Mill Valley Community Center




Although just 8 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and the bustle of San Francisco, you will find a tranquil wedding venue with pastoral open space at the Mill Valley Community Center. The olive green and white wood siding building is nestled at the base of Mount Tamalpais and has the classic look of an Adirondack- style resort. The center’s main event space is the Cascade Room and you may choose to host an indoor ceremony in this room or an outdoor ceremony on the large patio on the east side of the Cascade Room. The patio has no walls or fences so you will enjoy the expansive view of the three-acre lawn. You may also pitch a tent on this large lawn if you would like to host an outdoor reception. An indoor reception in the Cascade Room is truly a thing of beauty! The cathedral style ceiling adds a regal airiness to the space and the tall windows that run the length of the room offer generous amounts of natural light. The eucalyptus board hardwood floor makes an excellent dance floor and you will dance the night away while light and merriment fills the room!
