Sonoma Valley Wine Country Weddings
On a quiet street in the heart of the California's Valley of the Moon, Kenwood Community Church has been welcoming visitors and celebrating affordable Sonoma Valley Weddings for over a century.
With room for 100+ guests—yet with the intimacy of a small village chapel—couples from all over the world have formalized their vows in romantic wedding ceremonies at this historic, wine country church in Sonoma Valley.
Little has changed over the years. Daylight still streams through the original antique, stained glass windows. Folks still gather each Sunday to worship, sing hymns, hear uplifting sermons while sitting in the same oak chairs that have been there since the beginning, and gather in the back garden after church under the black walnut tree.
Reminiscent of a classic New England church, the gracious façade accented by a stately steeple, bell tower and hand-carved oaken doors welcomes you and your guests and family to share a joyous, communal occasion never to be forgotten.
The calm serenity of the church is notable from the moment you cross the threshold to enter the foyer beneath the bell tower, with its rare historic murals contributed by a grateful parishioner. Notable features of the church are the antique stained glass windows, which flood the sanctuary with light and color both day and night, the classic, vintage windsor chairs that await your guests, and the classic simplicity of the chancel with its unadorned, white wooden cross above the hand carved refectory table ready to hold graceful sprays of fresh flowers.
Located in a quiet residential area, the church faces a beautifully landscaped park. A lush, green garden shaded by the spreading arms of an ancient black walnut tree yields a gracious setting for outdoor weddings and receptions, and a romantic location for photographs of the wedding party.
A Sonoma County Historical Landmark, the church is located a few short blocks from the equally historic Kenwood Depot, a picturesque, cut-stone, hip-roofed landmark dating from the days when Kenwood was linked to a working railway connected to ferry travel from San Francisco. Both the Church’s Fellowship Hall and the Depot, with its fully equipped kitchen and all facilities, are available for receptions, wedding breakfasts and rehearsal dinners.
Built in 1888, Kenwood Community Church is a congregation of the United Church of Christ and welcomes weddings of all faiths. Celebrate your marriage in our chapel, where couples have been uniting for decades. Our garden is perfect for receptions of up to 100 guests, and our full kitchen is available for use by the caterer of your choice.
