Weddings at The Ranch

Located in one of the most stunning natural environments in the American West, The Ranch at Rock Creek is a wedding destination in the purest sense. As the world’s first Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star ranch, our historic Montana property hosts one-of-a-kind destination wedding events. Ten square miles of river, forest, valley and vista provide almost limitless opportunities for breathtaking ceremonies, intimate brunches and festive receptions. The Ranch at Rock Creek weddings are designed to avoid the stress associated with metropolitan venues and destination wedding arrangements in tourist hubs. We offer custom, fully inclusive weddings for up to 125 guests.

The all-inclusive rate includes bespoke accommodations, farm-to-table meals, premium wine, beer and spirits and twice-daily on-Ranch activities for you and all of your guests, in addition to other standard Ranch inclusions. Our wedding experts create a personalized itinerary brimming with signature style, family gatherings and dining experiences. Original structures, such as the Historic Barn, set against wildflower grasslands and Big Sky grandeur serve as a vivid contrast to the refinement of your event and ensure awe-inspiring photography. The result is a destination event designed to be the perfect mix of intimacy and camaraderie—a joining of two families over a three-day adventure.

Our trip to the Ranch at Rock Creek to attend a wedding will go down as the most memorable family vacations we’ve ever experienced. The property is magnificent, with views in every direction. The guest houses, “glamping tents” (don’t be fooled by the word “tents,” they are spectacular) and Granite Lodge are externally understated, but elegantly appointed inside. The service was excellent and friendly, and the food was outstanding. The wedding party had the entire ranch booked, and everyone had the chance to participate in many activities, including spa, pool, hiking, fishing, riding, shooting, sporting clays, mountain biking and a fun rodeo. If you want a less active trip, the lodge and other buildings are filled with comfortable chairs and sofas for reading and conversation. The staff at the Ranch put on a wedding and it went off without a hitch. I’ve never had a trip to a resort where every member of the staff I spoke with was willing to do what we needed, with a smile.
