The WISP Resort is a BEAUTIFUL setting to have a wedding ceremony and reception. Whether it is indoors (ours was in the "Mountain Mist Tent" and it was very elegant...just what I wanted) or outdoors on top of the mountain, they work hand-in-hand with you to make sure your special day is planned just how YOU want it. We got so many compliments from our guests about the venue, the wedding ceremony itself and the FOOD!!! People talked A LOT about how delicious the food was (especially the Prime Rib)! We are locals in the Deep Creek area and do not live too far away from the WISP.
I wanted to stay in the area and compared other locations and venues to the WISP and nothing came close to the convenience and amenities that the WISP had to offer us for our wedding. Everything from the bridal party stay in the hotel the evening before, to the wedding ceremony and reception in the Mountain Mist Tent, the private Cocktail Hour for the wedding party in a yurt nearby, late night pizza for the heavy party-goers, to the newlyweds having a complimentary room at the hotel the night of the wedding. It was all in ONE location, which is what I was looking for. All we had to do at the venue was decorate...no set-up, tear down, trash collection, having to bring in our own alcohol, NONE OF THAT (which is what many of the other local venues were expecting you to do). It was all included! I'd recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a beautiful setting with wonderful people to work with!

We had our wedding there September 2017 and it was amazing and the views from our ceremony location were breathtaking. Every guest we invited absolutely loved the resort and everything it had to offer to entertain the guests. We were able to enjoy a bonfire with our guests the night before the wedding and even though unplanned they also allowed us to enjoy it after the reception for our wedding ended. They were very accommodating with all our requests for changes in the menu and decorations and additional space for the girls to prepare the day of the wedding. I would absolutely reccomend this to anyone in the search for wedding venues!

Everything was great! We had our ceremony at the top of the ski slope with such a beautiful view. Our reception was in the yurt village. Food was good. Everything went smoothly, the people we worked with at Wisp were professional and made sure everything was organized.
Also it was so convenient how they have a hotel right there at Wisp. Our wedding party and guests stayed there. :)

We highly recommend the Wisp Resort to our clients; big or small event. Your staff was outstanding and very professional.
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.
