5 Star - Stunning Experience!

I will make this simple.

100 times out of 100 I would recommend WISP and especially Larissa/Lisa - Fantastic is the word I would use to describe them!

Thanks!

Short notice, low budget, small, no frills kind of wedding

My wife and I decided we wanted to get married and with family from both sides invited (and living in different states) we needed to find some sort of neutral ground that would be “equally inconvenient” for everyone on short notice. From initial discussion to wedding day was only about 6 weeks. We wanted simple and to the point. As it happened, one of our most favorite places (Deep Creek) was almost exactly the same distance to drive for everyone on both sides. I called and spoke to Lisa who told me the date we wanted was available and that they could make anything we wanted happen and emailed me the information quickly. My emails and phone calls were always answered by her team promptly and overall, they were a pleasure to deal with. They really did make this a simple and straight forward process from start to finish. We exchanged vows off site (though Lisa had some great options had we decided to conduct the ceremony at the resort) and then everyone drove over for a great catered meal. We chose the meal option of the Prime Rib and BBQ Chicken. The food was amazing. The room was set up perfectly and we weren’t rushed at all. We were allowed to do our own thing and we could have decorated or re-arranged any way we wanted. On our event day, we spotted a fireplace in the main dining hall that we wanted to take some pictures in front of and they immediately lit it to accommodate our request.
I would highly recommend Wisp to anyone looking to host a wedding (or other event).
*note - we didn’t think to take any pictures before our catered lunch to show off the room and the pictures that were taken didn’t capture enough to show off.

Lisa and the resort is amazing!

My husband and I got married at Wisp on 10/01/2022. We could not be happier with how our day turned out. Leading up to the wedding, Lisa met with us in early 2021 and was extremely professional, friendly and informative. Later when we booked with the venue, we asked for a food tasting and they said they don’t usually offer that. However they were extremely accommodating and prepared an elaborate food tasting for my husband, mom and dad. Lisa and Larissa respond to emails promptly and find answers to questions in a timely manner. The resort itself has so much to offer. The resort is nicely kept and has an everlasting source of natural beauty. Lisa and Larissa were supportive in helping me decide when and where to move my ceremony as it was raining and forecasted to rain for the next 24 hours into our wedding date. I was unsure about one of the venue spots for the ceremony but Lisa and Larissa assured me to it would like beautiful. They were right. It all looked so stunning. Highly recommend Lisa and her team!!

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.
