Make Your Wedding Day Special at Sunday River
All four seasons Sunday River Resort offers stunning views, private receptions, and outdoor terracesApril 23, 2017
Newry, ME (Summer 2017)-Hundreds of couples can't be wrong--hosting your special day at Sunday River Resort is a beautiful, affordable, fun, and an increasingly popular way to celebrate one of the most important commitments of your life. From grand ballrooms and outdoor terraces with stunning views of the resort's popular Jordan Bowl to sweeping vistas of the Mahoosuc Range after a Chondola ride to North Peak, a wedding at Sunday River is both memorable and special.
"It's all about the details," Emily Bourassa, Wedding Sales Manager at Sunday River, says. "Couples who want to say 'I do' in the Mountains of Western Maine want a certain look, feel, and even menu. We offer three ceremony spaces, three reception venues, and a number of packages that allows couples to customize as they go. Plus, each couple has a dedicated coordinator that will walk them through the planning process to create that special day."
Wedding packages start at only $55 per person and combine a wedding day menu featuring seasonal flavors and ingredients as well as a list of day-of services. Plus, for every wedding booked, the bride and groom each receive a Sunday River only season ski pass, plus a bridal suite, a champagne toast for their guests, and a wedding coordinator to help with every step along the way.
With location topping the list of what couples look for first and foremost, Sunday River makes the decision for an alpine wedding easy with multiple venue options, perfect for any couple looking for a traditional ceremony or an adventurous celebration:
The Grand Ballroom at the Grand Summit Hotel is the picture of elegance and ideal for large affairs with room for up to 400 guests. The ballroom features a large dance floor and a private outdoor patio. Host your outdoor ceremony or a spectacular cocktail hour on the patio and then invite your guests back into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The hotel's Camp restaurant seats up to 300 and is the perfect setting for a true Maine affair, with rustic upscale decor and an equally as impressive menu.
Continuing on the upscale theme, and a bit more intimate and casual, Sliders Restaurant at the Jordan Hotel provides the feel of a mountain lodge with the service and amenities of a four-season resort. This newly renovated post-and-beam restaurant with room for up to 150 guests features stunning views of the adjacent Jordan Bowl and easy access to hotel's new outdoor wedding venue. Both the large sun deck and the sprawling back lawn are available for an outdoor ceremony or cocktail reception.
If your idea of a dream wedding involves riding to the top of a mountain on a chairlift, saying your vows at 3,600 feet, and then dancing the night away in a mid-mountain ski lodge, then the Peak Lodge is for you (and your party of up to 180 guests). Directly atop North Peak, our Peak Lodge offers direct access to an outdoor ceremony setting with breathtaking views of the Sunday River Valley and Mahoosuc Mountain Range. Have your reception inside the lodge and end your night with a starry Chondola lift ride back down before heading back to your hotel. Once the location has been decided on, the icing on the wedding cake, so to speak, remains the many things to do while here.
The Sunday River Country Club was recently named the "#1 Public Course in Maine" by Golfweek magazine, while Yankee magazine recently listed Sunday River Resort as the "Best Mountain Playground," thanks to activities like mountain biking, hiking, scenic lift rides, zipline tours.
The area has so much to do year-round that it's also been highlighted numerous times in Down East, the Boston Globe, and Maine magazine thanks to its unique blend of shops, restaurants, and easy access to outdoor recreation suitable for all ages and abilities.
