Recommendations

Remote and Beautiful Wedding Venue - An Eventective User from Missoula, MT

When my then-fiance and I were looking at wedding venues, he recommended this place for our wedding, his having been to a friend's wedding that was here. I am so glad he recommended it! For me, the location was perfect: remote enough that the usual distraction of the internet could be forgotten and beautifully situated in a valley with tall trees and farmland surrounding it. Not only was the location amazing, the historical nature of the buildings was quite a draw for me. That I was contributing to the history of the place and helping keep it alive is something that I do not regret. Working with the people who care for the venue was simple and efficient. They were always prompt in replying to my emails (which there were many since I had not moved to Montana yet and was choosing a venue from the East Coast.) They were very friendly and easy to work with. Thank you so much! In summary: Why do I recommend this place? 1) Very affordable wedding venue. You need to have set up and clean up (delegation is key here), but less is sometimes more. 2) If you love nature and history, Nine Mile Community Center is the place to be! 3) The people who volunteer here are easy to work with and very friendly.

Really Recommend Nine Mile - An Eventective User from Huson, MT

Nine Mile was SUPER affordable for a wedding venue. They even accommodated our needs such as tables, chairs, space to park, space for the groomsmen and bridesmaids to get ready, and bathrooms. They are all volunteers and are so friendly and helpful. There's a pavilion and lots of space in the schoolhouse to move into in case the weather gets bad. There's even a bell to ring after you are married, which is a great addition. The location is also beautiful with a field, mountains, and a beautiful spot to watch the sunset.
