Facilities and Capacity
Bryce Resort offers both outdoor and indoor sites to host your ceremony and reception. The two most popular outdoor spaces are Laura Lake and the Mountain Top. You can take the quad lift to the top of the Bryce Resort mountain, and catch a stunning view of Locher Bowl and White Lightening ski trails on your wedding day. Or, set up the party at Lake Laura, the 47-acre spring-fed lake that mirrors the sunsets during early evening events. For indoor events, the Copper Kettle Restaurant, Bar, and Lounge provides a quaint, vintage-style reception space your guests are sure to love. The restaurant features a stone fireplace with a heavy distressed mantle for keeping guest warm during winter weddings. It also gives guests a stunning view of the slopes with it’s floor to ceiling windows. The Copper Kettle Bar and Lounge is the perfect place to start cocktail hour. It features a U-shaped bar and more modern decor than the vintage mountain restaurant portion of the building. Bryce Resort will host another reception venue, The Shenandoah Center, in December of 2018. It also features floor to ceiling windows, a stone fireplace, and contemporary decor but will have a stone patio to give you and your guests more space to celebrate.
Bryce Resort offers several packages to meet the needs of any wedding style. The restaurant is open for rehearsal dinner rentals as well as day-after wedding brunches. The resort encourages the bridal party to use their amenities for other events, such as a bridal shower or tea, or a groom’s golf outing at the resort’s facilities. While Bryce Resort does not have on-site lodging, there are plenty of cabin rentals and nearby hotels for your guests to stay throughout the wedding weekend.

Bryce Resort is a beautiful place to have any event. The staff is exceptional. Our theme was Mardi Gras where we met and Bryce matched the decor and food. Wedding in front of fire place. The reception was a dream come true. Jackie and Charity went all out and made our day memorable. Let Bryce make your dreams happen.
