Offering luxury accommodation and mouthwatering cuisine,
your Dream Elopement Package at Nicholson House is
all luxury with a touch of local charm, and includes the following:

♥     Custom vow creation, officiation, and coordination by Vanna Freeberg of Elope Mendocino. Wedding Vows will take place in the back terraced garden area at Nicholson House where you will enjoy exquisite views of the Pacific in complete privacy.

(Booking the Premiere King Spa View Suite is required in order to host your ceremony in the Nicholson House garden. Booking the entire property is recommended for all ceremonies held on-site, though only required for groups exceeding eight.)

♥     Custom-designed bridal bouquet and boutonniere by a choice local floral designer – most flowers are locally grown and garden gathered just for you

♥    A true boutique wedding cake, a signature of all my experienced pâtissiers.  Your two-tier cake will serve up to twenty (20) guests

♥     A full two-hour professional photography shoot of your ceremony by one of Elope Mendocino’s experienced local photographers. Following your vows and photos of family and friends, the couple will have the option of an adventurous photo shoot for the remainder of your time on the Mendocino Headlands (less than a 5-minute drive away). Ask about additional time behind the camera

♥     Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles — a bottle of local Anderson Valley sparkling Brut gifted to you at the time we meet for your Vows

♥     A forever memorable wedding dinner in the exclusive Atrium Dining Room* at Café Beaujolais. With access to the full menu, guests may order as they please. Café Beaujolais is a renowned local gem, serving French Californian fine dining fare in a charming and warm Victorian era home located in the heart of Mendocino Village. The Atrium overlooks the garden with windows throughout and beautiful, natural light.    *Atrium Dining Room seats up to 20 guests, but is most comfortable with maximum of 16

♥    Your Package with Vanna includes a $200 dining credit for the bride and groom, which will be applied to the evening’s final dinner bill the night of your celebration. Please note, one final bill for all guests will be presented and must be paid with a maximum of five (5) cards

♥    Format and pricing options are available for booking the entire Atrium exclusively for your celebration
