What makes us stand out from wedding venues in Sonoma county?
Whether 20 or 150, your wedding guests will feel like they’re part of an intimate wedding ceremony nestled under the 100-year-old Oak Trees. It’s an experience you can only see and feel in person.
Your wedding reception will feature views of beautiful rolling hills, vineyards, towering trees, and gardens.
But aside from the aesthetics of our property, our wedding couples love that get to work with venue owners John and Lane rather than a corporate-owned wedding venue.
Husband/wife team John and Lane are the perfect yin and yang. Lane works tirelessly with the wedding couples, and John oversees (and is hands-on) maintenance at the estate. It takes a lot of work to keep 40 acres picture-perfect for your wine country wedding!
Our private estate in Sonoma county wine country features multiple ceremonies and reception locations, mountain views, vineyard views, rolling hills, Redwoods, Oak Groves, gardens, and other gorgeous features. We’re a short drive from Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Napa, and San Francisco.
“It was love at first sight! From the absolute perfect and beautiful scenery to working with John and Lane. They made every part of this experience the best we could have ever imagined. They are responsive, friendly, always smiling, and willing to let you customize your wedding that suits your needs (which was a huge plus to us!). Mountain House Estate was the perfect venue to make our dream wedding come true!” – Sarah and Darren
John and Lane have lived in California wine country for quite a few years, found the property, and fell in love.
Their primary purpose for purchasing the property was because there was a lovely house located on the property. It was the perfect space for a private event space, reception hall, and wedding venue.
However, the builder never appropriately completed the venue portion of the property.
The Best Wineries in Sonoma and Napa
Here is a list of our favorite vineyard tours and wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
Blood, sweat, love, and tears.
Lane says John is the mastermind behind the improvements made to Mountain House Estate.
From the Oak Tree Terrace to the reconfiguration of the front pond and lawn areas and the beautiful, unique lighting in various areas to bring the event space to life, all Johns’s hard work.
Everything has been elegantly repurposed.
John and Lane have done an incredible job of making their Sonoma CA wedding venue a comfortable creation that reflects their interests and offers a nod to years gone by.
The barn and garden at Oak Tree Terrace are great examples of this.
We’re the top-rated rustic barn-style venue among Sonoma county wedding venues.
California wedding couples love MHE.
People travel from the Bay Area, Napa Valley, Santa Rosa, SoCal, and even further to have their destination wedding here.
Take some time to explore the area; many couples love to go wine tasting and visit the historic Sonoma plaza. Francis Winery is also a favorite of ours to visit – an unprecedented tasting room bar!
Your wedding party will love having a total experience surrounding your big day.
Whether you want all-inclusive wedding packages (we can make it happen) or want to customize everything with a wedding planner, we can work with you.
Host your outdoor wedding in an enchanting location.
If you’re looking at Napa wedding venues, Sonoma Valley, or Sonoma wine country, you’ll love the outdoor spaces at our event venue.
