    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.

    Simply amazing!

    My daughter and I visited at least 6 other venues before coming across Crooked River Ranch. When we first got there, I fell in love. The barn and property are absolutely gorgeous! Many of the other barns we saw didn’t come close to comparing to Crooked River Ranch. It was well kept and taken care of. You could tell that Rose; the owner and her husband take great pride in the venue and property. On top of the beauty of the venue I instantly felt comfortable with Rose. She is down to earth, detail-oriented, caring and just wants to help create couples dream weddings. I was also amazed that the barn was similar in price to most of the other barns I viewed but it came with decorations. This was huge because I knew the price of decorations could add up fast. Mostly everything I was looking for she already had. She had very similar taste to mine so that definitely worked out in my favor! Even if your taste in décor is a little different there are many decorations that I think can/will work for most people.
    The property is just as stunning as the barn. I remember when I first saw the firepit and I was in aww with how gorgeous it was. Most of the firepits I saw beforehand were nice, average, but the firepit here was breath taking! It was classier than most and that is what I was looking for. You can get some of the best pictures there! There are many spots where you can have great pictures taken.
    After viewing the venue, I called my fiancé at the time and told him how amazing it was, and I wanted him to come see it with me. He told me in the beginning to look without him until I found something I was really interested in and then he’d come see it with me. So, Rose was ever so kind and let me go back again with my fiancé and mother to look at the venue. They both fell in love as well! This is another reason I was happy booking with this venue because Rose was so accommodating. I must have asked to go up there 6 more times this includes a few days before my actual wedding. Rose always accommodated and never complained once. Speaking of accommodating she answered my millions of questions as well, quickly and without ever making me feel like I was being a bother. If I was working with someone different this most likely wouldn’t have been the case. So thankfully I had Rose to help ease my anxieties and support me throughout the whole process.
    Rose also went above and beyond by adding lights to the inside barn poles. She also added up lighting to the whole property as well. I love lights, so I was ecstatic when she added more, and it turned out beautiful!
    Our wedding ended up being the fairy tale wedding I was dreaming off. It wouldn’t have been possible without the venue Crooked River Ranch and Rose, her husband and staff! Everyone keeps telling me, my husband and family members how gorgeous our wedding was, even those who have gone to multiple weddings. 😊
    I can’t recommend Crooked River Ranch enough! Your wedding will be stunning and stress free with the help of Rose and her staff!
