We are family owned and operated in a casual but serene setting in Browns Valley, Ca. We sit on 40 acres of private gardens and there are lots of great privates spaces for you and your guests to wander through and enjoy. We specialize in vintage and country wedding décor. Since we have only been open to the public for a few years, you will be booking a venue just a few miles from Yuba City or Grass Valley and one that will be unique and different than all of the other places your friends have already had their weddings. It's a perfect place for a wedding that is both unique and personalized. Full service planning and décor is available on site. Our wedding planning services are included in all of our packages so no need to have the expense of an off site planner. We also have many options and trade secrets that we share with our brides and grooms to get the most out of your wedding budget.

We have indoor and tented reception locations and a beautiful oak tree canopied ceremony site as well as a pond option for your ceremony.

Our goal is to give you the wedding or event you've always dreamed of. A beautiful event that reflects your unique personality and style and one your guests will delight in.

Willow Creek Events offers flexible wedding packages with lots of special touches. We are uniquely positioned to create your memorable day, week or weekend for less than you might expect.

Kristen Brown is incredibly gifted and this venue has beautiful grounds, perfect for vintage/country/shabby chic wedding!
Our daughter will be married there on July 5th and Kristen has taken great care with all the details leading up to the event. During what is usually a very stressful time... Kristen has consistently been a JOY to work with.
She is doing all decor, photo booth area and props, florals, sweets, wine bar, mismatched china, everything you can dream, she provides. We were even offered a harpist!
We love her DJ and we booked our caterer through Kristen as well (we sampled their food at Open House #AMAZING!) and met a vendor there that will be providing "Homemade Lavender Ice Cream" for a special treat.
Kristen is making cobblers in mason jars for us as well as cakes, cupcakes and other treats for the "Sweets Table".
I will update review post wedding, but have no doubt this will be a wonderful wedding day for our daughter and her guests!
Thank you Kristen and Mark as well as everyone involved with making Hillary's dream wedding come true!

Where do I even start? Kristen and her team made our wedding day the best day of my life. After frustration early on in our engagement due to scheduling conflicts with a destination wedding venue, we found Kristen and she saved the day. The venue was everything I could have ever dreamed of and more. She provided a sweets table, centerpieces, linens, tents, BEAUTIFUL florals, cake, and advice (which was so important and appreciated since my mother lives out of state). We went through her DJ (Owen you ROCK!) and preferred caterer (Fresh & Quick...YUM!!!) and were not disappointed. Although we had the option to pick our own caterer/DJ, it was really helpful to have vendors who are familiar with the owner and property. Smooth sailing.
Kristen was flexible, open to ideas (I'm a Pinterest queen hehe), and professional. Her excitement and passion for her job shows through every tiny detail. What a joy she is.
If anything went wrong on my wedding day, I never heard about it or noticed it :)
My only suggestion to brides considering this venue is to make sure you can schedule a time for your photographer to check out the grounds to scope out photo ops (or go through one of her preferred vendors who is familiar with the property). Some of the areas can get spotty since they are under trees but there are SO many beautiful areas to get great pictures. Just be flexible to explore the options. My photographer is rad and didn't have a problem the day of since she checked it out before hand. To this day, I am so thankful to have had an opportunity to work with Kristen and her amazing team. If you are looking for a dreamy outdoor venue...THIS IS IT LADIES.

Kristen Brown went above and beyond my expectations in every way. By taking all of the stress of planning my wedding onto herself, she allowed me to enjoy my engagement period much more than I would have thought possible. But don't get me wrong--she was incredibly sensitive to my vision of how my dream vintage-style wedding (her specialty) would play out. It was clear from our first meeting that, just because Kristen only does "vintage style" weddings, she does not have some generic formula that she tweaks here and there for each of her brides. No tiny detail, whether it be something I absolutely must have or something I didn't want, was too small for her--from the decor to the flowers to the utterly delicious array of miniature desserts at the dessert bar (which she made herself, of course). She simply listened very carefully to all of my wedding hopes and dreams and, then--in a very David Tuterra-ish style--made them all come true... and then some!! My big day at Willow Creek Events was the single happiest day of my life! I owe that in large part to the woman I now call "Wonder Woman," Kristen Brown. Thank you Kristen, for making this bride's every wish come true!!

