Destination Wedding Locations | The 530 Bride

When you think "destination wedding" what comes to mind?

As much as we all would love to dig our toes into the sand on a beach somewhere, an island getaway isn't exactly do-able for everyone.  A $500 plane ticket or a passport required to travel could be a deal breaker..just saying.  But for all of us who live in the beautiful Northern California area, we have a lot more to choose from than we may think.  

So here are a few little gems right here in the "530" area that offer great amenities for destination weddings: 

Harmony Ridge Lodge, Nevada City  - up to 150 people for outdoor seasonal events, 9 guest suites can sleep up to 20 people. Harmony Ridge Lodge has become well-known for weekend wedding packages, where families and friends take over the lodge and  grounds for three days of celebration and activities. The lodge also hosts week-long destination weddings. This precious time allows you to visit with friends and family ahead of time in a relaxed, beautiful location while putting the final touches on your special day — and gives you the rare opportunity afterwards for reflecting on the occasion and resting before going home
