Wedding season is upon us once again. Whether you’re researching future venue possibilities, or considering caterers for your big day, take a moment to see what Novato has to offer. Tucked perfectly between San Francisco and wine country, our quaint and scenic city is home to wedding venues and services that offer some of the best values in the North Bay.
One of the most important details of any wedding is the venue. If you’re searching for picturesque and classic, look no further than Unity in Marin. This restored Spanish colonial style church has a courtyard straight out of a magazine pictorial, suitable for outdoor ceremonies, in addition to an indoor reception hall and chapel.
Mixing delicious wine, scenic views and rustic vibes is Pacheco Winery. The property includes a charming estate house dating back to the early 1900’s making it the perfect backdrop for wine-country wedding photos.
You don’t have to be a member to reap all the benefits of Marin Country Club. With multiple ceremony and reception locations on site, they can accommodate small, intimate weddings and glorious gatherings of over 200 guests. The Clubhouse features striking architecture, and tasteful decor. The exterior features bright green lawns. This is a very special venue, for a day to remember forever.
Inn Marin has romance written all over it, with its gorgeous gardens and mission style architecture. They also have award-winning customer service ensuring that your big day flows as seamlessly as possible. Inn Marin offers resort-style features, including a swimming pool, pool patio and well-maintained gardens. The Inn is also available to host rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and wedding anniversary events.
If a great venue is at the top of the list, a delicious menu is a close second. Forks and Fingers is a full service catering company that has perfected countless recipes so every menu is flawlessly tailored to your preferences. Or try Alta Cuisine, who have been providing the Bay Area with elegant recipes and professional service since 1990.
What wedding isn’t complete without the perfect cake? Family bakers at Creekside Bakery have been making beautiful wedding cakes for more than 35 years, and they look as exquisite as they taste. Teeny Cake is your Novato go-to for wedding cupcakes, available in an array of delicious flavors and frostings. For gluten-free goodies, Flour Chylde on Grant Ave creates gorgeous made-to-order cakes.
For the finer details, San Marin Flowers can outfit your celebration with beautiful arrangements of all the roses, hydrangeas, or tulips you’ll ever need. For riding in style, get in touch with Rixos Transportation. They’ll escort your entire party from ceremony to reception in one of their many limos or party buses.
Finally, you’ll need to say thanks to your bridesmaids and groomsmen so check out Sage Gallery on Grant Ave. This charming boutique includes one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories so you’re bound to find something for each of them. For a delicious beverage-based gift, try Mantra Wines or Beercraft. Both Novato favorites have a wide variety of libations on offer, so you can hand pick something unique for every member of your wedding party.
