San Dimas Wedding Venue
2100 Terrabonne Avenue
San Dimas, California 91773
While some wedding venues have only one attribute that makes brides say “Yes!” right away, San Dimas Canyon Golf Course has several. For starters, it offers a beautiful location at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, a tranquil ceremony area that’s just steps away from the banquet room, and a seasoned private event staff.
But the thing that most endears brides to this place may well be the terrace adjoining the banquet facility. It’s like a broad tropical veranda—open, airy and decorated with small fan palms. From here you have quite a view: a putting green along with the fairways, plus some of the grandest peaks of the San Gabriels. The tree-dotted golf course slopes gently down to a seasonal creek that descends from the mountains in winter. This is a lovely vista, both for its geology and its Inland Empire palette of greens, browns, golds and soft grays.
The recently refurbished banquet room features stylish chandeliers and sconces as well as custom uplighting, plus rich chocolate-colored carpets and molding that give the space an uptown feel. Renovated even more recently, the enclosed ceremony site has become a charming, private garden area. Guests are seated on a long lawn facing the new wedding “arch,” a spacious, white pergola bordered by flowers, blooming bushes, and other greenery. A sweet, two-tiered fountain fills one corner of the garden, and there’s another wonderful grace note: three handsome eucalyptus trees that soar like living sculptures over the far end of the lawn.
San Dimas has two lakes on site—perfect for wedding photos—but keep in mind that they’re accessible only to the couple and their photographer. For shots involving larger groups and the rest of the wedding party, the favorite spot is under a pair of massive oaks standing a stone’s throw from the banquet room. The wedding pavilion and ceremony lawn are also preferred and convenient places for posing.
If you’re hoping for a free hand with decorations, you’re in luck here. Aside from requesting that you refrain from using confetti or glitter to shower the newlyweds, they have very few restrictions. Besides the terrace and the views, brides who’ve had their wedding at San Dimas laud the staff’s catering prowess and general helpfulness. Menus are varied, and choices range from simple to elaborate. The club can also recommend reliable, experienced vendors.
From the setting and décor to the service and amenities, you’ll find that San Dimas really does provide many of the things that make a bride say “Yes!”
