Amazing venue!

Most beautiful venue I've ever seen. We wanted something different from a country club and this was our dream. Extremely affordable and Rose was wonderful to deal with through the entire process. The venue is beautiful along with the upstairs bridal suite. Rose knows her venue better than I ever could've anticipated and because of this, communicated what she knows works best. She had everything ready to go days prior and made sure to communicate with any questions she had for both us and the other vendors. Everything was absolutely perfect - wedding day went off without a hiccup.

Amazing venue for my bohemian barn wedding!

I just had my wedding and reception at Crooked River Ranch this past weekend and I could not have been happier! The venue fit perfectly for my bohemian barn wedding vibe I was going for. It was the perfect day, and thanks to the owner Rose for making the whole experience very easy for me. My guests are still talking about how beautiful of a venue it is. The barn and property alone is amazing, but even more so she already has quite a bit of stuff to use on-site. Everything from a fire pit, cornhole boards, lawn games, signs, s’mores cart and so much more! 10/10 would recommend this venue to anyone!
