For future Bride & Grooms that are thinking about a 2011 wedding, now is the time to schedule your “Special Day“. Our Lavender farm is a scenic, romantic setting for small intimate weddings. We have stunning views of both Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. We also have a beautiful restored ‘Ole Barn, for receptions, private dinner parties, and other events, with gorgeous views of the Hood River Valley, and Mt. Adams in the distance. The peak of our lavender season is June-July, continuing through September. There are black out dates, so we encourage folks to reserve “Your Day” soon. We love to host and celebrate such a big day! Who knew that our passion would lead to a place where others wish to honor each other and exchange their vows? Such fun!
We had a wedding at our farm a few days ago, there was much preparation for this beautiful Day! We deadheaded flower tops, pruned lavender, and watered intensely. Luckily for me, there is an Awesome lady right across the street, that assists me in times like this. She does lots of the weeding and deadheading, while I set out the sprinklers, watering the lawn. The Party Rental business came to set up the tents for the reception areas. I cleared off a few tables in the retail cottage, for use as “Bridle Dressing Room”. I dressed up a window with a special Cafe’ Curtain, made from an embroidered table runner with a Bride standing under an arbur, and two vintage kitchen linens that belonged to my Grandmother Lucille. The cottage was ready for the Bride, and filled with the calming aroma of Lavender to sooth her emotions…What a beautiful Wedding Celebration!!! Best wishes to a wonderful future for them!!
