    Best day of our lives

    We are so happy that we picked Sugar Bowl as our venue! The staff and the food at this venue are phenomenal! And the lodge has such a chill, family vibe. We got married at the Village Lodge and had our rehearsal dinner at Lake Mary. Both were beautiful. The day at the lake on Friday before the rehearsal dinner was a great way to greet all of our friends and family, was a lot of fun, and made wedding day a lot less stressful. Tammy helped us out with our food tasting and was there on wedding day and is a treasure. Lisa is the new coordinator there and did a terrific job keeping us organized. We recommend using the Disney lift if you can--such a treat to go up there to signature cocktails, friends, family, and music with a view. We also had a kid-friendly wedding (we had ~25 kids there!) and the lawn games were clutch. Beautiful day, fantastic venue, can't recommend the whole experience highly enough.

    Our experience at Sugar Bowl (Lake Mary) was phenomenal! The wedding coordinators and staff were flexible and easy to work with. The food was unbelievable, our guests were blown away, and most went back for seconds. Sugar Bowl created the ideal wedding experience. When reminiscing about it after my husband said: "It was so much fun I want to do it all over again!"

    Having skied at Sugar Bowl for several years, the resort held a special place in our hearts, and now that we were married there, it is even more special to my husband and me. Allison was fun to work with, attentive to our many silly questions, and very good at her job. The rest of the Sugar Bowl staff was equally helpful and friendly. Because Sugar Bowl employees do the set up, break down, and everything in between, we were able to have fun with our guests and each other instead of stressing about centerpieces. My husband and I have heard from many of our guests that ours was the most fun and beautiful wedding they have attended.

    The cocktail hour at the top of Mt. Disney is absolutely worth doing. We had been up there many times in winter, but the wildflowers were going OFF during our late-August wedding, and I'm so excited to see our photographs from up there. Our guests loved the chair lift, as well. We loved not having to find a caterer (Sugar Bowl does catering in-house), and the food was amazing, too! Having many of our guests stay at the Village Lodge with us turned our big day into a fun weekend getaway and gave us more time with our many out-of-town friends and family. The Village Lodge basement area also worked perfectly for our after party (just add glowsticks and speakers).

    I cannot recommend Sugar Bowl highly enough.

    Sugar Bowl is one of the most beautiful wedding locations I have ever shot at. The scenery and landscapes are breath taking! On top of that Meghon, Amanda and the staff are very helpful, organized, and friendly. They make everything run smoothly and seamlessly so that you dont have to stress about anything. I love how the team works with all the other vendors to make sure the wedding is perfect for the couple!
