About the Vendor

Whether you hope to exchange your vows in a green meadow alongside a meandering creek or on a hillside with a breathtaking backdrop of big sky and mountain views, Dolan Creek Farm offers endless possibilities for building your dream outdoor wedding.

Scenic, Unique, and Naturally Beautiful...

Nestled in the Salmon River Valley on 160 acres, Dolan Creek Farm is conveniently located 10 minutes from the city of Salmon Arm, BC. Dolan Creek Farm is home to expansive views of Mount Ida and the cliffs of the Fly Hills, a bright, airy post-and-beam barn, and lush pastures featuring the winding creek that gives the farm its name.

On the Fly Hills above the farm, the top of the property provides a picturesque lookout with panoramic views of the area including Shuswap Lake and beyond. With this idyllic setting, Dolan Creek Farm is perfect for a variety of events - from weddings to private parties or anything you wish to celebrate or showcase.

The Barn...

Built in 1973, our post-and-beam barn is bright, open, and airy, with exposed rafters and beautifully aged lumber. With a 30x60 foot main space and two 15x60 foot side bays, our barn provides ample space for creating and enjoying your event. Elegantly draped globe string lights provide the perfect sparkle, while our vintage pendant lights give the barn a rustic yet polished feel. Additional details include oak wine barrels and wrought iron hooks to help feature your event decor. A 16x20 foot dance floor completes the scene and is waiting and ready for the party to start. 

The Pasture...

Standing in our pasture, amid the grasses and wild sage, you will be greeted with views of Mount Ida and the cliffs of the Fly Hills. Dolan Creek, which gives our farm its name, winds its way through the pasture on its way to the Salmon River that travels along the edge of the farm. Our fields provide versatile options for the various stages of your event - from a wedding ceremony to photographs to taking a pause to enjoy the calm of the space. 

The Lookout...

Perched above the barn and pastures, high up on the Fly Hills, is the topmost section of our property. Less than a 15 minute drive from the farm, the lookout is an incredible spot to view the features of Salmon Arm and a one-of-a-kind setting for your bridal party photographs. With more than 180 degrees of views of the Shuswap area, sites that are visible include Mount Ida and the Salmon River Valley and Shuswap Lake with the mountain ranges of Revelstoke in the distance. Our lookout is also available as a ceremony site for smaller weddings of up to 50 guests.
