The spirit of intimate wine weddings

Our mission is to take what would be a short visit to the courthouse for a wedding dryly administrated by a complete stranger, and catapult its abounding joy into the stratosphere for five hours, enhanced by beautiful surroundings, fabulous wines, and delicious food, all shared with your beloved inner circle.

  • Much like our San Luis Obispo County Courthouse wedding policy, the max number of attendees is six plus the special couple- eight total
  • Intimate Wine Weddings take place Monday through Thursday when the crowds are minimal, and tasting rooms are excited and happy to welcome your esteemed group
  • Our pristine white stretch limo- like a living room on wheels with its raised roof and fifth door- transforms your wedding day into a memorable wine tour after the ceremony…or does it take your wine tour and turn it into a memorable wedding? Either way it is an unforgettable day you’ll always treasure
  • John Ziegler is your wedding officiant- ordained and sanctioned by Universal Life Church. He’s also personally driven over 1,000 wine tours on the Central Coast. As an average comparison, an officiant or a pastor may charge $250 and up
  • Write your own vows, or John will help you frame your ceremony exactly as you would like. He can help with many resources, and a decade and a half spent as a professional writer
  • Pro-quality photos come with your tour. The photos throughout this site and Elite Wine Tours Paso’s website are all shot by John Ziegler
  • Included in the hourly rate:
    • Immaculate eight passenger, white five-door limo with awesome A/C
    • Ceremony by ordained officiant
    • Sparkling wine
    • Plenty of bottled water, and clean tablecloths
    • Pro-quality photos of the entire day sent to your email via Dropbox link
    • John Ziegler’s encyclopedic knowledge of Central Coast wineries accumulated over 1,000 wine tours since 2005
