In the Northwest, we’re lucky to live in a region with so much natural beauty— it makes the perfect backdrop for outdoor weddings and events.
And after serving hundreds of customers with their restroom needs from the Canadian border to the California border, we have some Northwest venues we’re quite fond of. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorites.
The Red Barn Farm, Redmond, Washington
One of several working farms that host events in the region, The Red Barn Farm is our favorite. Founded more than 100 years ago by Gary Cooper’s uncle (yep, small world), it was a working dairy until the 1960s, when they changed to raising beef cattle.
Current projects include restoration of a 100-year-old heritage apple orchard and pursuit of organic certification for the entire farming operation.
The property includes a gambrel-roofed hay barn built in 1925, followed by a grain silo and milk barn built in 1953. The barn was recently restored as it was in a state of eminent collapse.

Vista Hills Vineyard, Dayton, Oregon
This 42-acre, LIVE certified sustainable vineyard sits in the Dundee Hills Wine Country in Dayton, Ore. The property is located between Domaine Serene to the east and the Willamette Valley to the west, thirty-five miles southwest of Portland. This is some of the most sought-after viticulture terrain in the region.
And with ten years experience as a full-service event venue, they’re ready to handle anyone’s “big day”.

Mt. Hood Organic Farms, Mt. Hood, Oregon
Another working farm that excels at hosting events is Mt. Hood Organic Farms. Their roots go back to 1904, but the present owners started the transition to fully organic in 1981, receiving the area’s first official certification in 1989.
Today they produce 87 varieties of apples, pears, and quince. Recently they have teamed with a cidermaker to expand their offerings into hard cider.
The farm insists that clients work with their ‘preferred’ event team including Cultivate Catering with Ginger Power and day-of-event management by Cassandra Cass Coordinating.

Bloedel Reserve, Bainbridge Island, Washington
You won’t find a venue with more variety and beauty than the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island. The property was a private home for thirty years before being donated to the community in 1980s as a community garden.
It opened in 1988 as a 150 acre public garden and nature preserve.
Today the reserve hosts a wide variety of community and private events, including a creative residency program for artists. More than 30 artists from a variety of disciplines have taken advantage of the unique opportunity.
