First and foremost, CONGRATULATIONS to you!! What an exciting time for you both and all your family and friends!

It would absolutely be our honor to share in the BEGINNING TO YOUR FOREVER. We absolutely love our place and are always excited to share its tranquility with others. Once guests arrive, they never want to leave. Rustic River Wedding & Venue is an OVER NIGHT LODGING venue in Cusick, Washington. The property spans over 10 acres of fields, forest, creeks and river frontage, offering couples an absolute slice of paradise in which to say “I do". We are located about an hours drive from Spokane and about 90 minutes from the Spokane Airport.

Facilities and Capacity

Rustic River Wedding & Venue sits at the heart of a lush woodland defined by thick groves of Cedar trees. The robust flow of the creek can be seen and heard as it meanders through the forest and the property. Nature-loving couples will fall head-over-heels for its sweeping vistas of tree-tops and deep green fields. The venue offers a level of comfort not usually seen in such undisturbed wilderness. Couples can choose from 5 ceremony sites, depending on their personal styles. They can exchange vows in the open space of the Courtyard, which hosts a grape vine-draped entry, church pews, and a backdrop of trees and an open river. The 50' long Pergola is an equally tempting prospect, and can also be used for the ceremony, reception dinner tables or a stunning photoshoot before, during or after the ceremony with the forest background offering a sense of peace amongst the large pergola timbers. For a service that is truly close to nature, the River’s Edge is a beautiful choice. Offering the Pend Oreille River as a backdrop, couples can celebrate their love in a picturesque fashion. For those who love the rustic feel of a true historic barn, this barn was standing in 1874! You can choose from Out Back of the Barn with the open field and free spirit style of the rusted metal arched bridge, aged wood and draped Edison lights adding the perfect balance of ambience to your setting. If you prefer to celebrate indoors, the Inside of the Barn is a dream come true! With over 5,000 sq feet of space, 100+ yr old natural wood, the wide-open vaulted roofline, with lofts on both sides overlooking the main floor below, and a separate covered area for catering; this barn is sure to be the fairy-tale barn setting you and your guests dream about.

The entire venue provides a magical setting for an intimate gathering of friends and family. There are two separate areas to get ready in for the wedding party’s use and a variety of accommodations on offfer. The rustic and charming turn-key Farmhouse includes 3 bedrooms and a loft for a peaceful night’s sleep in the silence of nature, 2 full bathrooms, the Bridal Suite, kitchen, dining, living room and office area. The Groom's Cabin doubles as a Guest or Honeymoon Suite; hosting a Murphy bed and a full bathroom with shower. Elsewhere, the campgrounds invite parties to park their RV's or pitch a tent and enjoy chats around the yardgames and propane firepits as dusk falls. 2023 will host "Glamping Tents" and "Forest Forts" for extra lodging options at additional cost.

A Little About Our Venue:

*Our barn was standing in 1874. It is absolutely breath taking! With over 5000 sq feet, it has 2 lofts that over look the main area and then a covered and enclosed side wing that is perfect for the caterer to set up in. This barn can host reception, wedding, dancing; or incase of bad weather, it can host all the events.

*We have 8 RV electrical hook ups and unlimited camping spots.

*The Farmhouse is the entire house! You do not share it with anyone. It has 2 full bathrooms & 3 bedrooms; sleeping 9 adults & 1 toddler bed. You can add cots or blow up mattresses too if you want. It is turn-key so you do not need to bring any bedding, towels, coffee, trash bags, paper towels, toiletries, cookware etc. We try to provide everything you need.

*The Grooms cabin sleeps 2 and has a full bathroom as well. Again, turn-key.

*There are 5 ceremony sites depending on your style. We have : The Rivers Edge; a 50 foot stout big timbered Pergola; Inside the Barn, Out Back of the Barn ; & the Red Bricked Courtyard.
*There are acres of forest , rivers edge and creekside areas with old cedar groves for photo perfect spots as well.
*We have ample parking available. It is a big field so there's plenty of room. For those who have difficulty walking, there is a circular driveway so you can drop off those needing assistance at the main area and then circle around to park the car.
*Our 1917 schoolhouse has been converted to a food/flower prep area. It has 2 commercial fridges and lots of counter space to give more storage for food, drinks, catering needs, food prep, flower prep, etc.
*Depending on the time of year and the river levels, we also have a 900+ foot long beach area and a dock available that makes amazing pictures!
*We have a TON of decorations that you are welcome to use for free and all of our tables, chairs and linens are included in the price!
*Our price for the entire package for 2023 is $14,500 for all 3 days! We have found that most venues charge between $6-14,000 and you have to squeeze it all in, from start to cleaned up and everyone gone, in just 12 hours; plus many charge for all the extra amenities. Our price includes ALL the amenities mentioned above plus all tables, chairs, linens, access to all our decorations, the lodging and camping/RV spots. In the home and the guest cabin, we supply all the bedding, towels, pillows, TP, Paper Towels, etc, etc. For 2023 we will be adding additional lodging. The "Glamping" and "Forest Forts" will be an additional fee.

*We also can provide a package that is all inclusive; including photographer, DJ, make-up artist, hair stylist, coordinator, florist, videographer, and the venue. Please contact if that is of interest to you.

    Best. Weekend. Ever.

    Our entire family had the best weekend at this venue. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more.
    The owners are extremely helpful, organized, communicative, and kind. The house is a turnkey airbnb with so many things that make the weekend prepared for and fun for all. There was so much space, a chance to be loud and dance until late, and room for people to camp and tent.
    Our wedding felt like a big boujee camping trip with our favorite people! If you have inquiries, i reccomend visiting this place in person and it will click 😊🫶🏼

    Rustic River Wedding Venue's reply:

    Thank you beyond words for your amazing review and for giving us the honor of being a part of your beginning. Your entire group was so fun and positive the whole weekend! We loved how you completely changed out the settings for rehearsal and reception. It did feel very elegant and boujee 😆 but still chill and with such a fun uplifting vibe! It was absolutely perfect and beautiful. We love that you got your fairytale wedding 😘

    We got married on May 15th 2021 and it was something so amazing I couldn’t even imagine it. I would give it 1000 stars if I could! The owners of this venue are amazing to say the least. So many people have reached out to us and said this was easily the best wedding they had ever been to! It also help how beautiful the space is and how much is available to you! They offer so much and then some! We are so glad that we chose the rustic river to start our forever.
