    We had our April weekend wedding at Dancing Fish Vineyards and couldn't have been happier. Brad and Nancy are such a delight to work with. Fun, flexible, accommodating and responsive. We wanted to have a wedding weekend and it was hard to find a place to do that, without being a hotel. We also wanted an outdoor wedding but being Seattle you always have to plan for rain so we needed an indoor option as well. As soon as we visited DFV we knew that was the place for us. We booked the property a year out from our wedding date and made multiple visits over that year taking friends and family to see the place. Every single time we felt welcomed, tried new wine and always had fun. Brad and Nancy are continually making additions to the venue so it was fun to see all the new things they had. We booked the venue/property Friday to Sunday. We had our rehearsal dinner in the farmhouse and welcome party in the party barn on Friday. Wedding ceremony (outside) and reception in the party barn on Saturday. We had 93 guests at our wedding so we rented a tent for the front barn patio which is where we had our cocktail hour, buffet and bar. All 95 of us plus the DJ fit in the barn no problem. We decorated the barn exactly how we wanted and set up all the tables in long rows and it was perfectly spectacular in my opinion. Throughout the whole weekend everyone was just so impressed with the beauty of the grounds. There are tons of VRBO/Air BnB's for people to rent as well as some small hotels in Langley.Dancing Fish delivered on all our expectations and more! We will definitely be visiting DFV/Brand and Nancy and trying their new wines again soon! Thank you for making our wedding so perfect and memorable!!

    This gorgeous barn & vineyard wedding is an awesome spot for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, or party! I'm a wedding coordinator who has worked on several events there. The owners are relaxed, friendly and great to deal with. The setting is pastoral, with rolling lawns and a vineyard, and even horses nearby. The barn is very picturesque inside, with so much wood and high ceilings; outside the barn are two patios - one small and another large enough for an outdoor dinner. There's lots of room for lawn games, pretty gardens for wandering, and don't miss the "loafing shed" up on the hill, the perfect spot for a cocktail hour complete with a sweet chandelier and a bocce court! The total bonus is the vacation rental cottage on the property where you or special guests can stay; it's also a great place for the bridal party to get ready. Every client I've worked with there has been super happy with their experience overall.

    The Dancing Fish Farm was a fantastic venue and reception location. Everyone that attended said they had the best time. Mr and Mrs Thompson were so wonderful and their farm is just gorgeous. Perfect place for a wedding event!

    Dancing Fish Vineyards is easily one of our favorite venues on Whidbey. Located on a gorgeous hillside setting, their farmhouse, barn and vineyard are all perfectly constructed. The barn features a lovely back patio-- perfect for outdoor dinners in the summer, as well as a beautiful interior featuring a full kitchen, indoor bathrooms (a rare find at island venues) and a rustic event space that works equally well for an covered ceremony, cocktail hour space or dance floor. If you're looking for a rustic-chic venue on Whidbey, look no further!

    Dancing Fish Farm has everything a couple could ask for. As a Whidbey Island Bridal Makeup Artist, I have enjoyed working with Dancing Fish Brides and their bridal parties. I feel really blessed to be a part of a winning vendor team, working with Nancy at her gorgeous wedding venue. It's such a great venue! When I am working on location at Dancing Fish, I find the Farm House to be ideal for the 'get ready'. It's so spacious, comfortable and the natural lighting coming in the southern windows creates the best lighting for makeup. This location really works well for the entire wedding party, you never have to leave the property! Couples arrive and can immediately begin living their dream!

    I love this venue! So versatile and charming: the barn is beautiful with high ceilings and all wood interior and the kitchen will thrill your caterer. There are vineyards that make a great ceremony backdrop and are wonderful for photo opps. The loafing shed is the perfect place for cocktail hour, there's a fire pit and bocce ball and lots of room for lawn games. And let's not forget the winery and tasting room! Plus there's a guesthouse for getting ready and for a key guest to stay, and a nice lounge for the gents to get ready. The owners are so nice and accommodating - you should definitely check it out!
