Wedding celebration at the AsistenciaWeddings

The Asistencia, an outpost of Mission San Gabriel

The Mission San Gabriel's Rancho San Bernardino Asistencia has been hosting weddings since its restoration was completed in 1937. Up to 100 of your guests can attend your wedding in the mission chapel. The gatehouse is reserved for the convenience of the bride and her attendants.

If you prefer, a beautiful courtyard wedding can accommodate more than 300 of your guests. The gated courtyard is accented by a century-old olive tree, pomegranate trees, and blooming desert plants. Your ceremony comes alive under a white arch trellis decorated with green ivy.

The Asistencia also welcomes outdoor receptions. The Asistencia has a resident minister who, if you wish, will meet with you to create your special ceremony.
