Envision your big day at one of the most beautiful museums in California. Nestled among flowering pear trees and extensive gardens, just a block away from Lake Merritt outside downtown Oakland, the Oakland Museum of California is the perfect setting for your wedding.
The Downtown Club seats up to 200 guests for served or buffet style wedding receptions with a DJ and Dance Floor. On-site ceremonies may be had for weddings under 100 guests, with a reception to follow on the main floor.
Couples need to contact the parish office six months before the planned wedding. After couples schedule their wedding date, they need to meet with the wedding coordinator for initial paperwork and to receive a booklet that assists them in choosing readings and planning the ceremony.
For outdoor events, our picnic grounds boast 2.5 acres of grass with plenty of lush shade trees. A large covered gazebo, separate serving booth, refreshments & bar areas and indoor restroom facilities highlight this one-of-a-kind outdoor retreat.
