Yosemite Valley Lodge




As the closest property to Yosemite Falls, Yosemite Lodge at the Falls is an idyllic spot for brides seeking the comforts of a hotel with all the natural beauty of the wilderness. In 1998, the main complex was redesigned with an emphasis on glass and wood detailing to blend harmoniously with its surroundings. Landscaping of indigenous trees, shrubs and wildflowers further reflect the natural beauty of Yosemite Valley and make an unforgettable venue for the best day of your life. Say your vows beneath towering trees with Yosemite Falls creating a memorable backdrop for your ceremony. Guests will later enjoy cocktails on the Cliff Room Patio, surrounded by the grandeur of the national park’s unmatched wilderness. Your reception takes place in the Mountain Room, featuring soaring ceilings, rich woods and picture windows that bring the outdoors in. As the sun sets behind the mountains, you’ll dine, dance and mingle with your guests in a truly magnificent mountain location.
