Cheers to one of the best days ever at FivePine Lodge!! Literally a day in Central Oregon is already going to be amazing, but we also had DUCKS, cutie cabins, the most epic sunset + the cutest vintage table dinner setup for 2. Kailea + Byram are truly the sweetest couple + this day was an absolute dream.
Ever since photographing these two, FivePine Lodge has become one of my all-time favorite Central Oregon wedding venues. Seriously y’all, there is NO way to not fall in love with this place – it’s surrounded by massive ponderosa pines and wildflowers, and offers so many incredible services to couples + their guests. Can’t wait to tell you all about FivePine Lodge weddings & how to plan your own special day at this incredible venue throughout this blog!
Before we dive into all the deets, let’s get to know a bit more about the lodge itself.
FivePine Lodge is located in the town of Sisters in central Oregon, just 25 minutes from Bend and Redmond. It’s a super romantic destination in the middle of the central OR forest and makes for an amazing getaway, even if you’re from the Bend area and just want a weekend escape or you want to hold your wedding close enough that your friends & fam can travel to it! It’s secluded and private, situated amongst a large pine forest with over 30 cozy cabins, yet easily accessible from nearby towns.
The cost to stay at FivePine Lodge totally depends on the season you visit, how many guests you have, what kind of cabin you want, and what additional amenities + activities you want to book!
Check out the 6 different styles of cabins below:
FivePine Lodge offers a ton of different amenities, services, and extra activities that you can experience during your time there to make it as amazing as you can! Some of these fun bonuses you can add on to your stay include:
& soo much more! They truly do an incredible job of helping guests make the most out of their stay, and be able to customize their experience to fit what they’re personally looking for.
I’ll talk about this more below, but one of the reasons I freaking love FivePine Lodge is that the lodge has both indoor AND outdoor spaces for weddings! The indoor lodge space for winter weddings is absolutely beautiful, or if it’s warm outside, you can celebrate next to the wildflower pond, under the massive Ponderosa pines. So no need to worry about rain or unpredictable weather – the lodge has got you covered (literally, with their indoor, roofed space)!
Yes you can! Virtual tours are the bomb.com, especially for couples who are having a destination wedding at FivePine Lodge and won’t be able to visit in-person. You can take a fully virtual tour of FivePine Lodge here to get a feel for what your wedding could look like at the venue.
Picking the right venue for your wedding can be suuuuper difficult, especially when you’re considering 3-5 (or even 10!) options that are all amazing in their own ways. FivePine Lodge is an epic Central Oregon wedding venue in so many ways, but here are the top reasons why FivePine Lodge might be the right venue for your big day!
Many venues in the PNW only offer weddings during the late spring, summer, & early fall, as that’s when the weather is best for outdoor celebrations. You can’t really elope in a national or state park outdoors in the winter unless you’re down for freezing temps and snow-covered grounds! That’s why it’s awesome that FivePine Lodge has both indoor and outdoor spaces – you can hold your wedding here at ANY time of year, during any season, in any weather. Enjoy a romantic winter wedding in the warm, cozy lodge by the fireplace, or a summer wedding in the forest as the sun shines down on you through the trees!
There’s a reason FivePine Lodge is a really popular resort in the Central Oregon area, separate from weddings – the cabins you can stay in are seriously top-notch. The lodge describes its lodging as “Modern accommodations meet craftsman architecture,” with a wide variety of options available ranging from romantic couples suites, to spa-inspired luxury cabins, all the way to spacious cabins to host your closest friends/family members.
No matter which type of cabin you stay in, you’ll have access to a huge collection of lavish amenities, such as:
Every cabin is the epitome of luxurious tranquility that you and your partner SO deserve for your wedding experience. It’s super easy to turn your elopement or wedding into a romantic getaway for you and your boo – I highly recommend staying here for as long as possible, because you and your guests will neverrrr want to leave 😉 You can check out all the options here!
I always love recommending venues that have in-house catering, because that means there’s one less vendor for couples to worry about – and it makes your dining experience super smooth & easy! FivePine Catering places a focus on using local, quality, & sustainable ingredients in its dishes, bringing in food from local farmers and ranchers for the most delicious meals ever. When they say they offer a farm-to-table dining experience, they mean it literally! (Especially if you get a surprise visit from two special guests like Kailea + Byram did hahah)
Check out the HUGE FivePine Lodge wedding menu here and get ready for your mouth to waterrrr at all the incredible options you’ve got, from yummy pre-wedding snacks all the way to delish bites to fill your late-night cravings.
Yes, you heard that right – there’s a full spa on-site!! The Shibui Spa at FivePine offers a collection of totally luxurious spa services, from a blissful thermal soaking tub to body massages to facial wraps & waxes. And soooo much more! Get rid of those wedding day nerves (or give your body + mind a break after your wedding) by spending time in the relaxation lounge, indulging in the summer sun from the private sun deck, or book a romantic couples massage for a lil’ sensual celebration. You deserve it!
FivePine Lodge offers a few different wedding packages to fit every couple’s needs – which is one of the reasons I love the venue so much. Every couple is able to totally customize the venue’s spaces to fit their unique wedding and to host their group size + create whatever type of wedding atmosphere they want. So if you’ve been asking “Okay Dawn, we love this venue – but how much does a wedding at FivePine Lodge cost?,” I’m about to give you all the answers!
The first package that the lodge offers is their Signature Wedding Package, which is perfect for larger weddings at the lodge. You can host up to 200 guests with this package no matter the season, and you’ll get full access to the event center, lawn, & patio for 11 hours on a Saturday.
Here’s what’s included in the package:
