Find LGBTQ-Friendly Wedding Vendors
Envision your big day at one of the top museum wedding venues in the Bay Area—and one of the most unique science, history, and art museums in California. Nestled among flowering pear trees and extensive gardens, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) offers endless possibilities for your dream wedding! This mid-century modernism masterpiece, designed by Pritzker prize-winning architect Kevin Roche, is the perfect setting for couples seeking an historic venue that can host ceremonies, receptions, or elopements in a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces.
Enjoy your wedding dinner al fresco in the gardens, enclosed by broad flights of stairs and trellised walkways, or in the Blue Oak café where floor to ceiling windows overlook the tranquil Koi Pond. Toast your union and vibrant future on terraces surrounded by modern sculpture and stunning views of Lake Merritt. Plus, every couple receives a free Museum membership as our wedding gift to you. Following the big day, you can continue to visit the place where your wedding story began!
The Museum's preferred caterers provide outstanding menus and presentations that range from the traditional to the exotic. Just across the bay from San Francisco, OMCA is situated between downtown Oakland and Lake Merritt. The Museum is equipped to accommodate a wide range of transportation needs with a private parking garage and convenient location one block from the Lake Merritt BART station.
Looking to skip the courthouse in favor of a fun, spontaneous, and no-stress elopement at the Oakland Museum of California? Tie the knot in the Gallery of California Art or on the terraced roof gardens with a toast and 20 or less of your closest family and friends.
