Weddings, Receptions, and Parties

Joy Ranch is the perfect place for your special day! Whether it be a wedding, party, reception, or other gathering, Joy Ranch’s unique design will make your next event something folks will talk about long after the day is done.

Joy Ranch is a unique, family-friendly place for a destination wedding close to home. You can get married at sunset overlooking quiet Lyle Lake, or have a smaller wedding on the patio or fireside. Invite your guests to dance the night away under the timber trusses of the lake-view dining room.

There are a number of spaces that can be considered for a ceremony, and we invite you to come for a tour so you can begin to imagine what the right fit is for you. There are outdoor spaces to consider—a grassy knoll overlooking the lake, a large patio also with lake views, and “Main Street.” There is a restored prairie church, 100 guests maximum. There are a number of indoor spaces with variable seating capacities, and Joy Ranch staff would be happy to help you explore these options.
