One of the best parts about Spokane is just how beautiful it is. Regardless of the season, its incredible vistas, lush forests, and dynamic hills are practically magical. Its beauty, of course, makes it an incredible destination for weddings for locals and visitors alike. Once you’ve decided to take advantage of Spokane’s natural aesthetic, the challenge becomes finding the right fit for your venue. The Ridge at Greenbluff is an ideal, magical location for a wedding. Their expansive packages make planning a wedding with their close-knit team a pleasure.
The Ridge at Greenbluff is a family-owned farm with ten acres of land that offer expansive gardens, young apple orchards, and breathtaking views. The Jackson family settled in Greenbluff, about 20 minutes north of Spokane, a few years ago while searching for a more rural place to spread out and raise their family. Their investment in their local agriculture community only contributes to the special pride they take in their property and the care with which they attend to each wedding and event. In fact, they limit the number of weddings they book each season. This offers a more personalized experience to each of their couples.
They host weddings from mid-May through October every year. Their calendar books quickly; they are already booking for the 2024 season!
As a whole, The Ridge at Greenbluff can accommodate 150 guests for a wedding. Couples that book them for their wedding have 10 hours of event time on the property on the day of the wedding and one hour of rehearsal time on the Thursday or Friday before the event.
Their lawn overlooks the valley, providing an incredible backdrop for couples to exchange vows in front of families and friends. They provide chairs for your guests, as well as 60 white umbrellas to protect from sprinkles or sun. Clients can also choose from three arbors (traditional wooden, hexagon, or a weathered-wood cross) to help customize your ceremony.
The 1800 square foot covered pavilion is the ideal spot for a celebration, surrounded by natural boulders and trees and overlooking the stunning valley below. Curtains separate the reception area from the ceremony so it stays hidden away until you are ready for the party to start. Directly outside the covered pavilion is a large patio surrounded by boulders and string lights, the perfect spot for extra tables or dancing under the stars. The outdoor lounge is also just outside the pavilion. Its luxury red velvet couch and additional seating make it the perfect spot to catch your breath and rest or take a few extra photos!
There are two private areas for bridal parties to get ready the day of the wedding; the Dressing Suite has plenty of seating, mirrors, and covered outdoor space. So you can sit and enjoy the view. The Private Cottage has some of the best views of the valley and a table and chairs outside so you can sit peacefully and enjoy refreshments as you prepare for the day.
There is no shortage of incredible locations for your wedding photos at The Ridge at Greenbluff. Whether perched amongst their rocky, mountainous boulders with a backdrop of lush green foliage or capturing a dramatic sunset shot atop a peak of the property, your portraits will undoubtedly be stunning.
The Ridge is surrounded by incredible valley views that will make you feel (and look) like you’re on top of the world. Later in the season, the trees begin to turn a spectrum of rich oranges, reds, and yellows for the perfect autumnal backdrop.
Elegant red velvet sofas and other luxurious touches provide plenty of opportunities for glamor shots. The warm wood and flowing curtains on the Pavillion add dynamic warmth to wedding photos.
And, of course, their colorful send-offs with star lights, ribbons, or fiber optic light wands! Naturally, these make for a fun and photogenic exit at the end of the night.
The Ridge at Greenbluff offers two wedding packages: The Pampered Wedding Package and the All-Inclusive Wedding Package.
Both include plenty of perks, including wedding planning assistance to help you make the most of the venue on your special day. Be it pricing, vendors, timeline, and decor, you will have someone to help you feel confident in your decisions. The Ridge also provides day-of wedding coordination. Their team handles everything from your vendors to your guests.
The Ridge also put together a list of their trusted vendors to curate your perfect wedding. Everyone on the list is reliable and has worked with The Ridge at Greenbluff before. So you can rest easy knowing the little uncertainties won’t cause any issues.
One of the best parts about having your wedding at The Ridge is their extensive inventory of decor. Whether you want your wedding to feel classic, rustic, elegant, or anything else, they have a wide range of decorative elements to help you customize your wedding to be entirely unique for your taste. They also provide tables and chairs, table linens, and table runners to set the scene. Centerpieces coordinating with your theme are also provided, as are fresh flowers and greenery from the property (when available.) If couples bring in additional flowers, they will happily be incorporated into the table decor!
There are also plenty of other perks! Like yard games, a flashy send-off, and clean-up at the end of the night.
Their All-Inclusive Wedding package includes everything above, but they save you the time and trouble of booking extra vendors. Check out their website for even more perks and details about each package!
