Your dream wedding shouldn't cost a fortune,
now it costs almost nothing at all

Our unique event villages enable anyone to have their dream wedding at a fraction of the cost. It sounds too good to be true, but that's just the beginning. We've completely reimagined what a wedding should be and have built spaces from the ground up to make your celebration not just the highlight of your life, but an experience your guests will never forget.

couples are spending too much for too little

Too Expensive, Not Enough Time

The average couple now spends over $40,000 for their wedding - often just a single day event. When including guest hotels, food, and other travel expenses, the total amount spent quickly rises to over $100,000. We have a better idea - spend that money on a new home, savings for a rainy day, or starting a family instead!

Welcome to off path venues

Your own private retreat with everything you need for fun, food, and relaxation

Most weddings include dozens of vendors and service providers – each charging separate, often extremely high prices for their services. Off Path provides almost everything - drastically consolidating costs and provide amazing value at a price you and your guests won’t be able to believe. In short, you’ll end up paying almost nothing, your guests will end up saving hundreds of dollars, and you’ll both get an experience of a lifetime.

Your Dream wedding at zero cost

Bring your guests, we'll do the rest

Off Path Venues operates on a simple model - if our rooms are full, we'll take care of almost everything else. From a free venue to wedding day decorations, drinks, chef prepared meals and more, you shouldn't have to pay a fortune for a single day event. Now you can have a 5 day celebration, family reunion, and relaxing retreat with the people you love most for just pennies on the dollar.

Welcome to the village

Everything you need within walking distance - fun, food, drinks, and more

Each Off Path location is equipped with several restaurants, bars, and cafes. We serve the best locally sourced ingredients we can get our hands on and can customize menus depending on what you’d like served. Since a chef is on-site at every location, we can make just about anything you’d like if you let us know in advance. Otherwise we’re proud to serve a fantastic, seasonal menu throughout the year.

Restaurants

Each Off Path location is equipped with professional kitchens and led by an executive chef. We take great care to serve amazing food, drinks, and snacks throughout your stay.

Mountain Cafe Off Path Venues

Bars/Cafes

Off Path bars are the best places to hangout and grab a drink with old friends. In the morning we serve an amazing brunch spread (including mimosas and a Bloody Mary bar).

Spa/Health/Yoga

Visit our spas for full-service relaxation, saunas, and hot tubs with a view. Join morning yoga, workouts, or a hike to a sunrise overlook to get moving before a fun day with friends and family.

Adventure Center

Each Off Path location is surrounded by adventure. Explore on your own or book an adventure with one of our local professionals for rock climbing, scuba, fishing, rafting, hiking, and more.

Overlooks/Hangouts

Layout and relax at one of our overlook vistas to enjoy the views we're famous for. Located both in the village and around the property, you won't want to miss out on a single sunrise/sunset.

Beautiful spaces, amazing views

Have your ceremony outdoors, indoors or at a small chapel - it's up to you!

We've taken special care to reserve the best locations on our properties for your wedding day. While each location has a central ceremony space designed to compliment the surrounding countryside, you can also choose to have your ceremony outdoors - whether by the water, on a mountain vista, on the beach, or wherever you'd like. If bad weather moves in, we're ready to move your celebration indoors to keep you and your guests warm and dry. Many locations also have a small Christian chapel that can be used for ceremonies.

Celebrate the night away

Intimate reception areas designed for entertaining

After your ceremony, your guests can head over to the reception area for the evening. Our large venue domes are designed to make it feel like you're still outside (i.e. huge windows with breathtaking views), but with all the comforts of a professional event space. Multiple bars, game areas outside, viewing decks, professional sound system, dance floor, photo booths, and more will make your guests feel right at home. Arrange tables and decorate however you'd like - your wedding planner and our staff will do our best to bring your vision to life.

Chef Prepared Meals from local, sustainable sources

Plate Perfect

All Off Path wedding couples get their choice of free wedding day meals prepared by our on-site chefs.

5 Days of Bliss

The minute you arrive at your wedding location we’ll be there to help every step of the way. You and your partner will stay in our unique wedding suite free of charge (private and away from the other accommodations); you’ll have special extra large domes for both wedding parties to get ready and hangout; and everyone will have access to food and drink at our restaurants and bars. Check-in is quick and easy with our app-based check-in system. Your wedding app will also enable guests to access their rooms; buy food, drinks, activities without cash/card (including spending and budget limits for children), and allows them to pay all at once before they leave (or prepay for a discount). This is not only more convenient, but reduces lost items and enables easy tracking and budgeting while you’re here.

Off Path

a safe place for you and your family

Covid-19 Precautions

The spread of Covid-19 has forever changed how groups gather together – both legally and logistically. Lucky for us, Off Path was well situated to adapt to the concerns of our visitors and the requirements of local governments.

Limited, Small Groups – With limits on group sizes and sites organized for privacy, you and your family will have limited exposure to other visitors and our staff. While there may be another group staying with us at the time (depending on how many rooms you book), each accommodation block is located in separate areas to maximize togetherness, privacy, and health for you and your family.

Rooms – Each room is standalone and not connected to any other buildings. This means no shared air, walking spaces, or contact/touch points. Rooms for each booking are also grouped together so you’ll only be near family and friends for your wedding week.

Common Areas – We’ve expanded our sanitation and protection protocols at all our restaurants, bars, cafes, spas, lounges, and other public areas. Sanitizer is available everywhere you go and we’ve taken the utmost precautions to ensure you stay healthy.

Isolated – Off Path Venues are naturally isolated and closed to the public, which means visitors won’t be coming in and out on a regular basis.

Fresh Air – From rooms to wedding spaces, we don’t recirculate or even connect the air between buildings. The air we use is pulled from the outdoors – some of the freshest anywhere in the world.

Affordable – Perhaps more than anything else, Covid-19 has shown us how uncertain the near future can be. While we’ve always thought it was crazy to spend $40,000 on a wedding, it’s now more important than ever to save your money for a rainy day.
