Dawn Ranch Lodge in Guerneville, California is one seriously adorable spot for a wedding, especially if you’re going for a rustic or vintage vibe. This place is on the banks of the Russian River, nestled among the redwoods, and it even has an apple orchard! Seriously swoon-worthy grounds: 15 acres of beautiful countryside. They’ve even got 53 cute cabins and cottages too, perfect for your wedding guests! There are seriously so many cool spots for squeeee-worthy photo ops, you won’t even believe it.
There are many spots to choose from that would be perfect for your ceremony: in the apple orchard, under the redwoods in the meadow, by the pool, or even in the main lodge. Dawn Ranch Lodge can handle up to 500 guests for a ceremony, but they only have lodging for 119 overnight guests. Don’t worry, there’s a lot of other lodging in the area if your party is larger than this!
They have an amazing kitchen garden and can handle any flavor of reception. Since the setting is mostly outdoors, BBQs are popular here, and they even host super fun campfires!
You can hold your reception poolside, at the lodge, or even at their boathouse.
Seriously, this is one totally OMG spot for a wedding. Over 300 couples have gotten hitched at Dawn Ranch Lodge! And my fave, The Knot magazine, rated them as one of the top ten outdoor venues in Northern California.
Since this is a popular spot, it can book up early. For availability and to discuss your plans, please contact the reservation staff by phone at (707) 869-0656, or via email at email@example.com. You can also submit an availability request through a contact form on the Dawn Ranch Lodge website.
