Resting at the base of the Blue Mountains, nestled among the valley’s most beautiful wheat fields and popular vineyards, we are just five miles from the quaint and historic downtown area of Walla Walla. Whether you’re looking for the perfect backdrop for your wedding, a corporate or private celebration, anniversary, graduation, or Quinceanera we have you covered. 

At the heart of Creekstone, our barn is the perfect blank canvas for whatever theme you desire. Rustic but modern, Luxe meets the countryside. At Creekstone we can entertain up to 250 guests in our barn. Stay dry in the spring, shaded in the summer. Picturesque Titus Creek, our pond, and almost 4 acres of natural but manicured gardens provide a grand estate feel for whatever your event. You have to check out “The Venue” below.

Call us, email, or fill out the “Interested?” form at the bottom. No matter how you choose to reach out, we can’t wait to meet you and give you a tour of our venue. (Seriously, it’s so great. Don’t wait!)

The Venue

Let’s Take a Look at This Place!

Searching for Washington Barn Weddings near me, Walla2 wedding venues, indoor/ outdoor celebration venues, somebody help me find the right place! Look no further friend, we feel ya, and we got you covered. We think once you see Creekstone, you’ll probably fall in love all over again. 

If it’s a wedding you have planned, start your day in our bridal suite with it’s private ensuite bathroom, make up & dressing room, complete with a champagne fridge. The groom and the rest of the gents have their own space as well, lest you think we forgot about the guys. A generous leather couch, foosball table, and rustic vibe is a great way to wait it out until you get to see your bride for the very first time. 

Take a quick walk to the idyllic bridges spanning our pond and Titus Creek for your date with the paparazzi before your ceremony. There are nearly four acres of natural but manicured gardens and lawn. Hang out in the lawn with your favorite beverage while you play yard games. Let the kids roam on over to the sand box and play area (hint…there’s treasure in these sands).

When it’s time for the “I Do’s” bring yourself to our amazingly beautiful, pergola covered, ceremony site. Under the pergola you’ll stay comfortable and shaded all within earshot of the actual Mill Creek as well as our own waterfalls. We provide a portable sound system here for ceremonial use. 

The BARN! Let the celebration begin. At 50’x 70’, this fully ADA compliant, barn is huge! Built in the prairie style, with 20-foot-wide sliding barn doors on all four sides, this place has charm for days. Twinkle lights in the rafters, café lighting in and out and gigantic wrought iron chandeliers provide the ambiance under the rustic but modern exposed rafters. With enough space to fit 200+ guests easily, you’ll have room for your reception, private party, school or corporate event. Even at that, you’ll still have room for a dance area, buffet serving under the generous eaves outside, a mobile bar, DJ stand and desert area! The barn comes with a fully integrated and newly designed sound system as well as a 65” TV for whatever digital media you might want to showcase. And hey, no carnival porta potties here. For most events we provide a luxury restroom trailer with enough class to impress even the in-laws. 

At Creekside, no matter what type of event you’re hosting, we truly believe you know what you want and what will work best for you. As such, we have no requirement on who you choose to use as your food and drink provider. Taco bar? Sweet. Sit Down formal dinner? Awesome! You choose. We will work diligently with your choice to try to give you the best result possible. If you’re looking for suggestions, we’ve been doing this a while, so we have some great referrals Food trucks, photographers, planners, florists, we have some great friends in the business. So if you’re stuck and can’t decide let us give you a hint or two. No pressure, it’s Your day. 

Speaking of friends, we have new VRBO neighbors. Let us give you contact information for those properties. Both are amazing. Both are within a one minute walk of the venue and both sleep plenty. One has a vineyard view, the other a pool. If your family or friends are needed close by, our VRBO friends have your answer. 

One last thing, we can park roughly 95 vehicles on-site. For those with mobility issues or maybe super high heels, we have two chauffeured golf carts that can whisk you from our onsite parking area, to the

 barn and back again at the end of the event. Remember, please drink responsibly. We love all our guests so find your designated driver on your way out.

Our Very Own Love Story

Jeff and Vanissa Bender met and knew immediately they’d found “The One.” Just two weeks after meeting, they traveled to Disneyland and just a week after that, Jeff shocked both their friends and family when he asked for Vanissa’s hand. Less than six months later, the knot was tied and a lifelong love story began. 

Married now for nearly 25 years, with 3 kids, two dogs, and a grouchy old cat, they worked hard at their careers but always dreamed of a little patch of land where they could dig in the dirt and be creative. A place where they could ride a quad to the neighbor’s house for a glass of wine and where the roar of traffic was nothing but a memory. Most of all, they wanted to be with friends and to be there for people on “the best day of their lives.” 

Call it chance, or more likely, divine intervention, Jeff and Vanissa met Russ and Leslie Kroum, the original owners and creators of Creek Stone Gardens. From day one, a lasting friendship was formed and new lives started for all of us as we took over from the Kroums. The Kroums had spent nearly 15 years building and creating what Creekstone Gardens has become. 

Jeff, Vanissa, and the whole family are so excited to continue all the best parts of Creekstone Gardens as well as adding more love and creative details to make your event everything you hoped it would be.

This was an amazing place to bring our family and friends to celebrate! Jeff and Vanissa were fantastic to work with and made the whole process easy!

We are so happy and blessed to have had our event at Creekstone. From the first moment of our venue tour Jeff & Vanissa made us feel so welcome. Throughout all the planning and all the way to the big day, the Creekstone staff were right there, every step of way, every single day. The grounds are so beautiful and they did their best to think of everything. The modern touches in the barn, the on-site sound system and giant flat screen TV, were such nice touches and really added value.
