Winter Wedding in Leavenworth, WA

October 19th, 2015 by insideout

Last winter Brittany & Casey were married at beautiful Pine River Ranch Winter Wedding in Leavenworth, WA, surrounded by snow covered fields and trees. The warmth of the barn, decorated in beautiful white lights was the perfect centerpiece to the winter wonderland.

Photographer Kelly Clare wrote about the day on her blog “There is a certain level of idyllic wonder that is found in a snow covered mountain lodge wedding.  Your guests brave snow packed roads to travel many miles.  As they enter, your friends and family are met with a glass of wine as they shed layers of hats, coats, and mittens while stomping off boots.  They have arrived at a secluded getaway that is both romantic and charming.  Snow is gently falling and the afternoon and evening hold the promise of a beautiful wedding followed by a celebration of two people who have met their match. Brittany & Casey’s wedding at Pine River Ranch in Leavenworth was truly a wonderland.”

History of Pine River Ranch

barn2I learned a little about the History of Pine River Ranch today, and since so many people have asked the question I thought I would share.

The words “Ski-Land” were put on the barn when it was built in 1944 by Mr. Motteler. It was in recognition of his fruit packing plant in Leavenworth: Ski-Land Fruit Packing.

It turns out that Mr. Motteler had two dairies, this was his first with the other one located by Ski Hill in Leavenworth. The Motteler family still continues to run an orchard in the Leavenworth area.

One more mystery about the history of Pine River Ranch solved!
