Loved our October wedding -- thank you!!
The most incredible thing about organizing a wedding at Black Butte Ranch is that they have a coordinator who walks you through the whole process. Emily was wonderful -- very responsive and helpful with planning templates and "to do" lists that are designed based on BBR's experience and the needs of past couples. They provide lists of local vendors, menus, and a free tasting day for couples who decide to choose BBR as their venue. The food and drink options are incredibly broad, and the chef and beverage director were very helpful and flexible to make sure we got the experience we wanted. Our guests loved the Prime Rib -- many said it was the best wedding food they'd had!
As a multi-cultural couple with family and friends flying in from all over the world, the Lodging team were very accommodating as well. It's worth noting that the experience is different from "blocking" rooms at a local hotel, but the overall experience of renting a house and having access to everything the Ranch offers is totally different! Our guests LOVED it, and appreciated the activities, the spa, and the general outdoor beauty.

Perfect Winter Wedding!
We loved our winter wedding at Black Butte! I booked a spa day with my friends who all felt like they had had some of the best treatments they'd ever had. My friends and family were impressed with how responsive, professional, and friendly all of the staff were - from the bar to the management. The wedding coordinator was kind, flexible, and very easy to work with - looking to accommodate exactly what we were looking for. My friends and even my Mom had said it was one of the most relaxing weddings they had been to - with the cozy lodging and having everything available right there. Also, having a winter wedding is full of incentives to keep costs down, and we had the most beautiful, snowy, wintry day. I couldn't recommend Black Butte enough!

We had an amazing experience working with the staff at Black Butte Ranch to plan our wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier with how everything came together. We appreciated getting to meet with the wedding coordinator several times leading up to the event and having her check in with us frequently to make sure we were on schedule. Black Butte’s vendor recommendations were all very helpful. They clearly have wedding planning down to a “T”. The food was delicious, the day-of service was great, and everything was executed according to plan. My bridesmaids and I enjoyed getting ready in the bridal suite inside the Lodge, and our wedding guests had a great time exploring the Ranch and taking advantage of the different activities and amenities. The best thing about getting married at Black Butte is probably the view from the ceremony site. The backdrop of the aspen trees, lake, and mountains is absolutely gorgeous. I have been visiting Black Butte Ranch my entire life, and I can’t imagine having had my wedding anywhere else.Sent on 11/28/2018
Black Butte Ranch's reply:
My team and I love working at Black Butte Ranch. Their staff is so professional, kind, and great at communication. They are a well-oiled machine. Their grounds offer amazing super close up views of the mountains, the water, and the woods, all while offering luxury amenities for couples and their guests, not to mention us vendors to enjoy. :)
This destination spot is absolutely gorgeous! You cannot beat the backdrop of mountains and sunshine they have for ceremonies, the deck for receptions, the staff that is immensely helpful and communicative- they help plan your day with you and pull in vendors that are knowledgeable in making sure events go off without a hitch! The food is always fabulous and the little Black Butte Porter cupcakes are amazing!
What an amazing place for a wedding. Black Butte has some of the most amazing views in the area.
