Weddings

Very special couples have chosen the Heceta Lighthouse B&B as their wedding destination and we are happy that you are considering us for your special day. The 127-year-old Lighthouse and Keeper’s Home offer amazing views of the Oregon Coast and at the same time is a home where family and friends can feel comfortable and relaxed. Although every couple has been lured to Heceta Head for these reasons, each wedding we have experienced has been unique. We appreciate each family’s diversity and look forward to joining in your celebration!


We have created our ceremony packages to fit the needs of couples who would like to arrive on the day of their wedding and have all their planning completed for them. Wedding packages can be customized for groups up to 150 people, and offered year round for groups of 30 or less. A catered reception can also be added to these packages.

“Misty,

Thank you for making Lindsay and Jeremy’s big event so special. It was wonderful being in the hands of someone who had every detail under control and made it all look effortless.

Many thanks again!

Nathan”

The Details

Weekends in May through October require an agreement to hold the ceremony and catered reception with the whole house rented. A ceremony only option can be arranged Monday -Thursday 11:30-2:30 when our calendar permits.

Wedding Consulting

The Heceta Lighthouse B&B event coordinator will assist in the planning and set up on your wedding day. We provide prior services such as wedding consultations, as well as day-of services, such as a wedding day facilitator and assistance with set-up. We will provide resources and advice for each phase of your wedding planning.

Our vendor list offers an extensive and diverse group of professionals, all who have proven to be the best in the area. Whether you are looking for flowers, music or the perfect cake, this list will save you considerable time and offers the best local services. If it’s not on our list, we will help you find it.

The Ceremony

There are several options for the location of your wedding ceremony at the Lightstation. You can choose to have your ceremony at the Keeper’s

House on the West Lawn, wrap around front porch, or in front of the historic Keepers’ Home where the sun sets each night behind the rocks and the lighthouse stands watch. Others find the parlors or elegant dining room in the Keeper’s House an intimate atmosphere to exchange vows. Special arrangements can be made with Oregon State Parks to have your ceremony at the beach below after Labor Day and before Memorial Weekend, and groups of ten people or less can choose a ceremony next to the Lighthouse. To obtain a permit or ask further questions about wedding ceremonies on the beach or lighthouse tower grounds, email heceta.h.lighthouse@state.or.us or call 541-547-3416.
