The U Diamond Barn was my first choice for a wedding venue. As soon as I saw pictures of their steers I was sold. Their property is beautiful and their progress pictures while building kept me hooked. Jessica was great to communicate with and had the date I wanted available. My fiancé wanted to look at other venues just to make sure, but we both knew this was the clearly the place we wanted to get married. As soon as we drove up to tour it, I wanted to book it right then and there. This venue had everything we wanted: an outdoor and indoor option, lake views, a gorgeous barn, a perfect mixture of country and classy, a bridal suite and groom’s cabin, enough space for all of our guests, and of course the jaw dropping longhorns. There were so many places for amazing pictures. Their place is beautiful, unique and was truly perfect for my husband and I. The owners, Jess and Travis, are so sweet and accommodating. They treat you like they've known you forever. They were also very flexible and responsive with regards to scheduling venue visits and working with us the whole weekend of the wedding to make sure we had everything we needed. They wanted our day to be exactly how we wanted it and were willing to make anything we needed happen. They set up, took down, and cleaned up. They couldn’t have made it easier on us. This venue has the best price for everything they include and help with. We couldn’t have been happier with choosing the U Diamond, it made our day unforgettable. We had the most amazing wedding day, the best we could have ever imagined. We highly recommend the U Diamond for weddings or anything special event!

We are so happy that we chose U Diamond Barn for our July wedding! The barn itself is gorgeous and our guests were blown away by the view. Jess is incredible to work with, was quick to respond to any questions, and truly made us feel taken care of. I can't say enough good things about this venue and we highly recommend it!

We got married here a few weeks ago and this venue is sooo beautiful inside and outside! The views of lake Helena, mountains and the Longhorns! Travis and Jess were so great to work with and so helpful. Highly recommend this location for wedding venue or other gatherings.
