It’s Your Wedding!                       We’re Here to Help.

The town of Cazadero is approximately 1/2 mile from St. Colman’s Outdoor Church and is located just off the beaten path of the Russian River vacation area.

The Outdoor Church was built by the community in 1965 to accommodate the summer folks who flowed out the door and down the steps of the little wood church in town.

The spot is so beautiful, we had to share it with you for your wedding.

We want your wedding to be as special as our Outdoor Church, so here are some details that may interest you:

1) The fee for using the church for your wedding is $500. 

$500 and a signed Use Agreement are required to hold the date when you make your reservation; the $500 fee is refundable up to 30 days of your wedding.  If you need to employ our parish priest, Father Luis, for your ceremony, the fee is $150.  Father is not available on Sunday or after 12:00 noon on Saturday.  

2) The Outdoor Church accommodates 250 guests.

3) Parking is adjacent to the Grove.

4) The wedding party may come to the Outdoor Church the day before your wedding for rehearsal.

5) If it rains the day of the wedding, you are welcome to use our little Indoor Church in town.

6) The wedding party is responsible for set-up and clean-up, and a local person is available for clean-up for a fee.

Other local resources, such as venues for reception, caterers, florists and caterers are available and listed on the Resources page of this site. Lovely venues for Non-Catholic weddings can also be found on this page.
