees, overlooking the Santa Lucia Mountains.
Not only are you surrounded by the natural beauty of the vineyard at Sculpterra Winery & Sculpture Garden, but you’ll also have an intricate sculpture garden to complement your outdoor wedding. If you’re looking for that extra unique flair, you will undoubtedly find it here where art meets and melds into the natural landscape. The art flows from outside into the tasting room, giving you additional photo background options. Here you can choose to say “yes” under an oak tree, surrounded by the vineyard or on a stage in front of a blossoming rose garden with magnificent sculptures in the background.
Stay & Sleep Among the Vines!
Many Paso Robles wineries with wedding venues also offer housing and prep accommodations on-site. So, after a long and spectacular day of laughing, dancing and celebrating, you can rest in private accommodations with all the stunning views accented by a starry night sky. We have three favorite winery lodging options for you to check out below.
Not only does Cass Winery offer two superb venues for you to exchange wedding vows, their Barrel Room (which is brand new) and the Rustic Outdoor Vineyard, but they also have onsite lodging, The Geneseo Inn. Built out of recycled steel shipping containers, the rooms of the inn sit in the middle of the vineyards, offering you and your guests the perfect immersive experience as you watch the stars shine over the vineyard.
Whether you’re looking to have your wedding by a lake, a vineyard, an outdoor European inspired courtyard, an olive grove, lodging, or all the above, you’ll find it at Rava Wines + Events. Not only does this Paso Robles winery have outdoor accommodations (that in total can hold up to 1,550 people), but they also offer a beautiful ballroom, perfect for dancing the night away. Then once your wedding has wrapped up, retire to Villa Glada, a private three-bedroom luxury home above the estates tasting room. Step out on the balcony and overlook miles of vineyards and oaks on their 505-acre estate.
While not a winery, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to mention Terra Mia. Located in the heart of Paso Robles wine country, they are in the middle of two wineries, only a minute away. When you arrive at Terra Mia you’ll follow a pathway adorned with lights that leads you through beautiful olives trees and to a lake, complete with a waterfall and a sandy beach. Relax out on the deck by the water before your wedding in the outdoor amphitheater with a water backdrop. Then after it’s all said and done, relax in the Bridal Suite, and listen to the night breeze sweep through the countryside.
The Incredible Wine
Last but certainly not least is the proximity to phenomenal wine! When you have your wedding at a Paso Robles winery, you’ve got wine only steps away. Not just any wine mind you, a lot of Paso Robles wine is award winning wine. There are over 60 wine grape varietals grown here which gives you plenty of options when it comes to choosing your wine. Rosé all day? You got it! A fan of rich Cabernets? You’ll find plenty here. Want to toast with sparkling wine? You’ll find even that in Paso Robles wine country. Not to mention, you can forgo the almost out of wine emergencies and last minute store runs during the reception. Being on the actual winery property, you can breathe a sigh of relief and take a big sip from that wine glass and enjoy.
