We cannot say enough great things about Mountainside Weddings! As wedding photographers we always look for vendors to work alongside that serve and treat their couples like gold, while also providing an amazing, first-rate experience, and Lorraine, Dave, and the staff at Mountainside do exactly that. If you are local to Montana or looking for a destination wedding at an intimate, beautiful venue in the woods, we cannot recommend Mountainside Weddings enough! They are one of the best in the business and in the state! Another bonus is their proximity to Glacier National Park. We can't think of a more perfect pairing!
Lorraine, Dave, and the rest of the Mountainside Weddings Team were wonderful to work with. They made all our dreams come true. Our wedding was a bit untraditional, but they worked with us and made our vision a reality. The Mountainside Weddings team did a fabulous job decorating the venue with the things I provided, and their immense selection of items. Lorraine even took some decorations out of her house to complete my vision!Lorraine took a great deal of time communicating with us on the details and continued to provide us with solutions on making the day a success. Mountainside Weddings was very accommodating with our vendors and allowing us to hold our reception dinner at the pavilion the night before the wedding.Animals mean a lot to my husband and I, and Lorraine did not hesitate to allow me to incorporate them into our big day. Lorraine and her team even pulled some strings to get horses to the property because she knew I could not trailer mine!Our guests had nothing but great things to say about Mountainside Weddings and the beauty of the venue. We would highly recommend Mountainside Weddings for your special day.
My daughters wedding at Mountainside was truly dreamy! The rehearsal dinner was also held on the property and we really loved having everything in one place! The grounds are the most beautiful I’ve seen and all our guest really raved about the ceremony and the awesome cocktail party lawn by the pond.The owners work really hard on maintaining the grounds and the lovely bridal house. It’s so convenient and easy to let Lorraine and her staff do their magic. I rented a vintage sofa for picture opportunities and Lorraine made a whole beautiful “lounge” for us with her own personal touches such as rugs and cocktail tables, it was so much fun and she definitely took it to another level. We had a 100 guests and I think the pavillion is a perfect space for that size wedding.The bridal house is so lovely and beautifully decorated, that my advice before anyone in your party leaves on Sunday, is to find Lorraine and do a walk through with her to make sure you do not forget anything and all is how you found it.
Fairytales can come true! Our daughter had a picture perfect weekend for her wedding here!! Everyone was so impressed with the venue! It was great and Lorraine and all were so attentive and wonderful to work with. Thanks for making such an important step in their lives perfect! My daughter and her fiancé took care of the cost so I don’t know about the value-they are a more mature couple, first marriage for both and it fit in their budget. WE ALL LOVED IT!
My wedding at Mountainside was literally a dream come true for my wife and me!The owners, Lorraine and Dave are two of the most amazing people that I have ever met and I am so happy to now call them friends.The entire venue is absolutely beautiful no matter which direction you look. The landscaping is incredible along with the dozens of places on the property that you can hold a ceremony. The pavilion is a great size and makes for the perfect place to have a fun reception. It looks even more beautiful at night when the lights are on. Not only is the outside beautiful, the bridal house is one of the nicest places that we’ve ever stayed. It was super convenient having the house right there for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. The groom’s tent was perfect for me and the guys to hangout and get into our suits. We had a blast hanging out over there.Overall, Mountainside is where dreams can be made into reality! I would recommend it to anyone looking to have an unforgettable wedding in one of the most beautiful places in the world. ❤️ 🏔
As a photographer who has photographed a wedding at Mountainside Weddings, I felt compelled to write a great review after my experience! The owners were very involved and made sure everything was perfect and ran on time as much as possible. They were extremely friendly, accommodating and professional. The photos also turned out marvelous!
Mountainside Weddings is what your Montana wedding dreams are made of! My husband and I live in ND but we wanted to be married in the mountains in MT we looked at every single venue in MT but NOTHING compared to Mountainside. The property is breath taking and there are several locations where you can have your ceremony, the pavilion is perfect, the bridal suite is amazing and they even have a groomsmen tent!Not only is the location dreamy but Lorraine and David were INCREDIBLE to work with they were extremely responsive and went above and beyond with guiding me through the entire process and referring me to vendors and ensuring that our day ran as smoothly as possible. Lorraine has a team of decorators that came in and set up the entire ceremony and reception we didn’t have to lift a finger.Everything was better than what I envisioned or thought we wanted. I literally cannot say enough about this place they made the day I have always dreamed of PERFECT and we are forever grateful for this amazing team.
