The most beautiful mountain venue, ever!
Upon the venue cancelling, we found the Woodlands. And what a find it was!!! This venue honestly worked out better than my original plan. Elsa and her team are the BEST. They made the entire event perfect and easy, not to mention they are great communicators! This venue is BEAUTIFUL and has something for every type of guest. Indoor facility, outdoor facility, lawn, trees, concrete, dance floor, it has it ALL. Look no further if you are looking to plan a wedding in Bozeman, MT. This venue is BEAUTIFUL.
All the Wildwood rentals she helped choose and setup for us looked beautiful, and added to the space and decor. I didn’t have a bridal party to put to work, but Elsa handled everything I could’ve needed. As I was about to walk out to the meadow my veil came off, and Elsa quickly helped me reattach it—and crisis averted. I’m sure she handled so many other things behind the scenes that I wasn’t even aware of, and I’m so thankful for that! Everyone says there’s going to be something “wrong” happen on the wedding day but as far as I’m aware it was perfect—exactly as I could have imagined.
Elsa worked so well with all of our vendors, and helped guide family and friends throughout the day so everyone knew what they had to do and where to go. She had so many lovely ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of. And she truly made our wedding vision come to life. It is a well oiled machine at the Woodlands.
We and all of our guests are from the Chicagoland area—this was a destination wedding for us, so it was extra helpful to have someone on site who knew what to do. But even if you live closeby, have a bridal party, or are super organized, I would still highly recommend to have Elsa coordinate. She has a calm and collected demeanor, which helped any nerves I had and made me feel confident everything was handled. She made sure me and Eddie had lots of moments to ourselves so that we could soak up the day together and breathe.
Our wedding truly was the best day of our lives, and we couldn’t be more thankful to Elsa and the Woodlands team for making our dream day happen!
