Create memories of a lifetime at the Amphitheatre of the Redwoods in the South Bay's least populated redwood canyon. Rare groves of towering redwood trees, located in only three places in the world, surround rolling lawns and views of Monterey Bay. Hold your enchanting event in this beautiful, peaceful setting, only one and a half hours from San Francisco and 45 minutes from San Jose International Airport.
Every wedding held here is unique and we take great joy in working with each couple to help them create a special celebration. Destination weddings are a popular choice for couples looking for a more relaxed way to celebrate with family and friends. Our facility gives you the ability to create a unique 2-3 day getaway. We offer two packages; a Friday-Sunday destination package and a Sunday Elopement package for those looking for a shorter or simpler affair. With our comprehensive wedding services, we help you create a uniquely personal celebration at affordable rates. Our friendly, experienced staff will orchestrate a magical event from start to finish.
Unlike many sites, we allow you to bring your own alcohol with no corkage fees, representing a large financial savings. We impose minimal time restrictions on your reception, although we do require that amplified music is off by ten p.m. to comply with county ordinances. At that time, if you have chosen an outdoor reception, you can move your party to one of the houses or to the starlit Bay View Meadow for a bonfire with acoustic music until 12am.
In addition to multiple locations for ceremonies and receptions, we also offer comfortable and affordable accommodations, delicious feasts for your wedding as well as rehearsal dinners, brunches and more. Our on-site chefs use local meats, fresh fish, and seasonal produce, much of it farm to table from from local organic sites. Vegetarians and Vegans are welcome and all meals are prepared with creative direction from our wedding couples.
We host just one wedding at a time and you will receive our undivided attention to fulfill your personal vision. With our stunning natural beauty, warm and experienced staff and affordable rates, the Amphitheatre of the Redwoods at Pema Osel Ling is a perfect choice for your very special event!

I cannot say enough great things about this venue. Literally everything went perfect the weekend of my wedding!
The site itself is absolutely breath-taking, the staff is ridiculously friendly, and the food was truly delicious!! Everything is all inclusive there and we were able to have a whole weekend event rather than just one special day. It allowed to spend quality time with friends and family that was priceless. My wedding would not have been my dream come true if it weren't for this place. I couldn't have been happier with everything they offered. Bottom line.. If you want an amazing mountain wedding with great people and delicious food, POL will exceed your expectations!
...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. - Megan McNamara
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!
