Perfection

Booking at AK Diamond J was the best decision we made for our wedding. Billy and Stephanie are the most amazing people as well are their children. The venue is breathtaking and that would have been enough for us. But Billy and Stephanie came down and started helping us bring our vision to life and helped set up all day long. They had incredible insight as to how things would/should flow. They were so attentive, responsive and just overall amazing people. We had the BEST day ever thanks to them. It’s hard to plan a destination wedding, but they made it so smooth and we’re available to answer any questions we had along the way no matter how small they were. Their hospitality is unmatched. They have a giant shed of decor that was perfect and you really don’t need much of your own. Which is perfect for a destination wedding. Everyone seems to donate to Billy and Stephanie which I think is awesome. Pay it forward. I would come back every year and celebrate our anniversary if we could. Thank you guys for the incredible experience! And thank you to your children for being so helpful and kind as well!

Breathtaking Venue & Incredible Experience

I grew up on a ranch in Montana, my husband grew up on an island in Alaska so when we were searching for a venue for our wedding we wanted a spot that would be the perfect fusion of both. AK Diamond J was the EXACT place we were searching for! From the time I set eyes on AK Diamond J I KNEW it was where we would get married. Billy & Stephanie (the owners) were incredibly responsive and easy to work with through the entire process over the year and half of planning our wedding. We had to change our date once and they were very understanding, we added on an extra night of the guest house, we brought in our own craft cocktails, and any other small or big ask we had, they never acted as it was an imposition. They are definitely service-oriented people as are their children! We had such an amazing time planning the wedding with them and having them be a part of our day. The venue is also the most gorgeous spot in Alaska. The expansive area for all the photos, the beautiful glaciers in the background, the close proximity of all the buildings made it perfect for getting ready, photos, the ceremony, and for our caterer to provide cocktail hour food, dinner, and dessert! Will recommend this spot to anyone else who ever asks for a recommendation!

360 degrees of Alaskan Beauty

From the first time I drove on to the ranch I knew that this was the perfect place to get married. It was the first and only venue I looked at. After telling my husband about it (he was out of town working so he didn't get a chance to see it until the day of.) he said I trust your judgement, it sounds magical! I just knew that it was where I wanted to marry the man of my dreams. It checked every single thing on my list! Mountain Views, Glacier Views, Ocean Views, located on the side of a mountain surrounded by gorgeous Alaskan trees and the most lovely structures. Not to mention the lovely peony fields and meadows of fireweed! The house has plenty of room for everyone to get ready and the bridal suite was perfect! They truly thought of everything, cute decor for accents in pictures, full length mirrors and adorable dressing area, huge bathroom/makeup studio. And I can't forget about the huge upper deck to take in the sunset/sunrise. The barn is rustic yet modern with a huge deck that can be utilized for many things. The pavilion is absolutely stunning with the perfect backdrop for your reception. Aside from all of the beauty I was surrounded by, I knew it was the right place because of the the owners, Stephanie and Billy. They are the most down to earth, hard working, kind people we've had the pleasure of meeting and developing a friendship with. They were ready to help with anything we needed! From practicing the night before, to the day of it was like they were just part of the family eager to make sure we had the best day ever. I am truly grateful for all of their help! Ak Diamond J Ranch was our fairytale dream wedding location become reality!
