Recently I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at the gorgeous Chateau Event Center just outside of Bozeman. And I have to say, the venue was LOVELY.
If you're looking to book a cozy, intimate, and unique wedding venue, I'd say that the Chateau Event Center is definitely a venue you should strongly consider.
The Chateau Event Center is unique because it has managed to stay away from super trendy designs and rather hosts a timeless atmosphere that will be in style yesterday, today and in 20 years. I've never been to a wedding venue quite like this one. With a very Montana-esque cabin for getting ready and hosting indoor receptions, it offers more than a trendy white-washed building with minimalistic decor. It offers a rustic and whimsical interior with a suprising amount of space, charm, and character.
I also, as a photographer, was obsessed with the bride's gettting ready room. It was absolutely stunning with large windows offering great lighting and dreamy drapes that also provided privacy.
When you walk outside you are greeted in a mostly private woods (a very few neighbors in the far distance) where a very short walk away and over the most fun little bridge is an outdoor area for outdoor ceremonies.
You can tell that the owners care for their venue and clients by the way that everything was cleaned so well, and by how manicured the outdoor areas were. They also hung up several outdoor string lights to add to the charm.
The location of Cheateau Event Center is also ideal. It's a short 15 minute drive (tops) from Bozeman which offers plenty of entertainment and things to do and is also 15 minutes from the airport in Belgrade. So if you have out of town guests, they have a very close airport, plenty of entertainment, as well as several areas to find an Airbnb or hotel.
Here's a little taste of what your wedding could like at the Chateau Event Center. For context this wedding took place in November and was a cloudy day.
