    Wonderful Venue and Staff

    On 10.14.18 my husband and I got married here at Pema Osel Ling, and it was an absolute dream! ALL of the staff was extremely helpful, sweet, and a pleasure to work before and during a day that we will hold very close to our hearts. Our coordinator was Eden, who was great with answering all of my questions and helped with making everything a smooth process. The food for the reception and brunch the following morning was delicious and a huge hit. We stuck to a pretty basic menu even though we had the option to get really creative and incorporate lots of food items, and it was still an incredible meal that everyone loved. Our wedding was on the smaller side with roughly 70 guests, and we didn't want it to feel like we had a lot of extra strangers/vendors at our wedding, but that was not the case at all. Every single person from Pema that we came into contact with was incredibly nice and added such a positive touch to our wedding.

    We had our ceremony at the Amphitheatre of the Redwoods, and it was absolutely incredible! The area was able to accommodate all of our guests and more; however, it had a feeling of being very intimate. We were approved to have dried lavender tossed, and the entire amphitheatre smelled of lavender and it was perfect!
    Cocktail hour was outside of Celebration Hall, and the bartenders provided by Pema were great and kept all of our guests happy (with alcohol that we provided!). For dinner we had everyone seated in the lawn area outside of Celebration Hall. The weather wasn't too cold but we had heaters and everyone was comfortable. Dancing and dessert were inside of Celebration Hall and this provided such a great space for guests who didn't want to be outside. We were worried that the space would feel too big and empty for our guest size, but we felt that it was perfect for everyone to be able to enjoy the venue without feeling too cramped or pressured to do a certain activity. At night we made use of the fire pit, which was a perfect way to wind down the night with our friends and family. It was incredible being able to take a moment to look up and see the beautiful night sky while making smores.

    We had a lot of friends and family spend the night at Pema, which was really affordable. All of the housing from the cabins, to the yurt, and the houses were clean, comfortable and provided the perfect space for people to spend the night. Pema is about 20 min from major hotels and the road to get to the venue is very windy (which was the only "negative" thing about Pema) so it really helped having such nice accommodations for people to be able to avoid unnecessary late night driving on the road. For getting ready, I got ready at the Orchard House and my husband got ready at the Sangha House. Both homes provided plenty of light and space to get ready before the ceremony. The check-in and check-out process for guests was also extremely easy and straight forward which was another added bonus!

    Brunch the following morning was really nice and allowed for extra time with everyone before parting ways. I highly recommend everyone consider doing the brunch, especially because the food was delicious! We had this also at the lawn outside of Celebration Hall and we just reused the centerpieces from the night before which was perfect.

    Almost a month later, I don't remember all of the specifics of the day, but I do remember the emotions and feelings from the day. Everything went really smoothly, and everyone was so kind and helpful - and these are the things that stick with you. We only have positive things to say about getting married at Pema Osel Ling and are so grateful to everyone that helped make our wedding day such a lovely day to remember.

    Magical Wedding in the Redwoods

    My husband and I are so happy to have discovered Pema Osel Ling for our wedding weekend. We knew we wanted to be outside in the beautiful Redwoods, have our friends be able to stay on-site, and also have the music go past 9pm (which a lot of venues have a hard shut down at 10pm). Little did we know that we would be getting so much more than just this. Miranda was our on-site wedding coordinator and was beyond awesome. She provided us with a timeline and stepping stones we should hit in the 9 months we had to plan for our big day. I honestly have to say that we were not stressed at all during the planning process. She was always available with any questions and provided us with an amazing list of vendors whom we used about 90% from the list. Our wedding weekend was fantastic! Everything ran so smoothly. The food was stellar and everyone was commenting on how awesome the buffet was and could taste the organic quality in the food. We had a bonfire both Friday and Saturday night and the over-night staff was super chill and nice. Being on the grounds here you could feel the positive and loving energy. We are so glad we listened to our intuition and went with Pema Osel Ling for our wedding weekend. It truly will be a memory we will cherish in our hearts for a lifetime. Thank you!
