Our Story

Where the ceremony takes the center stage

Amethyst Falls Weddings was founded on the premise that weddings are ceremony centric and focused on the joyful connection between the couple. Micro and small weddings and elopements allow couples to savor the experience of their magical nuptials in an environment that fosters peace and relaxation. Over the years we have observed the stress and expense that many couples experience while planning their weddings and we felt it would be helpful to provide a stress free alternative with a focus on sustainability and simplicity. 


By providing a small venue for intimate weddings, our couples can experience a peaceful and romantic setting that allows them to unwind and truly enjoy their wedding. We are committed to being sustainable partners with Mother Earth and we have organic gardens featuring fruit trees, nut trees, herbs, flowers and vegetables.


We use all natural cleaning products in Dreamcatcher Lodge and all natural laundry detergent for folks that might be chemically sensitive. Another facet of our story is that we welcome all souls here and have had the pleasure of working internationally. We welcome LGBTQ couples with open arms and accommodate a variety of faiths because we believe that LOVE is the path. 


You will find signs throughout the property that are touchstones of transformation, like "Follow your Bliss" or "Peace is the Path" and "Love is the Way".  The entire property has been designed to inspire peace and tranquility as well as contemplation and rejuvenation!
