WildSpring is a lovely place for small weddings and commitment ceremonies.
If you're planning a more simple event and would like a peaceful, naturally beautiful environment, WildSpring is for you. The trees will feel like witnesses, the ocean seems to bless the union, and families and friends have room to spend time with each other and celebrate your new life path.
Weddings can be scheduled for guests staying at WildSpring from October through mid-May, outside of holiday weekends.
We can help you arrange for everything you need, including catering for a reception/dinner, flowers, photographer, decorations, cake and officiant. We have no packages, you only pay for what you want.
(It's important for you to know, however that if you're looking for a more formal, traditional ceremony and reception/ dinner, you would not be satisfied with WildSpring's capabilities. We're very small, and in a town of 1200 people, which limits what we can create for you.)
We can accommodate 16 people among five cabins.

Weddings are for WildSpring guests, and there are two charges for weddings: Lodging Charges and Service Charges.
Lodging Charges will be determined based on your party - how many and how long you're staying. In order to handle both the ceremony and reception/dinner, weddings require booking the entire property for a two-day stay.
We can discuss exceptions to very small ceremonies only (please see below for additional considerations). Click Group Rates for lodging charges.
Service Charges vary according to your plans and they include use of our facilities, working with you to plan, manage and clean up your events:
If you have a reception/dinner here, the wedding service charge is $1200. This includes helping develop and facilitate your event, including gathering information, discussing options, planning and making arrangements with you prior to the wedding, working with caterer, florist, photographer, music and officiant as necessary, and to handle set up and cleanup. The Guest Hall's existing furniture will be used. Decorating is not included, and would depend on what you would like.
We can serve up to 16 people for dinner/reception. There will be a $20 surcharge for anyone coming here who is not staying at WildSpring.
If you have just a ceremony and no reception dinner, the wedding service charge is $500. This includes helping develop and facilitate your ceremony, including discussing options, planning and making arrangements with you prior to the wedding, working with florist, photographer, music and officiant as necessary, and to handle setting up and breaking down the chairs and cleanup. Decorating is not included, and would depend on what you would like.
We can have up to 16 people for the ceremony. There will be a $5 surcharge for anyone coming here who is not staying at WildSpring.
Plus, like all small groups, there will be a service charge on the other days of your stay, depending on use of our facilities and how much assistance you need to plan, develop, set up and clean up for group use of the faciities, such as group meals and gatherings. This will be a minimum of $100/day, up to $500/day...though normally there is no charge for the last day since we take care of breakfast for your group.
If you do not take the entire property, we will have to discuss the impact of your plans on other guests - you will have to share the common facilities with everyone here and work around our normal daily schedule. There will still be a service rcharge to cover any planning, development and management of your event, minimum $175. This must be for a very small ceremony, with only a few people, and no reception/dinner. There will also be a $5 surcharge for anyone coming here who is not staying at WildSpring.
