  • We weren’t able to give the full deposit down and we asked if we could do half the depot now and the other half in 60 days and they were totally okay with that.

    We were so happy to work with you to make things flow smoothly and we so look forward to assisting you guys with the rest of the details as your planning proceeds! Thanks for sharing your experience, Erica.

  • I have attended a couple of weddings at The Woodlands and each were absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! I hope to get married myself there someday! The venue gives off an authentic Monana feel, with the towering trees and twinkly lights illuminating the night I truly felt like I had stepped into a Western fairy tale. Anyone would be the luckiest to tie the knot here!

    Oh, thank you, Emily! We are always delighted when people take time out of their busy day to post and share a personal experience about our special little corner of the world. We hope you get married here someday too! We will look forward to helping you through that exciting stage in life when the time is right. All the best, Elsa

  • Elsa and her team at The Woodlands helped make our big day everything we could have wanted! The meadow and grand room are absolutely beautiful! The entire venue really embraces what it feels like to be in the Montana countryside. And having the adorable cabin to spend the night in was the cherry on top! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful place for their wedding day.

  • Elsa and Taye are the best! They made the whole process so easy for us and fun to plan. We have a son who has special needs and they made sure we had anything we needed for him on our big day. It was an absolutely great day in a beautiful setting!

  • The Woodlands Venue sits in a canyon very dear to my heart already, and the fact it was just as beautiful was all the more amazing. The package deals they offer give you so much flexibility to really make your day unique and special, and they are very patient with working with you to make it just how you want. We also had a rainy start to our wedding day making the day really chilly, but they worked with us to dry things off before the ceremony and add heaters for our guests. As a nursing student, it was great to be able to have them do most of the decorating, because I did not have a lot of time with semester to do those things myself. The whole experience was very relaxed, and if I had questions they answered them promptly and fully. The venue makes the wedding have that cozy Montana feel with its beautiful setting, yet elegant if you wish with the decor pieces. I really appreciated the experience, and cannot thank the managers and owners enough for providing such amazing service to ... Read more

We want all those things. . .relaxed, beautiful, ease. . . for our couples and I am so glad that you were cozy and comfortable in our great room regardless of Montana's infamous weather fluctuations.

  • Stunning venue. The location is unbeatable and the service unbelievable. We were able to carry out a becautiful wedding on the more DIY (do it yourself) level and appreciate that so much was still included in the basic package. The add on items we did pick were a hit especially the fire bowls. Instantly adored Chuck who as an owner was our main go to person. He has a true gift of being calming, patient and real. At one point in the evening I looked around at everyone having fun in such a spectaular place and it felt surreal- like a scene from a fairytale. As the mother of the bride I am so very grateful for The Woodlands. If you are considering having your event there I highlt recommend it. One idea I wish we would have done was to give little flashlights to guests when they left since that would have been fun and they could have used them getting to the parking lot.

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Lianne! It was so fabulous to work with your wonderful group. I hope everyone takes the time like you did, to step back, take a deep breath and soak it all in... .the beauty, the joy, and the love.

  • I highly recommend the Woodlands! Our daughter’s wedding 3 weeks ago was absolutely picture perfect in every way. The property is breathtaking, and the building is stunning in its rustic elegance, with a roomy foyer, and a large reception room with a fireplace that flows onto a patio with fire columns for chilly nights. There is a groom’s room, complete with tv and fridge, that also accesses a patio. Great place for the groomsmen to congregate and get dressed before the ceremony. And for the bride and her girls, there is a lovely loft upstairs with natural light, a full service kitchen, a lounge area, ample mirrors, a full bath, and a balcony overlooking the main patio. Ideal for pre-wedding photos and a refuge for the girls throughout a very long day and night. Elsa and Taye will work with you to find vendors, figure out your style, and help you to create the mood you want and carry out your vision of your perfect day. Thank you Elsa and Taye!

  • We loved our experience at The Woodlands at Cottonwood Canyon. Nestled back in the mountains among the aspen and pine, you wouldn't believe you were 15 minutes from town. We had guests from all over the country and they just couldn't stop saying how breath taking the site was. We couldn't agree more. The whole staff made planning our wedding in under a year easy! Simple and classy Montana mountain venue.

  • We knew very quickly that this was where we wanted our wedding--indoor/outdoor possibilities (because Montana), space for both bride and groom to hang out and get ready (because we wanted it to feel like everyone could be there hanging with us before the ceremony), and far enough out of town that you feel remote, without being so far away that people don't want to make the drive, have to drag overnight, or leave early to get home. We chose the most inclusive package because though it cost more, it added an incredible about of value and actually prevented us from having to spend more on smaller hidden costs that you might not think of right away--like chairs for the ceremony (they have benches), centerpieces for the tables, linen consultation and rental, and a whole lot of other decor extras, plus a honeymoon cabin! We had a wonderful experience, and got so much positive feedback from our friends and family. We couldn't have asked for a better venue.

  • I love Elsa. As simple as that. I couldn't imagine pulling our wedding off without her organization, support and overall cheerful demeanor. For the stressed brides, Elsa will bring the calm to the storm. We booked the Woodlands at Cottonwood Canyon without ever seeing the venue. Crazy, right? My husband and I live in Houston and decided on a destination wedding in Bozeman. With funds running low, we didn't have the extra money to make a trip up to Montana to look at venues. Based on the website and my conversation with Elsa, we knew the Woodlands was the perfect place for us to get married. And my, we were right! We finally saw the venue the week of the wedding and our breath was taken away by the beauty of the whole place. Our entire wedding party kept telling us they couldn't believe how beautiful the venue was! Planning a wedding from 1500 miles away is hard, but with Elsa as our coordinator, everything came together perfectly. We literally had the perfect day we had always w... Read more

  • The only advice I would give would be to have very clear expectations about how you are going to do your seating. We HAD to have a seating arrangement because of family issues, the day before we had some seating issues, but they were handled quickly. If you are using the honeymoon cabin for that evening be sure to send someone down to stock it with some water and snacks.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you for sharing your experience Elizabeth. We so appreciate the feedback we get from our couples and you are not alone in finding the seating chart aspect challenging as you try to figure out who goes where and who gets along with who. ;) (Whew!) I am so glad that once you got it dialed in, that we could execute just what you asked for. We hadn't thought to put water bottles down in the cabin since our mountain well water is so delicious and we work hard to reduce plastic waste but I will be sure to share that with future couples so they have the option. Congratulations Elizabeth! I hope you are enjoying your first full year together.

  • SO BEAUTIFUL! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and the Woodlands made it complete. The Ceremony and Reception areas are both gorgeous! They offer the best flexibility with the ability to use any outside vendors, which is an option most local venus do not offer. Best. Venue. Ever.
