Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This lush private forest is tucked in a magical spot in the Pacific Northwest rainforest. Every inch of the 5-acre property is breathtaking, from the Asian and English-influenced gardens to the untamed natural beauty of the surrounding evergreens.
  • Exchange vows in picture-perfect seclusion. In the forest, old-growth trees open onto a quiet clearing, where rustic benches sit among hundreds of ferns and moss-draped maples. Before the ceremony, the couple each has a charming, private dressing room to prepare for their special day!
  • Celebrate under the stars. The reception area in the garden boasts a large 40x60 white event tent with three crystal chandeliers, leg drapes, and a dance floor. As the party winds down, you can gather with guests around the cozy fire pit.
