You’re engaged, very much in love, and dreaming of the perfect wedding. But where do you start? You want the day to be as special for your guests as it will be for you. Some couples opt for a destination wedding. This option gives them the choice of truly unique locations from mountains to beaches to all manner of beautiful natural settings. Vermont has become a very popular choice for destination weddings because it offers everything the bride and groom could want: a magnificent backdrop to the special day, an abundance of resort venues for the event, easy accessibility especially from the Northeast, and four-season desirability. For a venue that ticks all the boxes, consider the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa in Stowe, Vermont.
Located on 60 acres just outside the picture-perfect village of Stowe, Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa offers wedding packages that cover all the details and suit every preference and budget. Couples work with a Stoweflake Wedding Coordinator to put all the pieces together for their magical day. With a large guest list (up to 400!), the Pinnacle Ballroom, with its spectacular mountain views and 12-foot ceilings, can accommodate you and your guests. For smaller groups, your Stoweflake coordinator can divide a larger room to suit or suggest a smaller function room. Outdoor tented events in the courtyard are also a beautiful day or night option in season.
Stoweflake’s wedding packages really do simplify your planning by including everything from your reception space to flowers to a choice of menus to a complimentary room for the wedding night (followed by breakfast the next day). The platinum wedding package also includes a two-hour, hot air balloon ride before, after, or on the day of your wedding, plus an overnight stay with champagne on your first anniversary. (If the weather is not suitable for your balloon ride on the wedding weekend, the resort suggests you carry it over until your complimentary anniversary visit.)
Should you want a traditional church wedding or something very special like arrival at the reception in a horse-drawn sleigh, your Wedding Coordinator will help you make the local arrangements. In fact, your coordinator will assist in working with any outside vendors you’ve chosen to make your day perfect. Many of your details can be worked out via phone and email, but the resort does suggest a site visit to do a tasting and another perhaps a month out to review all the details.
Because Stoweflake has a full-service spa, they can offer your bridal party a full range of spa services from manicures and pedicures to hair and make-up to massages and mimosas. In addition, as a four-season resort, you and your guests can take advantage of resort activities from golf to biking to winter fun like skiing and even dog sledding.
If Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa sounds like just the spot for your destination wedding, call them soon to reserve a date. For June weddings they generally need at least 18 months and for a date in the fall (the Vermont fall foliage makes a magnificent backdrop to your wedding photos), they recommend two full years.
