Packages & Rates

In order to ensure we are offering the absolute BEST possible service to you, we have decided we cannot offer the normal 8-10 hour block; we only book 3 day blocks. We have 5 different ceremony sites, the entire farmhouse, several outbuildings and 10 acres worth of area that has to be deep cleaned following each event. Our standards are high and we need time to ensure we can meet those for each party. With these considerations, we offer a 3 day package; up to an entire week! Included in your package is a turn key approximately 4000 sq. ft Farmhouse with 3 bedrooms, plus a loft area with another bed, 2 full baths, living, dining, office, coffee nook, Bridal Quarters, etc; as well as the Groom's Cabin which hosts a full-size bed and full bathroom; 8 RV camping sites with electrical hook-ups; unlimited camp sites for tents and RVs without hook-ups; the dance floor; inside the barn with ample seating upstairs and downstairs acting as a ceremony/reception area, as well as a catering area; a food/flower prep area; and a separate bar area. All of this nestled in the woods surrounded by cedar trees, a year round creek that wanders through out the property, and several hundred feet of river frontage on Pend Oreille River. The fire pit is also available permitting the county burn ban allows it.

Deposits & Payments

You can reserve your special day by paying a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 to hold your date. The deposit payment is due at the time of signing the contract, your date will not be saved until BOTH the contract and deposit are received. This amount will be applied toward your total balance of the venue rental. The remaining balance can be made in payments spread out evenly over the course of the remaining time prior to the wedding. The final payment is to be paid 180 days prior to the wedding taking place. Because cancellations made for less than 6 months are nearly impossible to rebook so at that point the entire amount is non-refundable. Prior to the 180 day period, any amount paid prior to this (minus the deposit) will be refunded in full IF the dates can be rebooked at the same rates. There is a $1000 damage/cleaning deposit due 2 weeks prior to the event day. This is in addition to the cost, and is 100% refundable. Believe me, we WANT to give you back your full damage/cleaning deposit! It is extremely rare that we do not return the full amount.
A $1000 damage deposit will be added, in addition, to the original cost of the wedding package. This will be refunded within 14 days after the wedding, providing no damage occurs or items are missing. We have only ever kept one deposit. We WANT to be able to return the deposit and not have damage or extra work to do! Our goal is to be able to refund the full damage deposit to you.

Alcohol & Catering

Another perk at Rustic River Wedding & Venue is that we let you bring in your own alcohol and food. We do require you purchase a banquet license online. The cost is only $10/day you are serving the public. However, we do highly recommend hiring out both catering and bartending to allow family and friends to be able to enjoy the day as well. We do not have a liquor license, thus NO hard alcohol is allowed on the premises.
