Booking Sun Mountain Lodge was the greatest decision we made in our wedding planning process! Every change was handled professionally. I felt that as a bride I got a great deal, our wedding ended up under budget. Loved everything and everyone at the venue. Mary and her team did everything we thought of to make our entire wedding weekend amazing! We did the Cowboy Rehearsal Dinner and everyone loved it. We had a smaller wedding so we ended with up with about half the wedding coming to the rehearsal. We also did a morning after brunch. With no direction from us at all, the SML staff set-up a lot of the flowers from the Reception at the brunch. It was such a beautiful morning!Sent on 09/27/2016
Hilary is gosh darn WIZARD with bridal hair! She went so above and beyond what I expected for my hair. Everyone was amazed by it (rightly so!) and I wish I could have taken her home with me.

Chris Blue and everyone at Sun Mountain Lodge are just the best. Our wedding was seamless, beautiful, and perfect thanks to all of their help, an absolutely stunning location, and delicious food. It was a bit more expensive than we anticipated, but we did not scrimp on anything. Great value and well worth it.Sent on 07/18/2019

We were so happy with EVERYTHING at Sun Mountain Lodge. The staff was amazing, taking care of any questions, needs, or issues that came up - including towing a car up to the lodge to ensure our friends made it to the ceremony! Mary was the best coordinator we could have asked for. Our photographer said we would never find someone as good as she was. We expected to have to ask our friends to do little things like move flowers from the ceremony to the reception, but the staff took care of it all! They set everything up perfectly too, it was absolutely gorgeous. We also had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Old Homestead, which was a ton of fun. Finally, we had a Seahawks brunch the next morning, and the staff had turned the room over so quickly and beautifully...we were in awe!Sent on 12/04/2016
Our entire event was gluten free due to Celiac disease. The Lodge handled everything perfectly, including serving GF bread that tasted better than any regular bread roll we've had! The rehearsal dinner and brunch was also GF, with amazing food and drinks.
We used the Spa for hair and makeup. Hillary was amazing. She listened to what each person wanted, and made it happen. When my mother-in-law's hair started to fall down, Hillary fixed it really fast and it held the rest of the day/night. Hillary also made sure that my makeup was natural and I felt totally comfortable as a more-gorgeous version of myself. That is a feat for someone who never wears makeup!
Our guests raved about the venue, food, accommodating staff, and activities such as mountain biking, horseback riding, and spa. Our goal was to ensure everyone had a fantastic time and the Lodge made sure that happened!
Finally, after everyone else left we stayed an extra night for a mini-honeymoon. My husband arranged for dinner in the Wine Cellar for the two of us and it was STUNNING. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and the staff had brought some of our wedding flowers in for decoration. It was gorgeous!
