Within an hour's drive from the Golden Gate Bridge in Northern California, there is a small church on a hill near the ocean. Located in the quaint town of Bodega, less than 5 miles from the beautiful blue waters of Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean, St. Teresa of Avila church epitomizes the beauty of a bygone era. Originally built in 1862 and now a California Historical Landmark, the church was also featured in Alfred Hitchcock's well known movie "The Birds."

Our doors are open not only to Catholic weddings but we welcome inquiries from those of other faiths. Find out how you may be able to have your wedding in our beautiful church.
