Glacier park is a place that I had grown up loving and my husband had always wanted to get married in the mountains, so it was a no brainer that we were going to get married here. Before we were even engaged, my husband and I had been looking into this specific venue and we had contacted the venue regarding prices, and we were sold on for sure having our wedding here. They are able to accommodate small intimate weddings, to large weddings as well! The tent set up is beautiful for the reception and the mountain view for the ceremony is unbeatable!Sent on 10/12/2018

Choosing to have our wedding at Great Northern Resort / Glacier Park Weddings was the best wedding planning decision we made! The venue was exactly what we hoped for, and the staff was instrumental in helping us achieve our wedding dreams. We have received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue space was, how nice the staff was, and how perfect and convenient it was to have so many guests right there on site for multiple days. Booking the venue for 3 days allowed us to really connect with all our guests more than just the fleeting moments you get with other venues and one night weddings. The staff was incredibly helpful all weekend (more-so than our coordinator) and assisted with anything we forgot to plan for. We booked their bar and breakfast services and both were outstanding. People got locked out after hours, and they helped with that as well. The staff really put in the extra effort which made the difference in a wedding memory that could have easily been a sour one.

Absolutely PERFECT venue for your Glacier Park wedding!
Glacier Park Weddings & Great Northern Resort made our wedding absolute perfection this summer! It was the first venue we looked at, and we knew right away it was the one. We were looking for an outdoor yet romantic and classy setting. This venue delivers all of the above. It is set in an adventurous location, within minutes to the west entrance of Glacier National Park, but with all of the modern amenities you could hope for at a wedding ceremony and reception. We had 75 guests and the grounds accommodated our group perfectly.
Cathi and Byron went above and beyond to ensure everything turned out better and more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Cathi was especially wonderful to work with. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue coordinator. She was incredibly communicative throughout the entire planning process, always happy to answer any questions (no matter how big or small), always responded in a timely manner, and made us feel like we were her only clients. We really felt like we became friends with everyone at the resort by the end of the weekend. They are a family-owned and operated business, and you will always feel like a part of their family when you're staying here.
We were able to rent out all of the lodging rooms the night of our wedding, which was so fun for us and all of our guests. The lodge and chalets are comfortable and so charming. At the end of the night, we just had to stroll down the pathway from the reception tent to our rooms! Our families loved being onsite all week before the wedding and felt like they were away at summer camp.
In addition to utilizing the venue space, we also used Great Northern Resort's bar package for our reception, and even offered a rafting trip for our family and friends the day before the wedding. It was a huge hit! Our bartenders were really outgoing and entertained our guests all night. Their team's presentation was also very professional.
I would highly recommend this venue for your Glacier National Park wedding. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing! Thank you again, Glacier Park Weddings, for making our day unforgettable.
