Why We Like This Place
Situated in the middle of Rohnert Park, a friendly community just south of Santa Rosa and an hour north of San Francisco, Fairview Sonoma County offers both class and outstanding value. The Club overlooks the 36-hole Foxtail Golf Course dotted with leafy trees, and all you see from the banquet center's 125 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows are velvety greens, the occasional golfer, and a duck or two heading for the pond just off the 9th hole.
Yes, only a short stroll from the banquet hall lies a calm green pond looking newly transplanted from the English countryside. Complete with weeping willows, waterfowl and a lacy white gazebo bordered by roses, it's an idyllic setting for exchanging vows. In addition to being very pretty, this waterside spot accommodates 300 seated guests, all comfortably facing away from the sun.
Weddings are held year-round, and are equally lovely during the afternoon, when the garden scenery is on full display, or as the sun sets in the evening. (In winter, couples wed inside before an arch and floral displays the facility sets up.) The bride makes her grand entrance from the banquet room's double-doors and all eyes are upon her as she proceeds along a curving walkway to the gazebo. While the couple poses for pictures afterwards, guests walk up a red carpet into the banquet center, a 3,300-square-foot, airy white hall filled with natural light from the expanse of windows. Everyone enjoys appetizers and drinks in the bar area until the newlyweds are announced and take their place at the head table. Catering options run the gamut from a casual buffet to formal sit-down dinner with gourmet fare. You can even add extras like a cappuccino bar or chocolate-covered strawberries. And rare among venues: There are no noise restrictions, so you can party until midnight!
To save you both money and stress, Fairview Sonoma County offers all-inclusive packages that can include a DJ and MC, invitations, wedding cake, florals, hosted bar and more. But if you want to design your own package, the helpful wedding pros are happy to customize to suit your particular needs. For example, a Russian couple enjoyed borscht at their reception, and a Vietnamese pair held a tea ceremony. Some couples have released butterflies during the ceremony, while one even rolled their Harley out to the gazebo for photos.
Although Fairview Sonoma County is popular for weddings, it also hosts rehearsal dinners, golf tournaments, fundraisers, retirement parties and civic luncheons. Charming and unpretentious, Fairview combines affordability with an ease of execution that makes it quite a desirable spot for Wine Country celebrations.
