Emma Esteb + Sherri Hildebrandt

Amber Lea Acres’ owner Amber Palla believes “It’s not just about a wedding day, but a wedding weekend.” Drawing from her and her husband, Julian’s, own “glamping” experiences in Zimbabwe and South Africa, the pair has created the perfect locale for a weekend getaway, wedding or honeymoon. Located in Tekamah on 42 acres of rolling hills with cottonwood trees and picturesque sunsets overlooking a pond, the property has three unique tents for the perfect glam camping experience. Each tent has a split heating and cooling system to accommodate almost any weather during the season, mid-April to Early December. A mini-fridge and an en suite bathroom including a shower and clawfoot bathtub elevate the comfort level. 

Indoor and outdoor spaces are available for weddings and receptions. The Crib is a quaint barn that offers a fanciful, intimate space for up to 40. A large concrete patio with Edison bulbs surrounds the barn and is the perfect space to host a band, have a glitzy cocktail hour, or a tranquil picnic spread. Finley Hall is a gathering space with an open hall, a bar area and a covered patio that can host up to 60 guests, an ideal setting for a rehearsal dinner, bridal party prep zone or a gift-opening breakfast. An event tent can be put up anywhere on the property for additional wedding components, from ceremony to reception. 

Couples who marry at Amber Lea Acres receive a free night’s stay post-wedding festivities. If a newly wedded couple chooses ALA as a honeymoon getaway, they receive champagne and a charcuterie spread on the house., Tekamah
