Weddings at the Farm

Embracing the beauty of Montana.

We are excited to announce the newest wedding venue in Bozeman, Montana. Nestled up against the Gallatin Mountains and only a few short miles from town, Bodhi Farms offers the ultimate destination for your special day. With breathtaking canyon views and Cottonwood Creek cascading through the property, you’ll find yourself surrounded by nature with the convenience of modern day amenities.

We believe that our destination is ideal for the couple that wishes to host their special day surrounded by natural beauty, rustic elegance, and sustainable services... Getting married outdoors, alongside our incredible safari event tents in this beautiful canyon setting provides for a truly unmatched experience.  We offer three venues for private events:

The Backyard Event Park 

Our spacious event park is nestled along Cottonwood Creek and sits at the mouth of Cottonwood Canyon. With awe- inspiring views that embrace the beauty of Montana, this is an ideal spot for the larger celebrations.  This venue rental includes the Backyard catering kitchen, 3 restrooms (men's/women's/ADA) & a bar.  The Backyard has electricity & running water. This rental includes the 3 large event tipis, 2 small bride & groom tipis, a dance floor, basic lighting, tables & chairs. For more than 180 guests, you may opt to rent our sailcloth tent depending on your desired layout. Availability: late May - early October (all events must end by 11pm in this venue).

The Garden Table

Our Garden Table offers an intimate outdoor setting nestled in a beautiful Aspen Grove alongside a natural stream. This unique location is an ideal setting for a rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour or small wedding reception, complete with picnic tables and a chef's cooking station.  This space can accommodate up to 100 guests and comes with The Backyard Event Park for weddings as it's been a popular starting point for the ceremony procession. This venue does not yet have power or running water, but we do have quiet generators, a portable restroom and a hand washing station.  Availability: late May - early October (daytime weddings 10am-3pm // evening weddings with the Backyard 4pm-11pm); acoustic music only.

The Yoga Sanctuary

Our yoga sanctuary is available for private yoga sessions for the bride, the bride & groom or the whole wedding party! Or have your special day in this serene space alongside the creek.   This venue has a wood floor, electricity & basic lighting in the tipi. This space can accommodate up to 40 guests.  Availability: late May - early October (afternoon weddings 12pm-6pm); acoustic music only.

Nordic Tipis

A perfect match to our natural setting.

Our unique Nordic style tipis are made for this climate - sides up on summer days and sides down with clear walls when it's chilly.

About our Tipis: Each large tipi measures 33' in diameter and comfortably seats approximately 60 guests at 60" round tables.  The canvas keeps the water out while the de-barked natural wooden poles are cut from sustainable Norwegian forests without any chemicals.  The canvas was specifically manufactured to keep the rain out & the fire-retardant properties of the fabric do not degrade over time, ensuring the safety of you and your guests. The de-barked poles have a delightful natural look, avoiding any artificial staining or coloring common in processed timbers. 

 

The Backyard Event Park: We have three large tipis connected together in the Backyard from May through October, offering more space between for our wedding season. During the winter months, we will keep the three large tipis up but separated out to keep each tipi warm & cozy with our smokeless fire pits.  Our three tipis can comfortably accommodate 180 guests seated with covered space.    

The Yoga Shala: We have one large tipi with a wood floor that is used from May through October for yoga classes & smaller weddings and events.  The yoga tipi can comfortably accommodate 40 guests with tables set up for food service.

We also offer a 30 x 45 foot off-white sail cloth tent, which may be rented for larger events or for ceremonies during inclement weather.

Bride & Groom Tipis

A private space by the creek.

Our two private lounge tipis are set up for the wedding party to lounge & get ready for the big day in the Backyard Event Park. Each offers a private sitting area by the creek and look out to the ceremony site, yet are separated out in case the couple chooses to do a first look. Both are located close to the footbridge where guests enter & vehicles are parked. Each holds up to 20 people and are 24' in diameter. 

Bridal Tipi:  This tipi offers a wood floor and furnishings include a 60" table with a white linen tablecloth & 6 white chairs, a green velvet couch, a full length mirror, several small side tables, a white cowhide rug, electricity and a small fridge to keep your beverages and snacks cold.  

Groom Tipi:  This tipi offers a gravel flooring and furnishings include a 60" table with black linen tablecloth and 6 leather/cowhide chairs, a leather ottoman, two leather butterfly chairs, a full length mirror, small side wood tables, electricity and a small fridge to keep your beverages and snacks cold. 

These tipis are available May through October in the Backyard; these will be stored away during the winter months.
