Forest weddings most popular

More than half (54 percent) of the wedding couples in 2012 chose Twenty Mile House’s forest venue to stage their wedding ceremony.

The 200-acre eco-estate gives brides and grooms plenty of choice when it comes to where they wish to say their “I do’s.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Some 32 percent of couples chose a location in the two acres of picturesque gardens that encircle the 1854 Main House, a former stagecoach stop.

 

There were gorgeous lawn ceremonies that faced three different directions on the property, using the charming wooden arch that matches the fretwork of the historic house.


 

 

 

 

 

 

However, the most popular ceremony site, the forest, had wedding guests crossing a footbridge across a creek, down a short forest path and into a clearing surrounded by pine trees. Most chose to have their guests face towards the creek, staging the processional generally from Trackside Cabin.

  But others had their processional follow the forest path, with guests facing towards the river and train tracks. Either direction, it’s a magical spot!

 

 


 

 

 

 

 


Four bridal couples this year (14 percent) held their ceremonies at the private access riverside venue, on the banks of the Middle Fork Feather River a short stroll away. Although a bit sunnier, and sandy, the river venue with its breathtaking views and flowing water is really hard to beat!
