If you are planning The Mountain Terrace wedding, read below for an extensive guide to help in your wedding planning! It is one of my favorite wedding venues in San Francisco and is perfect for any wedding small or large. Check out the photos and videos below to help in your decision to get a little feel for how pretty this wedding venue is!

Why The Mountain Terrace Weddings​

The Mountain Terrace, located in Woodside, CA, is one of best outdoor wedding venues in the San Francisco Bay Area, known for its scenic bay views and stunning redwood grove. With decades old trees acting as a wedding ceremony backdrop, it is the ideal setting for anyone wanting natural beauty and fresh air. A fire pit, swing, and the giant open lawn all help add to the casual feel at this scenic venue. 

The Mountain Terrace is one of the few wedding venues in the San Francisco Bay Area that allows for just a morning wedding ceremony. Popular if you are doing a restaurant reception, for example, the morning ceremony allows you to have the best of both worlds. Many Couples choose a more intimate outdoor ceremony with close friends and family before going to a much larger function at a restaurant, for example.

The Mountain Terrace Wedding Locations​

The Mountain Terrace is known for its grand lawn outfront, that can accomodate up to 300 seated guests. In addition, the backdrop of the redwood grove serves as the perfect ceremony location to say your vows. The Great Lawn is where the ceremonies are all held.

Reception Hall

For those wishing to keep things indoors, their rustic lodge provides a cozy atmosphere for the reception. Warm candle lighting and a string lit patio help compliment this wedding venue along the Peninsula, as well as heaters outdoors for those wanting to have a safe balance between an indoor and outdoor reception.

The Evening Sky

One of the best things about the Mountain Terrace, in my opinion, is the ability to see the stars at night. Couple this with the fire pit, giant sequoias and redwoods to block the wind, and you have the perfect setting for an evening stroll when you want to catch your breath from all the dancing inside! Situated around the Santa Cruz Mountains, there is little light pollution around this area and allows you to fully appreciate the nature of this location. We often forget to look up sometimes (I know I do!) and this wedding venue out in nature allows us to appreciate the world and the people we surround ourselves with.
