The Union Pacific Dining Lodge was the perfect venue for our dream wedding. The Groom is from Montana and my family is mostly from the East Coast - so it was really amazing to be close to the entrance to Yellowstone.Sent on 10/01/2019
The venue itself is huge, definitely can fit a wedding of over 400 but our wedding was 150ish and we felt cozy but not swimming in the venue. In the larger room there is a huge fireplace that you can have going. Additionally, there is a smaller room (the Firehole) that we used for cocktails and has a bar area and another fireplace.
Additional items to note: cute little bridal suite, huge kitchen with everything your caterer needs, almost every type of glasses for the bar (we brought mason jars for beers). Also, all the tables and chairs are provided, including cocktail tables. Rentals are where they get you! So this was perfect for our budget.
The pricing includes 48 hours of use, so we used the venue for the rehearsal dinner too. The staff are easy to work with and will make sure you have everything you need!
The only con is that the venue is not insulated. It's an old building and has a few heaters but we also brought our own electric heaters. We had our wedding on Sept 28 and it snowed and was 30 degrees most of the weekend. But surprisingly we were not cold at all :)
Truly one of the most unique wedding venues around. This place has incredible history and a perfect location for an excursion to Yellowstone National Park. Their main hall is massive....like half a football field in size! You could feed an army on one end and not move any tables for the dance after. The crown jewel though is the immense fireplace at the end of the main hall. You can literally walk into it! Worth a visit just to see the amazing engineering it must have taken to build.
