We cannot say enough good things about Stowe Mountain Lodge and Wendy Collins. The venue is breathtaking, the staff is amazing, the food was perfect and Wendy, our coordinator made everything run so smoothly. As a bride I never had to worry or stress about anything, all of our questions were answered in a timely manner and thoroughly.
We had around 200 guests and the food on the night of our wedding was just as delicious on the night of our private tasting (guests were raving about it). We received so many compliments on the entire night but one thing that was so important to me was the timeline. Guests were never standing around unsure of what to do or when something was going to happen, I even had a family member ask for the timeline we used so they could use it for their wedding. The entire staff made us feel so special not only on our big day but even when we went back for our anniversary. I highly highly recommend Wendy and her team at Stowe Mountain lodge.

There is hands down - no better hospitality or service at any hotel we've ever been to than the Stowe Mountain Lodge. Our guests today are raving to this day about attending the best wedding of their lives - where they enjoyed not only the main wedding events, but also the lodging at SML where they felt so incredibly taken care of!
We got married in SML this past July with my big crazy Indian family and >150 of our guests staying on site - and it was certainly a weekend to remember. it was not just the major wedding events, but the true Stowe Mountain Lodge hospitality (SML) and the little details, moments, meals, and hard work tirelessly managed behind the scenes that made this such a phenomenal weekend. Ashley, Calais, Wendy, Julie, Justin, and the entire SML staff welcomed all of our zany ideas, unique requests, and our very type A family with such warmth, patience, and open arms from day 1 of planning to our wedding day. Our guests saw this warmth firsthand – whether it was the valet team going above and beyond to take care of our guests through minor accidents or road trouble, the pampering and care we experienced at the Salon and Spa (like when they brought me balm for my sore knee and hot tea on tap for my sore throat!), or the team managing such a complicated timeline like clockwork. As the traditions, rituals, and the shape of modern day weddings and culture evolve, it is so critical to have a venue, vendors, and staff by your side as partners that are willing to adapt and evolve to meet those needs. The Lodge and their staff exemplify this new era of weddings and have become like a second home and extended family to us. They really treated us all like family - and everything went on without a hitch! I think we may be the only Indian wedding that actually started 2 minutes EARLY ;) They offered our families, our friends, and Kunal and me a lifetime of memories – & we cannot wait to come back again and visit our new Vermont home in the years to come!

We had a winter wonderland wedding in Stowe in mid-December at the Stowe Mountain Lodge and I cannot say enough great things about the experience! Growing up in Stowe, I always knew I wanted to get married in town but I didn't know exactly where. After getting engaged, I met with Wendy Collins at SML and knew immediately that we were in the right hands and at the right place. We decided early on that we were going to hold both the ceremony and reception at the hotel. We quickly worked through the contract phase and locked in a great room rate with over 90 rooms booked in the hotel. As the planning continued, we decided to host our rehearsal dinner at the SMC Golf Cottage and hosted the welcome party at the skating pavilion so that our guests would not need to leave upon arrival on Friday night. Wendy worked through every detail with me over the 8 months of planning and gave great guidance and help along the way. We communicated by phone and email and had a few in-person meetings in the months leading up to the wedding. Upon arrival at the Stowe Mountain Lodge, all of our guests were treated like royalty and had the absolute best service and loved their rooms. Wendy was with us from Thursday through Sunday and running all events. We had a family style dinner Friday night at the golf cottage. We then met the rest of the guests at the skating pavilion and had everyone skating and mingling in the barn until 10pm. It was so much fun and such a great way to kickoff the weekend. Saturday we woke up in the Front Four Suite and had the "glam squad" from the Stowe Mountain Lodge Spa join us in the suite to do hair and makeup. Everyone looked stunning and it was a relaxed fun environment. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception flowed into each other flawlessly due to our work on the timeline and my husband and I were left to just enjoy everything without any stress. The food was delicious and service perfect! Wish we could do it all again! Highly recommend a wedding at SML!
