The Wedding In The Woods

A Whimsical Forest Wedding Ceremony Location that You’ll Want to Get Lost In. 

Situated on the northwest side of The Gardens of Castle Rock in the dense foliage of the forest, The Wedding in The Woods provides a natural and intimate setting for couples looking for a secluded ceremony spot where time stands still.

At the entrance of the Wedding in The Woods sits two symmetrical heirloom white pine trees which lead to a thick grassy aisle ending at a magical boho wedding arch creating an enchanted forest feel.

Prior to a wedding venue, The Gardens of Castle Rock was a nursery. Glenn Switzer, The Gardens owner & designer, is the third generation to operate the property. When the nursery began in 1926, Glenn’s grandfather, William Switzer, primarily grew and sold tree stock that were used for shelter belts. Shelter belts are lines of trees surrounding farmsteads that protect the farm from the strong winds that blow across the open fields. The area that is now The Wedding in The Woods, was once the growing area for the tree stock. In fact, you can still find plenty of remnants of these trees throughout the ceremony site…..some are almost 100 years old.

Surrounded by lush foliage, including some trees that are over 80 years old, The Wedding in The Woods is the choice outdoor wedding location.
