About Us

Have you ever been to a themed wedding? If you came to our wedding 10 years ago, you have. After a 12-hour long proposal (really! a long story), we were married shortly thereafter in a pirate-themed extravaganza! Lots of things have changed since then, and we added two kids to our pack. In December 2016, the stars aligned and through some misfortune-turned-good fortune, we moved into our dream home along the Pilchuck River in Granite Falls, WA.

Immediately, we knew this place was different– the beauty and peace of the setting seem destined to be shared with others.

So, we invited women to come stay at our retreat, enjoying gourmet meals, massages by the river, and endless meditative minutes spent with feet in the water.

But we wanted more.

James and Jamie pondered: how can we share the magic of this riverside oasis with others, in a way that would feel connective and fulfilling?

And…. the wedding venue was born!

Finally, River Valley Oasis was able to become what it always wanted to be: an enchanting, welcoming space that beckons others to celebrate and enjoy the beauty around them.

We pour our passion into everything we create at the Oasis. 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.

This is the new entrance and bridal-suite courtyard James built this spring; come check it out now that’s it’s all finished!!

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