Me and my fiancé recently took a tour of the barn at crooked river ranch. It is absolutely beautiful and very well designed for a wedding. It also comes with a lot of wedding decorations that go very well with the barn. Rose is great to work with and very accommodating.Sent on 10/10/2020

Our wedding day was perfect! Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful it was: the Barn, the land, the fire pit, everything looked so amazing it was like being in a fairytale. Rose and the staff assisted all our vendors, directing them where to set up and making little adjustments as needed. The bathrooms were kept clean all day. We did have some rain but they were prepared for everything so even that didn't ruin any of our special day. We're so glad we chose Crooked River Ranch and highly recommend this venue to others!Sent on 01/26/2020

This venue was the best for a DIY bride like myself. From the start of the planning process, Rose was giving advise and making sure I was on track with my planning. I was given great recommendations but was allowed to use whom ever I desired. I ended up going with all of her recommendations. She has a beautiful piece of property.
Day of, their team went above and beyond helping getting set up. She allowed me to change anything I needed too. She even had someone sew pants for the father of the groom who split his pants.Sent on 02/06/2020
