Blue Mountain Resort is a multi-purpose wedding venue located upon the slopes of the Pocono Mountains in Palmerton, Pennsylvania. The family-owned location was opened on the 22nd of December, 1977 and has since established itself as a hallmark of wedding venues in Pennsylvania. The resort caters to couples who have always dreamt of mountainous scenery combined with a refined atmosphere and sense of sophistication.

Facilities and Capacity

Blue Mountain Resort provides couples with a scenic outdoor location to host their momentous ceremony and two elegant indoor event spaces to choose from. Couples can make their grand entrance down the garden path, toward the lush green lawns that are fringed by towering pine forests. Say “I do” beneath the quaint pergola that looks out over the breathtaking valley below. The Vista Ballroom features a 4,500-square-foot event space with sloping wood-paneled ceilings and stylish chandeliers. The Alpine Room displays an exposed-rafter ceiling, gorgeous carpeting, and ample space to construct a make-shift dance floor all within an impressive 5,400-square-foot space.

Services Offered

The professional and attentive staff at Blue Mountain Resort aims to turn your special event into the occasion you have always dreamed it would be. They will aid you in creating a personalized timeline and schedule so that the day runs smoothly and on time. They can, upon request, provide couples with a list of suggested wedding vendors to minimize the time they would spend searching for them. The venue has a range of enticing wedding packages for couples to consider such as the Platinum, Silver, and Buffet collections. Each package features ample time for reception dinners and a range of cuisine and bar service specialties that can be customized to suit every preference. Couples are encouraged to make use of the event items available to create beautifully designed layouts for their big day.


Blue Mountain Resort has an award-winning on-site culinary and catering team that will assist couples in the selection of delicious menus for their event.

Exceptional in every way

Can't say enough about this venue. The wedding coordinators and organizers were phenomenal. They paid attention to all of our requests and needs. The food was fantastic and accommodating, our cake designer worked with us in every way to make our cake perfect. Could not have asked for a better group of individuals who were very professional well organized and coordinated our wedding in such a manner that made it perfect in every way. Thank you so much for everything that you've done to make our wedding as perfect as it was. We love the fact that everything was included in our price the food the drinks the cake and the venue. And the views were spectacular made for great photos.

Everything went smoothly - wouldn't change a thing!

One of the reasons I chose Blue Mountain as my venue was because I wanted the planning process to be as low stress as possible, and the Wedding Coordination team definitely delivered! I always felt like I could reach out to them with any questions and they were happy to help.
It was great to have high-quality food, drinks, and the wedding cake all inclusive in the final pricing. Everything went smoothly on my day!

Blue Mountain was incredible!

Our day could not have turned out any better! They were so responsive and helpful every single step of the way. Our day of coordinator, Abby, was so attentive and a huge help! She made everything run perfectly and was on top of every little detail. The food was delicious, and the bartenders were efficient and made sure there was never a line. Our cake turned out just as I envisioned thanks to their pastry chef. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Mollie Stear
Mollie Stear
Wedding and Event Sales Manager

Mollie lives in Easton, PA with her 2 four-legged children and her fiance. On her free time she likes to do Barre3, hang out with her pups and fiance going on walks and planning her dream wedding!

When she isn't planning her own wedding, this is what she says about her job at Blue:

As the Wedding and Event Sales Manager at Blue Mountain, I am responsible for executing everything with the couple from the beginning. My role is to answer all our inquiries in a timely manner, as well as respond to our couples with any questions they may have regarding their dream wedding, as well as our property and venue spaces. When a couple is ready to see what Blue Mountain has to offer, I take them on a tour showing them around and giving them "the lay of the land" and what it would really look like to say "I Do" at Blue. From that moment of the inital inquiry to touring, I then help our couples book their dream wedding with us.

My favorite part about my job is meeting all of the couples, along with their family members sometimes and learning about their relationship! I believe that being a bride-to-be myself, I take my job as I would if I were going to look at venues or different vendors - we all want to feel special and know "the one" when it comes to your special day. Best part is hearing about the engagement AND what they are thinking for their day, together as a couple.

I like to create an experience with my couples and tours that will last - because even if you don't say "I Do" at Blue, our team is rooting for you to have your perfect day!

Stunning view and exceptional service - what more could a couple ask for on their wedding day!! It's always a pleasure officiating at Blue Mountain. Their team goes above and beyond for every event, and helps in any way possible so your dreams become a reality.

Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!

I've worked up at Blue Mountain many times and they keep improving their wedding services. Most recently, Emily was the coordinator and everything went off perfectly. The staff collaborated with me to make sure that the evening's activities flowed according to the bride and groom's timeline. They also were flexible in moving things around on their end. Not too mention the stunning view at the ceremony and in the ballroom. Great venue for the couple who is looking for that rustic, yet not too rustic (e.g. a barn), wedding. Also great if you enjoy skiing and the outdoors.