P.S. If you are thinking of having your wedding at Willow Creek Events, I would recommend Lixxim photography as well. They are AMAZING--friendly, responsive, professional, efficient, and best of all, they have a great working relationship with Kristen, so they know her extensive, gorgeous property like the back of their hand (in other words, they know all of the best places to get amazing shots--and trust me, there are plenty) and they have exclusive pricing for her venue!!

Willow Creek Events & Full Service Vintage Rentals responded with the following comments:

As owners of a beautiful property, we take extra pride and care in maintaining our venue. Each bride and groom that book their wedding here expect the gardens and grounds to be as pristine as when they booked. We do not allow children to throw rocks on lawns or at people, run around the property unattended, hit a vintage car with a wooded baseball bat, play near water/ponds, swing on the poles that support the tent or use our luxury trailered restrooms as a jungle gym/home base for hide and seek. In our contract we make it clear that we will not allow children under the age of 10 to run around the property or we will step in and make sure the parents take control of each situation. We make it clear that we have ponds, gardens and this is not the best venue for young children of the parents who do not supervise them. We have an expansive outdoor wedding facility and most of our guests who come with children, do so without incident. This day it was not the case. I don't know of any wedding venue that allows children to run around their property unattended or misbehave. Our goal is to keep our property beautiful, our guests safe, and, most of all, keep our wedding couple the primary attraction. Sometimes, this can make guests uncomfortable when we're left doing the supervision.

Kristen and her team were so professional, gracious and accommodating. My guests were treated like royalty, the team made accommodations to our family by providing careful cart transportation for our wheelchair and scooter challenged elders. The atmosphere was most pleasant, relaxed, elegant and our timeline flowed seamlessly as Kristen orchestrated our event. The wedding and reception area was immaculate and decorated exactly as designed and met my highest expectations. Yes, Kristen is a stickler on the details! But that is what it takes to have a beautiful wedding with the best memories to last a lifetime. Thank you Kristen and the team (Mati too!) for all your diligent hard work to make my special day the best that it could be!!! My guests have reported it was the most "Beautiful and Best Wedding" they’ve attended.

The grounds at Willow Creek are breath-taking. We booked the venue the same day that we visited. There are 40 acres landscaped with flowers, trails, ponds and wooded areas offering an abundance of photo opportunities. My daughter was married by the pond. We dined in the barn, and danced until dark on the back brick patio.

Kristen, the owner, was very easy to work with, guiding us through the planning of the wedding. She was a valuable resource for us, as we had minimal experience in planning a large event. If we had made any questions, she would get back to us the next day. The feedback we got from our vendors was that she was pleasant, organized and that they had a clear picture of where and when to be where they needed to be.

All in all, Kristen helped provide my daughter with a fun, beautiful and wonderful wedding!

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, James 1:17,” was how the perfect wedding for our daughter and son-in-law began, how it ended, and how the process leading up unfolded. Our every encounter and experience with Kristen Brown, her husband, and her staff exceeded not only our expectations but our vision. Willow Creek is BEAUTIFUL, it has manicured lawns and gardens, AND it has natural ponds and landscaping. Any couple would be able to have their wedding at Willow Creek and have the wedding of their dreams. Kristen was available and responded quickly and professionally, she listened to my daughter and her fiancée’s needs, she brainstormed ideas, and she delivered on all of her promises. We stretched her capacity with our guest number and she did a wonderful job, and we had a large yet intimate wedding setting.

The grounds at Willow Creek are simply breath-taking. The facility choices are varied so any event is possible. Our daughter also had her bachelorette party at Willow Creek and it was one of the highlights of the wedding process. Our son and his bride have also chosen Willow Creek to have their wedding. I think this is the highest form of praise for Willow Creek. I think Kristen Brown, her husband, and her staff deserve the highest of praise.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, James 1:17,” was how the perfect wedding for our daughter and son-in-law began, how it ended, and how the process leading up unfolded. Our every encounter and experience with Kristen Brown, her husband, and her staff exceeded not only our expectations but our vision. Willow Creek is BEAUTIFUL, it has manicured lawns and gardens, AND it has natural ponds and landscaping. Any couple would be able to have their wedding at Willow Creek and have the wedding of their dreams.

