What our guests are saying

“My husband and I found out about Tatanka Ranch when we went to a friend's wedding a few year's back. Right then, I knew this was the place for us! The cabins are so inviting for all of our family traveling from all over the United States to celebrate with us. All of the cabins were so cute & clean and made our families feel right at home and comfortable the entire weekend. They made every experience of our wedding planning and wedding weekend flow so smoothly. The whole crew out there goes all hands on deck to make sure my husband and I were not stressed or worried about a thing. I absolutely recommend Tatanka Ranch to anyone that wants a rustic, stress-free and gorgeous wedding!”

“This ranch was beautiful and accommodated all of my wedding needs. 50 of my guests were able to stay with me overnight. Friday we had a fire pit and live music for our guests and on Saturday morning my guests were able to horseback ride. Everyone had a blast and it was a perfect wedding weekend.”

“Tatanka Ranch is absolutely beautiful and Sandy and Niki are seriously the most amazing wedding planners I could ever ask for. They took our ideas and went above and beyond what we asked for and made our day absolutely perfect! I had always been told that wedding planning was very stressful, especially the few days before the wedding, but my experience was the exact opposite. Sandy and Niki took care of everything and it allowed me to have so much more time to spend with friends and family that I don't get to see often. Mindy, the chef, is amazing and made delicious food for our wedding. It was so nice finding a venue that not only accommodated for the ceremony and reception but also gave us a place for the entire wedding party and family to spend the weekend together in quaint little cabins. If you choose Tatanka Ranch as your venue you will not be disappointed! The staff is top notch!!”

Thank you for making our wedding weekend priceless!”
