What’s the best way to go green for your wedding? Choose an eco-friendly venue!
Hidden Valley Retreat and Spa in Escondido, California is big on green weddings. Not only does this historic natural estate offer an 11-acre paradise with orchards and gardens that are completely organic, the venue recycles, composts, conserves, re-purposes and avoids hazardous chemicals including cleaning supplies, pesticides and herbicides.
Another eco-friendly feature of this venue is that allows you have both your ceremony and reception in one place, thereby reducing your (and your guests’!) carbon footprint. Even better is that you can have all your guests stay overnight in one place!
The Wedding Weekend at Hidden Valley Retreat and Spa allows couples to rent the entire property for their wedding (full and exclusive use – no other events) and sleep up to 40 of their guests. Couples can bring in all of their own vendors – or go completely DIY and have family and friends pitch in during the event. (The site has two kitchens – why not enlist friends and family with some of the food prep?)
