Planning an intimate Yosemite wedding or elopement? Get ready to fall in love with a wedding venue that is private, unique and affordable – The Redwoods In Yosemite.

Charming and Convenient Wedding Location Inside Yosemite National Park

The Redwoods In Yosemite is located in the town of Wawona, close to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. It’s far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle, and yet close enough to make it an easy drive to Yosemite Valley or Glacier Point.

Wawona is situated in a quiet and scenic valley crossed by both the south fork of the Merced River and Chilnualna Creek. The area is steeped in a long history of welcoming people. It was first known as “Pallahchun” meaning “a good place to stop”. Then in 1855, the park’s first guardian, Galen Clark set up Clark’s Station here, welcoming guests with generosity and good cheer. The Redwoods In Yosemite carry on this hospitality to this day.

Wawona’s historic covered bridge is one of many beautiful backdrops for wedding photography.

In addition to the scenic locale and friendly people, there is a lot to do right here in Wawona. Visit the nearby Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. Wander up to the cascades on Chilnualna Creek, or make the longer hike to the top of Chilnualna Falls. Relax by the river, or swing your way across Wawona’s swinging bridge. Explore Yosemite’s history at the Pioneer History Center. You can even enjoy a round of golf at the Wawona Golf Course. You can do all these things and many more. Plan to enjoy everything that this little corner of Yosemite National Park has to offer.

Wedding Venues

Yosemite has a number of designated public wedding locations within the national park. These include scenic areas in Yosemite Valley, the amphitheater at Glacier Point, and the Chilnualna Falls Trailhead right in the community of Wawona.

You also have the option to host wedding receptions or rehearsal dinners in the nearby event center. This spacious facility offers indoor and outdoor seating, a catering kitchen, and indoor and outdoor fireplaces.
