Durham Ranch in St. Helena, Calif., is a wonderfully versatile Napa Valley wedding venue. The crisp-white walls and vaulted ceilings serve as a blank canvas, so each couple marrying there can easily put their own unique stamp on the space. To illustrate just how versatile the venue is, we've found six very different ways to utilize the space for your wedding reception.
Reception #1: Suspended Greenery Chandeliers (above)
Create some major "wow" factor by hanging large chandeliers of fresh greenery above the reception tables.

Beautiful wood dinner tables are too pretty to cover up with linens! Simply add wood slat chairs and string lights and you've got the perfect rustic-yet-elegant celebration.

Reception #6: Whimsical
This couple chose long wooden farm tables paired with two types of bentwood chairs; the custom-made table runners were screenprinted with different whimsical illustrations, which served as the table "numbers."
