WEDDINGS

A Countryside Venue for Weddings and Events

From the first weekend of June to the last weekend in September

R-Time Ranch blends a unique working ranch with countryside charm for your memorable events.

Providing an extraordinary location with exemplary services, privately owned R-Time Ranch remains committed to serve you as the area's finest venue for weddings, corporate events, reunions, parties and more.

Destination R-Time Ranch for Weddings and Events

Located along the pristine Skookumchuck River, R-Time Ranch weaves a rustic, countryside atmosphere into your main outdoor wedding theme of the day.

 

The landscape on six acres of grassy fields features upper and lower pastures with a foothill mountain backdrop. This venue inspires a magical experience for your guests, highlighting the romance of marriage.

 

R-Time Ranch is a working ranch, with St. Croix Sheep, unique miniature silky fainting goats and Australian Shepherd dogs, separately pastured away from the wedding venue.

 

Before the big event, guests can partake in summer experiences like croquet and horseshoes, relax in a lawn swing on the grass, or pet the ranch's unique animals.

 

Evening sensations of dancing the night away to nostalgic DJ sounds under party lights complement the ranch's celebration vibe.

The Amazing Bridal House

With four bedrooms, three of which have adjoining bathrooms, the roomy Bridal House provides convenient, comfortable overnight accommodations for family and friends to have a good time.

 

The fourth bedroom has been converted into a game room for kids and grownups to revel in, plus pinball machines, arcade games and a seated area for serious gamers.

 

Add the entertainment center with two screens for your best Karoke and Guitar Hero performances and games on PlayStation, Xbox and Wii — just bring your game discs. At night the room's two daybeds become sleepers.

 

The main level provides an open concept to let light pour in from the large number of windows, not to mention the grand, stone fireplace and granite counters with newer stainless appliances in the country kitchen.

Let's Give the Wedding Party a Dry Run

Here's a what-if scenario using the Bridal House for a weekend wedding.

 

Friday: A wedding family and participants check into the bridal house in the afternoon with a wedding rehearsal. Don't be late, now, because here's one of the best parts: From the commercial on-site kitchen, the on-site chef prepares a catered rehearsal dinner for the wedding party. Yum!

 

Saturday: After rise-and-shine in the morning, a bacon-filled-in-the-air country breakfast is served, hot and ready, prepared by that same great on-site chef. In the early afternoon, the bride and her attendants prepare for nuptials in the bridal house master bedroom (or wherever it's convenient in this big house). The photographer arrives, making sure no one blinks when the shutter clicks. The wedding ceremony commences on Saturday afternoon or evening, followed by a reception, dinner, barn-style dance and cake cutting.

 

Later Saturday: The couple of the day make their getaway after the reception, while family and friends have the option of staying overnight in the bridal house. Take advantage of being away in the countryside!

 

Sunday Morning: A final curtain call, when that amazing chef prepares another up-and-at-em morning breakfast. One last deep breath of fresh country air and the family and friends check out at noon.

 

Notes: Get the picture in the above example? Too much, too little? Well, the bridial house arrangement has many options available and is based on your days needed and, of course, your wedding budget.
