A full weekend wedding or commitment celebration allows you to spend relaxing quality time with your loved ones. Take the time to catch up with friends and family from far away, swap stories around the campfire, and create magical memories on nearby forest trails leading to mountain vistas and picturesque waterfalls. We offer an affordable wedding package that includes rehearsal, ceremony, reception, meals, and lodging -- all in one breathtaking location.

Your wedding makes a difference! NatureBridge provides hands-on environmental science programs to more than 700 schools and 30,000 students each year. When you choose our location for your event, you are supporting our mission and our dedication to providing programs to youth from all communities.

Wedding dining set up

We recognize that great food can add a special touch to your wedding day, so our chefs prepare delicious meals to satisfy your guests.

Rehearsal dinner: Your entrée options include teriyaki chicken with stir fry veggies, customizable burrito bar, homemade pizza with salad bar, penne pasta with marinara sauce and baked chicken with mashed potatoes. Entrees are accompanied by a side dish, vegetable and dessert.

Saturday breakfast & lunch: Start your morning off right with a hearty meal of pancakes and sausage or French toast and sausage. Additionally, there is always cold cereal and fruit to choose from, as well as coffee, tea, milk and juice. A make-it-yourself sack lunch spread is set out with breakfast.

Wedding dinner: Our wedding meal is based around wild Pacific salmon, served with roasted red pepper cream sauce or marionberry reduction sauce. It is served with almond rice pilaf, and broccoli with Asiago cheese cream sauce. We can also provide a completely vegetarian or vegan menu, if you prefer. The wedding party is responsible for the wedding cake.

Sunday breakfast: Our delicious fresh basil scrambled eggs with buttermilk biscuits, sausage and fruit are a great way to finish your momentous weekend celebration.

The Certificate should also state that "The insurance afforded herein to the named additional insured(s) shall be primary and noncontributory with all other insurance carried by the named additional insured(s)." You may purchase this insurance through The EventHelper Online or a third party vendor of your own choosing.
