Although is may sound like a awful or drab place to hold a wedding ceremony, it is actually quite beautiful. As you walk in the doors, you are greeted outside by a giant statue of an Elk. Don't let this turn you away. Once you get inside, there is an enormous amount of room for tables, dancing, dj and food. They offer a very affordable price and even cheaper if you are an Elk member. They offer a list of available caterers, or you can choose your own and pay a little extra to rent the kitchen. They have a full bar with a bartender on staff that will make drinks for your guests. They have their own indoor tables and chairs and rent linens at an additional price if you choose. The absolute best part about the Elks Lodge is their backyard area, where you can hold your ceremony. They have a beautiful green grass field that looks out to the amazing Sacramento River right in Redding. It's a wonderful place for pictures and if you take a short walk, you can take pictures on the famous and stunning Diesel Horse Bridge. The staff at the Elks Lodge are all very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend them because it is a truly beautiful venue and extremely affordable in price. This is especially important if your wedding is on a tight budget. Go, visit them today!
