The perfect place for a wedding

Alyssa and Bill were fantastic at answering any questions that I had throughout this wedding process. They also helped set up as well the day of, they had a nice big fire place and heaters to keep my guest warm throughout the evening. I held my ceremony and reception there for about 30-40 people, it was the perfect size and place for this, could even fit more. I love just how easy and simple the whole process was, especially for guest for additional parking. The size of the cabins were great for getting ready on and for family to stay on site after the wedding. They also had amenities for bathroom, an onsite kitchen for food handling and a trash bin/cans as well. It fitted perfectly for the esthetic i was going for with so many trees and beautiful scenery of mountains.

Amazing Wedding at The Outpost!

Hi, this is Kurt and Stefanie Yaeger, now a happily married couple. Real people with a real review, and we can say we absolutely loved our wedding at The Outpost. The venue was magical, out of the box (which is perfect for us), and exactly what we wanted. Why? The mountain and lake views, the cabins, the privacy, the lighting, all of it amazing, but that isn't the main reason, which is attributed to the owner's personal service: Jolene, Alyssa, & Billy. They really went above and beyond, making sure our day was special, unique, and exactly how we wanted it. They were attentive and communicative leading up to the special day, recommended amazing food vendors, facility vendors, and made our day one that we could enjoy and focus on our guests.
The venue itself is amazing! Mountain views in the background of our photos of us saying "I do". The cabins! Five cabins we used to stay in, used on the day, and put up the wedding party in to stay overnight. Each having a personal touch of music, all on vinyl records (so cool). Also, the freedom to make our day special and unique. My wife and I chose where the isle went, the chairs were, the food vendors placed, tables, tents, everything went were our imagination wanted to put them. So, our wedding was bespoke, a one-off wedding that only we got to have, which means you get to use the same facility but it's going to be different than ours, so it will only be yours.
We're grateful for the wonderful memories. Our guests were over the moon. We can't wait to go back and spend a weekend where we got married. Where else can you get all that?
Kurt & Stefanie.

We're a family business and combine for decades of experience in storytelling, experience building and pulling off large-scale events around the world. The first time we saw this property, we thought, “What an incredible backdrop for a wedding!” Since purchasing the property two years ago, we've poured love, energy and a lot of hard work into reimagining this nearly 100-year-old lodge and creating a one-of-a-kind event space with a quiet, mountain-modern feel. We can't wait to share The Outpost with you and host you and your loved ones on your special day
