We had our wedding in the morning on December 4th, 2016 and it was truly the best day ever. We picked the tippy top of Mammoth Mountain for our ceremony venue - called Eleven 53 for its elevation of 11,053 feet. We loaded up our friends and family in the gondolas to head up on a beautiful winter day and the rest was history. Loree helped our wedding flow from one thing to the next and was really the master behind it all. From fixing a minor cake disaster to helping set up and guiding our guests on where to go AND SO MUCH MORE - our wedding would not have been the same without her. Also, the months of planning before the big day, Loree and Amanda were always quick to answer questions and as a team they really came together to help me feel relaxed and confident that everything would come together - and it really did! We had our reception at the Mammoth Mountain Inn grillside bar which was so beautiful and charming. The food was great and the donuts were my favorite part! Mimosas were just perfect. The serving/cleaning staff was flawless. The bartender was fun and friendly and awesome. After it all, a lot of our family and friends had never been to Mammoth before our wedding and they still thank us for getting them out there and up that beautiful mountain. Mammoth will always be a very special place for us.Sent on 02/12/2017

Great and perfect venue- June Mountain
My husband and I got married on the top of June Mountain August 3 and it was an absolutely perfect and flawless day. The venue is gorgeous and the staff made everything so easy! I didn’t have a thing to worry about and everything was all taken care of and went off perfect! Our guests rode the chairlift up the mountain and I’ve had so many compliments from all of the guests that it was the best wedding they’ve ever gone to. I would do it all over again and highly recommend it. Also the food was amazing too! I would highly recommend Eureka Photography for pictures!Sent on 09/19/2019
Mammoth Mountain Price Rates
We have coordinated many weddings/events on Mammoth Mountain, and for us it feels like home. They have so many beautiful ceremony and reception venues to choose from. Whether you’re looking to get married at a chapel nestled in the woods, on manicured green at the Golf Course, or ski down the mountain immediately after saying your “I do's,” Mammoth Mountain has it all. :)
Abigail is a very competent wedding coordinator for the June mountain facility. It is 8000 feet in the air overlooking gull lake and June lake and it is absolutely beautiful
