    My husband and I were overjoyed with our wedding at Summer Star Ranch. Starr and Matt were easy to work with from another state, and were even MORE helpful with getting everything ready day of. The venue is gorgeous with wonderful views of the mountains and the Helena valley beyond. All of our guests were able to get to the ceremony area (even those with a walker) and then enjoy the reception tent. The wedding parties had a great time getting ready onsite with the glamping tent and cabin. We also truly enjoyed the night of accommodation. Matt and Starr had everything we needed at the venue which made it easy for us and our vendors. We would highly recommend having a wedding here. Thank you for our perfect day!

    SO thankful I chose to have my wedding at Summer Star. Matt and Starr were with us every single step of the way making it as easy as possible. The day of the wedding, Matt was around all day taking care of things in the background so we wouldn't have to worry about it. Not to mention, the venue is heavenly.

    The summer star ranch provides the best service of any Helena-area wedding venue. They provide lots of equipment you’d have to rent anywhere else. Starr is very attentive both months before the wedding and the day of.

    We are so glad that we chose Summer Star Ranch for our wedding! It is so beautiful up there, the amenities are numerous and it really saved us a lot of work (renting tents, tables, outhouses etc) to have our wedding there. Matt and Starr were so helpful and such nice people! Our guest were all so impressed with the venue and we got so many compliments. They are very laid back and will bend over backward to help you with anything you need! We are so happy!

    Summer Star Ranch could not have been a more perfect fit for my brother's reception! Our family and friends are spread across the U.S. and none of us live in Montana. When searching for a venue, we came across Summer Star Ranch which not only looked beautiful, but included so many amenities and options with their facility. Starr & Matt were such a pleasure to work with - they were responsive, flexible and very knowledgeable about their offerings as well as other vendors in the area. I work in events myself and had very high expectations, all of which were met and exceeded! I would recommend Summer Star Ranch to anyone especially if planning from out of state as they were so reliable throughout the whole process. Five Stars for Summer Star Ranch!!

    Summer Star Ranch was a dream to be married at. My now husband and I thought it was one of those rare finds that had zero drawbacks. It's affordable, unique, beautiful, and Matt and Starr were a JOY to work with. They answered every question we had, gave wonderful recommendations, and just overall made us feel welcome and taken so well care of. We both walked away feeling like it was our dream wedding, we were so happy how it went and enjoyed using the cabin and glamping tent to get ready. We also planned everything from several states away which can of course make things more difficult, but no problems were had. During the big day they attended to us and made sure everything went as planned. Matt even helped our guest fix a flat tire when their child was having an allergic reaction and needed to get back for medicine. They asked us to thank Matt for his help that night! I can't recommend this venue enough. Before we chose this venue we spoke to several other couples who had been married there to see how it went and they all felt the same way we do now. We are even hoping to make Summer Star Ranch a spot we come back to occasionally since the ranch was so off the beaten path and we'd love to stay and get a horse ride in one of these days! Thanks again to Matt, Starr, and Julie for being the best.

    Summer Star Ranch was absolutely amazing. The ranch made planning so very easy and Matt and Starr are so easy to contact when you need them! The ranch is so beautiful and the cabin for the bride and groom could not be more perfect! I would not have chosen anywhere else to have my wedding. I am so very thankful for the ranch and helping me have the very best wedding!

    Originally we had booked a different venue for our wedding but it wasn’t going to work for our guest count. As luck would have it we found Summer Star Ranch. Changing venues was the best decision we made.

    Five stars doesn’t seem like enough. Summer Star Ranch is the most amazing venue. It’s gorgeous and perfect for a beautiful wedding. However, what really makes the venue is the spectacular owners and team that run the ranch. Working in the event industry I know that the venue employees can make or break your event. Starr, Matt, Laura, and Kelly were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was everything we wanted. Answering numerous questions, helping to problem solve, and allowing us to come to the property on multiple occasions to look at the venue as we went through the planning process. They could not have been more kind, professional, and caring. They truly care about you and they want you to get married at their property and have a fantastic day. It’s so much more than just a business to them. They also give back to our local community and to us that means everything. If you’re lucky enough to happen upon the ranch for your special day - book it. It’s the best wedding decision you’ll make and it’s worth every penny.

