    True Montanans

    Jack and Havila are an absolute delight to work with. Incredibly thoughtful, considerate, professional and thorough. Answered questions quickly and clearly, was willing to field questions from me and my mother. They took so much stress out of the day with upfront information, pre-planning, and such a genuine Montanan neighbor disposition. Their venue is beautiful, and they are an indispensable part of your wedding vendor team!

    Get Married Here! You won't regret it.

    Rugged Horizon is an AMAZING venue for so many reasons including location, price, amenities, etc., but I have to address the hosts. Jack and Havila made our choice of venue worth every penny. These two will stop at nothing to make your day particularly special. Our wedding took place at the end of May 2019 and in true MT fashion, the weather was spotty. We really wanted an outdoor ceremony with the reception taking place inside the barn. Jack and Havila ensured us that they would set up for an outdoor ceremony and would be willing to make the change to an indoor ceremony within an hour of the ceremony start time if the weather turned. Thankfully, the weather held up beautifully. Since the meadow location for the outdoor ceremony is a bit of a walk from the barn and parking area, Jack provides a ride on a golf cart to any wedding guests who cannot or choose not to make the walk to and from the meadow. Additionally, a few of our family members are gluten-free, but a gluten-free meal was not provided at our wedding (we served pizza). Instead, we bought a gluten-free pizza for the few family members who needed it and Havila prepared it just before the ceremony so that it was ready in time for the reception. Both Jack and Havila worked diligently throughout our day and leading up to it to ensure that everything went off without a hitch. Even after the wedding, Jack and Havila continued to bless us by sending us a thank you for choosing their venue and sending a Christmas card and thoughtful gift (a Christmas ornament commemorating our day at their beautiful venue). They went above and beyond any expectations I could have had as our venue hosts, and I would recommend Rugged Horizon to any bride, any day.
