    Perfect Montana Wedding Venue

    Summer Star Ranch was super accommodating to our needs leading up to our wedding, answering all our questions promptly and offering suggestions when needed. The venue itself was the perfect place for our wedding, I loved that it was happily tucked in the forest. Our out of country and state guests were super impressed.
