Wedding

Looking for a fun and unique place to hold your special day?

The Women’s Environmental Institute Farm and Orchard is able to accommodate a large wedding and reception to a small intimate gathering with just your family and close friends.

This year WEI will host a limited number of magnificent weddings at the WEI Eco-Retreat Center, Farm and Orchard.  It is best to book your wedding before the end of January while weekends are still more available for you, your family and friends. After January, options may be more limited but availability remains.

Consider a beautiful spring wedding under apple blossoms, an early summer wedding with the farm fields greening with young seedlings, a summer wedding with flowers, fields deep in vegetation, and soft summer nights or a fall wedding with orchard trees heavy with sweet fruit and the colors of autumn trees lit for glory.  Plan your savory meals with fresh organic produce from the farm.  Bring in your favorite musicians and allow your friends and family to join you in the start of your life as one ~

Everyone is welcome.

Let WEI Farm & Orchard be a part of your lifetime memories –
