Your ceremony can also take place in the Great Room, which is a warm and inviting space that features a large wood burning fireplace and views of the rolling waves. Please note that the ceremonies we host are standing ceremonies, chairs are not provided (local rentals are available for outdoor weddings, arrangements are the responsibility of the convener). Ceremonies in the Great Room are not private, as the space is always open to guests of the Lodge. We will provide a registry signing table and chair, and witnesses if needed. Our maximum capacity for indoor ceremonies is 50 people. Your number of guests for the ceremony must not exceed the number attending the reception.
ReceptionOur cuisine features simple, natural and unpretentious fare to suit any taste. Our Chef will go out of his way to ensure his creations are memorable and delicious. We can provide a champagne reception with canapés following the ceremony for you and your guests if desired.
Your indoor dinner reception for over 16 people will take place in our private function room. Amenities available feature a surround sound system, dance floor (maximum 40 people), LCD projector and screen for slide shows, and West Coast table décor. We offer plated dinner service, menus start at $55 per person. Dinners for groups over 16 start at 5:30 pm in our private space.
Should your reception involve music and dancing in the function room, we ask that the music is turned down by 11:00 pm and off by 12:00 am for the comfort of our other guests, and that the room is vacated by 12:00 am. If we receive guest complaints due to excessive noise from the wedding party, the convener will be responsible for the room charge of the particular guest.
