Lately I’ve been offering ideas about where to hold your wedding at Wallowa Lake or Joseph, Oregon. There are some new venues as well as some established locations that you can read about in previous blog posts on the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast blog. Here’s another one I haven’t mentioned previously.
The Wallowa Buddhist Temple is located outside of Joseph, OR, on a rural 5-acre property near Hurricane Creek. Set back amidst the pine and aspen trees in the Wallowa Mountain foothills, the temple is a quiet retreat location and suitable for small weddings. The temple follows the Serene Reflection Meditation (Soto Zen) tradition of Buddhism.
Reverend Meido Tuttle, assisted by Reverend Clairissa Beattie, are the resident monastics at this small, contemplative Buddhist temple. You can reach Rev. Meido via the temple’s website contact page or by calling her directly at (541) 432-6129.
We make it a point to visit the temple each year on New Year’s Day to help ring in the new year. Rev. Meido and Rev. Clairissa are happy to have visitors at the temple and are so welcoming of everyone. If you are considerng an intimate wedding in Northeastern Oregon, or are followers of the Buddhist traditions, then perhaps this temple would be a good choice for you.