Her whole crew the day of the wedding was very polite and you didn't even notice they were there! Everything went smooth and perfect the day of (well at least as the bride i thought so :)

I'm surprised and a little sad that my experience with Willow Creek Events and the owner/coordinator Kristen wasn't as pleasant as the other brides who have reviewed her state theirs was. The venue is GORGEOUS, there are numerous photo opportunities and when my husband and I toured the facility 11 months prior to our wedding date, we were hooked and we booked within days. The process with Kristen was smooth up until a few days before the wedding. We wanted our wedding different than what Kristen is used to. Willow Creek Events website shows a good detailed vision of what to expect if you take what my husband and I dubbed as "Kristen's Wedding" ...we didn't. We wanted to set up appetizers and bread bowls with olive oil and vinegar on each table. A few days before the wedding our caterer called my groom to state that the venue is saying we can’t have olive oil, vinegar and bread on the tables. We contacted Kristen and she said she was worried about her linens now. My groom offered to rent our own linens and she could pay us for them – she huffed and puffed but agreed that since she said we could do this, she will “allow it.” After this happened Kristen emailed me a pretty heated email and closed her email with “bottom line: it’s my property.” No bride should receive any type of unprofessional “who’s to blame” emailed letter days before her wedding. Day of the wedding wasn’t any better. Kristen didn’t coordinate or help set up/take down as was contracted and promised by her. She showed the venue while we were getting ready to potential clients. She didn’t do the cake service as promised. My wedding party had to deliver on everything Kristen was supposed to do. Our DJ took over as coordinator and even asked Kristen to please be quiet when she was talking to our guests during our dinner blessing. Overall, look for another location. Looks great because the venue is that beautiful but the customer service is not even lacking … it’s horrible.

Willow Creek Events & Full Service Vintage Rentals responded with the following comments:

This bride is exactly correct. We did have a great working relationship throughout the entire planning process. A few days before the wedding the Groom became combative and rude about some items in the contract and the bad behavior continued in to the day of the wedding. They agreed they had not read the contract but the Groom continued to be combative. Our goal is to always treat each guest with care and know we cannot always please everyone. Many of the immediate family members praised us for our hospitality and so appreciated us and other apologized for the Groom’s bad behavior.

The venue is so beautiful. There are many great spaces to capture photos. Though the shaded area for the ceremony is great for summer weddings, if you have more than 150 guest the space can get cramped. Although they have another beautiful space by the water that you can set up however you'de like, just no shade. Overall I was pleased with the venue setup and the staff.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for our wedding than Willow Creek Events. Owner, Kristen Brown, goes above and beyond what you would expect from a wedding coordinator. Any questions or concerns are handled in a professional, timely manner. She was always open to our ideas and last minute changes. Kristen made the whole wedding process less stressful, allowing us to relax and just enjoy our special day. In short, working with her was a pleasure!
If your idea of a dream wedding includes: gorgeous oak trees, a beautiful pond, romantic wooden bridges, manicured flower gardens, ornate iron gates,(The whole place is a photo op!) Convenient on site reception room with pretty french doors, chandeliers,and vintage-country decor then Willow Creek Events is the place for you!

Willow Creek Events is a beautiful, serene place to have a wedding. Kristen Brown (owner) was very helpful in carrying out our wedding theme and the feel we desired.

Peggy Brown played the harp for our ceremony. She plays beautifully! She was also helpful to us with her knowledgeable in wedding etiquette. Thanks Peggy!

Ryan Vaughn was our DJ/MC. I can't say enough about him. Ryan was very attentive to what we wanted and didn't want. He never took the attention off of the wedding and put it on himself, which is typical of so many DJs'. Ryan was perfect!

Our wedding was beautiful with memories we will cherish for a lifetime.
