We might be biased (OK, we are!), but we really believe that Livermore is one of the best wedding destinations in the world. Sure, Bali and Iceland might (might!) have us beat, but we’re pretty confident that you’ll fall in love with our special area in a matter of hours.

Why is that, you ask? Great question.

Our weather is fabulous, no matter the season.

Want to host a winter wedding but without the headache of snow-laden contingency plans? No worries. Dreaming of a summer celebration sans 90+ degree heat and fears of sweat marks? Not a problem. Livermore’s temperate climate is consistent year-round, with winter averages hovering around 45-50 degrees and summer temperatures rarely going above the high 80s. And with more sunny days on average than the nation at large, you’ll find beautiful weather to keep guests comfortable no matter your wedding season!

Livermore wedding photos are stunning.

Set in the rolling hills of the Tri-Valley area, Livermore wedding venues are known for incredible views of the mountains in the Diablo Range — which just so happens to make a lovely backdrop for wedding pictures! Thanks to year-round agreeable weather, you can take advantage of the natural beauty without so much as a shiver or sweatdrop.

Wine is kind of our thing.

So we love wine out here — so much so that the southern side of Livermore is wine country! Drive through the area and you’ll see vineyards spanning as far as you can see. It’s not just for show, though. The wine produced by local winemakers, like Wente Vineyards and Ruby Hill Winery, attracts connoisseurs from around the world. There’s a reason we’re the oldest wine country in California. (Take that, Napa-Sonoma!) So you know our wine will make for a great selection at your Livermore wedding!

There’s a lot to do when you get married in Livermore.

With San Francisco and San Jose each under an hour away and Sacramento just 90 minutes up I-5, there is plenty to keep you and your Livermore wedding guests occupied throughout your stay. But once you visit our special city, you’ll recognize it for the hidden gem it is and likely want to stick around! (Trust us, there’s plenty of wine to drink and trails to hike while you’re here!)

Livermore wedding pros are the cream of the crop.

We have the best folks ready to help you plan the wedding of your dreams! Our local industry is a tight-knit community of professionals who love celebrating love. Just take a peek at some of our Creative Partner Spotlights where we shine a light on our Livermore wedding friends, like Hazy Lane Studios, Adam J. Clark Photography, and Beets Hospitality Group.

So have we convinced you to get married in Livermore? We hope you’ll come by and check out our bucolic little valley — you might never want to leave! (And while you’re here, schedule a consultation with us or join us for our next Event Services Showcase on March 10!)

What Has Jill Victor of On The Vine Catering Been Doing in Quarantine?

This is a part of our Creative Partner Spotlight: Quarantine Edition series, where we show you what our creative partners from all around the Bay Area have been up to during quarantine. Today, we’re checking in with Jill Victor of On the Vine Catering! 

What has been your favorite part about quarantine? It’s been pretty rough, but the lack of traffic has been quite the surprise perk!

What has been your least favorite part about quarantine? Having to furlough our team. We’re a family at On the Vine so having to do that was incredibly difficult.

What have you been binge watching? Ozark

Have you learned any new skills during quarantine? Canva and Avery Label Making. Getting my graphic design on!

What are your favorite local restaurants to order take out from? We love ordering from Posada! But did you also know that we’re providing pick up and heat menus here at On the Vine? Here’s some of our latest options!

What are you looking forward to most when all of this is over? Having a regular work schedule and welcoming our team back.

Is there anything else you’d like to add? I hope everyone is healthy and staying safe. If we all follow the guidelines maybe we can get back to normal quicker!
