Navigating Logistics

Navigating logistics for a Placerville wedding, especially at a venue like Black Oak Mountain Vineyards, calls for careful planning. Firstly, ensure you have understood the transportation details, as some of your guests may be traveling from afar. Offering shuttle services or directions for easy navigation can be a thoughtful gesture. It’s also wise to book accommodations early, particularly if your wedding coincides with the region’s peak tourist seasons. Always plan for the weather; though California’s climate is favorable, having tents or indoor options available is prudent. Work closely with the venue’s coordinators; their insider knowledge is invaluable for local vendor recommendations and timelines that flow seamlessly.

We were lucky enough to randomly stumble across BlackOak for our wedding venue which boasts an exceptional reception area, and couldn’t be happier. The place is amazing and the staff are wonderful. Jane is a 10/10 and will do everything in her power to make your wedding perfect.

We had our wedding at Black Oak and it was hands down amazing! The barn is maintained very well, its very modern and the staff was very pleasant to work with! Not only is the barn amazing, but the property itself is surrounded with huge oaks and beautiful views of the mountains! Would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for any sort of event!

Wow, where to start?? Jane and everyone at BOMV were so kind and caring with our wedding process from our first tour to the big day and beyond! We visited 14 (!!) venues and considered 20 more, but we went with BOMV because it was number one in beauty, customer service, amenities, and value!! The venue is so stunning that we only needed minimal decor and let the natural and architectural beauty shine through. We used the hilltop ceremony site, the Villa for cocktail hour, and the vineyard club for the reception, and doing so made the day feel like it was three events in one, with each part offering something unique. Jane and the BOMV team were always so quick to respond to our millions of questions and provide helpful information which gave us reassurance throughout the whole crazy wedding planning process. We stayed with our wedding party in the Villa the night of the wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made because we had SO much fun and really wowed everyone with the gorgeous estate. Thank you BOMV for making our big day so perfect! We hope to have a reason to visit soon ❤️
