If you live in Fresno or around central California and are looking for a wedding venue, this ones for you! These are some of my personal favorite Fresno wedding venues that we’ve photographed so all of the photos you see here are from weddings we’ve photographed at these wedding venues.
We thought it would be nice to compile a list for couples to search through as they begin planning their wedding day. I grew up in the Central Valley so I love being able to photograph so many gorgeous weddings in what feels like my own backyard. Also sidebar, your own backyard is a great venue too! Post-pandemic we’ve photographed a good handful of more intimate, backyard weddings and we are here for all of that!
Without further ado, here are a few of our favorite Fresno Wedding Venues!
We love working with Kings River Winery and their staff! Might be a little bias because our very own lead photographer, Stephanie married her husband Glenn there in December of 2020 and I got to photograph their big day! It was the best!! And over the years we’ve captured more than a few weddings at KRW. And bonus? They have GREAT WINES! I am definitely a wine lover and the KRW wines definitely fit the bill! I also love that this venue has the option for both indoor and outdoor wedding activities.
R Weddings & Events
The photo below is from The House with R Weddings and Events but this killer team has several venues throughout the valley! The R Weddings Team is great to work with and all of their venues are thoughtfully designed to curate a specific vibe for each wedding venue. The limitless options with this team makes it hard to beat!
Wolf Lakes Park is located just east of Fresno and is set back off the road and along a gorgeous little lake! There are two sides to the venue; the lake side and the garden side. Each side of the venue has its own unique vibe perfect for your wedding. Wolf Lakes also has delicious food! Seriously the MHP Team has never had a bad meal at WLP. If you’re looking for an outdoor wedding venue and a venue that does almost everything for you, WLP is one to check out!
Evanelle Vineyards is a newer venue in the Fresno area and we photographed our first wedding there in October of 2021. We were really impressed with the attention to detail that went into every aspect of this venue. From the gorgeous beams indoors to the famous wooden doors on the exterior, this venue has so much potential for you to create your dream wedding with any theme you want!
The Gardens in Tulare, CA is such a lovely central California wedding venue! Located behind what used to be a nursery, The Gardens has the perfect garden wedding venue look! Their staff is incredible to work with and we love the intimate feel of this venue. It has a backyard feel even though you’re at a venue! Plus their food is bomb, the staff is so great to work with and everything is just so pretty!
Grace Barn is a part of the Kings River Winery family, but we felt like it deserved its own recognition. This beautiful and rustic barn Fresno wedding venues gives the perfect country vibe and has fantastic landscaping. Like the winery venue, Grace Barn also has the ability to have indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions so it’s perfect for any time of year!
The Manor Estate is an exquisite choice when looking at Fresno wedding venues! There’s an amazing space for a front lawn ceremony and tons of lawn for a gorgeous outdoor reception. This venue has the feel of a backyard, home wedding with an elevated vibe. The mansion feel adds elegance while the garden vibes and decor around the home offer romantic feelings for you and your guests.
Whitney’s Wild Oak Ranch is perfect for your country wedding! Set on a ranch with an old victorian style home, beautiful foliage and a great indoor and outdoor reception space, this venue makes you feel right at home. Wedding venues that feel like home offer an intimate vibe to your wedding and creates an atmosphere of comfort for you and your guests as you celebrate your marriage. We love this rustic and romantic wedding venue.
A short drive from Fresno, Pines Resort at Bass Lake is a gorgeous choice for your outdoor wedding! The chalets offer spaces for couples to get ready together or separately. The outdoor ceremony space overlooks the lake and it is stunning in all seasons. And yes we know this because we’ve photographed weddings here in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall! Then they have a gorgeous outdoor tented area with lighting that overlooks Bass Lake. This Fresno Wedding Venue had to make the list!
