Weddings and Retreats

Weddings (Indoor or Outdoor):

    Whether you are looking for a beautiful mountain chapel or an outdoor venue Mt Baldy Village Church can make your wedding day a beautiful experience.

    Our Sanctuary has been called one of the most beautiful chapels in Southern California and for good reason. Our Chalet style church with large windows framed in river rock and aged knotty pine look out to the Angeles National Forest that makes it seem as if you've not just driven up the mountain, but that you have entered another country and another era.

    But don't let the comfort and beauty of an old fashioned chapel in the woods fool you.  Hidden behind the wood is a state of the art sound and video projection system that will allow everyone in every seat to hear your wedding clearly, and to see those pictures of you and your fiancee that you've prepared for them.

    Our church seats a maximum of 140 in a combination of cushioned pews and chairs in the fireside and three level balcony areas.  Use the "Contact Us" page to request a wedding package and we'll send you everything you need for a picture perfect wedding (Please remember to send us your e-mail address or phone number).  You can also contact our church office directly at 909-946-4366.

    We rarely book more than one wedding on any day and if we do we allow three hours between weddings to make sure you are not rushed on your most important day.  Limited reception service is also available following your wedding.

Rehearsal Dinner or Wedding Receptions

    Our church can comfortably accommodate reception groups up to 70. With your catered meal or use of our kitchen your group will enjoy the seclusion of our beautiful patio, it's 100 foot high rock wall and the relaxing sound of Bear Canyon Creek as it runs along side the patio. We can provide your reception with a combination of our park benches, folding chairs and tables to save you some work and expense.  

    Wedding Rehearsal Dinners or Receptions can also be arranged at the Sweet Pea Ranch just 3 miles down Mt Baldy Road.  Contact them at  Ask for Tes or Stephanie; they're good friends and would love to help you achieve the most wonderful reception experience.

    Our Outdoor Venue is located just 1/2 mile from the church, is easily accessable and has an amazing view.  It's a short hike (about 60 yards) with a moderate accent (about 100 feet) above Glendora Ridge Road.  It's not wheelchair accessable but it's not a difficult path either.  Both formal (as shown) and relaxed weddings (guests seated on the ground) are wonderful experiences.

Thinking of a One or Two day Retreat?

    Our church has a full kitchen, two Breakout rooms, a loft seating area and a cozy Fireside Area as well as a beautiful patio area complete with Bar-B-Que.  Along side the patio Bear Canyon Creek runs most of the year creating a pleasant and relaxing atmoshere for you to enjoys God's creation. The patio has six park benches and folding chairs are available for you to have outdoor worship time if you desire.  The 100 foot high rock wall opposite the patio makes the seclusion of the patio a place you will remember.  For overnight retreats you can rough it by bringing your own bedding and "Bunking" in the Breakout rooms or on the cushioned pews or arrange or you can find comfortable nearby accomodations at the Mt Baldy Buckhorn Lodge Motel or the cabins of the Mt Baldy Lodge .
