Say "I do" at Erik's Ranch

We believe in making dreams come true in the heart of Paradise Valley under one Big Sky.

We know it’s all in the details, and if you’re a rustic romantic, we’ve got you covered. From the initial planning stages to making sure your magical day is your dream come true, we will work with you every step of the way from finding the perfect caterer to whet your palate to securing party rentals to housing your guests.

And let’s talk take-your-breath-away beauty. Montana ruggedness like you’ve never before experienced with the majestic Absaroka Mountains surrounding you and your closest family and friends on your special day.

For further information and logistics, please call us at (612) 401-3080.

I Do

We have plenty of romantic options on our 100-acre property for tying the knot. Perhaps you want to exchange vows on our lovely spacious green lawn with Antelope Butte as your own personal backdrop and the Big Sky as your canopy. For a smaller ceremony, consider saying “I Do” on the deck of The Lodge at Erik’s Ranch. For a super intimate experience for smaller wedding parties, the Lower Level Great Room in the Lodge in front of a 15-foot tall window showcasing a snow-capped Emigrant Peak in the distance might be just what you’re looking for. And, if you book prior to 8/31/17, we will personally escort you in our horse-drawn carriage on your special day!

The Reception

It’s time to celebrate! And we’re certain there will be lots of clinking! Share an exquisite catered meal and delectable libations under a canopied tent on either the main lawn in front of The Lodge or enjoy a lavish poolside reception on the lawn outside our near Olympic-size pool. Tell stories. Raise a toast. Cut the cake. Share a kiss. Or Two. Watch the sun slowly sink behind the mountains. 

Barn Dance

So now you’ve exchanged vows, dined on a scrumptious meal and cut the cake, which means it’s time to get the party started! And we have the perfect location for you! Dance the night away under twinkle lights in our indoor arena. Honky Tonk. Two Step. Polka. Cowboy boots encouraged.

 

Sweet Dreams

Bid your guests goodnight as they nestle down in either the Pool House or The Lodge for the evening. Your private bridal suite awaits you one mile down the road on the top of a mountain on 200 acres with 360-views of the mountains. Where mother nature is your closet neighbor.

 The best part? By booking your wedding with us, you are providing meaningful employment and social opportunities for young adults with autism and are helping make their dreams come true. It’s our version of Happily Ever After.
