I Do Venues: Cline Cellars

As you drive down the Carneros Highway you are surrounded by wineries on all sides, but the Cline Cellars is the first winery you will encounter. It's a beautiful and welcoming location for your family and friends as an introduction to your wine country celebration.
The team at Cline Cellars have done a remarkable job of creating a lush green garden oasis which can function as a central location for your wedding ceremony and reception. The great lawn sets a spectacular backdrop for the couple looking to host a breathtaking affair, capturing the natural beauty of the picturesque surroundings. I love the mature willow trees - they are the ideal spot to frame in the bride and groom as they exchange vows.
The trees, ponds, and aviaries give your guests the feeling that they are at a private wine country retreat versus a traditional winery. Don't get me wrong - Cline has been making some of the best vintages for over fifty years.
The couple featured above chose to hold their ceremony on the great lawn. I love the dramatic use of rose petals, which adds color and texture. And what bride wouldn't want to arrive on a bed of roses? Add to the lush greenery by adding some color. The combination of the rose petals down the aisle along with the bright floral arrangements on the pillars is a perfect choice. A clean and simple design adds to the surroundings rather than outshine it.
