Best Wedding Ever
This venue is amazing in both location and beauty. Only a few minutes from Glacier National Park, my husband and I did our first look photos in the park, followed by our ceremony and reception at Glacier Raft Co.
Amy is a dream to work with. She's incredibly responsive, compassionate and flexible. Given the pandemic and my husband's deployment, we weren't sure if we'd be having a wedding this year. She gave us a lot of flexibility with all of our unknowns and even reserved a back up date for us. Luckily we were able to have the wedding after all!
Many of our guests told us this was the best wedding they've ever been to. All of the staff did an amazing job with tasks leading up to the wedding and day of set up (chairs and table). Even the bartender was amazing.
I highly recommend this venue to anyone and everyone.Sent on 10/02/2020

Incredible views, great location, couldn't have been happier overall
I recently got married at the Glacier Raft Company Park View Pavilion venue. My experience from start to finish was great! Planning a destination wedding during a pandemic was difficult, to say the least, but the staff at Glacier Raft Company helped ease so much of my stress. They were very responsive and helpful with any and all questions or problems that arose. They also really worked with me to ensure everything was perfect for my big day in a time when everything in the world seemed so uncertain.Sent on 08/17/2020
I picked the venue without ever having seen it before my arrival for the wedding. I thought from the pictures I had seen that it looked like one of the best venues and views in the area. When I arrived and saw the location, everything was even better in person! Overall, I couldn't have been happier with the venue, my experience with Glacier Raft Company, and my wedding itself. It was a beautiful and perfect day that I'll remember forever. Glacier Raft Company Weddings and Events definitely has my recommendation.

amazing experience from responsiveness to the day of our wedding!
I highly recommend Glacier Raft Company for hosting your wedding or event. From the brig inning my experience was wonderful and we had to move our wedding back because of Covid and they couldn’t have made it smoother for us. Amy, the wedding coordinator, is great!Sent on 10/01/2020

Having worked with Terry & Cassie for multiple weddings, I have nothing but good things to say. They and their crew put their heart and soul into every wedding I've been part of. Not only one of Glacier Park (and this valley's) most perfectly located venues, but they have everything to offer all in one place. Great owners, staff, location and venue! - Jennifer Mooney
