Romantic

It's easy to see why so many people choose a Yosemite wedding. Imagine exchanging your vows with Yosemite Falls as your backdrop, with Half Dome and El Capitan as your witnesses. Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life, and Yosemite will add to the experience. 

Of course Madera County has even more amazing venues should you look for a wedding outside the park. Beautiful vineyards and orchards, resorts nestled amidst tall pines, or the beauty of your ceremony reflected in Bass Lake. The options for your wedding are endless in Madera County: California's Gateway to Yosemite.

We have every aspect covered. For your rehearsal dinner, view your options on our dining page.

You'll want somewhere romantic to stay together on the first night of your new life together. Our lodging page is sure to have the perfect retreat.

If you're looking for any other help, let us be your guides. We look forward playing a part of your big day.
