    Beautiful venue, great staff! Highly recommend

    My wife and I were married here on 5/18/19. Our experience working with Sequoia Retreat Center was top notch. The venue is beautiful, our onsite guests enjoyed staying in the cabins, and their on-site food catering is stellar. Sequoia catered the food for our reception, as well as our hors d'oeuvres and pre-ceremony nosh. Everything was delicious -- we highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli and salmon! If you’re considering this place, take a tour! The Redwood Amphitheater, and the sense of quiet and seclusion of this venue, is really magical.

    We also contracted a coordinator (LJ) who routinely works this venue and was incredible helpful. We had an unseasonable storm come during our wedding, and LJ helped to orchestrate countless last minute changes to accommodate the weather (such as booking a large tent for our reception) and kept the Sequoia staff aligned around the same [changing] plan. Coordinating a full weekend event at such a large venue initially seemed intimidating, but with Sequoia’s great staff + LJ, everything went smoothly.

    We booked all of Sequoia for the full weekend. If you do this, you also get access to a house on-site, which was great for my wife and bridesmaids to get ready on our wedding day. I highly recommend this -- the house is beautiful, spacious, and is a very comfortable place to get ready. Since it rained on our wedding day, we actually took many of the pictures of the bridal party there, since it’s so spacious and the lighting is so good.

    We had a large Friday welcome event (about 100 people), which was stunning. We did it in Alba Grove, amongst the Redwoods. Many of our guests had travelled from the east coast and upon arriving, felt really transported to true Northern California.

    The Sequoia team was responsive, friendly, and we enjoyed working with them through our planning process and during the wedding itself.

    BYOB policy for beer & wine was also a major money-saver, compared to doing a catered bar.

    I got married here over July 4th weekend this year. It is a perfect place if you want to have a fun-filled, beautiful, unique wedding. It will be difficult to put into words how spectacular and amazing both the venue and the staff/service but I will attempt to do so. I worked primarily with Diane, but also with her husband, Scott, and their onsite wedding coordinator (LJ). They were always gracious and responsive and answered all of my (quite obsessive) emails and questions (I also visited the site 5 times!!) They create drawings/google docs for you to work with which are incredibly helpful and allow everyone to be on the same page. The site is spectacular. Catering: SRC catered our wedding dinner as well as two brunches and lunch. We had rave reviews about the quality of the food--it was super fresh, interesting, and hearty. They will really cater to your likes (I am a vegetarian who hates mushrooms, my husband is a major meat eater...they made it work). The service was also great, and there were no mix-ups or hold ups. The cabins on site are great all of our friends loved the cabins and staying together. We have some friends I was worried would think it was "too rustic" but the cabins are beautiful, spacious and very clean. SRC really allowed us to have a wedding we wanted. They execute what you want impeccably. There's not a sense of them rushing you through anything or it being a money-making only operation, and that is invaluable on the what everyone wants to be the best weekend of their lives. I am picky/detail-obsessed person (lawyer) and we planned our wedding primarily from the east coast and SRC gave us truly the best weekend of our entire lives, and one we will never, ever forget.

    We had our wedding at the Sequoia Retreat center and we couldn't have been happier with them! They were extremely accommodating and wonderful to work with. They did a dessert bar for the rehearsal dinner that was delicious and we loved the bonfire. The whole weekend stay was wonderful and the day of the wedding went incredibly well. The whole experience was more than words and we absolutely loved working with the retreat center.
