You can choose to have your ceremony in the orchard or the meadow, by the pool or in our Lodge. Each has its own unique flavors and character. The boughs of the orchard's fruit trees encircle a ceremony and bring a magical sense of intimacy. The giant redwoods in the meadow overlook the guests and impart a grand sense of the beauty of this natural environment.
