Weddings and Receptions

For larger weddings, consider holding your event at the spacious Bridge Bay Marina. Our CookHouse restaurant and Blue Oak Room can accommodate 150 guests for grand banquets, and each venue features lengthy windows with stunning water views throughout.

The Vista outdoor area on the grounds of the marina can easily seat 200 people, (and tents are welcome), and all of the corresponding activities such as the:

  • Engagement party
  • Bridal shower
  • Bachelor/bachelorette party

  • Ceremony

The site can also accommodate fun activities like wave runner rides or moonlit honeymoon cruises through the lake.

Want something small and intimate? Consider renting a houseboat for your private wedding and ceremony!
