Rustic and Charming!

We got married at Buchanan Hall with our ceremony and reception onsite. From the beginning, we loved this venue - our vision was to have a memorable and meaningful wedding, surrounded by family and friends, at an affordable price. Buchanan Hall is where that vision was solidified and ultimately, carried out. The price for renting the hall cannot be beat and they allow so much flexibility with vendors, which was helpful.

Montana, the point of contact we worked with, is an absolute gem. She gave us plenty of advice and support along the way, along with knowledge of the venue itself. I loved that this venue is a local non-profit and supports a farmers market and other local community events, including a pride celebration.

If you are interested in getting married here - GO VISIT. That will help make the choice for you since you will be able to see all the included amenities, such as getting ready suites. The beautiful mountain view is an added bonus. Thanks again for making our wedding amazing!

October wedding

Words really don’t express how amazing our wedding day was and how beautiful everything was. Buchanan hall made all our wedding day visions come true! The history, outdoor space, get ready rooms, hall, and everything in between was simple perfection. Montana has been amazing this whole process and is more than helpful. We couldn’t think of a better space to hold our big day.

Lovely and charming venue for our wedding reception!

This beautiful, classic space could not have been more lovely for my daughter’s wedding reception this past New Year’s Eve. The big hall, with its windows and chandeliers, and the stage for the wedding party was perfect and charming. The supporting facilities (kitchen, etc) were great. Montana was so responsive and helpful at every stage of the process and gave us great ideas for table configurations and decorations. We were so happy with our choice!
