Perfect site for mountain views
After finding the perfect rooftop restaurant for our destination wedding reception, I really wanted to find a spot with beautiful views of the mountains. I looked into getting married inside the park but the logistics was too much work for me! I was referred to the Glacier raft co and it was the perfect match! We had our ceremony only at the Parkview pavilion, it is as close to the park as you can get without being inside. Amy was extremely helpful to me, I had never been to MT and was not planning on until until a couple days before the wedding. She helped me find all the pictures of the place and explained everything to me, She is super friendly and responsive to emails. She made sure I was able to see the site when I arrived to MT and its even better in person. The site alone is breathtaking and needs no decorations as it is beautiful on its own. There was so many spots for photo ops. When it was time to head to Whitefish for our reception I had a hard time leaving as it was so perfect there! This place will always be special to my heartSent on 07/18/2021

The Glacier Raft Company was the absolute perfect venue with a beautiful view and plenty of space to celebrate. Working with Amy made it so easy! She helped us so much leading up to and on the day of our wedding. It was a day we will never forget.Sent on 07/03/2021

If you want an outdoor wedding, this is the perfect venue for weddings ranging from small to large. Situated right outside the West Glacier entrance, you have Glacier Nat'l Park as your background. Cozy cabin that can house your wedding party/family conveniently next to the venue. The wedding coordinator, Amy, was helpful and nice. I would give them 6 stars if I could.Sent on 06/15/2021

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
