Deerflat Ranch is a peaceful Boise wedding venue with dreamy indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception spaces as well as stunning photo locations!

As photographers, we often visit new venues to look for wedding photo locations and make sure we're prepared for our couples' wedding days! When we first visited Deerflat Ranch in Nampa, Idaho, it was a new and budding wedding venue with huge potential. It has since transformed into a stunning location to host both indoor and outdoor Idaho weddings in the Treasure Valley. Overlooking the Deerflat National Wildlife Refuge, this peaceful Idaho wedding venue is an amazing spot to get married!

Being a wedding photographer means getting VIP access to a lot of moving pieces for a wedding day. We get to experience almost everything at a venue alongside the couple. We have photographed a wedding at Deerflat Ranch, and absolutely loved it! Here are a few of its best features:

As small business owners ourselves, we love supporting other family owned and operated businesses! Deerflat Ranch is family property and family owned wedding venue. The wedding experience at Deerflat Ranch is personal.

Deerflat Ranch has space for all your wedding events in one location

With the addition of a large building this year, Deerflat Ranch now has an indoor ceremony or reception space in addition its outdoor spaces and getting ready rooms! Couples can get ready there with their wedding party and family, and walk or ride to their ceremony and reception—all on one property! This makes wedding day logistics much easier to navigate. In addition to event space, Deerflat ranch has so many amazing spots for wedding photos, right on the property, including a lavender field!

Wedding Venue with amazing natural light, neutral colors, and stunning photo locations

From a photography standpoint, we love the amazing natural light and neutral colors in the getting ready space. Deerflat Ranch also has a room lined with mirrors, set up for multiple hair and makeup artists to do their magic at once!

In the event space, Deerflat Ranch has high ceilings, neutral colored floors and walls, and multiple garage doors that open for an open air feel when the weather is nice, or natural light to shine in through the glass when it's just a little too cold to be out. The space really is a beautiful blank canvas. It's perfect to make each couple's vision and wedding dreams come to life, especially if you're working with an event designer or planner!

And in terms of wedding photo locations, the property is full of beautiful spots like these...

Indoor and Outdoor Ceremony and Reception Space at Deerflat Ranch

The bonus of having that amazing building is that Deerflat Ranch has both indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception space. The outdoor spaces are open with mature trees lining the outside of each space. In the outdoor space adjacent to the event space, lights are strung to create a dreamy glow as the sun goes down. Speaking from experience, the outdoor spaces are the perfect balance of warm Idaho sun and cool summer shade for wedding guests, while the indoor space makes Deerflat Ranch a viable option for weddings outside of the warm months!

I'm a Co-founder and Lead Photographer at Pen and Lens.

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. I love capturing the interactions between the bride and her tribe as they get ready together, the look on a groom’s face when he FINALLY sees his bride for the first time, and the way a dad wraps his arms around his baby girl on her wedding day. Bride and groom portraits make my heart jump and I cry on almost every wedding day.
