The perfect recipe for a successful destination wedding is getting away to a gorgeous, relaxing location and enjoying easy, convenient planning and coordination. This romantic celebration shouldn’t bring you extra stress. Here at Kennolyn, we’ve perfected the art of partnering with couples from a distance and then, once the event arrives, welcoming their families and friends as our own so everyone can dive right into the party and enjoy immersive connections all weekend long.
Retreat into the Northern California Mountains for a Perfect Wedding Weekend
Not far from San Francisco, the Santa Cruz Mountains rise above some of the most beautiful views in Northern California. Shhhh. You would never even guess that we’re just a short drive to the Bay Area’s urban sprawl; tucked away here, we have everything we need for your lavish, no-stress wedding day. We’ve been hosting events since 1995. Planning and actualizing one-of-a-kind weddings for each and every couple has become our daily passion.
It helps that we are in an area that is so full of life and creativity. Winegrowers have been cultivating these mountains for more than 175 years, and we now have more than 70 wineries to explore throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is a region of culinary excellence and innovation, and that expertise thrives in our very own kitchen. Imagine you and your guests enjoying world-class food and wine in our outdoor courtyard, illuminated with delicate string lights and surrounded by coast redwoods that offer their own natural decor.
Personalizing Your Ceremony and Reception Is a Journey Itself
At Kennolyn, we have sites and options to suit diverse tastes and styles. And our venues are versatile, so your unique personalities can come to life in your ceremony and reception.
Our customizable ceremony settings include:
Our lawn garden beyond the Hilltop Hacienda veranda | An intimate redwood grove with seating on modern benches
The rustic town square | Our natural redwood forest amphitheater with log seating
Kennolyn’s Stone Creek Village is an inclusive venue where your guests can settle in for relaxation and activities that bring them together—all while gearing up for the wedding day events. Here is the perfect opportunity for a naturally rustic, cozy, and graceful reception in a true mountain getaway. We can make use of indoor lodge and outdoor courtyard spaces to offer you and your guests a full and spacious celebration.
We Offer Everything You Need and More Than You Could Imagine
Our event packages offer all-inclusive advantages, such as in-house catering, generous accommodations, and the amenities to create your dream setting without having to involve outside vendors. Our Destination Wedding Package offers clear pricing based on your guest count (up to 300 at the ceremony and reception; lodging for up to 120). What makes our package really unique is the opportunity for customization and personalized elements. We are happy to help you design an original menu based on your favorite foods or your wedding theme. We love to design our ceremony and reception sites to suit your vision and to get creative with things we’ve never done before.
In addition to the amazing opportunities for fun and entertainment throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, we’re happy to offer an exciting range of activities and adventures right here on our 200 vibrant acres. When wedding groups come to stay for the weekend, they love to explore our pool, basketball and tennis courts, putting green, swimming pool, extensive hiking trails, and ping pong tables. Some couples even offer a yoga class for their guests or organize a ropes course activity for the group to climb up into the Northern California redwoods for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to challenge their courage and their trust in each other.
Our full-time wedding coordinators are excited to start discussing your ideal wedding dream. You won’t be alone in the planning, and once the weekend arrives, we’ll support you and your whole group through every step of the journey.
