Get Married at Alta Lodge! 

With Engagement Season in full-swing, January is prime-time to select your summer or fall wedding venue. If you are looking for a relaxing mountain setting, Alta Lodge just might be the place for you. Tucked away at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon at the base of Alta Ski Area, Alta Lodge has everything you need for your big day. 

“It was everything we could ask for and more. We were so impressed by the level of dedication the staff has to make sure all of their guests are well-cared for … Of course, on top of amazing service on the lodging side of things, the jaw-dropping views for our ceremony and reception couldn’t be beat. There were so many little things the Lodge took care of that we never would have even thought of – we didn’t realize just how much they would take care of when we chose this venue, but afterward, we realized how lucky we were to be able to have them take care of us on such a big weekend. If there was one best decision we could have made while planning our wedding, it was definitely choosing Alta Lodge as our venue.”

Here are 5 reasons to choose Alta Lodge for your summer wedding:  


The backdrop to any Alta Lodge wedding ceremony is stunning, to say the least. Our ceremony space looks directly out towards Alta Ski Area, with Mount Baldy at the center. In mid-summer, the mountain is so green you can barely believe it. Fall brings vibrant yellows and oranges as the aspen leaves change and the temperature cools. Located in the heart of the Wasatch National Forest at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon, Alta Lodge is the ideal venue for your mountain wedding. 

2. On-site Lodging 

Alta Lodge is more than just a wedding venue. With 40+ lodging rooms available, we have room for you, your family, and friends to relax and stay the night after your celebration. Whether your guests are traveling from near or far, it is always a good idea to have a lodging option available to avoid the need to drive after your reception. If you book on a Saturday night, our Sunday brunch is included in the room rate! All facility rental fees include one-night complimentary lodging for the newlyweds in a corner room with a fireplace and private balcony. 

3. Wedding Coordinator Included 

Unlike some other venues that require you to hire an outside wedding planner or day-of coordinator, Alta Lodge includes the services of a Lodge Wedding Coordinator at no additional cost. The wedding coordinator will work with you to plan your big day from start to finish and is on-site during your wedding. While their primary role is to help execute a smooth event, we have been in the wedding biz for many years and will offer suggestions on DJs, florists, officiants, and everything in between. Leave the details to us so you can enjoy your special day with family and friends. 

4. The Food  

Our on-site dining takes the guesswork out of choosing a caterer for your wedding.  With a variety of menus to fit your taste and budget, the food at Alta Lodge is incredible! Offering plated dinners for parties of up to 100 guests or a buffet option for larger groups. Entrée options include Chili-rubbed Roast Pork Tenderloin with an Apricot-Gochujang Glaze, Miso-Sake Sablefish, Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, and Polenta Pomodoro with Roasted Vegetables. No need to worry if you have guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions, our chefs can easily accommodate any diet. 

5. Destination 

If you are local to the Salt Lake area or planning a Utah destination wedding, Alta Lodge is the perfect venue for a weekend-long celebration. With the option of booking an exclusive weekend, Alta Lodge will be open to only you and your guests. From your rehearsal dinner to pre-wedding outdoor yoga, or a morning-after brunch buffet, we have you covered. Not to mention all the opportunities for fun and activities in the area for your guests: amazing hiking, beach volleyball in the town park, and wildflower walks for the whole family.  Within 32 miles of the Salt Lake International Airport, the Lodge is easily accessed for your family and friends from out of town.
