We decided to get married in September but wanted to have it done by the end of this year so I started planning right away. I love the three sisters mountain range so the Sisters area was where I wanted to have our ceremony so I started reaching out to different venues. Black Butte Ranch was at the top of my list for venues and they were available on one of the dates I had in mind. We only had 10 people in our entire wedding so our wedding was considered an elopement (and because we wanted to do it on a Thursday). Everyone from Black Butte was very helpful in helping decide what to do from the timing of the day to the food to the music. Throughout the couple month process, I made a few changes from our original call and they were very gracious in helping us. On the day of, I was able to relax and enjoy the day, and my sister helped facilitate the final details with the help of Alicia & Michelle. A couple hours before the ceremony I decided to move the ceremony to the trees (due to the cloud cover and not being able to see the mountains) and the gals did it all by themselves. It looked great when it was go time. My wedding day was perfect despite the weather. I think this place is one place that it doesn't matter what the weather is, it will be beautiful no matter what. I can't wait to see pictures. Thank you all and I would definitely recommend having your wedding here (big or small).

Amazing winter wedding venue
We scheduled an elopement last minute and were treated like royalty. The venue, staff, food, and overall experience could not have been better. We laughed, we cried, and had the most perfect wedding experience with amazing photos to look at for years to come. Thank you so much to the Black Butte Ranch staff!Sent on 12/31/2019

Couldn’t have asked for a better day
My family has been coming to Black Butte Ranch since I was a baby, so a celebration at Black Butte felt a bit like a backyard wedding. Still, hosting an event at that scale can be intimidating, to say the least! Luckily, Black Butte made the process so smooth—the entire staff was wonderful to work with, and our coordinator (Alicia Boyd) was a calming + energizing presence throughout the whole process. She was extremely organized and patient with all of our requests, and everything came together more beautifully than I could have ever imagined! Moreover, many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had, and the cake was AMAZING. Thank you, BBR, for a day we will never forget!Sent on 10/05/2019
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.
