We spoke to three couples who found different ways to incorporate Blue Mountain into their wedding. You may have heard about the romantic surprise wedding at the top of the hill during the winter, but this week we’re exploring a few weddings that didn’t make it into the papers (although we think they probably should have!). With the ceremony, reception, or photos, there are many ways to include the backdrop of Blue Mountain in your wedding and these three stories will show you how.
Sarah and Bryce
After meeting at Blue Mountain one night, Sarah and Bryce had no hesitation when it came to planning their wedding at Blue.
“Our love story starts 8 years ago on a snowy winter night at a local Blue Mountain Village pub. We were both with different groups of friends that night when we met over a drink and a dance… From that day forward, we built a strong love for each other and Blue Mountain,” says Sarah. “When we finally got engaged, it was not even a question that we would get married at Blue.”
The couple planned for a beautiful mountaintop ceremony on June 1st.
“Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we had to make some last minute adjustments,” adds Sarah. “The inside ceremony location was set up perfectly and without a missed step. After the ceremony, the rain stopped and we were able to use the terrace for cocktails and apps. It was perfect!”
Nicole and Andrew
Nicole and Andrew also opted for the popular mountaintop ceremony, with a twist.
“Andrew and I knew from the moment we got engaged that we wanted our wedding to be a little different”, says Nicole.
The couple worked with Blue’s wedding coordinator to create a beautiful outdoor Sunday Brunch wedding.
Their guests arrived at their mountaintop ceremony via Gondola, and after the nuptials, guests were taken to the Blue Mountain Beach for the reception.
“Guests were greeted with signature mimosas, miniature croissants and cinnamon buns as well as a full service Caesar Bar followed by a delicious full brunch,” reminisces Nicole.
The relaxed and fun celebration also had lawn games on the beach including croquet, bocce ball, and bean bag toss.
“The day was perfect, and it felt so easy. We were able to have the wedding we wanted; it was intimate and sweet,” says Nicole.
Stephanie and Tyler
Another way to include Blue in your big day may seem less obvious, but can still be just as memorable.
“Blue Mountain has always been an important part of our lives and when we planned a winter wedding we knew that we had to incorporate Blue in the day,” says Tyler Hardy. “Skiing and Snowboarding had to make an appearance somehow.”
Tyler and his wife, Stephanie, had a winter wedding and decided to have their wedding photos taken at the base of Blue Mountain after the ceremony. A shuttle brought the wedding party to the hill, and the groomsmen, father of the bride, and groom all changed into their ski and snowboard boots and rode down the hill to meet the bride and bridesmaids who were gathered at the base of the hill. This made for some beautiful and entertaining photos, with the men in their snow boots and the women in their wedding attire.
“The photos at the base of the hill of the entire wedding party will forever hold a special place in our hearts,” says Tyler.
We hope that these three stories will inspire you to get creative with incorporating Blue Mountain into your special day. There are countless ways to include Blue Mountain in the backdrop of your wedding, and we challenge you to get creative like these couples to make your wedding the day you always dreamed of.
