The Yolo County Visitors Bureau has a new section on its website dedicated to wedding venues throughout the county. The listing features 36 sites that brides and grooms can consider using for their big day.
“We have many fabulous locations for weddings and receptions, in our towns and in our beautiful countryside, and we want to provide a place to showcase and market them,” says Alan Humason, executive director of the YCVB.
Visitors to the website will find a directory of all venues, plus categories to search for different types of venues, such as vineyards and wineries, farms and ranches, historic sites, gardens and outdoors, and golf courses. Venues include Historic Oakdale Ranch near Esparto, Heidrick Ag History Center in Woodland, Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg and the Inn at Park Winters near Winters.
There are also several locations shown on the UC Davis campus, and unusual choices such as the Sacramento River Train.
Each location has a separate page with a description of the facilities and services available, contact and website information, and slide shows of scenic photographs. The YCVB will market the new section throughout the Northern California region in an effort to attract even more visitors to Yolo County.
“This is just a start, and we expect to add more locations over time,” says Tiffany Dozier, public relations and communications manager for the YCVB. “We’re also considering adding relevant businesses, like bridal shops and caterers, to make the section a more complete resource.”
The Yolo County Visitors Bureau works to encourage visitation to the communities of Davis, Winters and Woodland and the outlying areas of Yolo County. The YCVB also works closely with UCD as well as other civic and promotional agencies.
Its downtown Davis office and Visitor Center at 132 E St., Suite 200, features a variety of brochures and services. For more information, call 530-297-1900 or visit the website.
