5 Top Spots for Destination Weddings on The North West Coast

The California North Coast remains our favorite wedding destination in the world, and couples from all over have also taken note. Whether it’s the beaches, the redwoods or the coastal views of our coastal region, the North Coast is gaining popularity as a destination wedding spot. From natural beauty to historical settings, the North Coast has a wide range of options for couples looking for the perfect location for their dream wedding. The five venues below are some of the most popular and the most breathtaking. Wedding Rock at Patrick’s Point Near Trinidad, CA, Wedding Rock at Patrick’s Point earned its name when the caretaker of the park was married at the site in the early 1900s and a trend began. With the crashing surf below, dozens of couples make their wedding vows on Wedding Rock every year. This site is great for a small wedding ceremony, but it isn’t ideal if you want your older relatives to make it — the site requires a somewhat long climb up stone steps. The view is breathtaking and you will make the most of your wedding photographer. Moonstone Beach One of Humboldt County’s most popular beaches, Moonstone Beach is an easily accessible location. Both horses and dogs are allowed on the beach, and there is plenty of room for a large wedding. Mid-summer is one of the best times to catch the beach for your North Coast destination wedding, as it is less likely to rain. Try to time your wedding so it isn’t at the height of high tide, as you may have less space than you anticipated. And remember — the North Coast has cold water beaches, even in the summer! Benbow Inn Possibly the most luxurious and historic hotel on the North Coast, the Benbow Historic Inn offers an elegant setting right next to the redwood haven of Avenue of the Giants. The nine-hole, par-35 Benbow Valley Golf Course is a challenge that your family and friends can enjoy, and there is an 18-hole option. Opened in 1926, the inn and resort also has a swimming pool, hiking nearby, wine tasting and a beautiful wedding venue. Agate Cove Inn Located in Mendocino County, the Agate Cove Inn is located on a bluff and it beautifully maintains two acres of coastal gardens that create a backdrop like no other for your wedding day. The flowers provide bright colors for your wedding theme, and the ocean view is spectacular. Most of the cottages at the inn are private, and every morning the inn provides a full-course breakfast. Maple Creek Winery Between the Anderson Valley and the Alexander Valley in Mendocino County, the Maple Creek Winery offers its grounds as a wedding venue among grapes meant for Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Symphony. This picturesque location is perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies. It is a family-owned winery that produces about 4,000 cases of handcrafted wines every year, and your friends and family can enjoy the wine and location when coming for your wedding.
