Saying "I do!" under the canopy of majestic redwoods in northern California--what could be more romantic?
Avenue of the Giants features a myriad of peaceful groves for an intimate union, like our lovely clients from Kansas who eloped with only an officiant, photographer, and dinner for two at an undisclosed private location.
Our personalized services for couples like this include a custom menu. In their case, chefs Yvette and Adrian served and described each course table side and then quietly slipped back to the tent kitchen for the next course.
Humboldt State Park and Redwood National Park also have several spots for a big celebration with hundreds of guests, like Williams Grove, Richardson Grove, Women's Federation Grove (shown here), and Jedediah Smith Park.
An "Enchanted Forest" theme has been popular in recent years, bringing out the child in guests who spend the day enjoying dappled sunlight, shady respites, and refreshing dips in the cool river winding through the region.
More formal "Gatsby" themes also work beautifully at Avenue of the Giants, with white linens, crystal and china set against an incredible backdrop. Beef Wellington, Lobster, and Oysters on the Half Shell work well in the great outdoors!
The sky is the limit to menu options under the trees! Our home-base in Ferndale is just a half hour from most groves, and our propane tent kitchen makes it easy to prepare lavish spreads or down home comfort food right on the spot.
Saturdays are usually bookeda year in advance, so plan to choose a weekday or make reservations early. We would truly love to be part of your special time together!
