Mammoth Lakes Wedding Venue
1 Minaret Road
Mammoth Lakes, California 93546
Mammoth Mountain isn’t just for skiers anymore. In fact, leisure-seekers come to this Eastern Sierra oasis year-round for golf, fishing, and hiking—or to just kick back in the serene alpine environment. Still others, enticed by the dramatic terrain and the deluxe amenities, come here to wed.
Though the whole town of Mammoth Lakes is only four miles from end to end, the resort encompasses a vast assortment of lodges and event venues, each with its own distinctive appeal. The resort’s knowledgeable staff will assist couples in customizing their Mammoth experience to suit their personal style.
For an experience as exhilarating as falling in love, adventurous couples say “I do” atop Mammoth’s 11,000-foot summit—one of the highest peaks in California. In keeping with this wild wedding scenario, newlyweds can ski down the mountain, wedding veil trailing behind like a flurry of snowflakes. Or treat everyone to a champagne gondola ride for an authentic bird’s-eye view of the town below. Disembark mid-mountain at Parallax, an elegant restaurant with soaring windows on two sides.
On Mammoth’s northwest fringe, rustic romance flourishes at Tamarack Lodge and Resort, whose cabins overlook the crystalline shores of Twin Lakes. Boasting high-beamed ceilings and the warm patina of the past, Tamarack’s wood-frame cabins are spread throughout the forest where chipmunks and mule deer meander among lodgepole pines and songbirds croon from fir trees. Here, you can bask in the ever-changing hues of the seasonal foliage, particularly breathtaking in early fall when golden autumnal light accentuates the orange-red of the aspens. Spring introduces its own palette, with deep blue lupine and the burnished reds and golds of Indian paintbrush in colorful clusters around the base of trees. In winter, everything is covered in pristine white. After an invigorating day on the slopes, cozy up in front of the fireplace with your sweetheart as a light snow falls outside. Views from Tamarack stretch across the lakes, and from summer through fall you can cross the footbridge that leads to a tiny islet holding the Forest Chapel. Have an intimate ceremony beneath a log trellis, then celebrate your union at one of Mammoth’s many great reception sites.
The sky’s the limit in the Eastern Sierra. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated soirée or a thrilling adventure, Mammoth Resort has an option that’s perfect for you. The range of ceremony and reception sites, combined with Mammoth Catering’s outstanding service, will ensure you have the wedding you envision.
