We are all for a good sparkler exit! Sparklers are allowed outside as long as there is not a burn ban in effect. If you are using sparklers, you will be required to provide a bucket with sand to safely extinguish the sparklers. Traditional fireworks are not allowed.

You will need to sign our pet policy agreement if you are planing on having any animals present on your wedding day. We just ask that they be kept outside and removed from the property when the indoor reception begins and that any excrement is disposed of properly.

When Javen and I got engaged, I thought I was throwing him a surprise birthday party. Little did I know, he had been secretly planning to propose the whole time. The day after we got engaged, Javen and I were at dinner and he had the idea of opening up a wedding venue together. We soon started looking for land on which to build our dream venue.

After months of searching, we eventually found the perfect plot of land to build our wedding venue. The land consists of 25 acres right on the edge of Stillwater. While being secluded, it is also close to amenities and hotels in the Stillwater area. With over a decade of home-building experience, we were able to create the exact venue that we envisioned, featuring amenities that set us apart.

While we wanted to have a wedding venue first and foremost, we wanted to have a venue where we could host other events, such as birthday parties, Christmas parties and work events, as well. Ultimately, we wanted a space where people could have fun. We pride ourselves on working to alleviate any stress that comes with planning your event. Our ultimate goal is for you to have fun at your event- that’s what The Range is all about.

Your wedding, our venue

Let’s make some wedding magic!
