Craven Farm

Mark and Judy Craven have beautiful farm grounds in the valley SE of Snohomish.  A genuine farm with lots of vintage decor and curiosities.  Wonderful ceremony sites on the property and buildings that are very nicely maintained.


Twin Willow Gardens

​Owner David and Jennette operate the Twin Willow Gardens east of Snohomish just a minute off of Highway 2.  They've got two wonderful locations: one in an open area by a pond, the other is their outdoor Cedar Chapel surrounded by trees.  Everything is beautifully landscaped, tons of parking, an outdoor bar, powered deejay kiosk and caterer's prep area.

Hidden Meadows

Just south of the Snohomish Airport on Springhetti Road, Hidden Meadows is well groomed,large reception and party space, bartender's counter, deejay amenities and a great gazebo for your ceremony and photographs.


SBL Rentals, operated by my wife Wendy, is a low overhead wedding and party supply rental business serving the budget-minded bride or party planner.  Originally Sweet Buffet Lady (for her signature candy buffets), SBL has linens, tableware and decor in her commercial space on the west side of Monroe.  Check out her website; you just might be able to afford more bling for your buck!.

Ashley Pederson is my go-to person for video production.  She has produced most of my videos, is an in-demand resource for wedding videography and other occasions.  Ashley is a true artist who works closely with her clients, not just to "get the right shots" but to capture what is important to you, to read the occasion and to craft a memorable finished product.

Chaplain Dale Weddings

Kate and Josh Gansneder are wonderful photographers and I love their work  There are a lot of photographers, and lots of good ones, but the Gansneders are the top of their game.  If your wedding is inside that perfect building, or outdoors in any of this state's gorgeous scenery, Kate and Josh will work hard to photographically "WOW" your memories.
