Sara & James
Sara and James wanted to create a unique Gorge wedding experience for their guests. Something that would set their Gorge wedding apart from all others… During their tour of Tin Roof Barn, they asked if a “beer donkey” would be allowed on site. A beer donkey? We were confused too. But wedding llamas have become increasingly popular so why not a wedding donkey? We were intrigued – and it turns out, donkeys have long been popular (and adorable) at weddings around the country, especially in Arizona, where there reside tequila donkeys and beer burros.
Hailing from a Seattle farm, Jacko arrived at Tin Roof Barn on the day of Sara and James’ wedding, as cute and adorable as he could possibly be! He was the star of cocktail hour, offering people beers out of his packs and posing adorably with his flower crown. We were big fans, even without the beer offering!
At Tin Roof Barn, we specialize in creating a bespoke wedding experience for you and your guests. Our stunning Gorge wedding venue includes many standard amenities such as the graceful vintage wood dining tables and mismatched vintage chairs, antique rugs, and furnishings. For your ceremony, we provide ceremony seating for up to 150 of your favorite people in our ceremony patio as well as an optional covered ceremony location, just in case! Our modern restroom facility, the beautifully appointed Bridal Suite and Groom’s Room, the rustic tin covered Pavilion and massive stone fireplace are all part of the indoor/outdoor wedding experience. Stunning mountain views, forests, and valleys of the Columbia River Gorge, make up the background of this whimsical Gorge wedding venue and will leave your guests celebrating late into the evening.
