We LOVED our wedding at BCMR!
My husband and I chose BCMR because it was intimate, personal (the staff were so accommodating, kind, and very willing to go above and beyond), affordable, and most of all because we felt we would be in capable hands with Theresa (the event coordinator at BCMR), and later with Lisa. We made the absolute best decision of our lives. Our wedding, during a pandemic, had been the absolute best day of my life and a lot of that is because of the amazing people at BCMR.
My husband and I booked about 2 years in advance and during that time there had been a change in staffing so our wedding planner/event coordinator changed to Lisa. Lisa is absolutely incredible. We were obviously worried at first, because we loved working with Theresa, however there was truly no need to worry. Lisa went above and beyond for us constantly. Our planning process was quite stressful because of the pandemic. However, Lisa stayed in communication with us throughout the whole experience. Always updating us, offering suggestions, and doing everything she could on her end to help us have the best day. One of the many beautiful things about BCMR & Lisa is that you review EVERY DETAIL of your wedding ahead of time together and she reaches out to your vendors to make sure that everyone is on the same page. I am a very scheduled person, so having this made my experience so much nicer. Lisa made so many accommodations for us so that our wedding day was beautiful, simply enjoyable, and not stressful at all. She helped set up 11 Christmas trees for decorations, fielded my anxious phone calls when I was worried the state was shutting down, ran our rehearsal practice so that we all felt confident on the day of, made sure everything was perfect when we were getting ready the morning of the wedding, made sure I was able to get a picture with my husband on the ski lift, and so much more. Even when we thought it was going to be a wash out on our wedding day, Lisa already had thoughts about where she would have us take beautiful photos inside. She planned for everything.
I often hear from other brides and grooms that they don’t get to enjoy their wedding day or even eat dinner. That was not our scenario. Because everything had been done ahead of time, we were truly able to enjoy every minute of our wedding day and we even got to enjoy our dinner- which was AMAZING- the food…is incredible. BCMR thinks of everything; At the end of our wedding night, there were two dinners waiting for us in our room.
I also wanted to share that Laura from reservations was also AMAZING. We cannot say enough good things about her. Due to the pandemic, our invitations went out late, because we were waiting till the last minute given that everything was so unpredictable. She was so accommodating; she extended our block of rooms reservation deadline, offered early check in’s and late check out's for us, was so accommodating to the guests that needed to cancel or add a room last minute, and was always willing to send me updated room lists (so I could prepare welcome bags).
It truly feels as though the staff at BCMR is one big family helping you to create and have the best wedding day. If BCMR is on your list… please, look no furtherSent on 01/26/2021

Dream Come True Venue
We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding. Lisa and the rest of the team treated us so well and made our wedding seamless. Our guests also had a great time and everyone was blown away by the resort. We can’t wait to go back for a weekend getaway.Sent on 01/05/2020

My husband and I had our wedding at Bear Creek, and it was truly magical. Our wedding coordinator was Lisa, and she went above and beyond for us. Between Lisa, the reservation staff, and the waiters and bartenders, we truly could not have asked for a better experience. The venue takes care of gathering all of your belongings and flowers and stores them away for you to pick up the next morning. I could go on and on about how wonderful it was to have our wedding at Bear Creek. We are hoping to go back for our anniversary :)Sent on 10/16/2019
