As you drive up to 231 North Event Center, you can’t help gain a new appreciation for just how beautiful the Inland Northwest is. This working farm venue is surrounded by rolling wheat fields, barns, quaint dirt roads and photo opportunities around every corner. Not only that, but the owners Tess and Anthony go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure to offer their clients modern conveniences and exceptional customer service.
Here are 4 reasons 231 North Event Center stands out from the crowd!
1. Very Few Restrictions.
We put very few rules and restrictions on our couples – we know they have a certain day in mind and we don’t like to interfere with their dream. There’s very little we say no to.
#2. One wedding per weekend.
Because we (Anthony & I) both have day jobs, we can’t logistically pull off more than one wedding per weekend, so we don’t. This allows our couples to have plenty of time to set up and rehearse on Friday, do prep and pictures in addition to the ceremony and reception on Saturday, and even come back on Sunday to grab anything that was left behind the night before. We like the fact that the couples don’t feel rushed or that they don’t have enough time to enjoy the day, so we’re pleased that we can offer that flexibility.
#3. No limits on outside vendors/caterers.
We don’t limit other outside vendors from coming to 231 North. We do offer catering, DJ, and officiant services, but by no means are the couples required to use any of those. They are more than welcome to self-cater or have an outside caterer and the same goes with the DJ and officiant.
#4.We are a real farm!
We are fully functional wheat, barley, and cattle ranch and we really do enjoy getting more people out to the farm and willing to appreciate the rural setting like we do 🙂
Here are a couple reviews from some couples we’ve been lucky to work with:
“All I can say is WOW! 231 North Event Center rarely caters outside of their own venue, but I am so thankful they did! We had a taco bar, and it was amazing! All of my guests commented on how great the food was. I even had a friend tell me they had tacos the next day because the food at the wedding was so delicious, and they were craving more tacos. They were so efficient and willing to help!”

“So I just wanted to thank you guys ahead of time for being so helpful, and allowing us to have the day before to set up, the day of, and then the day after for clean up. You guys are amazing and I feel so less stressed out knowing that you guys will be there for me to make this as stress-free as possible. I’m so happy I am going through you guys for our venue option!”
