About Us

Create memories of a lifetime at Pema Osel Ling (Lotus Land of Clear Light), 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.

Offering weekend and mid-week destination weddings, one-day ceremonies 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 other activities.

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.

With our stunning natural beauty, warm and experienced staff and affordable 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."
