The Barn on Wild Rose Prairie

The Barn on Wild Rose Prairie is a farm style wedding venue north of Spokane in the Deer park area. This venue was a working dairy farm that has transitioned into one of Spokane’s most charming outdoor wedding and event venues. But I will leave the bulk of their story to owners Chris and Aubrey.

About the Barn on Wild Rose Prairie

The first wedding held at the barn was a for a sibling in the summer of 2012. A year later, Chris and Aubrey did the same and with that, opened the venue. That said, the venue is truly a love story and one that Chris, Aubrey and their family have graciously extended the invitation to others.

While touring the facility, you could feel the excitement bursting out of Chris. He was incredibly passionate about the place that he and his family have created. Aubrey even had to break in and say – Chris, let them talk too! Haha Chris shared stories of his favorite weddings and how the various parties have utilized the spaces to make their own special days full of memories.

He also shared the more practical issues of operating a venue which they have resolved. Things like protection from the heat of the sun, rain, wind and the cold which can catch the inland northwest by surprise at times- like it did in the fall of 2019 with bitter cold and snow storms on Spokane counties last venue operating day for the year.

My experience at The Barn on Wild Rose Prairie

Last summer I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding at the barn. The wedding was a simple celebration of love with close family and friends. There were yard games, a deliciously smoky barbecue and a conga line that stretched way beyond the available dance floor. Wedding details were spot on for their modern rustic barn style wedding. The added details were then complimented by the beautifully laid out and landscaped facility. As a photographer, I appreciated all the photo locations available. The property contains several barns, a silo, an old truck, beautiful territorial views, fields, and various landscaping elements. The wedding, I photographed even had ciders! And let me tell you, a wedding that offers ciders to the guests is pretty awesome in my books.

Chris and his wife maintain a venue built on the value of family and celebration. As such, Chris made sure the venue operated smoothly for everyone.