We booked our wedding with Lorraine and Dave last summer for our wedding next summer. I can tell you that they are the sweetest and nicest people ever. They are detail oriented. They take your vision and build on it. They have allowed us to come up to the property twice and the second time Lorraine designed center pieces for me. I know Lorraine, Dave, and there team are going to take care of us and all the details. I have no words for how incredible this property is and how amazing the people whose heart and souls go into every wedding are. This is the best venue in Montana. If you want to have a beautiful wedding, book with Mountainside.
First off, if I could rate Mountainside Weddings a thousand stars, I totally would. My husband and I got married at Mountainside Weddings in September 2020 and had the most most magical day of our lives. It wasn't just magical because of the stunning views the venue has, but it was magical because the owners, Lorraine and Dave, were the most kind-hearted and welcoming people to us and our families. My husband and I got married in Montana, traveling from a different state. We chose Montana because we met there and wanted to get married in a place that we hold near and dear to our hearts. Not only is Whitefish the most gorgeous backdrop for a wedding, but Lorraine and Dave's 20+ acres has everything you could ever dream of for a wedding in the mountains. As an out-of-state bride, I was concerned about planning a wedding so far from home, but Lorraine was with me every step of the way. Not only did she provide most of the decor for our wedding with their on-site decor store, but her team took care of set-up, clean up, and everything in between- things I didn't want to have to worry about coming from out-of-state. My bridal party and I stayed onsite the night before the wedding in the most GORGEOUS four-bedroom bridal suite I have ever seen. Staying onsite allowed my girls and I to wake up the next morning super relaxed while we got ready. Lorraine and her team made this the most fun wedding experience I could have ever imagined. She and her husband were incredibly gracious and so accommodating to all of our needs. They truly cared about what we wanted our wedding day to look like and were so creative in making every detail of our vision come to life. They put their hearts and souls into all of the couples they host at their venue. There aren't enough words to express our gratitude to Mountainside Weddings for such a beautiful wedding experience.
I have worked as a vendor (AV Rental) for Mountainside Weddings on numerous occasions. From my end of things, this property, and the people who operate it are top notch. Lorraine and Dave are willing to bend over backward to help if something is amiss and you couldn't ask for a more picturesque setting to hold your special day.Top notch stuff.
Where to begin. My fiance and I had planned our wedding for August 1st, at a vineyard in San Diego, California a year ago. When COVID happened, weddings became illegal in CA, and we had to move it to Montana where we live A MONTH BEFORE OUR WEDDING.🤯 Stressful. We toured 7 venues in a week all over the state of Montana. Finding Lorraine and Dave at Mountainside was every prayer answered.They were two of the most selfless and kind people we had ever met. They wanted to do everything to make our day as special as it could be--and it was. Now I can't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else. The property is absolutely breathtaking, Dave and Lorraine's attention to detail is truly unmatched. I moved my wedding in a month, and I can tell you I was the most relaxed I could be the days leading up to the wedding because we were in such good hands.Dave drove us all over to different locations for photos, Lorraine set up all of our decor, they brought us mimosas, charcuterie boards, they helped manage the bar, they delegated at our rehearsal, Dave set up our ceremony, and made us our own custom corn hole set, they set up a s'mores station, they communicated to ALL of our vendors and helped us navigate finding all of them in less than a month. The list goes ON. We felt SO valued by them. They are one of the largest reasons why our wedding was so perfect. The property speaks for itself. It is STUNNING.I never write reviews, but thought everyone deserves a wedding like this.
Gorgeous environment, venue is surrounded in nature. It's fairly large. I came for a wedding and when I arrived I was met with a golf cart by the owner and ushered to the event. The owners were very kind and took me to and from the venue to my car as needed and each time we had a nice conversation. The set up was very quaint and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and felt safe with their precautions in regards to masks and cleaning between people. Would recommend for a private event.
The location was perfect, lots of areas for photographs, all of the staff were very kind and friendly. Not the best cell service but in my opinion thats a plus it gets the guests to interact more. Definitely look into for yourself
Wow, freaking wow. I cannot believe what Lorraine and her awesome hubby have done to this place. The bridal suite is the stuff of dreams. They are so sweet to work with and work so hard to make sure your wedding is perfect. I’ve so enjoyed working with them!!
