Wedding Wednesday: Kenwood Inn & Spa, Sonoma County

by Kristina Fazzalaro on March 27, 2013

This romantic boutique in California's Sonoma County is perfect for an intimate — and luxe — exchange of "I dos."

The Kenwood Inn and Spa is an award-winning boutique that’s a popular spot for tying the knot. Located in Sonoma County, the hotel evokes Tuscan charm from every nook and cranny: Lush gardens, European-style courtyards, and exquisite fountains and pools provide gorgeous backdrops for a wedding, and the 29 private and spacious rooms, individually decorated with romantic Mediterranean-inspired decor, are furnished with cozy fireplaces, quality Italian linens, oversized showers, and personal balconies (some with stunning vineyard views). Extensive freebies (such as in-room drinks and gourmet snacks), plush robes, and an ultra-luxurious spa help ensure that guests feel pampered — particularly important for the bride before her big day. The hotel’s restaurant serves local cuisine using ingredients from nearby ranchers, cheesemongers, and farmers, meaning a delicious feast is in store for all of your wedding attendees. Overall, it’s one of the most romantic boutique picks in Sonoma Wine Country.

The hotel is extremely well-equipped to help couples plan their nuptials, offering the ideal setting for everything from intimate gatherings to fairytale-like receptions for up to 100 guests. An on-site wedding coordinator will help design your unique experience at one of four venues: the lovely Centro Court, the large Pool Courtyard, the intimate Wine Bar, or the Tuscany Room. In addition, treatments at the hotel’s award-winning spa can be arranged in advance (the hotel is known for its vinotherapy services) and menu tastings with the hotel’s executive chef, pastry chef, and sommelier will assure every dish tastes delicious.

Charming exteriors set the stage for what is to come and also provide wonderful backdrops for photos.

The intimate Wine Bar seats six — a perfect reception site for the eloping couple or honeymooners wanting a private meal. For larger celebrations, Kenwood offers three other on-site locations, one of which can hold up to 100 people.

The Spa offers an excellent array of luxe treatments, including the Ti Amo spa package: A side-by-side candlelit couples' massage which comes with a free bottle of sparkling wine and can take place right in your suite.

The Centro Courtyard, also a reception site, exudes Tuscan charm.

The Tuscany Suite comes complete with romantic decor, a private terrace, and a deep soaking tub — perfect for newlyweds.

No visit to Sonoma County is complete without a trip to the vineyards — and a sampling of the local vinos, of course.
