Forest Weddings

Love that wedding couples find Spring Creek Ranch in so many unique ways. Thanks Adrien Craven for including us in your great write-up of preferred venues for a Washington State Forest wedding.

Jim & Andy

I should have known that these two butterflies circling each other, and the grounds all weekend were a harbinger of great things to come.  Because great things kept coming all weekend: weather, music, friends and drink abounded as friends and family gathered to celebrate a relationship that is already 27 years strong.

Jim and Andy’s marriage ceremony began with their daughter, Jessie and local Olympian (and community heroine) Laura McCabe serenading the guests in a flute, violin duet.  Tears poured freely as the conservatory trained flutist and violinist played on the front porch of the Ranch House.  The officiants exposed on meeting the two gentlemen during a bike trip in Finland decades ago and had many personal anecdotes, poems, and advice to share.

A sun drenched evening full of great food, tasty beverages, happy socializing and lots and lots of dancing ensued.  If you’ve ever wondered what a dance party full of ultra-marathoners, extreme skiers and bikers looks like I can happily report that the joy and energy was unparalleled and long lasting- just like the feted couple!
