Placerita Canyon State Park Wedding

Noelle and Michael Noelle and Michael! I was honored to be their wedding officiant today in the beautiful Placerita Canyon State Park in Newhall. We gathered under a huge, ancient oak tree for the ceremony which included “Storybook Love” from The Princess Bride, “The Day the Saucers Came” by Neil Gaiman, and beautiful personal vows that the bride and groom each wrote. The couple looked so happy together. I’m truly a lucky weddding officiant, since I keep connecting with such great folks.

I’m so glad I now know about Placerita Canyon State Park. It’s the location where the 1842 California Gold Rush began! I expected it to be super windy, but I think the valley protected us from the gusts. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an outdoor wedding venue for a smallish wedding. Most of the guests had seating on the benches under the tree, and the younger folk just stood. There’s a small nature center, museum and gift shop to peruse, as well as guided tours. A nice activity might be some guided tours for wedding guests while the wedding party takes photos after the ceremony and before the meal is served.
