About

Newaukum River Ranch is a rustic wedding venue located in Chehalis, Washington. This idyllic barn is surrounded by vast forests and offers couples an opportunity to celebrate with their loved ones in a secluded haven. Nestled on the tranquil Newaukum River halfway between Portland and Seattle, this destination is both picturesque and convenient for guests traveling from the cities.

Facilities and Capacity

The property boasts many beautiful spaces for romantic nuptials or photoshoots. The river runs the entirety of our property, providing a bubbling natural soundtrack to your special day. Many couples choose to hold their ceremonies beside the river under the shade of the towering trees and wedding tables are lively against the river bank. Alternately, the barn provides a quiet retreat to exchange vows, and it can quickly be transformed into the reception venue. The barn is equipped with refrigerators to keep food and drinks chilled for the dining portion of the evening. Newaukum River Ranch can comfortably accommodate up to 150 guests. You can enjoy exclusive access to the venue for your entire event weekend, and you and your wedding party can stay in the ranch house. The three-bedroom cabin features a hot tub you can relax in before getting ready for the festivities. Loved ones can also stay and camp on the property. They have on-site fire pits so you can cozy up around a campfire when the sun sets.

Services Offered

The staff at Newaukum River Ranch strive to make every wedding held here unforgettable. They are happy to offer setup and cleanup, along with assistance in decorating the event space. A selection of decor along with tables and chairs are available to use for your gathering. A member of staff can be present for the ceremony rehearsal as well as on the big day to coordinate vendors. If you require an event planner or other vendors, they can provide a list of businesses they have previously worked with. Along with weddings, this venue also accommodates rehearsal dinners and a variety of other events and parties.

    Gorgeous wedding and event venue! Shannon, the venue coordinator, makes the process smooth and seamless.

    Luxury wedding venue with a rustic feel. You can dress this venue up to the nines or keep it simple and its still beautiful. Would have my wedding at this location over and over again. You can rent it for the day or all weekend. We rented it the whole weekend and was so happy with our choice!

    Beautiful views and amenities

    My best friend was married here and it was such a wonderful time. The staff was helpful and attentive. The property was gorgeous with so many different beautiful backdrops for pictures. One of the best weddings I’ve been to.

    Simply perfect!

    My husband and I got married at the Newaukum River Ranch in August. Everything was simply perfect! We had 3 locations set up along the ranch where different parts of the wedding took place. We had our ceremony in the charming alder patch, dinner in a separate area looking down on the river where there was just enough shade & breeze to cool us off on the hot summer day, and drinks and dancing in the barn. Our guests were able to camp which really made for a unique experience and we were able to enjoy the entire weekend with family and friends! Shannon was an absolute rockstar and really turned my visions in my head into a reality. If you are looking for a stunning venue this is your place!

    Newaukum River Ranch's reply:

    I love how well you took advantage of the options provided at the ranch. Your vision was classic and perfectly suited for our river, not to mention beautiful!!
