Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

With its magnificent soaring granite cliffs and backcountry trails, Yosemite National Park is a cherished natural treasure. It’s also a destination wedding locale like no other.

One of the most memorable places at Yosemite to tie the knot is Tenaya Lodge, the first hotel to bring the luxuries of a classic resort to this awe-inspiring wilderness. The four-diamond lodge is a masterful blend of the earthy and the contemporary, featuring natural materials like wood, stone, and leather that create a rich, warm ambiance. The overall impression is one of refined comfort.

Tenaya’s event spaces also embody rustic elegance, and put Yosemite’s scenic wonders on display during your celebration. The Terrace, a second-story deck fringed with feathery pine trees, makes a lovely outdoor ceremony site. After the vows, guests descend a flight of stairs to the open-sided Pavilion for another angle of the gorgeous scenery. Cocktails and dinner are served beneath the Pavilion’s wood ceiling, which is trimmed with twinkle lights. If you prefer an indoor affair, then reserve the 10,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom. Tasteful and modern, it boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the stunning mountains carpeted in sugar pines. For a smaller reception, book the Forest View Room, affording equally beautiful vistas.

Intimate ceremonies are magical in the Wedding Garden, a private lawn nestled among trees and enclosed by a wooden fence and a stone archway. The staff can also arrange an off-the-beaten-path ceremony—just ask.

The lodge is a haven for green weddings—the banquet rooms are Double Silver LEED-certified, and the cuisine is local and sustainable. Tenaya has several seasonal dining choices: the casual Jackalope’s Bar and Grill for fun after-parties; Parkside Deli for delicious grab-and-go options; and the family-friendly Timberloft Pizzeria. Each of these has its own distinctive atmosphere and can be reserved for your rehearsal dinner.

Yosemite’s rugged grandeur, made famous by photographer Ansel Adams’ indelible images, will enhance your own wedding photos, too. Tenaya’s knowledgeable event planning professionals are happy to arrange activities for your guests,Nature lovers can ride horses, hike to a waterfall, or simply take in the spectacular sunsets and dazzling starscapes. Sports enthusiasts might want to golf, bike, or ice skate. Everyone will love the Yosemite 360 tours, which will whisk you to the park's most spectacular sights along with an expert guide (and a trail lunch!). Meanwhile, the newlyweds might opt to unwind at the chic Ascent Spa. Spa packages, along with 12 treatment rooms, steam rooms and a sauna, offer a wealth of pampering.

Guests will appreciate the updated accommodations in the Main Lodge: All 249 rooms and suites have a rustic contemporary design, luxury bedding, plush carpet, and many more amenities. For newlyweds who want some quality alone time, we recommend one of the more secluded cottage-style rooms or exclusive private Explorer cabins with fireplaces and outdoor seating. Think of Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite as “Happiness in the High Sierra!”
