There’s nothing like exchanging vows under large oak trees, hearing the sound of the Sacramento River rushing behind you, or ending the night with a first dance under the stars. Lucky for you, Redding is filled with some incredible wedding venues that will allow you to do just that. As a local Redding wedding photographer, I wanted to put together the ultimate Redding venue guide so you can see all your options in one easy place. Whether you’re looking for a riverside venue or something industrial indoors, you’re in the right place.

Did you know you can get married outdoors without renting a venue? It’s true! For more information, check out my Northern California elopement guide or my Mt. Shasta elopement guide to see a list of locations that allow weddings. Note that most of these places are only for small weddings and elopements.

You? You’re the kind of person that gets a lil’ teary eyed looking at an epic view…

That moment when you turn to the person you’re with and ask, “Are you seeing this?” I live for it. Places with trees and mountains and soft breezes that make you say, “I can’t believe this place exists,” I spend pretty much all of my free time searching for and exploring them.

These places have always felt like home to me. And if you’re the kind of person who also feels more at home surrounded by trees than by people? Then we’ll get along really well. The Pacific Northwest is full of secret spots that are too special to share with just anyone. But it would make me happy to share them with you on your wedding day.

If the mountains/beaches/redwood forests are calling your name, go ahead…

(I promise you won’t regret it.)

P.S. I’m Brianna. My mission is to create custom, one-of-a-kind elopement experiences in the Pacific Northwest that allow couples to fully immerse themselves in the highest levels of excitement and wonder on a day designed exclusively for them.
