Events in Placerville, CA

Our intimate Placerville wedding venue is perfect for small to medium sized parties with up to seven guest rooms available. We also offer elopement packages for any couple looking for a more private ceremony. Please fill out our Wedding Information Form to request more information!

  1. How many overnight guests can you accommodate at the inn?
    • The inn can lodge up to 19 guests in our seven guest rooms.
  2. How many people can you accommodate for the wedding ceremony and reception?
    • Typically, we can easily accommodate 60 guests. Under special situations we can accommodate up to 70 attendees, but that is the most guests we can comfortably support.
  3. Are the wedding ceremony site and the reception site separate?
    • They can be. One option is once the ceremony is over and the guests have left the Wedding Pavillion site for it to be set up for a reception in less than 30 minutes. Guests typically move off to the pond area where a bar is set up with refreshments while pictures are taken. Receptions can also be hosted at the front of the Inn on the paver patio which is separate from the ceremony site – this option is only available for Destination Weddings.
  4. Is your wedding venue covered in case of rain?
    • No, our wedding venue is not covered and we do not have a covered option. When booking the venue you need to understand that it is a rain or shine reservation.
  5. Can we have a wedding without reserving rooms?
    • Elopements and weddings under 40 guests are not required to reserve rooms. However, there is no changing room available and the wedding would be limited to be held between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  6. Can we book the whole inn?
    • Booking the whole inn is the best way to host your wedding at Eden Vale Inn. You get a greater window, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., to host up to a six-hour wedding and more freedom on the grounds for your guests. This option does require a two night minimum stay.
  7. What do we get for the wedding venue fee?
    • If you book the whole inn you get the most value. You will have access to the full property for you and your registered guests for the whole time you stay with us. During your wedding day, you and your invited guests will be able to enjoy the full property during your designated wedding time. If you book only some of the rooms you will get access to the wedding pavilion and specified garden areas but not the full property or the Inn’s common areas. 
    • In all cases we will set up the Wedding Pavilion for the ceremony and then transition it to the reception site. The fee includes wedding day support, benches and tables, bar table, parking attendant, caterer support, restrooms, and garbage removal.
  8. Are there wedding rentals available at the inn?
    • The inn offers some rentals including linens (white), silverware, glassware & dishes.
  9. Can we get a discount for booking the whole inn?
    • We do not discount for booking the whole inn. You do get discounts for multi-night stays.
  10. Can we use outside vendors for our wedding?
    • Eden Vale Inn has a vendor list; however, you are allowed to use outside venders. An outside caterer must be used for the reception.
  11. Can we have a DJ or live music for dancing?
    • We do have a Sonos system on-site where you can download a playlist to play during your event. Unfortunately, many DJs do not adhere to community noise level standards so it’s not our top recommendation for music at your wedding. Live music is welcome but must be approved prior to the event date.
  12. Can we have non-guests visit the property before or after the wedding?
    • Outside of the time reserved for your wedding you cannot have non-guests of the Inn on the property unless you have arranged for it in advance. An additional charge may accrue depending on the situation.  Vendors are allowed on the property per the wedding event agreement, usually two hours prior and one hour after the event. 
  13. Can the Inn cater the reception?
    • We only provide breakfast for registered guests. You must use a caterer if you are holding a reception. You can use a caterer of your choice or we can provide you a list of local caterers.
  14. Can we bring our own alcohol?
    • You must purchase beer and wine from the Inn.
  15. Can we smoke on the grounds?
    • We are a non-smoking facility and smoking is not allowed.
  16. How late are non-guests of the inn allowed to stay at the wedding reception?
    • Non-guests who are not part of cleanup must leave the property at the conclusion of the event.
    • Quiet hours begin at 10 p.m. and low lighting after 11.p.m
