    Amazing Reception

    Bear Creek was the perfect place to have our wedding. Lisa and the whole BC team were super accommodating and helpful through the whole planning process. On top of that they were extremely helpful and accommodating when we had to reschedule due to COVID. Our 6/5/21 wedding was the perfect all inclusive stay for our guests and BC knows how to put a wedding together with no stress. The food was also amazing and our guests could not have had better things to say. 10/10 would recommend

    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 further

    Lisa at bear creek was great! Everything turned out better than expected.

    We are very happy that we chose to have our November wedding at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Lisa was our wedding coordinator and she was very helpful. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we had to postpone our wedding from October 2020 to November 2021. Lisa was able to arrange a second wedding tasting closer to our new date even though we had already gone to one the previous year. Lisa was very organized and made sure that everything ran smoothly.

    Bear creek provides a room for you to get ready in on the morning of the wedding and a small room where they put Hors d’oeuvres and drinks for you and your bridal party during the cocktail hour, so that you do not have to miss all the food served. They also ask you for your favorite drink choices and have them ready to go on the day of the wedding. Following the reception there was champagne and two extra meals for us in our room. The room was spacious and very nice! We were able to arrange a breakfast the day after the wedding that turned out wonderfully

    Everything turned out better than we had hoped. Bear creek is definitely a great choice!
