There is something ageless and chic about weddings at Bozeman’s landmark property. From the central location to the dramatic interiors, The Baxter has been the center for weddings and special lifetime events for over 80 years. Located at the heart of Bozeman, the locally owned and operated building provides an unrivaled destination for life’s most important events.
The hotel’s rich architecture provides a unique and perfect backdrop for creating lasting memories. Guests are astonished upon entering the award-winning original 1929 Art Deco two-story lobby with charming chandeliers and terrazzo flooring. The sweeping staircase leading to the Mezzanine provides for a glamorous entrance to the couple’s ideal wedding.
The Baxter’s Grand Ballroom provides an unmatched setting for a sophisticated and intimate wedding celebration. Complete with a flexible floor plan and one-of-a-kind vintage charm, our National Historic Landmark is affordable with everything you need on-site in one convenient location. The décor is elegant enough to stand on its own, yet neutral enough to customize to suit the style of your day.
Located 15 minutes south of Bozeman, Cottonwood Creek Ranch is a 270-acre working ranch with an active wildlife migration corridor. When your guests arrive, they will walk along a path through the trees and over a bridge to a gorgeous meadow revealing the wedding arch perfectly situated along Cottonwood Creek.
There is something enchanting about exchanging vows under the shaded trees alongside the majestically flowing creek. Enjoy a reception on top of the open hayfield where your guests enjoy panoramic views of the picturesque surroundings and the breathtaking sunset. This dramatic vantage point sets the stage for a night full of love and laughter as you dance the night away under the stars.
