in the South Bay's least populated redwood canyon. Here, rare groves of
towering Redwoods trees, located in only three places in the world, surround
rolling lawns and views of Monterey Bay. Hold your very special event
in this beautiful, peaceful setting, only one and half hours from San
Francisco and 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport.

and receptions and other comprehensive wedding services, we help you create
uniquely personal celebrations at affordable rates. While planning a wedding
may seem a daunting task, our friendly, experienced staff will help orchestrate
a magical event from start to finish that can include over night accommodations,
a choice of sites for your ceremony and reception and fabulous food. Unlike
many sites we allow you to bring your own alcohol, representing a large
financial savings, and impose no time restrictions on your reception or
Pema Osel Ling offers delicious feasts for your wedding, including rehearsal
and reception dinners, brunches and more. Our on-site chef Peter Marti,
uses local meats, fresh fish, and seasonal produce, much of it from local
organic gardens. Vegetarians are welcome and all meals are prepared with
creative direction from our wedding couples.

rates, Pema Osel Ling is a perfect choice for your very special event!
"...I can't even tell you how many thrilled, satisfied eaters came up
to me to say that it was the best wedding food (or simply the best food,
period!) they had ever had. I am so grateful for your flexibility and
creativity and your amazing powers to put forth these absolute FEASTS
that bring such health-filled joy to everyone around you. I will obviously
never forget my own wedding, but I also won't forget how well we ate."
"The open flexible attitude of the staff with their willingness to let
us celebrate long into the night, the beautiful location, and the GREAT
food, made my wedding weekend at Pema Osel Ling an absolute joy for everyone!
Thank you and many kudos!"
