Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Exchange vows in a natural woodland "cathedral". Lovingly named "Universal Evergreen Chapel of Earth", it’s surrounded by towering pines and features a beautiful handmade branch arbor.
  • Your cocktails are served from a charming tipi situated right next to your ceremony space in the wooded glen. Then, move to the spacious reception tent to dine and dance the night away.
  • You’ll fall in love with their adorable "tiny home"-inspired cabins, which feature unique vintage furnishings, relaxing front porches, and whimsical names like "Sugar Magnolia", "Walden", and "Funkomatic 513".
