Introducing Brightside Vintage Farm in Ellensburg, WA
A Truly Romantic, Vintage-Meets-Elegant Wedding Venue
We are so in love with this venue, and we think you will be too. If you're wondering why their name has the word "Brightside" in it... it is because the farm is located in Kittitas Valley, a valley known for abundant sunshine. Their location offers 70% fewer cloudy days than the Greater Seattle area... perfect for an outdoor wedding if you live in Washington!
We Like to Describe this Venue As:
Vintage, Elegant, Romantic, Dreamy, Lush, Sunny, Peaceful, Private
Type of Venue
Farm/Garden/Orchard - also known as an “Elegant Tented Venue”
Are you looking for something "different?" If so, get ready to fall head over heels for this beautiful, one-of-a-kind venue. In our eyes, this is such a unique outdoor venue, we just can't get enough of them! Brightside Vintage Farm is located on the ‘Brightside of the Cascade Mountains’ just outside of Ellensburg WA, where there are 70% more sunny days than the ‘wet side.’
This Ellensburg venue houses a historic homestead in an outdoor garden and orchard setting, with a permanent tent as an elegant ‘Great Gatsby Style’ feature.
The vibe here is “Vintage meets Elegant” with a whimsical, romantic storybook feel. It's truly a special and extraordinary place.
As you know, here at Blissful Blue Jays we are always saying to make sure the staff you're going to be working with at the venue you choose are exceptional. Staff can make or break a venue.

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers!
How does catering work?
We do not provide catering, we vendor out catering.
How do decorations work?
We are proud to offer our private collection of antique décor and decorations to help Brides and Grooms simplify the wedding prep process. We have a large collection for Brides and Grooms to choose and borrow for the day. We ask that all borrow items are returned after the celebration to a designated place in the reception tent. We set up furniture, we do not set up decorations but give our clients access to our inventory.
What is the rain plan?
With the very rare amount that it rains in our warm & sunny Central Washington location, we are prepared with our large & elegant party tent to support the entire ceremony and celebration inside, in case of rain. Guest comfort and providing an exceptional client experience is our priority.
Note from the Owner & General Manager
“As the owner and founder of Brightside Vintage Farm, I never actually envisioned embarking on this journey. After a few years of experiencing this land’s abundance of scenery — where green pastoral land stretches to meet the picturesque mountains — I realized that there is something very special here. There is a still, calm presence that speaks through the lush setting that is warm and bathed in sunshine. There is also a peace that touches the soul and tangibly dwells here. It wasn’t until years later that I was given a vision of how to offer my farm, to allow it to bless others. Thus, the journey truly began down this road ... a road I never imagined!” ~ Heidi Bright, Owner & Co-Founder of Brightside Vintage Farm
“Brightside Vintage Farm is more than a wedding venue. This place is where lives are positively impacted and community is created. When I was given the opportunity to be apart of launching this venue, I could not pass it up. Being able to help brides and grooms make their dreams come true here at the farm is more rewarding than I ever knew. I have come to realize that this is my current calling and everything about this business is my passion. It is my joy to share this incredible farm and venue with all that get to walk these grounds. What God has given to us, it is our joy to give to others.” - Joe Done: GM and Co-Founder at Brightside Vintage Farm

This is a sponsored post and I was compensated a small fee for my time to create this feature, as this is a means for me to earn an income. However, I hand selected this venue to feature and partner up with, I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only work with amazing companies and brands I have researched, love and support. I am just a blogger and am not responsible for your personal experience with any featured venues. These are simply just suggestions for you while making your own decision!
