Bonanza Creek Guest Ranch and Weddings With Wenda are partnering to offer YOU a destination wedding package.  Your wedding will be beautiful and simple, set right here in God’s country. Begin your life together amidst the strength and solitude that this beautiful country offers.

The picturesque Lennep Church could be the setting for your wedding, or you can choose to be married under the canopy of Montana’s Big Sky or at the Lodge at the  ranch. 

The Church was established in 1891 and is well loved and cared for by this small authentic ranching community. 

After the ceremony, gather at the Bonanza Creek Lodge where you can host your reception. Let the fun begin with a view that will take your breath away.

Our team and wagon is fun and a beautiful way for the bride to make her entrance, a great place for wedding pictures or a ride for the whole wedding party.



Weddings by Wenda  – Wenda will meet with you and get to know your love story.  It’s about you and your life together, not everything and everybody else.  She is a beloved, experienced wedding officiant and will create with you a wedding ceremony that will be warm and personalized.  

Ceremony –  You can wed at the quaint Lennep Church which is just the right size for small and intimate or seats up to 90.  You can choose to marry outdoors in a casual setting under the canopy of Montana’s big sky or make your vows at the Bonanza Creek Lodge.  What a choice!

Team and wagon ride – A fun western touch to your Montana country wedding.  Larry, a local cowboy, has been driving teams for 50 years and is here to help your dreams come true.  

Reception at the lodge –  Feast on a sit down dinner for a group up to 24, or for a larger group, spill out onto the deck and enjoy the casual atmosphere and view of the spectacular Crazy Mountains.  

Photo Ops – The church is picturesque in its country setting and is beautiful inside,  or you can have some western fun with team and wagon pictures, use the gorgeous countryside as a backdrop, or nothing beats the view from the deck at the lodge.  Or how about all 3.  

A Spot to Dress – The lodge and a cabin will be available before the ceremony for the wedding party.  

Cabin for bride and groom – A secluded little cabin just for you when the day is done.

There are 3 additional cabins if more of your party would like to stay.  Included with your cabin is fishing, hiking, access to the Lewis and Clark National Forest, and, of course, peace and quiet.  Check them out here:

For your own personal choice are the caterer, bartender, wedding cake, flowers, photographer, pianist and music. We are happy to advise you of some of our great local talented folks. Either way, we leave wedding cake, flowers, liquor, photographer, pianist and music up to you.

Package cost is normally $1750, but due to the pandemic we are offering each piece separately. Call us to discuss dates and details at 406 572-3366 or email June at

“To say that Wenda did a wonderful job in officiating our wedding would be an understatement. From our very first meeting and through to the big day, she took the time to get to know us on a personal level and recognize the small unique characteristics of our relationship. She made us feel comfortable from the very beginning and helped us recognize what each of us could bring to our marriage based on our life experiences . “

Everything about this guest ranch was A+++. The cabins were clean and all within walking distance of the main lodge . . . .  The food was amazing. June and David, along with the whole staff at Bonanza Creek, went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. They truly made us feel like family!! The scenery was simply breathtaking.  It was a perfect “10”!!
