Imagine exchanging vows under a garlanded arch with the lake in the distance, or dancing beneath glittering lights in an elegant lakeview tent. Even winter weddings have their link to the outdoors, with a couple arriving by horse-drawn sleigh or enjoying a quiet moment on an iced-over pond. Resort activities for guests at the resort, which sits on 500 acres of unspoiled fields and forests, range from golf and tennis to pools, saunas and hot tubs. Let experienced wedding planners help you choose from varied venues, catering menus (including a lobster bake option) and suggested vendors.

A little bit of mountain heaven will elevate your ceremony, reception at this resort
Imagine your wedding ceremony (and photos!) in a gazebo on the manicured lawn of White Mountain Hotel and Resort, nestled beneath White Horse Ledge. Afterward, you will dine on extraordinary cuisine, from raw bar stations to roast sirloin to chocolate fountains and scrumptious cake in a billowing tent, then dance under a canopy of mountain stars. Experienced wedding coordinators will help you plan every detail of your outdoor wedding, regardless of size, from the bride’s dramatic arrival (a horse-drawn carriage?) to table centerpieces (an ice sculpture?). Other details you can leave in the staff’s hands: spa services, a BBQ or lobster bake rehearsal dinner, and booking the honeymoon suite for you and a block of luxurious accommodations for your guests.
