We chose to have our ceremony and reception at the Alyeska Resort. It was June and a perfect time of year up in Alaska. Their gardens were filled with beautiful tulips and wild flowers. Not only does the resort have an amazing backdrop of mountains but it also has a pond. We had our ceremony outside in a gazebo by the pond. They had a back-up tent ready in case it rained. Jennifer McCombs was our event coordinator and she was available the many times during the 6 months that lead up to our event when I had questions. My husband and I live in Virginia and had to do many transactions via e-mail and fax. Although Jennifer was not there the day of our wedding, the wait staff and maitre'd were attentive and helped our event run smoothly. This hotel not only held our event in one of their two ballrooms but the it has an amazing spa where I got myself and my bridesmaids massages and it even has a Starbucks in the resort! I would recommend this venue to anyone interested in having an event in this area.Sent on 07/02/2013

Dream come true
Jennifer, Katie, and the whole crew at Alyeska were unbelievable throughout the wedding and planning process. Day-of, they were working tirelessly in the background to ensure all the pieces came together. Scott, the pastry chef, made the most beautiful cake—truly a dream realized. And 5 types of cupcakes in addition to the cake!! Lamont, the head chef, made a delicious dinner (including late night tacos!). The banquet staff was anticipating our every need including guest allergies/sensitivities, food for my husband and myself, and making sure my glass of rosé was never empty. The value of the venue was incredible. I was able to have everything I wanted at a single location, and it simplified my planning process. They even allowed our dogs to be a part of the ceremony outdoors!! My husband and I are over the moon about our experience, and couldn’t have been happier with Alyeska and Jennifer (and the whole staff). Thank you for helping make our wedding dreams come true.Sent on 09/13/2019

My daughter and son-in-law were married in Girdwood in early August, 2019, and we chose to host the reception at Alyeska Resort Hotel. We couldn't be happier with this choice! The hotel, grounds, and ballroom are beautiful. Jennifer, our event coordinator, was outstanding. The food and cake were exceptional. The evening absolutely went off without a hitch. Our guests raved about the reception. I would recommend this venue enthusiastically!!Sent on 09/09/2019
