We think brides have a right to a wedding setting they will remember all of their lives. Our site offers several potential places for your wedding ceremony. Choose some or all our services; you will find they are competitively priced.

  •  A large 40 x 60-foot celebration tent with removable sides which can be a setting for your ceremony and/or reception for a group of 200 guests. The tent also has a large dance floor area.
  •  A relaxed, informal living room holding up to 40 people.
  •  A lawn surrounded by flowering shrubs and gardens handling a group of up to 75 people.
  •  Attractive decks with the valley and gardens as a back drop for a variety of sized groups.

  •  A stately cedar grove by the river that holds well a group of 100 people.

Services at Sahale Learning Center range from simply renting the facility to a comprehensive wedding package. Ordained clergy are available to help design and perform your wedding ceremony as well as provide prenuptial education.

Our site affords ample parking, rest rooms, and areas for dressing. There are also several areas for holding a reception: the living room and tent (on reverse) as well as a complete kitchen and dining room that opens out onto a patio and decks.

You may choose to have your rehearsal dinner at Sahale Learning Center and we have affordable overnight accommodations for up to 30 guests.
