An Experience to Personalize
We know the real magic is the personality that you’ll bring in. We welcome all people and all traditions and all your novel wedding ideas. You’ll have freedom to choose any type of food vendors, supply your own choice of beverages, and decorate however you’d like. There is no curfew or other unnecessary restrictions.
Our goal is to provide you with a special place that feels like home, with plenty of time and freedom to celebrate the start of your marriage. That’s why – for six years and counting – we’ve been a home-base for weddings seeking a peaceful, easy, unhurried feeling.
If your wedding style includes blue skies, wide open spaces, birds singing, blankets of stars, cozy fireplaces, and wood and nature all around you—then Monarch Valley is for you.

Availability & Price Options
We are fully booked for our 2023 season. We will resume touring for 2024 weddings in July of 2023.
Throughout your rental, you’ll have access to our lawns with various ceremony location options; our grounds and parking lots; our Event Barn and Lodge; additional rooms for your rehearsal dinner and guest overflow; and full access to our inventory of chairs, tables, decor, & more. Plus lots of little details like managing garbage, giving cart rides to guests in need, and constantly working to make things pretty, convenient, and homey. That’s all included in the price.
Peaceful & Unhurried
Wedding rentals are for the entire weekend—so you can decorate leisurely, keep the party going, sleep in, and not worry about taking down decorations (or anything like that) at the end of the night.
We are a family-run venue. We’ve put nearly 30 years into our property and into restoring our 1920’s barns into a place of beauty and celebration. Our priority is to make you feel at home and supported.
Our Lodge has 5 bedrooms—each bedroom has two beds and a full, private bathroom. We also offer RV parking.
Our Event Barn
Our Event Barn is a three-season pavilion where your reception, dinner, and dance will take place. The max seated-at-one-time capacity is 250 guests (though we’ve hosted plenty of weddings in the 300 range as well). 180-230 guests is the most comfortable guest range at Monarch Valley.
Most couples choose to have their wedding ceremony outside. We have lots of options so you can choose a location and walking path that suits you. We also have an indoor backup plan.
What’s Not Included
Monarch Valley does not provide tablecloths, food, or beverages. But we have very few restrictions so you can personalize your schedule, decor, food, and beverages to your taste.
