Destination Weddings at Rainbow Ranch

June 05, 2020
Destination weddings are the equivalent of fleeing away with those you love. The benefits are many: it’s simple, relaxing, gives you quality time with guests, and the honeymoon begins before you even say, “I do.”​Rainbow Ranch takes this trend to a whole new level. For one, the property can be all yours. There are 21 rooms available that can sleep 74 of your loved ones, along with the lodge, barn, event tent, and hot tub on property! Nestled between the Gallatin and Madison mountain ranges, the ranch has a remote, yet secure feeling.

That said, you’re just down the road from the town of Big Sky, full of savvy shopping and entertainment. Big Sky Resort, known for its 5,850 skiable acres, is equally as much fun in the warm season with over 40 miles of lift accessible mountain biking, zip-lining, and tram expeditions.

Golfers will love the Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole, par 72 golf course, with 360-degree views. And at an elevation of 6,500’, you’ll like how it affords longer drives. The Gallatin River, the locale of A River Runs Through it, has exceptional fishing, whitewater rafting, and kayaking.

The hiking trails are seemingly endless and offer something for all abilities. For a short hike right outside of town, try Ousel Falls, or for the real adventurous souls, you can hike up Lone Mountain and ride the tram down. (Or, conversely, ride the tram to the top and hike down!) From the top of Lone Mountain, you can see two national parks and three states!

Yellowstone National Park, 2 million acres of natural wonders is just 45 minutes away; wedding party excursion, anyone?

As for your wedding day, you can relax, we’ll handle all the details. You’ll have an on-site Wedding Event Planning Manager from day one and our packages are all inclusive. The culinary team at Rainbow Ranch offers a variety of options, from a formal sit-down dinner to more casual options, all made from as much locally produced food as possible. We work closely with local florists, photographers, and bakers—all who pour their artistry into the finishing touches.

Brides will love getting ready in the Bridal Spa Cabin, a rustic log structure with a river-rock, wood-burning fireplace, floor-length mirrors, and salon chairs. Our wine cellar, the Bacchus Room, is a great place for the groom and groomsmen to get ready. We often notice local beers on ice and a nice bottle of whiskey to start the celebration.

As for a backdrop, there’s not a bad spot on the property, indoors or out.

The beginning of forever never looked this beautiful.
