    Perfect Covid Wedding

    Lisa and Wisp resort was a life saver! Like many 2020 brides I had to postpone my large wedding in San Diego and reschedule back on the east coast so our immediate families could drive. I contacted Lisa about 6 weeks prior to our wedding date and she was able to pull together a team, make recommendations for food and local vendors. She made planning a destination wedding so simple and took away all my worries of not seeing the site prior to our wedding day. The actual day went perfect! We had perfect weather for the mountain top ceremony. All my guests loved the bonfire and s’mores post reception instead of dancing. Covid couldn’t stop us from having a small wedding with immediate family.

    Nothing but great things to say.

    It was an absolutely perfect day from start to finish. All of the staff were great! Everyone went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly. The ceremony site at the top of mountain is breathtaking. We took the chairlift down to the reception. It was perfect and a needed few mins to relax with my husband. (It would be nice if the chairlift was included in the package.)
    The food was delicious. We had our reception in the yurt. There was a cocktail hour and snacks at the end of the night along with an abundance of dinner food of course. After the reception we had a bonfire. It was a great way to end the night!
    The wedding coordinators where extremely helpful and great to work with! Many friends and family have told us since that it was their favorite wedding they had ever been to. We would very highly recommend! So very glad we had our wedding at Wisp!
    We used Trish at Petal Branch for flowers, Higher Focus Studios photography, Mountain Flour for cake and Paul McGrady DJ. I could never say enough good things about each of these vendors. Absolutely loved them!!!

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing a wedding at the Wisp Resort in August, and I can't say enough about the professional, friendly and accommodating atmosphere there. As a photographer, I notice everything about a wedding day, and on this day, I noticed a very friendly staff at a particularly beautiful venue. I highly recommend WISP if you are looking for a venue with a variety of beautiful settings.
