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 124-year-old Lighthouse and Keeper’s Home offer amazing views of the Oregon Coast and at the same time it 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 wedding 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 are available for groups up to 30 people and offered year round. Packages can be customized for any group size and need. A catered reception can also be added to these packages.
Weddings of 31-150 people can be accommodated in a tent in the fenced 1 acre yard west of the Keeper’s home from May through October. The price of these weddings at Heceta Lighthouse B&B will vary depending on the date of the wedding, the type of wedding you choose, and the number of guests attending.
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!
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 and Reception Set Up
The Heceta Lighthouse B&B staff will be responsible for catering set up and clean up and will assist the wedding party with other details. Special decorations, flowers, and place settings are your personal touch and may be provided by family or outside vendors.
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, front porch, or in front of the historic 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 541-547-3416.
