Nobody plans a wedding in Humboldt County for the same cake, lace and flowers you’ve seen a million times. Up on the North Coast, we like to do things a little differently, building celebrations around our individual styles, rather than trends that come and go. The Wedding Guide offers ideas, inspiration and tips for planning your wedding in a way that suits your style and your story, and that are, well, very Humboldt. Featuring beautiful photography, heartwarming stories, amazing attire, unforgettable venues and unique local services, we’ll help you make your day as special as you are.
