Park City’s Most Beautiful and Hippest Wedding Venues
So who thought that Summer was never going to arrive in Utah? I certainly had my doubts, that’s for sure! After a very snowy wet spring, the warm weather has finally arrived in Utah! And with the warm weather and blooming flowers, it’s the perfect time to start talking about weddings. Wait what!? Me + wedding advice? WHY on earth …oh wait- guess who just got engaged! That’s right, I’m gettin’ hitched!
After six years of dating, Kevin popped the question in Laguna Beach last month and we are both super excited to start planning the perfect Park City Wedding! I figured since I run a food blog about Park City, I might as well drag you all with me through my wedding planning process just in case you are yearning for some Park City wedding inspiration. So let the planning begin.

Grace, taste, and effortless superiority. Deer Valley creates weddings that families and guests will remember for years to come.

Check out their cake gallery even if you decide to get married somewhere else. You can’t go wrong with a Deer Valley cake!
If you’re not looking for the typical Park City resort themed wedding, make sure to check out Park City’s very own High West Whiskey Distillery. My friends are actually getting married there this summer and I CANNOT WAIT to go! High West offers an incredibly hip saloon atmosphere with a bit of elegance tossed in. High West has three floor plans for your wedding reception and can host up to 175 people. Plus their chef James Dumas is fabulous at customizing menus for large groups and can contains up to six different entrees of your choice for your guests.
Blame it on my inner art geek, but I can’t help imagining the perfect artsy wedding at Kimball Art Center. I love gallery spaces because they boast open floor plans, can be decorated with fabulous glam, and are a step away from the traditional typical wedding. Kimball offers 4 rental options for wedding events. The Main Gallery, Garage Gallery, Badami Gallery, and their amazing outdoor patio. Plus, having a wedding at Kimball Art Center is means that you are supporting an amazing center for the arts in Park City. Good causes and good times, a win win wedding!
5. Sky Lodge
Just steps up from the Kimball Art Center is my favorite lodge in Park City. The Sky Lodge is rich with contemporary flair and is the perfect spot for the modern hip bride. Plus they have fantastic catering, three great locations to pick from, and one of the best views of the mountains from Main Street. From booking the Sky Lodge Spa for your wedding party, taking over the wine room for a rehearsal dinner, or indulging in their famous cocktails from Sky Blue bar, you can be assured that you will be pampered like royalty. My personal favorite part of the Sky Lodge is the rooftop bar, the perfect spot for a rockin’ evening reception with views to die for! Imagine your wedding in a beautifully furnished rooftop bar decked out in style followed by sipping champagne and kissing your husband-to-be on the incredible patio overlooking Old Town. Picture perfect! Make sure to check it!
Whether you are having a small intimate reception or a large dinner party up to 200 of your closest family and friends, Riverhorse on Main is definitely a spot to check out for your wedding reception. Riverhorse has easily my favorite restaurant set-up in Utah. I’ve often told the manager that given the chance, I’d literally move right in to their large Soho Loft like space and call it my own. Plus, you just cannot beat their mouth-watering menus! With plenty of room for a live band, lots of dance space, an amazing patio overlooking Main Street, and 5 star 4 diamond pro service, Riverhorse might just offer one of the coolest wedding receptions in Park City.
Needless to say, there are a ton of other great Park City wedding venues that I didn’t list. I’m still in the process of checking out St. Regis, Waldorf Astoria, Park Meadow Country Club, and a few other Park City hotspots. Hopefully I’ll have those checked off my “to look at” list by the end of the month. I’ll keep you posted =). In the meantime, Happy Wedding Planning!
