Ol Hitchin Post Ranch
family owned wedding venue

family owned + operated

WEDDING VENue

Located in Buckley, WA  |  Established in 2015

Welcome to Ol' Hitchin Post Ranch, where we offer a unique and rustic wedding venue experience that will feel like a home away from home. We are a family-owned and operated business located in the hills of Buckley, Washington.

 

Our passion for horses and the outdoors inspired us to start this business, allowing us to spend more time with our family and enjoy the beauty of nature.

 

Amanda and James Cohn established The OHP Ranch in 2015, and have been the face of the business running the day to dat operations. As of lately their children have taken an interest in helping assist with the behind the scenes set up, clean up and parking detail. 

To best serve our couples, we believe in a family approach to all situations and operations!

Our goal at Ol' Hitchin Post Ranch is to create an environment that removes the stresses from a wedding. We continually maintain and update the property every year, enhancing the appearance while keeping the gorgeous rustic nature.

Another aspect of our business that removes stress from our clients is allowing the ability to setup on Friday and complete a full rehearsal prior to the wedding on Saturday. This has proven to be the recipe for a successful wedding as many couples have stated.

Bringing families together is what truly motivates us to continue doing what we do.

    Yes! Our barn provides the perfect indoor space for a ceremony, and we are experts in helping make a quick transition if needed.
