The Ponds At Dry Creek Bozeman Wedding Venue

Charming Authenticity

The Ponds at Dry Creek is a breathtaking outdoor venue in Belgrade, Montana and was an easy choice to include on our best wedding venues list. Set against the gorgeous backdrop of mountain views, these rolling green grounds are dotted with serene ponds and vibrant water features. Clusters of forestry line the waterlines, providing shade, serenity, and stunning ceremony spaces! The rustic charm of this outdoor site brings a timeless, down-to-earth feel to any wedding. Paired with the modernity of the water features, a wedding at The Ponds combines the old and new to welcome your marriage into the world.

Local History

This Belgrade wedding venue is run by a local family, the Hamiltons. Partners Doug and Mary have spent many years preserving the site’s stunning natural beauty. The recent landscaping and water feature construction have been part of their mission to maintain the gorgeous site. They are some of the kindest people I have ever met and couples consistently rave about them.

Venue Features

Set in the center of the Ponds at Dry Creek, the “Big Top” pavilion offers a covered outdoor space to host your ceremony. This 2,400 square foot shelter is strung with stunning, simple light fixtures, illuminating your big moment with grace. The delicate scene easily complements any wedding theme and provides an intimate, loving air. Next to the pavilion is a 1,100 square foot deck, lined with quality wood. This space will be yours to use as you see fit; either as a dance floor, uncovered ceremony area, or anything else you can think of. For a fully outdoor wedding, there are many water features dotting the grounds that make a gorgeous ceremony backdrop.

Also on-site, perfect for preparation, are separate preparation centers for the bride and groom. These facilities provide comfortable, spacious spaces for each side of the couple to get ready for their big moment, in the company of their loved ones and friends. Each center is roomy enough to easily fit wedding parties, parents, friends, and other important people. In addition to dressing areas and restrooms, these spaces also have rooms for lounging and bonding before the ceremony.

Perfect for those staying for a weekend are the three furnished cabins on the venue grounds. These cabins, delightfully decorated with rustic charm, provide space for a small party to stay for the weekend package. Couples can also take advantage of them to get a head start on their honeymoon!
