Describe Space:  Your wedding day should be the most memorable day of your lives, and the days and interactions with your vendor team leading up to that day shouldn’t feel like a business transaction. At Haue Valley, we have lots of passions. We didn’t intend to get into the venue business. It happened when several sweet couples found our farm, fell in love, and persuaded us to open our private estate for their wedding day. We quickly learned that these couples had become part of our family, and it was an experience we enjoyed so much we hoped to do it again. From the soaring ceiling, beautiful wood beams cut from cedar on our family farm, the romance of a fire in our stone fireplace, and the view from the patio of the 246 acre farm, every decision we’ve made has been with you in mind. We are so blessed that so many couples have allowed us to play a small part in their big day. We hope to have the opportunity to play a small part in yours as well.
