Arrive 30 minutes before your set wedding time so you can relax and soak in a little of Butterfly Hollow. The two retreat guestrooms will be available for the bride and groom to change into your wedding attire. We ask that all Your Guests come dressed and ready for the ceremony.
Intimate Wedding Ceremony for the two of you held in the hillside gazebo (weather permitting) or inside the historic farmhouse for a nostalgic setting. Your wedding location will be tastefully decorated with natural touches and fresh flowers of the season. The personal ceremony will be officiated by a licensed wedding officiant. David, who is one of the owners of the retreat, often performs the wedding ceremony and enjoys creating memorable wedding ceremonies that mingle laughter and smiles and your story of love all together. You are also welcome to provide your own officiant.
Keep it a secret or share the moment with up to Four Guests. There is also an option to include up to 4 additional family or friends.
Use of a handmade, vintage paper, and dried flower bouquet. You are also welcome to provide your own flowers and there is an option below if you would like Butterfly Hollow to provide a fresh flower bouquet.

From the moment the wedding ceremony begins, the cherished memories will be captured forever with a romantic photojournalism touch.
