Through history, a wedding is about the union of two living souls through a ceremony witnessed by friends and family. What better way to celebrate the occasion than with a woodland community complete with venue, guest accommodations, and everything you need down to the final detail?
What is a woodland wedding? Think of an ancient forest with towering pines that acts as a canopy over all below. Now, add natural elements like pine cones, ferns, moss to create whimsical enchantment to reflect who you are as a couple. A wedding is meticulously planned and every detail from the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony to the reception is carefully thought out. For the perfect event, everything must be timed, facilitated, and orchestrated to accommodate guests, weather conditions, and catering needs. No need to get hung up on the logistics, we help you plan it all out, no detail is too small.
