Beautiful vineyard properties. Outdoor spaces overlooking the ocean. Fancy ballrooms with Hollywood charm. There are so many ways to plan a wedding of your California dreams. One of the great benefits of choosing a West Coast wedding venue is that your special day can be held any time of the year with consistent sunny, warm weather that cooperates nearly every day of the year. California is also the epicenter of the fashion and beauty worlds allowing access to some of the best wedding attire and makeup artists in the country. Destination weddings can add up quickly, but with non-traditional venues like these you can find budget-friendly options that won’t eat into your honeymoon funds.
The Falls Event Center has two locations in California—one in Fresno and one in Elk Grove (near Sacramento). Both have architecturally-crafted buildings surrounded by beautiful landscape and a courtyard with a waterfall. Every wedding reservation offers A/V technology, round and banquet tables with tablecloths and chairs, free parking, professional event staff and security, plus no sales tax or service charges.
The Alexandria Ballrooms, in the heart of Hollywood, first opened in 1906 and have since hosted presidents, dignitaries, and movie stars, including the site of Charlie Chaplain’s wedding. Recently restored, each of the three iconic event venues has affordable rates with outside food and beverage permitted and no corkage fee.
Campuses are also a great choice for California weddings. The University of Redlands in Southern California is home to the iconic Memorial Chapel, which holds 1,300 guests and is often used for wedding ceremonies, as well as Administration Lawn that is an opportune spot for photo shoots and receptions with views of Memorial Chapel and the mountains in the distance.
