An outdoor wedding or reception is ideal between the months of June and September. Our property offers several areas where a tent would blend perfectly with our mountain landscape and perennial gardens. One of the most significant advantages to outdoor weddings is that the size of your wedding is limited only by the size of your tent. The rental of a tent for all outdoor functions is required by the Trapp Family Lodge as a safety measure in case of inclement weather. We are happy to make all rental arrangements for your wedding; from tents to china, if you wish. Listed below are brief descriptions of our outdoor venues.
The Wedding Meadow
Our large hilltop Wedding Meadow, with a panoramic view of the mountain ranges surrounding Stowe, is secluded from the Main Lodge — an idyllic setting for a tented wedding ceremony or reception. Here, truly, the sky is the limit.
Near the large permanent tent in the wedding meadow is a small birch grove, offering a natural, woodsy venue for an intimate wedding.
The Garden Court
This picturesque location is nestled in a quiet corner of the front lawn. Surrounded by perennial gardens and evergreens this site is close enough to The Lounge entrance to be convenient for indoor/outdoor functions, yet secluded enough to offer privacy. This site can beautifully accommodate a wedding tent.
The Concert Meadow
With the broad vistas of Nebraska Valley as its backdrop, this is a dramatically beautiful setting for any occasion, including our summer “Concerts in the Meadow”. We are pleased to offer our concert stage for your wedding ceremony. The gradual slope of the lawn provides an unobstructed view for all your guests. Following reception can be in a nearby outdoor setting, or indoors.
