East of Aubrurn, Washington, up a hill and round several hairpin curves, lies the Wine and Roses Country Estate. A wedding venue, it is like no other you're likely see.

The beauty of the estate lies in its simplicity. Or rather, the illusion of simplicity, for as you well know, there is nothing simple about hosting a wedding with a hundred guests followed by a sit-down dinner reception. Yet, the good folks at Wine and Roses make it look deceivingly easy.

Located on an old country estate, there are three wedding venues on the property. The bride and groom can choose from an outdoor ceremony on the main lawn, fountainside nuptials, or they can get hitched in the barn which admittedly doesn't look like much from the outside, but appearances at Wine and Roses are deceiving.

The interior of the barn has a weathered floor hand-hewn from old-growth timber that harkens back to a bygone era. There's a full bar to one side, seating which magically turns into dining on the other, and a giant loft with even more dining. Just the unusualness of it ignites a magic left unsparked by more conventional venues. Of course, getting married in a barn isn't everybody's cup of tea. But when the bride's clad in cowboy boots, it's kind of a no-brainer. Congratulations Matt and Shelby!
