The Ahwahnee®

The Ahwahnee exteriorThe Ahwahnee® is revered as one of America’s great national park lodges.  At this grand, world-class hotel, Ahwahnee weddings are distinguished by an unforgettable setting for intimate ceremonies and receptions.  The Ahwahnee was built in 1927 on a site selected for its breathtaking orientation to several of Yosemite’s “greatest hits” – Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and Glacier Point.  Imagine saying your vows to one another on a beautiful lawn with towering trees, cliffs and waterfalls as your backdrop, hosting an elegant outdoor cocktail reception with views of Glacier Point, and savoring a four-course banquet in a private room in the hotel's solarium. The Ahwahnee presents many happily-ever-after ways to create and celebrate a truly perfect day.

Yosemite Lodge at the Falls®

Wed at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls and you’ll say your vows steps from the highest waterfall in North America.  As Yosemite Falls cascades from thousands of feet above, your love will reign over your friends and family in the relaxed, informal atmosphere of Yosemite Lodge at the Falls.  With a central location in stunning Yosemite Valley, it’s an ideal venue for you, your wedding party and your guests. From late Spring through Summer, woods-and-lawn-lined patios provide romantic reception settings. During Fall and Winter, intimate receptions can be held indoors in rooms with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows. Indoors or out, your guests will enjoy breathtaking views of Yosemite Falls and immediate access to Yosemite Valley recreation.

Wawona® Hotel

Rich with magical Victorian splendor, Wawona Hotel has the romantic ambience of a bygone era.  The perfect place for an elegant, fairytale wedding or special occasion, the Wawona was originally built in 1879, as evidenced by its showy, wraparound verandas and New England style architecture.  Outdoor receptions are a favorite on the Wawona’s lush green lawns.

With three walls of French doors that beautifully frame the picturesque scenery of the surrounding grounds, the Sunroom is perfect for indoor receptions. Guests can freely move between the Sunroom and the Veranda, enjoying views of Wawona’s wildflower-covered meadows and Yosemite's only golf course.  Just up the road, the oldest living things on the planet – the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias – stand as towering examples of the enduring power of love.

"Having our wedding in The Ahwahnee was the best we could ever hope for. Almost 8 years later, our guests still talk about the attention to detail, and genuine hospitality everyone at Yosemite provided. From the bus driver/naturalist to the hotel staff and excellent pastry cook. We hope to have many anniversary celebrations with The Ahwahnee and Yosemite as backdrops. Winter is the best time to visit. Everything just seems to slow down, and stop in time."
