   R Wedding and Events currently has 8 different wedding venues and they keep growing! With so many different sites you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for.

My favorite location of theirs is The Westside Island. A secluded location outside of Kingsburg that is nestled between a private lake and the Kings River.

This stunning location can host up to 400 guests so it is perfect for those who are looking to host a large event. Contact Cindy at R Wedding and Events to get more information.


Hidden Hollow is a stunning all-inclusive venue located near the Reedley Foothills. This venue boasts beautiful backdrops for your ceremony as well as an indoor hall for your reception. My favorite ceremony location is “The Hollow” with the large oak tree and string lights providing a whimsical, romantic setting for your vows. Floral design is included in their wedding packages, the family that runs Hidden Hollow used to own a floral shop in Downtown Fresno.


Wonder Valley Ranch in Sanger is perfect if you are looking for something that includes on-site rooms for your guest but still want to get married outdoors. Wonder Valley has a ton of locations for great portraits, including the dock on their little lake which is a must for sunset portraits.


If you are looking for something a little different look no further than Merryman Station in Exeter. This historic building is over 100 years old and has been updated all while keeping its historic charm. The nearby orange groves make a perfect backdrop for stunning portraits.
