Autumn Vows in a Redwood Cathedral

Take me to church

So much goes into planning a destination wedding in the redwoods. One of the trickier elements is conveying a dress code that suits the mood, the weather and the terrain. From tuxedos to velvet ties, floral prints and faux fur, this guest list brought a singular sense of style to the redwoods. The jewel tone palette was woven into the florals and even popped up in the appetizers – all perfectly on point with the warmth of the late autumn light.

Things to know about planning an Intimate wedding in Pamplin Grove:

While the grove books quickly for multi-day, campground focused events, booking a week day ceremony in late September or early October is definitely an option. Keep in mind that a smaller access window to the grove means limited time for floral and decor install. Also take care to communicate clear directions with your guests prior to departure from your getting ready location as you will (happily) trade cell service for breathtaking surroundings.
