About Us

River Valley Oasis Family

 

Hi! We are Jamie (she/her) and James (he/him) – owners of River Valley Oasis. We have been married for 12 years and have two beautiful and busy children. In December 2016, the stars aligned and through some misfortune-turned-good, we moved into our dream home along the Pilchuck River in Granite Falls, WA.

We immediately knew this place was different, and the beauty of the property seemed destined to be shared with others. We started out as a retreat for women to come enjoy gourmet meals, massages by the river, and endless meditative minutes spent with feet in the water. It was so wonderful providing this peace for women in Snohomish County and the surrounding Seattle area, but we wanted to do more with the space.

We thought about how we could share the magic of our riverside oasis with as many people as possible, but still keep in line with helping people stay connected with nature and feeling fulfilled by it. Alas, the wedding venue was born! River Valley Oasis was able to finally become what it always wanted to be – an enchanting, welcoming space that beckons others to celebrate and enjoy the beauty around them.

When we rebranded our space as a wedding venue we truly wanted to create a place that you, your family and loved ones can feel comfortable and welcome at. We celebrate love in all forms and invite them to share their love of nature with us. We are an ally for the LGBTQIA+ community and are proudly LGBTQIA+ inclusive certified. We have ready rooms instead of bridal and groom suites that are gender neutral, and our blank canvas venue allows for you to truly create something unique to your love.

We pour our passion into everything we create at the oasis and a quick walkthrough at our wedding venue will show that. We use locally-sourced cedar to build fencing, pergolas and enclosures. Native moss and ferns adorn the forest, and the river flows freely along 300 feet of venue footage, allowing each guest to have a dynamite view and experience.

 

Come celebrate your unique love at our venue. Your woodland wedding awaits!

 

 

2023 Updates

Everything you need for your party is now included with your rental at River Valley Oasis! Tables and chairs for a 130 guest capacity are available for use with your venue rental. Tables are 60 inch rounds (seating up to 8 guests per table). Chairs are white, resin folding chairs with seat cushions. They stand up to outdoor weather and have a high weight capacity for ease of use for all guests! We also include your buffet, head, sign in, and gift tables!

2022 Updates

Our bathrooms are done! Featuring four cedar cabins showing modern amenities in our rustic theme. All bathrooms are touchless and beautiful. One bathroom is wheelchair-accessible featuring a ramp, grab bars, lowered sink/mirror, and a sliding barn door.

The tent is now on us! We now own a gorgeous, steel-frame 2,000 square foot tent that covers the entire reception dining area. The tent is 40 feet x 50 feet, and comes pre-lit with our signature Edison-bulb lighting ready to go!

2021 Updates

During lock-down, we were busy! We installed a concrete dance floor, added brand-new sod, completed a stunning, stone pathway down the middle of our ceremony area, and finished installing a 2,000 square foot hard floor under the reception area. 

These changes allow for better functionality and stunning photos, all while paying homage to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Also, just because we installed a dance floor doesn’t mean you can’t kick off your shoes and dance in the grass anyway! Having fun in nature is strongly encouraged at the oasis!

We are constantly improving our venue and hope you will love the changes as much as we do!

 

 

 

We look forward to helping you plan your happily ever after at the most beautiful and relaxing wedding venue in Snohomish County. We strive to create a personalized experience for each and every person we meet, so please share your dreams with us and let’s create the most magical event for you!
