Bryce Resort is a beautiful mountainside wedding venue in Basye, Virginia. This outdoor adventure resort provides couples with everything they need to create a perfect wedding day. Bryce Resort is set in the midst of Shenandoah Valley, nestled between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains. The breathtaking views are what attract couples, but the unparallelled service and accommodating venue spaces are what make them stay. Whether you’re planning an intimate gathering or want to host the wedding of the year, Bryce Resort will work with you to help make your dreams come true.
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.

Beautiful Bryce Resort
Absolutely everything for our daughter's rehearsal dinner and wedding was perfect! Event coordinator Jackie Moe was outstanding. This is a hidden gem of a venue, but not too far off the beaten path. The lift ride makes for a special touch, and the mountain scenery is lovely. The Shenandoah Center is terrific!Sent on 10/14/2019

I got married at Bryce Resort two weeks ago and it was the best day of my life! Absolutely gorgeous mountain top ceremony space and the Shenandoah Room was excellent for the reception. The Events Coordinator, Jackie, was incredible and kept this anxious bride calm while designing the wedding of my dreams! The food was amazing, the staff was exceptional, and the whole planning process was easy and fun. Hands down, best day ever and best place to get married!Sent on 10/23/2019
