Start your adventure together in the Old West

Western weddings are popular and Oklahoma has plenty of options. But if you’re looking for something more unique than a wedding barn, we’ve got you covered!
 
Your ceremony…
How about a relaxed outdoor ceremony flanked by large trees? Just beyond the wedding archway, you’ll see our buffalo herd with the bucolic Osage Hills beyond them, stretching out for miles.
 
Cocktail hour...
While your photos are taken, your guests won’t be checking their watches because they’ll be having so much fun. They’ll be sipping cocktails on our covered deck, taking selfies and strolling in the shade along our Old West Boardwalk. We have a plethora of fun photo ops. You can even include a hay wagon tour where guests ride out among the buffalo and hand-feed them!
 
Your reception…

Your guests will be wowed by our rustic, elegant event space with vintage chandeliers that shine like stars against the high ceiling. Set your tables with our beautiful mismatched vintage china, flatware and glass water goblets.

Does the cost of the rental include food and beverages?
No. You are responsible for all food and beverage costs.

8 hours, including set-up and strike.

May I or my vendors drop off any items before my time block begins?

If guests arrive 20-30 minutes before the ceremony it should allow ample time for them to park, visit the restroom and make their way to the ceremony site.
 
Do you have a separate space for cocktail hour?
We have two options! You can use our covered deck with views of the Osage Hills and our buffalo herd or our Old West Boardwalk, which is also covered.
 
I want an outdoor ceremony but I’m worried about the weather. Do you have a contingency plan for inclement weather?
Yes. You may have your wedding in the barn or even on the covered deck if your guest count allows.
 
Will Old West Buffalo Company provide staffing during my wedding?
Yes. At least one staff member will be on site during your event.

In the event of a cancellation, all payments made to Old West Buffalo Company are nonrefundable.
 
I have friends and family who would like to see where I’m getting married. May we come for a visit?
