As soon as I came across this venue I quit looking. Lazy Bear Ranch is all we could have hoped to find in a venue and then some.
I truly believe there isn’t a place in the lower treasure valley that can rival Lazy Bear in beauty, amenities and value. If you’re a more formal bride don’t let yourself be turned off by the word “Ranch” in the title. No matter the wedding look you may be after, this venue is like that perfect outfit that can be dressed up or down to fit the most rustic affair or any formal black tie wedding, because Tim Wrightman has forgot nothing when building and designing his place.
When I first arrived I fell in love with the cozy outdoor patio; complete with a beautiful built in bar, outdoor fireplace, and the ever popular Edison lights were even strung above. Step inside the lodge and you know your groom and his men will be well occupied in the groom’s room, and your cake, beverages etc. will be well maintained until serving in the professional quality kitchen.
The bridal dressing room may be the best kept secret about this venue. My dress is exceptionally sentimental to me, and I really wanted an area where it could be displayed in order to capture beautiful photos of it, and this dressing room is nothing short of rustic elegance.
If you’re like me, and your entire wedding album is the highest priority for you, you can’t ask for more incomparable views than what Lazy Bear Ranch has to offer. I knew this place would be the most perfect backdrop for my fiancé and I’s most priceless memories to be captured, so much so that we even opted to have our engagements taken here as well.
The ceremony site options are vastly endless as well. Between the brand new lawn, tree tunnel, waterfall patio, and the pond I know I will have a hard time deciding where to actually get married. On a personal level, Tim Wrightman has been great to deal with. He personally contacted me within a day of reaching out, he was there to give us the complete tour of the acreage, help with engagement photos, and he’s always made himself available whenever we’ve needed to stop by the venue.
My entire wedding planning process has been so easy and stress free and I feel that’s all in part to finding quality vendors. Tim and his ranch definitely fit that mold and I truly cannot wait to be married there next September.
