NAPA & SONOMA WEDDING PLANNING

Cole Drake Events is a luxury destination wedding planning company located in the heart of the Napa Wine Country. We have created a planning foundation based on appealing to the senses, using Honesty, Authenticity, Creativity, and (a sh*t ton of) Humor with just a smidge of sarcasm.

Our planning approach focuses on each project from conception to completion; amassing the perfect talent for the event is our forte. Each preferred partner is carefully selected based upon a number of factors including our clients’ budget, personality and interests as to create synchronicity in the process. While there is a natural order and flow to planning, our clients’ weddings and events are all quite unique from one another.  We work to keep our clients’ vision true to their event (or perhaps they need inspiration from us) and excel at creating a sensory experience for the guests on that important day/weekend. Few in the industry possess our diversity of experience and breadth of knowledge.  When situations arise that require immediate action, we meet challenges head on – even if it includes a cowbell (true story).

Let us be a part of your memorable wedding, fabulous fete or luxury Napa or Sonoma experience. Where details, precision and creativity are paramount to a successful event, you’ll want the best Wine Country wedding and event planners, Cole Drake Events.

SIGNATURE WEEKEND PACKAGE

Our weekend package is the full “shebang” for your destination weekend. Our team works with you to create and design up to three custom and unique events (rehearsal/Welcome dinner, wedding, farewell brunch) that are true reflections of you. With a keen eye for creating sensory experiences for you and your guests, we customize your wine country wedding experience with personalized details and recommend artisans who deliver on that vision. From recommending the right vendors to custom event design to creating diagrams and timelines, the Signature Weekend Package allows you to remain in the drivers seat on the decision-making while allowing professionals to meticulously manage your flow and experience. Ultimately, planning a weekend of events can be stressful – so we take the pressure off of you and let you enjoy being engaged. From site selection to execution of the event (including the clean-up), we are with you every step of the way.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are a dynamic team of planners in Wine Country with a combined experience of more than 20 years of wedding & event design/production, restaurant and hotel management. We are professed foodies with a penchant for using sarcasm and humor to navigate the planning process.

Our core philosophy is more is just more…it’s NOT better. Over doing anything from food to event design is just overwhelming. Keeping things authentic to who you are as a couple is key. If you are already over the top…well, more is better for you and we probably are not the best option for your ostentatious, contrived overly priced day.
