Dean & Gwen Venue Owners,

Gwen handles the Event Styling and Coordination Dean handles landscape and prop construction

I (Gwen) started our venue in California 8 years ago to promote our family ran cattle ranch and teach the importance of the beef industry. I absolutely love the challenge and the creativity of taking a raw space and making it beautiful. I love interior and event design as well as floral design. We decided to move to Montana for our children and want to raise them in a smaller community like when we were kids. 

Dean recently retired and loves the great out doors anything I ask him for help whether it be an arbor or a new fence he jumps right in and is very creative and super hardworking. We look forward to sharing our property with you and hope that you feel a since of home comfort when visiting whether it be for a day or a week.

Hey there! I'm Jessyka. I was born and raised in a small community in Northern, CA. The same small town my parents grew up in. The best part about our little community is, it was the same one my husband grew up in, so it was a match for us from the start. From a young age I was taught to to be creative, use my imagination, and dream BIG! This allowed me to believe anything was possible, big or small, and all I had to do was never give up on that dream.   

 

When our family moved to Hamilton, MT, I knew that the breathtaking mountain ranges and natural beauty of the outdoors made me want to get married all over again. It helped me to identify to true passions I had to help others, flowers, and being able to take the lead for events and gatherings I had done throughout my life. Allowing me to help others turn visions of their special wedding day into a reality was now possible. 

 

My purpose is to spread love, inspire others, and build confidence in the ones around me.  I want to teach my sons that no dream is ever too big for them to achieve, because God has a plan for each of us - and His purpose for us is far greater than we could ever image.
