My now husband and I had picked a venue for our wedding, and then the venue unfortunately fell through. My mom was searching for us and found Weddings Down by the Pond. Upon arrival I knew it was the one. I even asked them if I could live there, it’s my dream place :). Emily and her Father were so accommodating, from our first meeting to the end of our wedding. They helped us so much and made it so perfect for us. The benches, logs, tables, chairs, lights and cake area were all provided for us. Such a blessing. We even had a photo opp with a bench that fit perfect in between. They are such nice people and I would get married there again and again. I highly recommend them. The venue is absolutely beautiful and needs hardly anything to make it your own. If you’re dreaming of a fairytale wedding or classic outdoor wedding this is you place. The bridal suite is on site and so very cute. Tons of places to have your ceremony or reception.
All the wood and everything you see if hand crafted by them. They’re AMAZING. Planning to have our one year or ten year celebration there.
This venue is a hidden gem. If you are looking for an outdoor party venue full of natural beauty and with easy access off of I5 this is it. The grounds are well maintained by the family who have also used the timber off the property to build benches, tables, a bar, etc. which adds to the charming natural atmosphere. We had over 100 hundred guests at our daughter's wedding party and there was plenty of room to walk around, play games, dance, eat drink and be merry. This was at the end of July this year when the weather was crazy hot , but due to all the trees on the property it remained cool. The owners are wonderful to work with and very quick to respond. We would definitely ask to rent this beautiful venue again.
Down by the pond was our life saver of a wedding venue. What I thought was my dream venue went up for sale before our wedding date and we had to go and find another just a few months away before we said our I do's. Talk about stress!!
Then we found a jewel tucked away in Battleground, Down by the pond not only had our date but also gave us several options as to how to host our ceremony. As avid outdoor lovers we chose a place tucked amongst their trees. It was beyond magical. Emily and her folks all worked so hard to make sure everything was just perfect and ready to go. They had just the perfect dance floor, a gorgeous head table and so many little details. We got married in August and they even had a water mister!! Definitely came in handy that day.!
The lost cause bar had everything as well (minus the actual drinks of course) that we needed as well to keep all of our guest hydrated. The most beautiful set up for a cake table. Fire tables, cocktail tables, several arbors to choose from and so much more. They really have thought about so much to make it easier on a soon to be couple.
Endless possibilities as well for all my little details to be incorporated on their venue as well. They took away all of our stresses and made dreams become a reality.
I could on for hours about every little perfect detail from the first walk thru to the last handshake.
Down by the pond saved us from a nightmare and gave us our fairy tale.
Do yourself a favor and just do a quick walk thru at Down by the pond in Battleground and see the vision of your dream wedding become a reality .
My husband and I just had our wedding at Down By The Pond and it was incredible! Emily was so helpful, from sharing ideas, brainstorming décor, and making sure that all of our wedding plans were able to work. She was super communicative too, she kept it contact not only with me but with all of our vendors to coordinate everything which I really appreciated.
The venue itself is gorgeous! We had our ceremony by the pond itself and our reception in their reception area, it was all beautiful. We had so many guests tell us what a beautiful space it was too.
We got married here in July and it was absolutely perfect! The venue is beautiful! They have a lot of flexibility to help you achieve the vision that you’re looking for. We also hired Emily as our day of coordinator through the venue and she was wonderful! She was so helpful during the process and the day of! I cannot recommend this venue enough! It’s amazing!
First off we wanted to say that this venue is so beautiful! We had our wedding at Down By The Pond in Battle Ground, WA. The lights that are strung up around the property, the live edge tables, the trees, and pond are absolutely beautiful! My guests were complimenting the venue the whole time. The wedding turned out lovely and was everything we had dreamed of and more. We also wanted to mention the planning process was easier because of Emily. Emily was very helpful and responded to all my emails that contained many questions over the months of planning. If you're looking for a beautiful venue in Washington we would definitely recommend checking out Down By The Pond. I promise you will love it!

We had a Lord of the Rings themed wedding, and this venue was the perfect setting. Our ceremony was in the forest, and we had our reception between the pond and barn on the grass. There was a large tree stump turned table that was awesome for our Hobbit themed dessert area. Emily was our venue coordinator and day of wedding coordinator, and she exceeded our expectations. She worked very hard to help us create the wedding of our dreams. There is nothing she couldn’t handle! We got lots of compliments from guests saying it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to (guests from both in town and out of town). 10/10 would recommend if you’re considering having your wedding here!
We are so lucky to have found Down By the Pond for our wedding, Emily and her family were so welcoming and helpful. This venue was everything we were looking for and more! Family from near and far couldn't stop telling us how beautiful everything was. My husband and I were a little worried with how hot our August wedding was going to be, but all the trees kept everyone cool. We are so grateful to have had our magical day here.
