Located in the historic gold country of El Dorado County, California, surrounded by wineries and ranches, apple farms, historic towns, rivers, snow resorts, Sierra meadows and lakes, we are conveniently close to Lake Tahoe, and the greater Sacramento area, both about one hour’s drive time.

We provide a concierge service to help you find lodging, meals, and activities that you need and want in our area, as we are a local insider.  We source other businesses and people that hold sustainable ethics, so that your dollar goes further in promoting your values. This is provided as an included service to our clients.

We offer wedding flower packages and DIY classes for sustainable, small and intimate weddings.

We proudly support marriage for ALL and we welcome LGBTQ weddings.

We believe in the relationship between humans and nature, and the inter-relationships of all living things on Earth as equal. We tread lightly, enjoy our time outdoors, and we are inspired by nature, whether your ceremony is indoors or outdoors, at the river, or under a bright blue sky in the city.

We don’t believe you need to spend $28,000 or even $3,000 to have a romantic and memorable wedding.
