Summer Soirees: Where to hold weddings, anniversaries & celebrations

THE BEAUTY OF THE FOOTHILLS AND Sierra is perfect for weddings, anniversaries, parties and celebrations. There also are charming B&Bs, deluxe hotels, historic buildings— even sailboats and yachts. Rates are reasonable compared with the rest of Northern California.

The Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley was the oldest, largest and richest gold mine in California. It was a showcase in the mining area and still has picturesque grounds, including a clubhouse, extensive lawns, fountains, a reflection pool and flowering gardens.

The Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City is a one-of-a-kind venue that retains the character of the gold-rush days. It is ideal for weddings, receptions, parties and meetings.
