Marriage Ceremonies & Wedding Planning
Memorable celebrations start at the Event Center at the Big Tree Inn. Originally opened in 1886, the Big Tree Inn reflects much of the elegant, ornate detailing of the period. The Event Center, while a new addition to the building, maintains the charm and intimate feeling of the main building while providing seating for up to 175 of your closest family and friends. Our beautiful garden provides the perfect place for an outdoor wedding ceremony of seventy five guests or less. The photo opportunities are endless with the gardens, grand staircase and front parlor. Afterwards, your guests are invited inside for dinner and dancing. Bridal couples celebrating their wedding reception at the Event Center are invited to spend the first night of their honeymoon in a complimentary luxury suite at the Big Tree Inn.
