The Most Romantic Locations in Mendocino

Elope Mendocino's, Vanna Freeberg, shares her favorite spots

to ask "Will you? or say "I do." 


- The Cypress Grove Amy & Lincoln got married in this magical place and J. Perlman Photogrpahy captured the moment; fall in love with the images here

- Russian Gulch State Park Rugged headlands thrust out into the blue Pacific. One of the many features of the7,630 feet of ocean frontage is the "blow hole." Its formation was made by the incessant pounding of waves against the coastal headlands. A tunnel has been formed which comes inland about 200 feet and at its end the earth has caved away forming a hole 100 feet across and 60 feet deep; one can look into this flower and plant-lined pit and watch the surging sea at high tide. 

The Mendocino Bay Overlook  This little meadow sticking out above the Pacific Ocean is one of the most amazing acres in the world. Providing a breathtaking panoramic view the historic town of Mendocino Village, the mouth of Big River and the Pacific. This one of a kind setting feels both intimate and wild, but still within view of the picturesque village. 

- Jug Handle State Park watch a video and click through photos of a recent wedding here

- Mendocino Headlands State Park is home to Big River Beach and incredible ocean bluffs.

Van Damme Beach  has a little bit of everything for the lover of nature's beauty. The ten miles of lush Fern Canyon trails weave from beach through the Pygmy Forest where mature, cone-bearing cypress and pine trees stand six to eight feet tall.
