Give me a brief overview of this venue, and include all of its benefits and unique features.
Pine River Ranch is a 22 acre wedding venue in Leavenworth, WA. We are nestled between mountain ranges, meadows, rivers and fields in a county oasis. Our lush manicured lawns back dropped by the Cascade Mountains are the perfect place to say "I Do." After your ceremony couples retreat to the 1944 dairy barn for their reception where all the amenities are included from tables, linens and chairs to silverware, dishes and stemware. Once the festivities are over the wedding party and guests can retreat to our beautiful bed and breakfast with 6 luxurious cabin suites inspired by the Pacific Northwest. Each suite is complete with 2 person Jacuzzi spa, river rock fireplace and hand crafted pine log beds.

What are the different ways the venue can be set up? We can set up your wedding however your heart desires! Most of our couples choose to get married in front of the arbor and have the reception in the barn but it's your day and you can get married wherever you want! We have had cocktail hour as well as rehearsal dinners outside on the lawn and also have winter ceremonies in the barn. One of my favorites was a winter wedding where the bride, groom and pastor were on outside on the deck and the guests were seated inside the barn.

How many hours does the rental fee cover? A single day wedding package gives you exclusive use of the grounds from 3pm the day of your wedding until 11 am the next morning. A 2 day wedding package gives you the grounds from 3 pm the day before your wedding until 11 am the next morning.

Is there an in-house caterer? Can couples bring in any caterer? We allow outside catering of your choice and have had everything from potluck BBQ's to 4 course meals! We do not have an in house caterer but have a few outstanding local caterers we can recommend.

What kind of rental items/equipment do you provide or offer? Is there a dance floor available? What about other items like a piano, maybe for a band to use? Everything is included in your package when you get married at Pine River Ranch, we do not unexpectedly tack on additional expenses! You will arrive to find the venue completely set up exactly the way you asked us to with tables, chairs, linens and dishes as well as the ceremony seating set up at the location of your choice. You have access to our sound system for speeches and ipod weddings or are welcome to bring in your own equipment, or your own band! The plates, flatware, stemware, linens, napkins, chairs, tables, right on down to the salt and pepper shakers are here for your use, and our staff will pick it all up afterwards. On your big day we don't want you, or your family having to deal with dishes! The only "fee" you will see is you do have to have a state certified bartender (Washington state law, so there's no way around it) but we can provide one at an additional expense. If you do wish to have a bar we will have one set up for you.  

How late can weddings play music? The music has to be off by 10 pm due to county ordinances, we normally give you a few warnings so 10 won't come as a shocker!
