Mendocino Weddings at the Stanford Inn by the sea

A Romantic Mendocino Wedding at Stanford Inn … overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Of the major life events, weddings are often the most joyous – the joining of two people, two families, in the company of friends. A wonderful location for weddings, The Stanford Inn Eco-Resort will work with you to create a tailor-made romantic wedding. Food service can include a wine and or champagne reception, appetizers, seated brunch, lunch, or dinner.

Wedding Sizes

We can accommodate weddings and receptions from two (we will provide the witness and officiant) to 72. Weddings are often stressful and suggest that you be sure just to spend time with those you may have not seen for a while. If you would like we can provide a space for a small welcoming reception the night before.

Ceremony Locations

You may choose to have your ceremony in Mancha’s Herb Garden, among the raised beds of our organic gardens, or on the lawn. Indoors, we can arrange a ceremony in front of the fireplace in the the Lobby and provide seating for up to 70 people. If you prefer, you may choose the Big River Room for up to 50 people in theatre seating or the Mendocino Room for up to 20.

Reception Locations

  • The Ravens Dining Room (available for lunch only) Seating up to 72.
