    Spectacular

    My husband and I got married at Alpine Ponds May 2, 2020 and we could not have chosen a better place. Not only were the grounds beyond beautiful but Carrie was with us every step of the way. Originally we had a wedding with 75-100 guests planned which Carrie helped us organize and be aware of things we had never even considered but when Covid-19 hit Carrie checked in with us regularly while we decided what we were going to do. She also gave us multiple options. Eventually we decided we didn’t want to post pone and got married with just our parents and siblings there. The day couldn’t have been more perfect and it was in large part thanks to Carrie and Alpine Ponds. They were so flexible and easy to work with. We highly, highly recommend them to anyone looking for a gorgeous venue with as close to stress free help as one could imagine with a wedding. There’s also huge bullfrogs in the pond which our 5 year old loved! Thank you Carrie and Alpine Ponds!

This is a beautiful and hidden gem. They have their own sound system, which is great as an officiant, I can be assured that all of the wedding guests will hear the beautiful ceremony the bride and groom have chosen. The grounds are stunning and well cared for. The on site wedding coordinator is easy to work with and very professional.

Alpine Ponds is a beautiful little venue. The kind of natural, relaxing atmosphere you normally have to go much further out of town for. Owner, Russ is very friendly and easy to work with as well.
