Wedding Venues

Gather for welcome cocktails by our reflection pool surrounded by green hills, exchange your vows on our terrace overlooking manicured gardens, or choose from one of our other infinitely romantic venues—all with sweeping vistas to match.


Capella is a true original and very distinctive. With the antique timbered ceiling and leaded windows, this one-of-a-kind space spells sanctuary. Accents such as ornate chandeliers, polished marble, dark woods, imported stone and stained glass create an artful, exotic ambiance — a little Italian chapel, a little Arabian Nights. The vaulted architecture lends a personal feel, though the space can accommodate gatherings of 350 or dinner for as many as 240 guests.

Manchester Salon & Terrace

Elevate your large-group event in the high style of the Manchester Salon. Detailed woodwork, hand-stenciled ceilings, chandeliers and large arched windows with garden and golf views set the tone. Though the room is large, with 2,300 square feet of inviting space, it feels intimate and private. There are two handcrafted stone fireplaces: one inside and one on the 1,910-square-foot terrace. Lead breakout sessions in the fresh air, shaded from the sun during the day, or mix and mingle under the stars in the evening.

For an especially memorable evening, start with cocktails on the lawn, then walk nearby to dine in the softly lit Wine Rooms and Cellar in the company of some 3,500 bottles.
