Best Mendocino Wedding Venues

Mendocino Botanical Gardens

Known for its breathtaking gardens and peekaboo ocean views, this location is very deserving to make it onto this list. They have multiple ceremony sites that will give you the exact vibe you’re hoping for. So whether you want more ocean views, or even want to get married in a Dahlia Garden, this location brings nature into every aspect of your big day.

Private Estate

If you’re craving serious luxury and isolation – renting a house might be a great bet for you. We recently documented a wedding here at a private estate and it was seriously gorgeous.

Cypress Grove Park

Love State parks? This is definitely a location for you to consider. Known for its tall cypress trees and ocean views, this location has a little bit of everything!

MacCallum House

This list would not be complete without talking about MacCallum House Weddings. With any of these locations, you get stunning ocean views or some other variation of nature. But what makes MacCallum House special is the incredible Victorian House that this venue boasts. Of course, this location is excellent if you’re having a larger wedding (Think 50+ people) and want a space that is all-inclusive. They are incredibly prepared for all weather types and can accommodate your dream wedding with ease.

The Heritage House

Lastly, but certainly not least, is The Heritage House. Nestled in the forest with more dramatic views of the bluffs on this list, this wedding venue is truly exquisite. They have a gazebo directly on the edge of a cliff which makes an incredibly memorable wedding day.
