Have your wedding in one of the smallest towns in California. The town of Harmony has a population of 18 people. Nestled in the hills between Cambria and Cayucos, this town has a glass blowing studio, post office, restaurant, wine tasting room, pottery shop, and chapel.
The day we stopped by to take pictures they were blowing glass in the studio. Harmony has always been a place I’ve stopped at before I head up to Cambria or Hearst Castle. We were actually headed to Moonstone Beach in Cambria that day and took a side trip to visit Harmony. I had remembered that I attended a wedding at the chapel many years ago and wanted to see if it was still around.
The century old wedding chapel is a quaint backdrop for a small wedding ceremony. Their website says you can fit 60 people standing in the chapel. The rates are reasonable for the ceremony and that fee includes the use of their music console, a bridal suite to get ready in, lite candles and decorations. I also noticed an outdoor space, under a large tree, that might be perfect for family photos or a cocktail hour. I would ask the coordinator at the chapel if you can use that space.
For the reception, their website says the Harmony Cafe caters weddings and is located right next door. Other options may be to look into having a reception in Cayucos or Cambria. These two towns are also places for your guests to stay.
