My best friend got married here recently and it was the most magical, perfect location for a wedding.

Walt was not only the owner of the place but was essentially a wedding planner, as well. He said he'd been doing this for 18 years and you could tell he knew how to plan a wedding! He was very thorough with all the details and the bride and groom were so happy to have him throughout the process.

The location itself is gorgeous. Guests can walk in and stroll through the garden on the way to the altar. And best of all, there was a bridal house for the bride and her bridesmaids to hang out in, get ready and wait until the actual ceremony. It was really nice to sit in there and take tons of pictures while we waited!

By the time the ceremony started the garden was perfectly shaded and afterwards the reception started in another building on the property which was equally as beautiful. All in all it's a great one-stop location to have your entire wedding!

A photographers dream. The impeccable landscaping and wide range of plants and flowers makes for a pristine setting suitable for any event you could imagine. The inside dining area serves perfectly as a reception area for a wedding, anniversary or birthday. If you're in Billings, definitely consider this place for your next event. Nothing short of beautiful.

My friends got married here a couple weekends ago. It is a beautiful setting for wedding. The gardens helped create a unique and private feeling for the ceremony and reception.

The guys have done a nice job landscaping this place. I was in a wedding here years back. It is a nice place for things like that.

The gardens were beautiful and very well maintained. I recommend going at different times of the year as different flowers are always blooming. I also recommend going on a weekday either in the early morning or later afternoon. You will miss the crowds and the events for the most part. One can also make a reservation for a ''lunch experience'' on some days of the week every week (not sure which). This lunch comes with a tour of the gardens as well as some of the DanWalt famous, homemade cheesecake.

What takes this place over the top, though, is the owners. True, we visited during a very slow time, but Dan, one of the owners, spent much time chatting with us, telling us the history of the grounds and interacting with our children. He even brought out some baby ducks for the kids to pet. We brought a picnic, which was a great idea. Just a really pleasant afternoon at the gardens. We will be back!
