WEDDINGS AND REHEARSAL DINNERS

For a secluded garden wedding reception, a ceremony under the vines, a beautiful farm-to-table family dinner, or a large family-style rehearsal dinner, the Big Bear is perfect for an intimate event that can utilize both our indoor and outdoor spaces.

The full reservation of Big Bear is the most popular option for private events, and is best for staged events where your wedding ceremony might take place under the garden gape vines outdoors and be followed by an indoor cocktail reception, or adjacent family-style dinner on the patio.

Or welcome your family with a cocktail reception indoors at the bar, and then move outdoors for a large seated family-style dinner under the tent in the garden.
