Your Dream Elopement Package at Nicholson House is
all luxury with a touch of local charm,
and includes the following:

♥     Custom vow creation, officiation, venue selection and organization, with personal planning and consultation by Vanna Freeberg of Elope Mendocino. If you choose to marry on the back deck or terraced garden area at Nicholson House, you will not only enjoy complete privacy and lush surroundings, but also an exquisite, unbroken view of the Pacific Ocean. You may also opt to marry cliffside on the headlands — it’s your day and your choice 

(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 cake will serve up to twelve (12) guests

♥     A full one-hour photo shoot of your ceremony by one of Elope Mendocino’s experienced local photographers. 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 for the two of you at Café Beaujolais, 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

Note: Should you choose to dine as a group, you may have up to a total of eight guests at your wedding dinner table in the main dining room at Café Beaujolais, pending availability. Your complimentary dinner for two will be applied to the final check. No additional fees are required by the restaurant for a main dining room reservation.
