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!Sent on 02/01/2020

Wedding of our Dreams
Working with Stephanie and Billy Jones Was great. All our planning, questions, and concerns while preparing for our big day were answered promptly and made planning a wedding from North Dakota a breeze. The venue is a work of art in itself! The hand crafted touches complemented the rustic feel and beauty of the location. The decorations provided proved to be more than plenty to create our dream wedding! We would recommend this property through and through!Sent on 01/02/2020

Incredible wedding experience!
Our wedding weekend was the most magical experience, and everything I could of hoped for. It would not have been possible without this beautiful venue and the amazing people behind it . We were able to spend three days in a gorgeous environment celebrating love, laughing, and having the best time. From the moment we stepped on the ranch I felt at peace!! There are so many unique options and ways to set the stage for your wedding, I had so much fun choosing how to utilize this incredible space. With a huge yard off the side of the deck our wedding night was accompanied by everyone enjoying our yard games, music, and petting horses in the pasture. What more could you ask for ?!?!! Our rehearsal dinner was a feast of tacos with our family and friends underneath the pole barn basking in the golden light from the sun with a fire and s’mores to follow . I don’t know how you could ever top being at a place like this and it was so hard to leave. Thank you AK Diamond J ranch for making my wedding dreams come true and for being such amazing gracious hosts!!!Sent on 01/03/2020
