No need to find a separate space for your rehearsal dinner, have it on the farm! We do not book back-to-back weddings which allows us to listen and focus only on YOUR wedding. Our wedding package takes the headache out of planning and coordinating delivery of rental tents, chairs, tables, and linen. The bridal suite doubles as overnight accommodations for yourself or out of town guests for both Friday and Saturday. You and your guests will have complete privacy for creating the wedding of your dreams.
Romance on the Farm
Courter Country Farm is the perfect location for your rustic, yet elegant, outdoor wedding. The sun reflecting off Barker Creek and the fresh air of the open field, create the perfect environment for your special day! The water, the trees, the fields beckon for your personal touches. Just up the hill from the main field, you and your guests can visit our alpacas, sheep, rabbits, chickens, ducks and adorable dwarf goats.
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. Both the bride and groom will be able to get ready in fully air-conditioned suites. The ladies have the upstairs of the farmhouse with full length mirrors. The gentlemen have full access to our saloon for a game of pool or TV to catch the game while they await the lovely ladies. 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 and easy travel for guests lodging in town.
Besides the natural sounds of the country side, both live and recorded music is allowable and encouraged. We provide speakers, you provide the DJ or band.
