For outside weddings we have a beautiful 12'x12' pavilion with rustic bench seating. The pavillion can be dressed to match your colors and theme. It's also a good spot to place a small band for an outdoor party. On a clear day, Mt. Hood is situated directly behind the pavillion, centered between the posts.
You'll want photos with Harvey, our antique farm truck. The long dirt roads, the wood pile, the trees, the setting sun, the little waterfall, and various old barns offer beautiful photo settings.
There is plenty of room for yard games, and we're already set up for horseshoes. The fire pit is surrounded by straw bales in the summer, and overhead Edison-style bare bulb strings add ambiance as the sun starts to set.
Speaking of sunset: we have here some of the most beautiful skies I've ever seen. The sun actually sets away from the wedding pavillion, but sometimes the beautiful colors wrap all the way around the sky, as far as the wedding pavillion. Even when they don't, the sun setting through the treeline is breathtaking.
We're still open! By working closely with our amazing wedding couples and keeping a sharp eye on the future, we're confident Heart of Rock Farm will survive these "interesting" times.
Wedding planning is a major challenge for all right now, but we're moving forward with confidence. We've rescheduled or adapted most of our summer events and might need to reschedule some more, which will mean fewer available dates in 2021. At this point, though, our current clients have to be our first priority.
Washington County is in Phase 1 so Local Gatherings are limited to 25 people. Since we're now grouped with Multnomah and Clackamas counties, we can't predict when the county will move to Phase 2. With Phase 2 we'll be able to again host our normal limit of 150 guests in the summer and 120 in winter. In the meantime we have a couple of open dates for shorter/smaller events this year. Check the Is My Date Open panel for availability.
We're touring and booking for ...(continued on back)
We're booking for those dates as well as 2021, and still conducting tours by appointment. Limit of 2 adult participants for the on-site tour, but you're welcome to use Facetime or another program to include others virtually. We're practicing appropriate safety precautions before, during and after visits.
Barn Dances are on hold until things settle down.
We're always available by email, phone or text. If you have a question, please don't hesitate!
Hang in there folks. This has been a tough time for the wedding industry and especially 2020 wedding couples, but we'll get through this together!
