MTR Turns Wedding Dreams into Wedding Realities

Wow, where to start? First, the headline: Mountaintop Inn and Resort staff are artists and their medium: Weddings.

A big part of both our choice of Mountain Top and our satisfaction with that decision was just how incredible everyone is at creating unforgettable events there. Straight up magic, I tell you.

From the very beginning, Khele thoughtfully answered the many questions that arose from considering an out-of-state, destination wedding and was immensely helpful.

Once we moved on to the planning phase, we couldn’t have asked for a better Coordinator than Cassie! Through all of the easy and not-so-easy decisions, Cassie was endlessly understanding and kind. She kept us on track and made sure we met all of the important timeline milestones. There were so many aspects that we just weren’t sure about that she was willing to walk us through and we so appreciated that - having someone calm and assured by our side for all of the uncertainties. In fact, we felt like Cassie was our co-creator in the end, one for whom we will be forever grateful. From the rehearsal through each hour of our big day, she had everything transitioning smoothly and we ended up feeling like we had extra time at different stages! We had time to soak everything in, just the two of us, in the gazebo after the ceremony and Cassie made it possible for us to fulfill the hope we had mentioned of having a chance to enjoy the hors d’oeuvres we’d picked out (and that had our stomachs rumbling in anticipation).

Every item of food was delectable - the passed hors d’oeuvres, entrées, and even the salad we chose were all, impossibly, melt-in-your-mouth-level delicious. Our friends and family have since raved about their food journeys and each of us send our compliments to the chef!

The staff even went out of their way to make sure a meal was delivered to a family member who ended up feeling ill and was unable to partake in the festivities. We didn’t have to ask - they just took care of it. It’s those little details that set Mountain Top apart from all the other venues. All of those special touches made it that much more enchanting. Everything turned out above and beyond what we’d hoped for and that’s maybe the best compliment we could offer - that Mountain Top gave us our dream wedding.

To Gayle, our many thanks for the gorgeous decor and greenery. From my wildflower bouquet to the tabletop centerpieces, your skill at your craft was plain to see and it all came together beautifully!

Oh, and the backdrop? Just breathtaking - the mountains, hills, and reservoir are unbelievably picturesque. Like an elixir for the eyes, it’s the kind of view that makes everything that came before seem like a warm up for the real thing. Spectacular!

Mountain Top was everything a couple could wish for in a wedding venue and yet so much more - if you’re looking for amazing views, brilliant staff, and an unbelievable experience, this is the venue or getaway for you! We will be recommending it to family and friends for years to come (and plan to make it a regular vacation destination!). There’s just nothing like it. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making every one of our hopes for our wedding a reality!!

Simply perfect

We were able to have the amazing experience of having our wedding at Mountaintop Inn & Resort and we are so grateful for the amazing staff, wedding planners, and vendors that helped our stay be utterly perfect in every sense of the word. We will definitely be back there for vacation!

the BEST wedding venue

I will not be able to fit all the AMAZING things I have to say about Mountain Top here. I am convinced this is the best wedding venue in the world, and our guests and family absolutely agreed. To have every aspect thoughtfully considered and on-site was so perfect. It was beautiful, stunning, and so many guests have reached out to tell us how flawless of a day it was, how stunning Mountain Top is, and how good the food was. We loved being able to stay on-site, and to have the rehearsal dinner, welcome party, ceremony, reception, and after party all in the same place was just so seamless. Our wedding was nothing short of perfect - the staff there put so much hard work and thoughtfulness into our wedding. Particularly Miranda, who covered everything down to the last detail and remembered every last thing for the wedding (too much to name!). The bartenders and shuttle drivers were also awesome - the bartenders even saved some of my favorite drinks for me once they ran out and had them behind the bar when I stopped by! The florals done by Gayle were jaw-droppingly beautiful and the tasting event was a highlight of wedding planning! Mountain Top provided more than I could have ever imagined for our wedding and we will remember their helpfulness, the effort put in by all the staff, the attention to detail, and Mountain Top's beauty for the rest of our lives.

Easily, the Mountain Top Inn is among the best wedding venues, if not, THE best wedding venue in Vermont. The food and view of the Chittenden reservoir is always second to none and the staff is friendly and courteous. I highly recommend Mountain Top Inn for your wedding, or any other function... you will be glad you did!

Beautiful views of the countryside and the new barn is a great addition. I love to bring my cakes to the Mountain Top and be part of the action there.

I first photographed a wedding at The Mountaintop Inn & Resort in July of 2004. Not only is the location breathtaking, but the staff went out of their way to make sure the guests and vendors had whatever they needed. I was extremely impressed with the ease in which the days events flowed and how pleasant it was to be working at this venue. The guests were able to be there for the weekend and many of them commented to me how fabulous the resort was and how relaxed they were able to feel at this wedding. I didn't want the night to end! This has been the case consistently over the years and the Mountain Top remains one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. Very highly recommended!
