Wedding celebration at the AsistenciaWeddings

The museum offers several locations for your specific event:

The Asistencia

Gather in celebration at one of San Bernardino County’s most enchanting historic sites. Uniquely suited to weddings, this California Historic Landmark location will bring history and romance to any celebration or event.

The graceful chapel will hold up to 100 of your guests, or if you need more space, the beautiful courtyard can accommodate more than 300. 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.
