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

A Pinterest Board dream wedding venue!
It was a dream!! My pinterest board dream wedding was at a barn and looking back, I felt like my wedding could be someone else's dream board. The owners made every step of the way so easy and were so helpful, from communication to setup, to the end of the evening! She heard my vision and helped bring it to life. The property is BEAUTIFUL and made for the best backdrop to our special day. The bride and the girls all got ready in the loft inside the barn and it was just perfect. It was setup so quaint and was the perfect bridal suite. It easily fit the 10 of us. My favorite part of that was the windows that looked out to the cocktail hour area and the main entrance. I could see people arriving and people setting up. Just loved those small moments. Our ceremony took place back behind the barn with all the trees as the perfect backdrop. The sun set on the other side of the barn, so the lighting for our ceremony was beautiful. After the ceremony, all the guests enjoyed cocktail hour out to the side of the barn under the trees and near the firepit area. We took our family portraits and bride/groom photos out past where the ceremony took place. Between the lighting that peeked through the trees, to the scenery, to still being able to hear the music of cocktail hour, it all made that hour so special. The photographer loved all the amazing options for bride/groom photos and did I mention that lighting!! From where the sun sets, it peaks through just perfectly between the trees and around the barn. The reception took place inside the barn and also out near the fire pit with strung lights throughout. We added other lights in other trees around that area so outside was so beautiful all twinkly. We had 130 guests and they fit so perfectly in the space. We had the caterers setup, the DJ setup and the photobooth setup and they all had the perfect places in each corner of the barn. All of our ideas for how we wanted our wedding to look came together beautifully in the space! All the guests raved about the barn, the property and how wonderful everything was. We had the best time and we didn't have to worry about one thing that day/evening. I still look back on that day and wish we could replay it b/c it was beyond amazing. We would recommend this venue to anyone and hope so many other couples get to celebrate their most special day at this magical location. Our wedding was everything and more!!Sent on 09/26/2019
