Cyndi and Tom had their destination wedding at the beautiful Loma Maria in the heart of Paso Robles, California. Thet fell in love with Austin Hope Wines, so they thought it would be perfect to tie the knot in a city they love. So them and 11 family members hopped on a plane from Texas for this special occasion. They enjoyed a full week of adventures and exploring the Central Coast. And they blessed with a perfect spring evening for their celebration.
So if you are looking for an alternative location to tie the knot, what do you need to think about? An AirBnB can be a great option. Since you are hosting at a private space, there are a few things to think about when planning.
How many rooms for guests? How will parking go? Where can you have your ceremony and reception? Will it be indoors or outdoors? This will greatly affect your guest count.
Since you are hosting at a private property, what do they have already? Do you like the dishware, glasses, etc? Is there enough for all your guests? You may need to get some chairs, tables, linens, and silverware. Also, what is the bathroom situation like? If you are having more than 40 people, we suggest renting out some extra bathrooms.
Make it a week-long experience. Get to your property early. Scope it out in person, and make any final adjustments you need to. We reccomend having your celebration in the middle of your stay.
You have a few options for food! Do you want to make it yourself? Do you want a private chef to come and cook? Or can you have a food truck and bar service come to you? This would be our top pick!
You get more control and options when you host at an AirBnB, but then you also have more logistics that you have to handle yourself.
We are all for more AirBnB and private property wedding celebrations! They are unqiue, cozy, and every detail is really up to you!
So if you are looking for a great property that can comfortably sleep 12 with 15 wineries within 1 mile of the property, I’d check out Loma Maria.
