Champagne Sundeck Ceremony
Say "I do" under the magical Champagne Sundeck. This is a covered outdoor location just outside the Yodeler Lodge. Nestled into the wooded hillside and complete with a small natural waterfall, it makes a lovely location for a mid-sized ceremony, a cocktail party, or even a small summertime reception.
Tannenbaum Lodge Ceremony & Reception
Perfect for the adventurous couple, our most secluded location overlooks the Sky High Adventure Park and Mountain Coaster. The lower level features an indoor ceremony space with a stone fireplace as the backdrop for your vows. The upstairs reception makes for an easy transition and is also complete with a floor to ceiling fireplace. If you are looking to add a truly unique touch, you can arrange to zip line into your reception!
Holiday Valley Lodge Reception
Holiday Valley's newest and most spectacular lodge, this location has 3 floors, multiple decks and balconies, all with spectacular views of the hillside and golf course. The cathedral ceiling and dramatic architecture of the top level is remarkable, making it the perfect venue for a reception. The Holiday Valley Lodge is adjacent to the guest rooms at the Tamarack Club.
Holiday Valley Lodge Outdoor Ceremony
Just outside the Holiday Valley Lodge is a large cobblestone deck filled with gorgeous potted plants in the spring, summer, and fall with a scenic view of the slopes. This unique location can accommodate small or large ceremonies.
Another option is our Tamarack Putting Green, a popular choice for a unique ceremony with gorgeous views and a small creek to set the tone.
Mountain Top Ceremony
Many couples who have fallen in love on the slopes at Holiday Valley choose to hold their ceremony or reception at the top of Mardi Gras, and what a view! Transportation is via chairlift, so weather and guests who are uncomfortable with heights must be taken into consideration. Please read this information about summer chairlift rides.
Reviews from our Wedding Couples
Our wedding coordinator, Katelyn, was amazing through the entire process. She always made time to meet with us. She was very responsive to emails/texts/ phone calls and answered any and all questions. She was there with us day of to help organize everything. She reached out to all of our vendors and made sure everyone knew where to be and when. She was proactive through the entire process. JT and I loved working with her.
The venue itself (Yodeler Lodge) was beautiful and offered both indoor and outdoor options. Our ceremony was supposed to be outside but it was rainy, windy and cold. Last minute, Katelyn and I made the call to move it inside. None of the guests knew or could tell that this indoor ceremony was not the original plan. Everything was beautiful and still had a great view of the mountains and colors.
The food was also fantastic. Everyone one of our guests was raving about it especially the vodka sauce and the potato station. The wedding couple gets their own personal server to take care of you and the bridal party all night. Everything went very smoothly and the DJ, Photographer, venue, etc worked so well together.
The cherry on top was that the cake was included with the Holiday Valley package and Butterwood provided the most delicious cake.
This experience was perfect and we have Katelyn and Holiday Valley to thank.
