Moose Creek Ranch is Teton Valley’s premier venue for outdoor/barn weddings and receptions. We have the ability to accommodate your guests with both indoor and outdoor options, including two ceremony sites to choose from.

The Moose Creek Ranch barn is the perfect place to dance the night away with family and friends and retire to a bonfire under the stars. The main lodge features a fireplace room, pool table room, Bride and Groom dressing rooms and a catering kitchen. We have a dining room for you to set up and decorate as you like. We also offer plenty of lawn area for lawn games as well as horseback riding on site.

Picture your ceremony with the sound of Moose Creek and the scenic pond as a backdrop. We are also able to accommodate magical winter weddings.

We are located 22 miles from downtown Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on the Greater Yellowstone Loop. We are a dog-friendly facility. (Please see dog policies.)

Most wedding parties host their rehearsal dinner/welcome BBQ on the first day of the venue rental and their wedding and reception on the following day. Some even squeeze in a brunch to wrap up their wedding weekend as they check out.

This unique facility and our affordable wedding packages make wedding planning easy and provide a central venue for your guests and family.

The venue fees vary depending on length of time at the venue, the number of guests, time of year, mid-week or weekend. (Please call for a quote.)

We offer mid-week weddings and off-season events with a discounted venue price. It allows you that summer or winter wedding in the Tetons with an eye towards your budget. Off-season venue rates are in effect Oct 15th – May 20th.

You are welcome to provide your own food and alcohol.

Included in the venue rental are 12 60-inch round tables each accommodating eight guests, four 8-ft banquet tables, 5 high-top tables, and 125 chairs. Moose Creek has many decorative items for your event available at no additional cost—this can be a real budget saver.

Our manager, Jeanette Beard, is very helpful in seeking out quality local vendors for your wedding or event.  Moose Creek Ranch will put up and take down your tables and chairs for a small fee. 

  • Excerpt from The Knot
    The barn is already decorated (it even has an amazing wooden bar and hay bales for inside seating), and the property alone is just stunning. With the rental of this venue, you are able to block out lodging for your guests and use the entire property and it’s amenities.

    The other sites we looked at required tents, bathrooms, electricity, etc. and Moose Creek Ranch did not. It’s setup for weddings and large parties as is.

    Jeanette was very good to work with and she was there on the day of our wedding making sure that we had all that we needed and was very helpful and willing to do anything that we needed her to do. She saved us on several items that we neglected to get. Thanks Jeanette!
