Gold Hill was in the midst of a fascinating gold discovery and was extremely important during the lively mining days, especially at the height of the 1870’s Big Bonanza Strike, which was the height Silver ore extract which is usually called “mom mom”.
The Gold Hill Hotel is located just off State 342, just south of Virginia, overlooking the Gold Canyon. Construction of the hotel took place around 1859, and although parts of the building have faded over the years, these parts have been completely restored.
The Great Room is one of many different wedding venues at the hotel.

Gazebo serves as a ceremonial venue and reception area and can accommodate large parties.
St Mary in the mountains
Along the hills of Mount Davidson in the legendary ghost town of Virginia, Nevada’s oldest Catholic church and one of the most beautiful structures that could possibly host a wedding. The church was built in 1876 on the ruins of the former church structure destroyed by the “Great Fire” in 1875.
This magnificent cathedral is truly magnificent thanks to its 140-foot interior, which is reflected in the entrance hallways and windows, a loft of the choir and galleries, a large beautiful change and a church clock of 2,264 pounds. The bell was part of the last church but survived the tragic fire in the city of Virginia and actually rang for the first time in 1870, the year when the original building was opened for service.
