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 126-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.


Here is a link to our Facebook wedding album. Please contact our event coordinator at Celebrations@HecetaLighthouse.com. We look forward to hearing from you!



"Misty,

Many thanks again!

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.
