Are children welcome? Absolutely!
What should I wear? Feel fancy! We’re going for the “Festive / Cocktail” dress code vibe. Have fun. Leave your jeans at home, ties will have company but are not required. Ladies, if it’s sunny, a lot of the festivities will be on the grass and outside (thin heels might be challenging). In the event of rain, festivities will be indoors, but intermediate zones (between cars and such) are all outside, so we recommend shoes that you don’t mind getting a little bit muddy and an umbrella or two. In addition, it tends to be very cool at night (in the 40s) so bring layers!
Do you have a gift registry? You are the gift. Your presence at our wedding is a huge gift to us and we’re excited to be able to celebrate with you. So many of you are traveling from far away and even helping with the wedding itself. If you insist, we’ve set up a honeypot here for David and Kayta household improvements and possibly a vacation?!
Can we bring our dog? Please leave your four legged friends at home.
Travel & Transportation
Green Valley Farm + Mill is in Sonoma County, between the towns of Graton and Guerneville, about 80 miles north of the San Francisco and Oakland Airports. The Santa Rosa Airport, just 13 miles away, has limited flights from Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. The city of Santa Rosa, and to a lesser extent Sebastopol, are our closest transportation hubs.
If you are flying in to SFO or Oakland, we recommend renting a car at the airport. This is the easiest, most flexible way to get to and around Sonoma County. The Santa Rosa Airport Express shuttle runs to and from the Oakland and San Francisco Airports to a central location in Santa Rosa. Private shuttles to and from both Bay Area airports can be arranged through Western Eagle Shuttle. Uber and Lyft are active in and around Sebastopol especially on the weekends.
Getting to the Farm
Google maps is usually reliable getting people to 13024 Green Valley Rd. But just in case… We are located 4 miles west down Green Valley Road from Highway 116 (Gravenstein Hwy) and about 14 minutes from downtown Sebastopol. From Hwy 116, head west down Green Valley Rd. 3.5 miles past the Manzana Apple processing plant, Green Valley Road reaches Harrison Grade Rd and veers right. Stay right to continue on Green Valley Road. In a half mile you'll see the main driveway of the property to your right, marked 13024 with a big stonework mailbox triangle at the driveway entry. Turn right and head down the long paved driveway to the wedding!
where to stay
We’re between the towns of Sebastopol, Forestville, and Occidental, and about 30 mins from Santa Rosa, the county seat. There are ample quaint Air BnB options and few hotels in the towns and rural areas surrounding us. March is offseason around here, so rates should be pretty reasonable.
Graton, Forestville, Occidental & Guerneville
These are the closest little towns surround the farm. Each has a unique character.
Occidental a wooded town about 10 minutes away, Occidental has the various Air-Bnb options, the Occidental Lodge, the Union Hotel’s cottages, and a beloved local breakfast place. It is also close to the famous Wild Flour Bakery, which is perfectly situated on your way to the ocean!
Guerneville, also about 10 mins away, is perched on the banks of the Russian River and has ample private vacation rentals.
Graton, also a 10-minute drive, is a sweet, unincorporated town with a cozy main street that has a great breakfast place and late-night bar & eatery, and is surrounded by vineyards and wineries. There are no hotels in Graton, but plenty of Air BnB’s.
For groceries, the nearest to us is Andy’s Produce Market.
Sebastopol, a larger town of about 12,000, is about 15 minutes from the farm. Sebastopol is bustling with all amenities. For a hotel room, check out the Sebastopol Inn, or the Fairfield Inn and Suites. Sebastopol has as Whole Foods and the Community Market in the center of town for groceries.
We're about 30 minutes from downtown Santa Rosa, a city of 200,000. Santa Rosa has the most standard hotel options, and quite possibly the best burrito in the world.
Camping on the land
Pitching a tent or camping in your car here on the farm is also an option. We have nice outdoor showers and a kitchen in the Farmhouse for you to cook in. The weather is changeable in March (it can be wet and cold, or sunny and springy). Campers should pack accordingly! Let us know if you’re planning on camping.
Things to do in Sonoma County
Make a thing of it! Sonoma County is a playground for natural and culinary adventures — giant redwoods, dramatic ocean bluffs, decent surfing, seaside oyster shacks, hundreds of miles of trails, and the best wine and food in California. A local restaurant, Lowell's, recently commissioned an awesome area map with recommendations on the best local hikes, and rootsy restaurants and wineries. You can find the map here.
