We started planning and dreaming of a lavender farm venue in 2010.  Several trees were cleared, many rocks removed, the soil prepared, and many rows of lavender planted!  We then replaced the horse arena with our wedding venue lawn, designed and refinished and space of the barn to be our Bride’s room, and transformed the rest of the barn into an indoor venue. It takes a few years for lavender to mature, so we opened and had our first wedding in 2015 and have been growing ever since!

Below are a few photos that show how we got started… If you visit today you’ll clearly see all the changes and amazing growth we have been blessed with. Now seven years and 300+ weddings, and we’re still growing, expanding, and holding onto the vision that started it all! We have big dreams as a venue and small business and love that our team gets to help make your wedding dreams come true.

We are Jane Austin fans here at Lavender Manor! Our wedding locations and lavender fields are named after many places and people from Pride and Prejudice and the Recency and Victorian eras. Follow us through the years as we transform our venue into an English Manor-inspired property.

Opening in 2022 is a 7,700 square foot addition. This space will be as a pavilion covering the cement floor acid-stained to have a marble-like appearance, full men’s and women’s restrooms, and a new & improved Bride’s room with a private bathroom. If you have attended a wedding or event here before you’ll be amazed by the changes and additions, so make sure to follow along on social media and keep us in mind for any future events!

Lavender Manor Estate is a perfect destination for your day, just north of Spokane, where you will find yourself surrounded by fields of lavender. You and your guests can breathe in the natural beauty of endless prairie views, gasp in awe at the picturesque backdrop of Mount Spokane and the Selkirk Mountain range. With 40 acres of forest, lavender fields, and natural grasses the photo opportunity potential is endless. Celebrate your love in the large pavilion and cozy tongue and groove dance hall, making memories of a lifetime in the glow of antique chandeliers. Choose from one of our three outdoor ceremony sites and enjoy your reception in the covered pavilion to create a wedding day unlike any other.

Our vast views, majestic Willow Tree, and color palette of Lavender varieties and Rose Geranium Fields complete the estate’s beauty. White, off-white, various pinks, lilac, violets, purple, and even deep blues make up the colors of our lavender varieties. The lavender season in the PNW is dependant on the spring weather but is typically mid-June through July. We harvest our lavender and distill it for essential oil and hydrosol. Our harvest is usually complete around mid-August.  We’ve also surrounded our fields with 1000 Lilac Bushes so our overall bloom season starts in May with the Lilacs, rolls right into Lavender, and finishes out with the Rose Geranium in August and September.

Our experienced coordinators and event staff work hard to fulfill your wedding dreams so that you can relax and enjoy the special day. Cherish every second of your day as we make your experience everything that it was meant to be…
