Other Northern California Wedding Venues

If you’re dreaming of having a wedding at any number of Northern California wedding venues, you probably have great taste. Northern California wedding venues include wineries and vineyards, Victorian-style and historic hotels, garden and golf course venues, rustic and barn style wedding venues, and more for your wedding day.

If you’re planning to host your wedding in San Francisco or along the Sonoma Coast up high, prepare yourself for some fog. Otherwise, you’re probably going to get some great sunshine on your wedding day. Sunny weather is always favorable for your wedding day, and you can plan for the sun at most Northern California wedding venues. But if you’re planning on not having your wedding outdoors, you can consider an indoor wedding venue, so you don’t have to worry about the weather.

There are many indoor Northern California wedding venues in Napa County, Sonoma County, Santa Rosa, San Francisco and San Jose, East Bay, South Bay, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento. Maybe you’re thinking about something quirky like a museum or park, or even the zoo! Tons of businesses operate secondly as a wedding venue, and although we don’t think that’s the best choice for your wedding day, you may think otherwise. 

Sonoma & Napa Wedding Venues

When thinking about Sonoma County or Napa County wedding venues in Northern California, you might first think about a winery wedding. But did you know that there are many other stunning venues? Well, Mountain House Estate, for one, is a gorgeous outdoor venue, and we consider ourselves to be rustic elegant. But you may also be thinking about gardens, golf clubs, hotels, lodges, barns, and other bright ideas. Whatever your choice, when looking at Northern California wedding venues, there’s simply something magical about escaping from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco or Sacramento with your guests and celebrating in wine country. Maybe it’s in the countryside landscape or the wine, but we think you’ll be well suited off searching here for a venue.

San Francisco Wedding Venues

When looking at Northern California wedding venues in San Francisco, you probably want something more urban, such as a historic hotel or vies of the Golden Gate Bridge. 

The East Bay of San Francisco simply refers to the eastern shores of the San Francisco Bay. Here lies the city of Oakland, the largest city and home to countless businesses that operate secondly as a wedding venue: museums, golf clubs, hotels, and event centers. But if you venture out further to Walnut Creek or Berkley, you can also find more venues with rural charms such as wineries and barn wedding venues. 

The South Bay is also known as the Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley is the tech capital of the world and an excellent place for an upscale or urban wedding

Sacramento Wedding Venues

Sacramento is the capital of California, and it strikes a beautiful balance of urban and suburban charm. In Sacramento, Northern California wedding venues include ballrooms, clubs, golf courses, event centers, hotels, and more. If you decide to look just outside of Sacramento, you can find more rural wedding venues such as ranches, vineyards, and rustic farms.
