General Vallejo’s Home Overview

Plan a fairytale wedding at General Vallejo’s Home: a picturesque venue located in the beautiful, historic town of Sonoma in the heart of California wine country. This gorgeous estate was built in 1851 by General Vallejo, who lived there with his wife for over 35 years. He named it “Lachryma Montis” (Latin for “mountain tear”) after a free flowing spring that the local Indians had called “Chiucuyem” (crying mountain). Today, the beautiful home and grounds are a carefully preserved California Historical Landmark. Say “I do” on its picturesque lawn, where lush gardens and the home’s charming exterior will provide an enchanting backdrop for your romantic ceremony. Share your first kiss as newlyweds in this breathtaking setting and then escape for a bit to take your wedding photographs all around the scenic property. With an abundance of natural beauty and historic charm, General Vallejo’s Home is a wonderful place to hold your wedding ceremony.
