This boho inspired wedding at the Waterfall Lodge in Santa Cruz California, was a memorable day. From the stunning floral arrangements, lace wedding gown, and elegant boho touches throughout the ceremony and reception I thoroughly enjoyed all the special moments of Thomas + Colleen’s day. I still can’t get over the epic first look of Colleen with her bridesmaid and the Thomas reacted to Collen’s dress during their first look. Yes there were many first look moments for this amazing California wedding! One of my favorite moments from their gallery was sunset bridals in the redwood forest!!!

The Waterfall Lodge & Retreat is peaceful and private, nestled in the lush redwood forest of the Santa Cruz mountains.
We are located 20 minutes from the beaches of Santa Cruz, California and are about a half hour from San Jose.
The lodge is built with 19th Century reclaimed barn wood and lumber milled from downed trees on the mountain itself. A breathtaking blend of historic beauty and rustic charm, you’ll feel immediately transported. Onsite you will find 32 cabins, a magnificent lodge, a sunny meadow, and endless opportunities for adventure among the redwoods. The first thing you’ll notice when stepping foot onto Waterfall Lodge is the way the fresh air feels as it completely surrounds you. Everywhere you look is full of beauty and wonder. Get lost in the moment as you gather with friends, truly enjoying each other away from the hustle of everyday life. Enjoy activities in the sunny meadow, laugh together as you enjoy a meal around the fire, then fall asleep in one of our cozy cabins as you listen to the falling water of Hidden Falls.
