Shasta Weddings is a Fairy-tale Class Wedding Venue

... and the added human garnishments;
deep blue green grass, colorful flower beds, campfires and storybook cottages.

The air is pure from the towering pine and fir, the artesian spring water is delicious,
the weather is summer cool and the back-droop is spectacular garnet mountains.

It is paradise!
There are no (well ... few) nuisances bugs, sirens, autos, overhead cables and lines.

The atmosphere is relaxed.

Cabins - link

The cabins are homey family style cottages that are used primarily for sleeping since the good weather and activities are so close.

Lodging typically includes all
non-reception meals too!

The bride and groom usually assign a sleeping location for you so you will not have to make reservations yourself.

If you prefer traffic, shopping, and tourists
off-site lodging is plentiful.

Cabin guests typically enjoy the entire weekend but a "no show" policy provides some cost protection to the booking couple.




The typically perfect temperatures make camping an enjoyable option. And since meals are usually included you need no pots and pans.
Smoking is restricted to a safe camp area.




For full weekend weddings on-site lodging includes all meals except the Reception dinner which is provided by the bride and groom.

The food served is fresh and generously proportioned.
Options for gluten free, vegetarian and vegan diets are available too.
