Lick Observatory offers spectacular views above the city of San Jose, with a romantic venue that can accomodate up to 150 guests for a wedding that is truly out-of-this-world.

Our packages include indoor or outdoor ceremony location, use of the 36" Refractor dome for photoshoots, use of the outside areas around the main-building for stunning views above the city, private telescope viewings after dark.

Weddings are available year-round from Monday - Wednesday, noon to midnight, and Thursday through Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to midnight. Dates may be limited on Friday and Saturday evenings from June through August due to our Summer Series.
