Amazing people and an amazing place
Nothing but pure bliss. The entire process to get married was a breeze. The site is gorgeous, the food amazing (The roast beef is divine!) and the people who run it some of the nicest people I've ever met. They where incredibly flexible and understanding with us, and made sure we felt more like family than anything else. I would never in my life want to get married anywhere else but here. If you want someone to do a good deal of planning so you can relax, I recommend this 100 times over. No place could be better than this location.

The wedding of our dreams!
We had our wedding at White Pines this past September and could not be happier with how everything turned out. Truly, this place is amazing and such a hidden gem. The food and venue are absolutely amazing, and you will not find friendlier or more down-to-earth staff than White Pines. Throughout the entire process, it was so obvious how hard everyone works and how much they care about making you feel special and giving you the wedding of your dreams. The wedding canyon's scenery is breathtaking and so unique for an outdoor wedding. We have received so many compliments from family and friends on White Pines, saying they have never been to a wedding like this and how cool of a place it is.They truly are a one-stop shop for everything you need which took out so much stress and time from our planning. They guide you through everything and are so organized. They have so many options to help customize your day, but also were always willing to let us bring our own ideas and items for decorations. They are truly committed to letting you do what you want and what works best for you. Beth and Kelly are an amazing team - they are so sweet and respectful, I never felt like I was bothering them or nervous to ask questions or bring up ideas, and they were always willing to go the extra mile for us. Looking back on all the vendors I used - that is something that is very hard to find. I can't thank White Pines enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams. We will always continue to come back here and they will be a big part of our life forever!

The perfect experience
White Pines Wedding Canyon is a beautiful venue to get married in. The landscape is breathtaking and the Lodge has amazing food and plenty of room for a perfect reception - both inside and outside. Everything about White Pines is beautiful. Even more importantly, the staff is outstanding. They are so accommodating and hardworking. On our wedding day, even though it rained, they did everything to ensure things went flawlessly. Everyone was just so amazing from start to finish. Planning my wedding was never stressful. I feel like I had a team of people helping me the entire time. I am SO happy I got married here!! It was the perfect place!!
