Weddings on the Farm
Courter Country Farm is the perfect location for your Pacific Northwest outdoor wedding. The sun reflecting off Barker Creek and the fragrances of the farm flowers, create the perfect surroundings for your special day! Majestic trees are perfect for creating stunning wedding photos. Following your ceremony, you and your guests can visit our alpacas, bunnies, chickens, ducks and adorable little goats. Worried about social distancing and challenging family dynamics? With 20 acres, there is lots of space for everyone to spread out following the ceremony.
Summer weddings are beautiful with all the flowers and trees in bloom. However, no one wants to have their day spoiled by the heat of the day. There are two separate areas for getting ready, a lovely turn of the century homestead and our saloon complete with a pool table. If you plan your wedding in the early evening, lovely alder trees will provide shade for your guests throughout the celebration.
Twenty wooded acres at the end of the dirt road provide plenty of privacy yet, we are only 5 minutes to town for those last-minute needs.
We grow our own cut-flowers for weddings. We are pleased to offer our seasonal flowers and greenery for your wedding. Visit the farm early the week of your wedding and pick-out your favorite flowers. This option is perfect if you flexible in your color scheme and love the idea of farm fresh florals.
Besides the natural sounds of the countryside, both live and recorded music is allowable and encouraged. We provide speakers, you provide the DJ or band. Please note limited power is available for high power equipment.