    Starr and Matt are two of the nicest people we've ever met. From day 1 when we were researching venues to the day of they were kind, helpful, responsive, and went above and beyond in all aspects. We had the perfect day and weekend thanks to Starr and Matt at the ranch!! Can't wait to go back and utilize the cabin and horseback riding soon. Thank you!!!

    We had an amazing time at the Summer Star Ranch for our family Reunion. The staff were extremely helpful in making our time there perfect! We all went on a horse back trail ride and not all of us had ridden a horse before. Even with our novice riders, and we had one rider that was very nervous, Matt and Starr took great care in explaining and walking everyone through on what to do with the horses. The horses themselves were gorgeous and well behaved. They took really good care of all of us riders and the views were AMAZING! Just could not have been any better. Mountains and wild flowers as far as we could see on all sides. The perfect place to reconnect with family and what is important in life. We really appreciate Matt and Starr and all that they did to make our stay wonderful! We look forward to making this a tradition and getting to come back year after year!

    Amazing, gorgeous, perfect! Just a few of the words to describe our wedding at the Summer Star Ranch. Matt, Starr, and Laura came to our rescue when we lost our venue four months before our 5-20-17 wedding. After losing you venue so close to your wedding you feel defeated and in complete panic mode. Starr and Laura eased all of my concerns and we knew this was the venue we were meant to have.

    One hour before the ceremony it started raining, and, of course, we had originally planned an outdoor ceremony. Matt and his team were so amazing! They kept me calm and quickly moved the entire ceremony inside the reception tent which was just as beautiful. Oh, and not to mention my father ended up in the ER the morning of and Matt offered to drive into town and pick him up to ensure he made it to the ceremony and then drive him home after. The team at Summer Star Ranch are absolutely amazing, and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure you have an absolutely perfect day. We did and we wouldn't change a single thing.

    Our guests loved everything about the Summer Star Ranch from the beautiful setting to the fully functional outhouses. It truly is where city chic meets the wild west. And if rain on your wedding day is good luck then we are set for life! Thank you all so much for everything you did to give us the most perfect day!

    Getting married at the Summer Star Ranch was by far the best decision I could have made for my wedding. I was hesitant at first, when my fiancé suggested it, but our NYC guests were floored by the exquisite combination of elegance and wild west. I had Starr handle all of the planning and she has such beautiful and imaginative taste. All of the vendors she used were top notch and very professional. She created a uniquely romantic and enjoyable event for us! Truly unforgettable for us, and our guests!

    This vendor is fabulous. They take care of everything from start to finish. The setting is one of the most beautiful I've seen, the food was top notch, and the people were the best part. I've never been treated better. We will be returning to Summer Star Ranch for our Anniversary! I highly recommend them.

    Beautiful venue and exceptional service! If I had to choose between the Summer Star Ranch and any other location, the Summer Star Ranch would undoubtedly win. Starr and Matt are so personable and helpful and took the time to make sure every detail that we wanted was covered. All of the guest were blown away by the setting and beautiful sights surrounding the property. 10 out of 10, and absolutely no regrets in choosing the Summer Star Ranch. Do yourselves a favor and give them a call because you're MUCH better off with them as opposed to most other venues.

    We had an unbelievable experience at The Summer Star Ranch. Starr and Matt made planning our wedding so enjoyable. The special attention they paid to every single detail shined throughout the entire weekend. Our guests were so happy horseback riding, fly fishing, riding ATVs and hiking during the day. The Bbq we had the night before the wedding was so much fun, our guests learned to square dance, ate delicious food and we all enjoyed the wonderful country band they recommended. Our wedding was truly breathtaking...the setting pristine...the decor was absolutely beautiful, we still can't get over it. All
    Of our guests danced the night away. We want to thank Starr and Matt at the Summer Star Ranch for the wedding of our dreams.
