You’ve got the love, you’ve got the ring, now let’s find the venue. Locking in a wedding venue allows you to start making decisions on the overall design and aesthetic for your big day. I invite you to keep reading for a wedding planner’s deep dive on St. Chapelle Winery.

Located in Caldwell, ID amongst rolling hills of vineyards, St. Chapelle feels like a Californian countryside getaway! Ste. Chapelle wine is an Idaho staple that you can sip while celebrating and saying “I do!” A meticulously manicured landscape surrounds you as you look out on rows of grapevines and a view of the Snake River. 

Ste. Chapelle can accommodate weddings from an intimate 65 up to 600 guests. For that reason, rental fees range from $1,500-$3,500. And even though the outdoor space can fit up to 600, there are still plenty of ways to break up space for a more modest crowd of 100-200 guests. Once that guest list is locked in, you may start to think about what you’re going to feed them? Ste. Chapelle has a list of preferred vendors that offer a great variety of options.

Bride and Groom suite accommodations: There is a bridal suite but it is very small and offers NO natural lighting. Because of this, I recommend the bridal party get ready elsewhere and use the suite as a place to store things and freshen up before the ceremony. This venue does not have a groom’s quarter. 

Something you ought to know: 

  • Venue access does not begin until 12 pm unless arranged otherwise. Weddings must end by 10 pm and vendors must be done by 11 pm
  • Beer & wine only. All wine must be purchased through Ste. Chapelle and they outsource beer from Powderhaus Brewing.
  • The Ste. Chapelle tasting room remains open during weddings so there may be other patrons on the property. The tasting room closes at 6 pm during the week and 7 pm on the weekends. 
  • Included in the rental you will be granted a 20% discount on Ste. Chapelle wine to serve at your special event

The designing opportunities are endless at a space like Ste. Chapelle. I adore how things came together in this space and hope to find myself here again. If not for a wedding, certainly for an afternoon of drinks with me and my girlfriends! Lol
