Pine Peaks Event Center was the perfect venue for our wedding in July 2021. It was perfect because the ceremony and reception was all in one place. Parking is not an issue and the options for out-of-town campers was a plus. The corn field and mature trees give our photographer plenty of photo options. They also had a retreat house on site that was amazing to use for the day of our wedding. The reception area was beautiful and spacious. We were allowed to bring in our own desserts and appetizers. We kept the desserts and appetizers fresh in the recently upgraded restaurant/catering room. The bar and social area led to an outside patio, next to the pond. The decorative lights made a perfect setting for evening photos.
Pine Peaks provides an enormous amount of decorations to choose from. Decorations such as, but not limited to candles, different kinds of table liners to choose from, different styles of vases, platters for desserts, to gift boxes for cards. We did bring in a few personalized decorations otherwise they had it all there. They will have everything you need for your wedding.
Our ceremony was outdoors, and the landscaping was manicured to a level of a master’s garden. It was well maintained, excellent for taking pictures. Also, they were up to date with their technology. We didn’t have to hire anyone to help coordinate the music and microphones for our ceremony. Corey helped set all that up.
Priscilla and Corey were so helpful and easily accessible. They responded quickly with questions or concerns we had. They were there the day of the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly, and it did. Priscilla did us the honor of officiating our wedding.
We highly recommend Pine Peaks Event Center. It’s a magnificent place that will provide a beautiful and memorable wedding. It was the perfect place for our wedding.

The team at Pine Peaks gave us the PERFECT wedding - hold on, I know everyone says that but don't keep scrolling you need to understand the lengths Priscilla, Corey, and the entire Pine Peaks team will go to give you the perfect wedding, these people LOVE love and they genuinely care about your big day. After a morning full of thunderstorms we had a 3 hour window with 50% chance of rain and asked them to set chairs up outside just in case we could have the ceremony in the spot we always wanted, with only an hour and a half before go time they sent up over 100 chairs not even knowing for sure that we could get married outside (we did, it was BEAUTIFUL). We worked with a new caterer and with the last minute indoor seating change they were short staffed and Pricsilla and Corey were out bussing tables which is not their job. They hung the edison bulbs we planned to put outside in the event center the morning of the wedding to help make it feel more like the pavilion we wanted. When we were ready to start dancing lightning struck and fried the sound system, they had a back up set up in less than 30 minutes and we were able to dance the night away until midnight. The staff left at midnight and were back cleaning up by 6 AM so all of our stuff was separated and ready for us to pack up by 10 am. None of these things were promised in a contract but the new owners (who are all I can speak to) care more about your special day than any other venue possibly could. It's worth every penny, 10/10 these people are incredible, book your wedding here.
