Sparrow Valley Retreat - November 14, 2020 Wedding
When our original plans got cancelled due to Covid, I found this venue on Instagram and messaged the owner, Tania. She responded promptly and helped us pull our wedding together in about a month and a half. She went above and beyond to make us feel at ease and was available to answer all my questions. On the day of, she acted as the coordinator and handled everything from decor, contacting vendors to make sure they would arrive on time, and anything we needed! Her partner Taylor even built a shelter because in case it rained on our wedding day! Tania and Taylor are such kind people that have created a beautiful place that is welcoming, warm, and the perfect location to exchange vows. We can't wait to visit Sparrow Valley Retreat for our anniversary in the future. Oh and did I mention they are dog friendly?!Sent on 01/27/2021

It was such a sweet moment the day after when we exchanged our appreciation for each other (there may be were a tear or two). Your wedding will always hold a special place in my heart. Please come back to spend your Anniversary or a fun get away to bask in the Redwood Cathedral remembering your wedding day. Congratulations Again!!!

Amazing location, amazing hosts, amazing vibe
When I first found Sparrow Valley Retreat I was so excited. I love the open, airy feel it had to it. There's so much natural light and huge windows. I loved the style and aesthetic. Everything fit just right. They went above and beyond, and made so many things happen for our wedding day. The huge redwood slab table was gorgeous! It wasn't your typical wedding venue and I loved it so much.Sent on 03/09/2021
