Nestled within the hills of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, the appeal of Healdsburg’s Madrona Manor is evident within seconds of driving through the hotel’s arches. Guests are met with lush lawns, opulent gardens and breathtaking Victorian architecture, a combination that showcases Madrona’s potential as the perfect canvas for a romantic wedding. With 17 guestrooms, five suites and various cottages scattered throughout the property, Madrona Manor is the perfect wine-country haven. The inn’s interiors are adorned with an array of timeless antiques collected by the owners during their travels.
The inn is brimming with breathtaking spaces to tie the knot, such as the picturesque South Lawn, with a towering sycamore tree that perfectly frames the astounding view of Sonoma’s vineyards. Event planner extraordinaire Kacie McGranahan offers couples support through every step of nuptial planning while Chef Jesse Mallgren, the 14-year-strong culinary force behind the hotel’s Michelin-rated restaurant, presents an ever-evolving menu inspired by the inn’s organic garden. With exciting dishes such as Pop Rock–infused cucumber salads and staples such as his famous onion velouté soup, paired with the chef ’s willingness to create a custom menu, Madrona Manor is an ideal retreat for gourmands.
