Crooked River Weddings FAQ


How does catering work?

Couple brings in their own vendors (catering) but we do have a preferred vendors list we provide to the couple of vendors that have been to our venue.


How do decorations work?

We have some decorations on site that the couple is welcome to use at no extra charge, they bring in any other decorations they choose to have.


What if it rains?

We have a secondary ceremony site for rain that is covered but still has the woods/river views for the backdrop.


We as a family are very “hands on” throughout the weekend making sure everything runs smoothly and is taken care of for the couple. Also having the venue for 3 days allows them the opportunity to enjoy their wedding day and not feel rushed as setup/tear down does not occur on the actual wedding day. We want the couple and their guests to have the most magical day and experience at our venue and do our very best to make sure that happens! - Crooked River Weddings

Castle Farms FAQ


How does catering work?

Couples can choose which catering company fits their style and budget. Castle Farms provides an excellent list of caterers as a recommendation, but couples have the ultimate decision. The only requirement is that the caterer is licensed and insured.


How do decorations work?

Each ceremony and reception space at Castle Farms is beautiful with no additional décor which allows each couple to truly use as little or as much décor as they envision while still having a gorgeous wedding. Couples are able to either bring in their own items or hire vendors to bring in decorations. Often we see a combination of couples hiring vendors to help with specific décor and also bringing in specific pieces of their own. Castle Farms provides the tables, white chairs, and white floor length linens to provide the perfect blank slate to add additional decorations to. For more specifics about decorating times and cleanup procedures feel free to reach out to a member of Castle Farms’ team.


What is the rain plan?

When a couple reserves a ceremony with Castle Farms we do guarantee a back up sheltered location at no additional cost. The exact location will depend on the couples individual reservation and our overall schedule.
