History

Gratitude & Grace was originally built in 1878 and was a working farm for many years.

Ron Riddle, a professional musician, and composer is now the owner of Gratitude & Grace. He purchased the property in 2000 as a family home. Over the years they had many wonderful parties and celebrations and "Gratitude & Grace" became a haven for their close friends and families.

Wanting to share the beauty and magic of this amazing place, Ron decided to offer "Gratitude & Grace" to wedding couples as a weekend retreat. Now people come from all over the world to get married and have the best weekend of their life!

People from all races, faiths and sexual preferences are welcome here!

    Amazing weekend

    Gratitude and Grace brought peace and tranquility to our wedding weekend. The isolated experience from the surrounding world, but with plenty of room to experience everything a wedding truly needs. Ron Riddle is an amazing Host. Every turn he is there to offer a helping hand. He will also go above and beyond to ensure your days goes smoothly. The house is a home for the bridal party for the weekend. The property serves not only to ceremony, tents, and BBQ's, but around every corner is a welcoming sitting corner for an escape or even a special photo. The Barn offers an open dance floor, enough electrical support for lighting and DJ's. The Barn can be turned quickly into a Dining area if the rains come in, and opens very quickly into a club setting for the dancing and drinks. This is a magical place that can help create such a personal experience for any that come.

    Beautiful Barn/Outdoor Wedding Venue and House for the Wedding Party

    We loved everything about Gratitude & Grace and are so happy that we had our wedding here. The barn and grounds are pretty and well maintained. There was both a lot of open space and nice little nooks, outdoors and in the barn, to take advantage of when designing the layout for the wedding, photographs, and the reception. The views of the surrounding countryside and big sky are amazing. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and asked how we found such a great place. The house on property, which has an attractive in ground pool and a hot tub, was beautiful and homey and provided lots of room for us and our wedding party to stay and get ready. The place was well stocked -- plenty of glasses for champagne toasts! The venue was easy to deal with during the planning phase of the wedding and the owner Ron was present during the wedding weekend and he is such a great host! He did everything he could to make sure we had a good stay at the house and a wonderful wedding day. We also hired Ron's band to play the wedding and they were awesome. One of the best decisions of our wedding planning was choosing this venue.