Dave and Lorraine took our version for our wedding and ran with it! And it came out so beautiful and perfect ❤️ the day of our wedding some intense family things came up and they went above and beyond to help us. We are extremely grateful for them and all that they did for us! People our still talking about how incredible our wedding was and it's a month pass now. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a venue!!! We wish we could get married over and over!! Thank you Dave and Lorraine for making our biggest day of our lives the most perfect one ❤️
Mountainside weddings is the perfect spot for a wedding, Lorraine and Dave are great people who bend over backwards to make your day the best day ever! Our wedding was amazing and the people who attended our wedding agreed they still can't stop talking about it (5 weeks later) being the best destination, the decorations, lights, property, veiw, I mean everything down to the golf cart rides to and from the parking lot to help our guest's. We very highly recommend EVERYONE to mountainside weddings, with them your not just booking the location, you're booking the whole wedding experience (package) my husband and I will be going back for an anniversary 😃😍
My husband and I got married at Mountainside in June of 2019 and it was an AMAZING experience. Lorraine and Dave went above and beyond to make it such a memorable weekend for us and our guests. They’ve done a great job of enhancing the property’s natural beauty and creating a peaceful atmosphere.From my initial phone call with Lorraine I could tell how detail oriented she is, organized, and how passionate she is about her job which held true throughout the entire 9 months of working with her. She is very responsive and has such a beautiful vision for the property.Booking our wedding at Mountainside alleviated so much stress for us. The venue provided tables, chairs, linens, decorations, ceremony benches, serve ware, a bridal house, grooms area, etc. so I wasn’t having to outsource to find these items or worry about finding a place to get ready off site.When selecting our venue, one of our main criteria was that all our guests and vendors would be comfortable. Lorraine and Dave built a brand new bridal house, added a parking lot, restrooms, ran a golf cart shuttle, and made updates to the property to make sure that it was accommodating for everyone. When it cooled down they started up a bon fire and had stylish heaters for under the pavilion. The venue was perfect for all 200 guests.Another reason why I loved this venue is that we had access to it all weekend. The night before the wedding we hosted a large rehearsal dinner so we could include all of our extended families that traveled from out of town. We were very grateful to have a space that we could all be together.On the day of the wedding, Lorraine and Dave handled all of the setup. I was so AMAZED with how beautiful everything looked (see pictures below). The morning of the wedding they also spoiled us with a delicious charcuterie board and fun drinks. Because of Lorraine and Dave, we were able to relax and truly enjoy every minute of our wedding weekend.I could go on and on …. With all of that said I would highly recommend booking your wedding at Mountainside. You will be glad that you did :) Here are a few photos of our wedding so you can see more of the venue and GORGEOUS bridal house they just built!
We got married here on 6/29/19 after a long search for the perfect venue. Nestled in the trees near Whitefish, the location includes a beautiful pond, large timber framed pavilion, several great backdrops for the ceremony, a bride’s house, and a “glamping” style tent for the groomsmen. The grounds are stunning with lush greenery, mature trees, rocky outcroppings, and wildflowers everywhere. Mountainside Weddings was flawless and truly extraordinary. “Most beautiful wedding ever” was echoed by our guests over and over, thanks in large part to the amazing setting and facilities that Mountainside Weddings offers.The attention to detail, flexibility, and obvious care that the owners, Dave and Lorraine Wilson, bring to the table was the proverbial icing on the cake. As new owners of the venue, they had grand visions of things they wanted to change and add when we toured the property in October 2018. They delivered on every promise and more by our wedding in June 2019 which is remarkable! They were wonderful to interact with all throughout the planning process and helped us visualize and execute our dream wedding. From the decor they have available for use, to the rustic farmhouse-style table options, to pristinely cared for grounds, we felt beyond lucky to have discovered such a full-service venue. We were able to stay onsite in their stunning new bride’s house and fully enjoy the weekend due to the tireless efforts of Dave and Lorraine. From setting up our rehearsal dinner and wedding, to tearing down our Sunday morning brunch, they bent over backwards to make our weekend unforgettable and allow us and our families to relax and enjoy the experience. We truly can’t thank them enough for the hospitality, care, and professionalism they showed. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn’t look anywhere else!
We were a little nervous because the venue change hands shortly after we booked. However Mountainside Weddings definitely exceeded expectations and made our day amazing. The owners are great people and are beyond helpful. From rehearsal to getting ready the morning of they addressed any concerns and took great measures to make sure we were relaxed before our ceremony. Multiple people told us it’s was the best wedding they’ve attended. Fantastic venue and owners!
My son got married here recently and everything about this place exceeded my expectations! The staff are incredible to work with. The site itself is beautifully landscaped. The pavilion and guest house are well designed. All in all, after looking for a year, this is by far the best wedding venue we found.
This venue is located of I-93 near Tally Lake in Kootenai National Forest. Here, you will be surrounded by four national parks and some of the best natural spaces the US has to offer.
