    Outstanding!

    Chris is a very personable and reliable planner. Communication was seamless and she really took time to understand our wedding vision - both bride and groom. With her guidance and help our day came together beautifully! All staff along the way was helpful, friendly and accommodating.

    Everything we hoped for

    Chris Blue and the rest of the Sun Mountain team were fantastic throughout the planning process and when a surprise winter storm in September threw us a curveball on the day of our wedding. They really went all out. The venue (and view) speaks for itself and the Sun Mountain Lodge catering was amazing. Chris, the Lodge's event planner, is a pro. She is calming and easy to work with, has ongoing relationships with other vendors in town, has fantastic ideas, and is enjoyable to work with.

    A dream location!

    We knew we wanted to get married at Sun Mountain lodge from the first time we visited. The staff are absolutely incredible and the views, activities and amenities can’t be beat. Everyone who works there is so kind and generous. Chris, our wedding coordinator, was there for anything and everything we needed. There were so many small and thoughtful details that Chris and her staff were attentive to during the day. They were there to help at a moments notice, give advice, or just say hi. The cabins were perfect for our guests who wanted to be by the lake, and the lodge and the grounds were great for our wedding and reception. It was an absolute dream, and we couldn’t have asked for a better location or team. Even when it got colder than expected, the staff at SML jumped into action to make sure our guests were comfortable. Not only did Chris and the staff help to coordinate our beautiful wedding, but they also hosted us for a wonderful Cowboy Dinner rehearsal dinner, lake-side barbecue welcome dinner, and farewell brunch for our semi-destination wedding weekend. So many of our guests took advantage of the guided nature walks, mountain biking, hiking, tennis, canoeing, and horseback riding offered by the activities shop. Many others just enjoyed going downtown, or off into the Cascades for some adventuring.

    The food was fantastic. Having been originally from the East Coast, our wedding was the first time to Washington and the Pacific Northwest for many of our guests. From the hors d’oeuvres to the local pork to the sockeye to the late night Okanogan Trail Mix, our guests got a true taste of the amazing food Washington and the Methow Valley have to offer. Chef Tyler and his team did an amazing job of making sure we were eating great food all weekend long.

    Many of our guests have told us that they plan to come back to Sun Mountain Lodge and we can’t wait to go back too!
