No regrets - best wedding venue ever!

I would 💯 recommend this venue for couples that want a unique and intimate wedding experience in the redwoods. It was the perfect size for our 50 guest wedding, and the cost included overnight stay on the property - which is convenient for the couple and saves money on vendor delivery/pickup. The property layout is intuitive and the surroundings and backdrop provide a great canvas for any variety of decor and design elements. Thie owners, Tania and Taylor, are so personable, friendly, and accommodating. And that’s just the start. They do an excellent job of maintaining the property and will respond promptly to any questions (literally - recology, outlets, sound system, etc.). They are open to feedback and quick to problem solve. There are also on site rentals for all those little time-bound things you may need. love how the property is always evolving, with creative projects to build community and enhance hospitality. It’s such an inspirational space. Almost all of our ideas on how to structure our wedding and what elements to feature were inspired by our first site visit. I could go on and on, but overall we are so glad we had our wedding at Sparrow Valley. Everything from the location to the layout and design and Tania/Taylor is magical :)

Amazing, Breathtaking, Unforgettabls

This venue is absolutely stunning. Tania does so much as the owner. She is constantly improving the property and striving to make it better and better. She is very hands on and helpful in any way she can be. Pictures do not do this place any kind of justice. Not only does it make for breathtaking photos, the reception area is very intimate. This place has it all, lodging, ceremony area, long farm tables for dinner, dance floor and bar area. Although the location is a little bit of a trek, it is so worth it when you reach the end result. The venue needs very little decoration in my opinion because it is so beautiful on its own. Long lasting memories will be made in this magical place. This venue has so much to offer and we are beyond thrilled to have called it our wedding venue. Due yourself a solid and tour this place, I promise you will fall in love.

Amazing Experience

We recently had our wedding at Sparrow Valley Retreat, and it was everything we dreamed of! Tania and Taylor, Jackie (Golden Coast Planning), and Molly( wylder space) were the most amazing team. The space is magical! we fell in love with it when we first toured it a year ago. Will proposed in a fairy ring and Sparrow Valley Retreat felt just like that moment. The accommodations were great for our family, and we were made to feel at home. My husband and I stayed an extra night, and it was the most relaxing experience. We had close to 50 guests, and it was perfect. Being surrounded by nature was refreshing, and it was a beautiful backdrop for our pictures. I am 100% certain Tania somehow manifested clear and sunny skies for our wedding day despite a storm earlier in the week. We are beyond thankful for everything.
