It’s finally the end of the most wonderful,

probably the most hectic,

night of a couple’s life.

Why not go out in style for their Grand Exit?

Much like celebrities, the Bride and Groom are never without their dutiful

paparazzi (aka the photographers),

who are shuffling them from one picture pose to the next.

Everything is very controlled, not often candid, and even all the fun bits are

closely monitored and documented.

Finally, the Grand Exit arrives and the Bride and Groom can

see the light at the end of the tunnel,

sometimes literally.

We’ve seen guests make tunnels out of their arms, glow sticks,

and even streamers for the lucky couple to run through!



Other times, the Grand Exit is seen as the last chance

to make a statement and some couples take flight in a get-away mobile!

We’ve had everything from motorcycles to a Jurassic Park Jeep

fully equipped with an animatronic dinosaur escort our couples off-site. 



Seeing as we’re at a historic site in the middle of the Mt. Woodson country-side,

we do have a few things we ask that you DO NOT include in your great escape:


  • Please, no sparkler/firesticks/fire-works or any form of portable pyrotechnics. The castle and the critters around us appreciate our trees, so we try to keep them far from anything that would reduce them to cinders.
  • Please, no rice or small candies that the wild-life could ingest. (We’ve noticed that sick/dead animals tend to put a damper on wedding celebrations.)
  • Please, no glitter/confetti or feathers. If anyone has had a craft explosion in their home, they know glitter can especially be the stuff of nightmares. The extra effort by our staff to collect all your sparkles from our natural rock crevices will come out of your deposit, just be warned.


Things we DO encourage are: Glow Sticks, Natural Rose Petals,

Bubbles, Streamers/Streamer Sticks, Candles,

Balloons with Lights inside, Eco-Friendly Confetti, Ribbon Wands,

and the list goes on!
