You have your spot for 22 1/2 hours!

A very unique thing about us is how long you have your wedding site. Most wedding ceremony and reception facilities only rent for a few hours at a time, but not here. We understand that this day is one of the most important and meaningful days of your life, so here we make sure it's your wedding day and not your wedding moment. How? Here's the great part - when you reserve an area for your wedding, it's yours for the entire day from 11 AM till 9:30 AM the following day! And you can stay in the group camp ground till 11 AM!! You can truly relax, soak in and enjoy your wedding day and not be rushed in and out! We can do this not only because you have a full day but also because we have a camping option available for you! Each area has it's own group camp site that can hold at least 80 people and cost only $225. Because we are secluded in a beautiful canyon, even though you're just 20 miles west of Portland Oregon, you'll feel like you're in an enchanted world all of your own!

Family operated with family values!

We offer all of this because it is our policy to give you the best deal possible. We are a family operation first and we feel that as a bride and groom that are just starting out in life together you needn't be burdened with enormous wedding bills. And since we have done many weddings, we can be a very useful resource to help with your wedding planning. We don't offer catering, so who you have as your caterer is up to you or you and your family can do it yourselves! If you are looking for a caterer we do have a very good list shown on this page to choose from if you wish, again, catering is all up to you!. Alcohol is allowed, though you must provide insurance for that. You can get this through home owners insurance, through Gales Creek Insurance in Portland www.galescreek.com or through www.wedsafe.com. We do offer (but don't require you to use) an on site minister and wedding planner at very reasonable prices if you need one!

Besides offering you a very unique setting, we also pride ourselves on having all the basics ready for you to make your day stress free and as wonderful as possible! For those who worry about going into the night as mentioned we also offer you camping for you and your guests. So with us, you, your family and friends can relax and spend your entire wedding day creating memories, decorating and personalizing the area to your liking and taste and make the area unique to you. Enjoy romantic walks on our forest trails, take the kids on paddle boat rides, all the while soaking in the beauty of our forested canyon paradise! Truly a wedding day to warm your hearts forever!
