At The Lodges we pride ourselves on creating the most personal celebration. Below you will find a
sample of what your catering your wedding weekend might look like from breakfasts to late night
snacks we will keep you and your guests sustained and satisfied with fresh healthy foods throughout
Afternoon Check In:
Throughout the afternoon your guests will be arriving at the Resort and getting settled in and
familiar with their surroundings. Our staff will greet them at the Lodge and show them to their cabins while answering questions they may have.
We recommend performing your rehearsal as close to the time of the actual ceremony as
possible so the angle of the sun and shadows are most accurate. You may consider letting us prepare light snacks and beverages for the wedding party during this time.
There may be a private rehearsal dinner or a meal that includes all of the guests at the resort. We can prepare a private meal for the family and wedding party or a casual BBQ for everyone, or both!
The summer months offer many hours of daylight. Enjoying the lake in the evening or visiting on the beach is wonderful way to relax before bed. In the cooler months this is a nice time for a walk or a ski. Anytime of the year The Lodge will always be available to your guests to visit by the fire or enjoy a cocktail.
Rise and Shine:
You may choose to host a light breakfast at The Lodge before your guests start the day.
Summer days are long so your guests may want some time to play on the lake or enjoy a local hike before the festivities. Cooler months lend themselves to brisk walks or a cross country ski or visiting by the fire.
Offerings either 'to-go" or at The Lodge may be something to consider. We can talk about this during our planning.
Time to Tie the Knot:
There are several locations at The Resort that lend themselves to lovely locations for your ceremony. Either outside or in The Lodge your photos will be stunning!
While the families and wedding party are having photos taken your guests will be enjoying cocktails and hors d oeuvres.
Please Visit Sample Menus for your reception, both plated and buffet style. Bear in mind that our catering menus are extensive and we will work with you to create exactly what you want.
Dancing and Cake:
At the Lodges you are fortunate to have a professional wedding cake designer and baker on site! Laura will create a very personal cake with you.
After Party Fun:
Once the dancing has slowed, The Lodge and The Beach will be wonderful locations to unwind and continue the party.
Depending on your wedding day itinerary and your guest list it is often nice to provide some late night foods. This can be anything from special port and lovely cheeses by the fire in the lodge to nachos, sandwiches or light snacks by the campfire on the beach. We can discuss this option further if you would like to offer this.
A Day to Rest or to Discover and Play
A lazy morning may be in store for you and your guests with delicious coffee, bloody Marys and mimosas available at The Lodge. You might want to offer a brunch buffet or light breakfast and picnic lunches for those on the go. This might be the day that folks discover the Blackfoot River to float or fish or explore the cross country ski trails or enjoy one of the fantastic day hikes or simply lie on the beach and splash in the lake.
After a Day of Play….Return to The Resort
We would be happy to prepare an evening meal for any group of 20 or more guests who want to arrange something with us at the lodge. This can be a formal affair or something more casual. If this is something that you or your family and friends would like we can discuss menus and plan a final evening of fun!
The Lodge and Resort remains exclusively yours for another night to sip cocktails, watch the sun set and savor the love and support of your friends and families.
It is time to pack up and say your good byes. At The Lodge we can provide a light continental breakfast with our house made granola, great coffee, fresh fruit, house baked muffins and bagels and cream cheese. This is the perfect way to say good bye and thank you as your guests depart.
