If you’re looking for something a little more unique, try Matsuhisa located in the Solaris in Vail Village. With a unique social dining style, not only will you discover extraordinary cuisine, but also mix and mingle with your guests. The atmosphere at Matsuhisa shouldn’t be missed!

Bridesmaid and Groomsmen Activities

The day of the wedding is sure to be busy but the Vail Valley has incredible activities for the bridal party that will leave everyone relaxed and rejuvenated for the big event.

Send the men to EagleVail Golf Club for male bonding in the great outdoors. Locals love the EagleVail Golf Course for all the wildlife nearby, so keep a sharp eye for moose! If the guys are looking for something a little more rugged, SAGE Outdoor Adventures has an excellent clay-shooting course that will bring out their competitive sides.

For the ladies, we recommend spending the day at the Westin Riverfront’s Spa Anjali and fitness club. The yoga classes are a huge hit with the Vail Valley yogis and Spa Anjali’s salon is sure to bring serenity before the “I Dos”.

Ceremony Locations

A local favorite for wedding ceremony locations is the EagleVail Pavilion situated between Vail and Beaver Creek resorts. This perfect location comes equipped with spacious event lawns, a pond, and wrap-around decks. The EagleVail Pavilion has everything that locals love about the Vail Valley.

For those looking for something a little more unique, Camp Hale Weddings & Events with Nova Guides offers an outdoor location in historical Camp Hale at the base of 12,500-foot peaks. The peaceful high mountain setting is a perfect venue to start a new life together.
