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 just for you and your “special few”.

Begin your life together amidst the strength and solitude that this rugged country offers.  Come to one of the most scenic places on earth, take your wedding photos with the Crazy Mountains as a backdrop, and savor delicious food on the deck of the Bonanza Creek Lodge.

The picturesque Lennep Church could be the setting for your wedding, or you could be married under the canopy of Montana’s Big Sky or at the Guest Ranch.  The church was established in 1891 and is well loved and cared for by this authentic ranching community.  Wenda is an experienced wedding officiant and will spend time with you so that your wedding ceremony will be warm and personalized.  


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

We’ve added more fun with a team and wagon.  It’s a beautiful way for the bride to make her entrance, a great place for wedding pictures or a ride for the whole wedding party.


That means we have the hassle covered.  

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.  

Ceremony –  What a choice!  You can wed at the quaint Lennep Church which is just the right size for your “special few” (or seats up to 90), under the canopy of Montana’s big sky or at the Bonanza Creek Lodge. 

Team and wagon ride – Larry, a local cowboy, has been driving teams for 50 years, and will even let you have a go at it.    

Reception at the lodge –  Enjoy the casual atmosphere and view from the deck.

Strolling dinner for 12 -15 – Created by chef Amber Burlison, a taste bud treat.  She will serve up to 20 at an added cost.  Liquor is allowed, but bring your own. 

Photo Ops – The church is beautiful inside and out,  or you can have some western fun with team and wagon pictures, use the old Lennep Store as a backdrop . . . . . . OR there is nothing better than the Crazy Mountains in the background at the lodge. 

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

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:

A few things that are a bit more personal we thought you would like to choose on your own or might not even care to have.  Either way, we leave the wedding cake, flowers, liquor, photographer, pianist and music up to you.

These 2019 dates are available…But, we are already booking for 2020. A non-refundable deposit of 30% of the Package cost secures your date.

“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 . “
