The National Exchange Hotel for Weddings

My fiancé and I decided to rent out the entire National Exchange Hotel (including bar and restaurant) for our wedding night. We also had our guests stay in all 38 rooms. It was a dream come true. Sonya and her team went above and beyond in every aspect from planning, prepping, and day of coordinating to meet and exceed our needs. Our guests are still raving about the location, food, decor, and overall atmosphere.

Favorite hotel is now that much more special.

The National Exchange Hotel has been our favorite hotel for over a decade. It was definitely a part of our love story so we knew we wanted to stay there for our wedding weekend in the beautiful Nevada City. Everything was amazing. We hosted our rehearsal dinner there which was incredibly beautiful and delicious! They were so attentive and intentional with the details, they even catered to our guests with dietary restrictions. The girls and I got our make up done in the suite, had our photographer meet us there. The photos came out stunning. Being in walking distance to the Miners Foundry(our venue) was so helpful. Yes you may have seen a bridesmaid run down the street when I forgot my veil at the National. Spending our first night there as husband and wife was so lovely. Waking up and going to our favorite balcony and seeing our favorite street in a new and different light in a magical moment I will cherish forever. Our wedding was a dream thanks to the National. All my friends and family who stayed there have since gushed about it and the rehearsal dinner meal. I could continue with accolades for The National until tomorrow but this is getting quite long!

Best day of our lives!!

We had our wedding at the National Exchange Hotel in October of 2022 and it was truly the most special day we could have ever dreamed. The entire staff was incredibly helpful and professional. Kate and Angie helped us with planning and making sure everything was to how we wanted it. I felt so calm the day of the wedding having their support and help. We didn’t have to add too many decorations because the hotel itself offers so much charm it speaks for itself. The town of Nevada City is so special, all our guests kept saying how they will be visiting the town now that they know what a gem it is. I can’t say enough amazing things about everyone at the National and how thankful we are to them for making our wedding the best day of our lives!!! We will be back every year for our anniversary!
