Odyssey Yacht Charter – San Pedro, California

Odyssey Yacht Charter

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

If you’re planning a wedding in the Los Angeles area, why not get married on the high seas? Odyssey Yacht offers a USCG-inspected tri-level motor yacht that can carry up to 42 guests.
We can seat 20-25 guests outside on the bow and 10-15 upside on the upper flybridge. There’s comfortable seating and dancing in the main and aft salon.

In the main salon, we have a wet bar and a 52″ television for videos and karaoke. We have an ipod connection where you can play your own music through the speakers on all levels.

Self catering is also allowed – save a lot of money by bringing your own alcohol and food, if you want. DJs can connect their equipment too – we do everything we can to make things easy for you.

We welcome weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and any other type of celebration. We offer both Catalina trips and overnight honeymoon trips.

During the daytime, we can anchor off of beautiful Palos Verdes point, or off Long Beach harbor – swim off of the swim step in the rear of the yacht!

The yacht can sleep 6-8 on overnight trips – travel up and down the coast of Southern California, or south into Mexico.

We’re very liberal and will do what we can to help you have a fantastic time.

We can pick you up in Redondo Beach, Long Beach, San Pedro and Newport Beach. Barbara and her crew are very gay friendly and truly enjoy entertaining on Odyssey and welcome everyone to enjoy themselves. Odyssey’s motto is “If you have a dream, we will fullfil it.”

Black Bear Inn – South Lake Tahoe, California

Black Bear Inn - South Lake Tahoe

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Black Bear Inn is a gay-owned bed and breakfast in South Lake Tahoe, and was voted one of the top 10 B&Bs in California. The owners, Jerry and Kevin, designed and built the lodge and cabins in the late 1990s with an eye toward recreating the old lodges of the West by incorporating rough-hewn beams, wood plank flooring, repurposed barn wood and a mix of antique and new furnishings.
The lodge has just five guest rooms, and three rustic cabins sit on the back grounds. Each lodge room has a private bath, king bed, fireplace, TV/DVD and comes with a full breakfast. The cabins have all the same amenities, plus they include a kitchenette and private outdoor patio.

Enjoy your romantic Lake Tahoe honeymoon getaway in this unique luxury lodge. Spend your days hiking, biking, and enjoying all of the lake activities that Tahoe has to offer, and then come back to the inn to relax and recharge.

Jerry and Kevin also perform small weddings at Black Bear Inn. Due to the intimate size of the property, wedding ceremonies max out at about 30 people when indoors and 50 people when outdoors in the summer months. Please contact the inn for more info on Lake Tahoe weddings marriages as well as using Black Bear Inn as your Lake Tahoe wedding venue.

Saratoga Country Club – Gay Friendly Wedding Venue in Saratoga, California

Saratoga Country Club

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

The Saratoga Country Club sits in the wooded hills above the Santa Clara Valley, with everything you’ll need for a beautiful wedding day: amazing surroundings, a romantic wedding location, an elegant but casual Clubhouse, and great food.

Our wedding site, on top of a gentle hill, is one reason many couples choose the club – you’ll be surrounded by panoramic hillside views, and there’s a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, 15-foot-high white wrought-iron domed gazebo, surrounded by cobblestones. The gazebo is also surrounded by a large lawn and enclosed inside a decorative fence – a private retreat where the two of you can exchange your vows.

After your wedding ceremony, take the short walk to the Clubhouse reception area via a spectacular lighted staircase with white railings.

Our contemporary clubhouse is a two-story structure, painted in soft earth tones that harmonize with the surrounding hills. There’s a large portico and pergola-shaded walkway that add a little drama to the building’s entrance, and the exquisite cherrywood and cut-glass double doors will remind you of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work.

In the Main Dining Room, the cream-colored walls capture the sunlight, thanks to the large windows that are interspersed with stately columns. French doors lead to wide decks that overlook the greens of the golf course below and the Santa Clara Valley off in the distance. There’s even a dance floor and stage area. Dress the room up or down to your own taste.

Our lawn area can hold wedding parties of up to 250 people, and our event/reception area can also hold 250.

The Saratoga Country Club is a gay-friendly wedding venue. Event Manager Linda Thibeault looks forward to working with you to create a magical wedding day for you and your partner.
