If you haven’t experienced Priest Lake or Elkins Resort, come visit and you’ll discover for yourself why Elkins Resort is the perfect venue for your wedding. Words cannot describe the serene beauty of the landscape and water that will create your wedding backdrop. You’ll love your wedding photos with the snow-capped mountains in the background. Your wedding party and guests will greatly enjoy the rustic, cozy cabins and the warm, glowing fireplace.


  • Venue discount of course!
    We offer a significant discount for booking a wedding with us in the cooler months. Your guests will also enjoy discounted lodging if they choose to stay overnight.
  • Be unique.
    While growing in popularity, a winter wedding is not as common as celebrating nuptials in the summer months. Winter weddings are perfect for smaller events as they provide a more intimate and cozy atmosphere.
  • With the sun setting earlier, you can start festivities off sooner! Set the mood early and enjoy the ambiance of candlelight and fireplace lighting. Winter is a beautiful time of year, and Elkins Resort offers the most pristine backdrop with snow covered mountains, tall evergreens, and the calm waters of Priest Lake.
  • Skip the weather stress.
    You won’t have to worry about preparing for the worst in weather. It’s already a given that it will be chilly and if it snows, it’s a bonus! Having your ceremony and reception set for indoors spares you of the stress of unwanted rain or hot sunrays that are too much to handle.
  • Have more time for you.
    A huge bonus to a winter wedding is avoiding coordinating with your vendors during the peak season. They’ll have more availability and energy for fulfilling appointments and special requests. No need to squeeze in your dress and suit fittings at the same time as everyone else.
  • What better timing than to get married during the most romantic season? Whether you start a new year fresh as a married couple or celebrate nuptials for Valentines, you’ll have the perfect setting and shared romantic vibe for getting hitched.
  • Better attendance.
    Winter weddings often have better attendance as it is unlikely your guests have been to an event in a while. They’ll be ready for a celebration and you’ll avoid getting lost in the sea of plans, vacations and other weddings during the summer.
  • Have the best of both worlds!
    Enjoy a snowy wedding day and book your honeymoon to the tropics! You may even get away with less expensive travel plans in the off-season, plus avoid the storm seasons.
