* In good weather, access to the north lawn with lots of room for lawn games and outdoor activities. 

* Wedding Pavilion with rustic bench seating for your ceremony, weather permitting.  The Pavilion faces Mt. Hood and frames the mountain between its posts. 

* In cold weather (or if it rains on your wedding day), we’ll set up a cute indoor chapel for the ceremony.    

* Table Seating (tables and chairs) for up to 150 people in the warmer months or 100 in the off-season (Nov-Apr).  No need to set up tables & chairs or take them down afterward (unless some are used outdoors).  We’ll set them up for you before you arrive.    

* Linens for the tables we provide.

* Catering prep area (not a full kitchen).  Hire a caterer or choose to self-cater.

* Large air conditioned Bride's Room with private bathroom (for weddings only).

* Large air conditioned "Bunk House" (Groom’s Room) in the Old Red Barn (for weddings only).

* Huge dance floor:  Up to 28-ft x 55-ft (1,540 sq ft).  (The size of the dance floor depends upon the number of indoor tables needed.)

* Space for a band or DJ near the dance floor with excellent power support and good acoustics.  

* Large disco/mirror ball above the dance floor.  

* Giant lighted “LOVE” letters in the overhead display loft.

* Large screen TV for slide show. 

* Point-&-shoot digital cameras for guests' use (indoor use only).  We'll put the photos on your thumb drive for you at the end of the night.

* In good weather, photos with Harvey, our antique 1951 2-ton flatbed hay truck. 

* Use of the fire pit, which is encircled by rustic bench seating during the warmer months.  Blankets are available for comfort.  Edison-style bare bulb lighting adds ambiance in the evening.

* 3-stall luxury-style bathroom trailer with porcelain fixtures, flush toilets, running water, beautiful interior, heat/air conditioning, and music. The waiting area is covered and lighted.  

* If your photographer is brave, we can put him/her 34 feet in the air for a group shot of your wedding party and guests (via Long Tall Sally, our crane truck).  (Weather permitting.) 

* Planning Assistance:  We help you along the way.  After working though our planning worksheets and "Helpful Hints" lists, you'll meet with our Venue Coordinator to:
   -- budget your on-site time and create a venue-oriented Day-Of timeline,
   -- plan for your outside vendors' needs, 
   -- plan the best use of venue space and consider decorating options, and

   -- choose rustic props from our warehouse to use in your decor plan, especially for your centerpieces, and
   -- draft a written decorating plan.  (We'll type it up and send it to you.)

* On-site attendant during rehearsal and throughout the event.

* We don’t require that you use specific vendors (catering, florals, music, photography, etc).  Choose your own or we can recommend pros who’ve worked here before and provided an excellent service. 

* We only host one major event per weekend, so in many cases you have the option of scheduling some early set-up time on the same day as rehearsal.

* The barn is insulated and heated, perfect for off-season weddings.  For comfort during hot weather, we have excellent wind flow throughout the building, which formerly served as a drying barn.  Large overhead circulating fans draw the heat up and out in the summer or push it back down during the winter.   

* Included with the 12-hour package:  A personalized gift from Rustic Impressions, etched with your names and wedding date.

(For parties, dances, or other small-scale events that don't require this level of support, see our Simple Events page.)

Wedding & Major Event Hosting Rates
For WEDDINGS and RECEPTIONS we recommend the 12-hour package.  For most couples that allows enough time for rehearsal (on a different date), set-up & decorating, photos, the event itself, and clean-up.  However, if you NEED more than 12 (because of elaborate decorating plans, for example), we offer a really good rate on additional time.

(For CELEBRATIONS OF LIFE we recommend comparing the Major Event and Simple Event inclusions to see which better suits your needs. Please call Lisa if you need help sorting though it.)

Pandemic Update

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 50 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!
