Some of the most beautiful country can be found in Paradise Valley. Chico Hot Springs and Resort is nestled in the valley and for couples looking to take in all the beauty of the area, it is the dream location for an intimate winter wedding. From a cozy dinner in the wine cellar to an outdoor ceremony that will take your breath away, and even an adventurous dog sledding session for the newlyweds the next day, you’ll fall even more in love with this one of a kind location.
Picture this: it’s a beautiful day with just enough sparkling white snow to cover the ground. The Field of Dreams is decorated perfectly for the bride and groom’s vows, as a storm brews in the distance. With only the couple’s closest friends and family, celebrating an intimate ceremony is just what this place was made for.
With its 360 degree views of Paradise Valley, The Field of Dreams gazebo is a picture-perfect location year-round. Greenery accented by wooden chairs and candles is all you need to create a dreamy ceremony space. This outdoor wedding venue is situated on the bench above the day spa and main resort. A large gazebo anchors the site to center on the mountain views. Imagine Emigrant Peak as the backdrop for your ceremony and the sweep of Montana’s big sky as the two of you gather with your guests to share your vows.
Stay warm through the vows in a fabulous leather jacket – a statement like this adds so much to the entire mood! All brides should probably have a leather jacket, a bold colored leather jacket. Add some mountains and a little champagne and you’ve got yourself the perfect place to say “I do”!
Situated behind the historic main lodge you’ll find the rustic stone wine cellar. For those planning an intimate wedding, host your dinner or rehearsal party for 16 guests here with a beautiful wooden harvest table and the old world charm playing perfectly against a pop of navy and rich florals. Heavy candlelight and gold accents make the room come alive and invites guests to cozy up for an evening of cheers, delicious bites, and a good time celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs.
Tis’ the season for snow adventures! The day after your Chico “I Do,” plan a day filled with the best of Paradise Valley with a dogsledding excursion by the Absaroka Dogsled Treks. Before the sled takes off, the yapping of eager huskies fills the air. Then: absolute silence. The dogs dash forward, padding quietly through the snow as they were bred to do, towing their riders alongside a river and through a forest tunnel of rocks and evergreens that rise all around. Experience the wonderful world of a musher!
The whole experience of seeing the dogs work and how well behaved they are is incredible, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this fun! Tie in your wedding color theme and bring a warm, colored blanket to snuggle up with one another. Say goodbye to the adorable puppies and relive the adventures of the past couple days by enjoying the landscape and wedded bliss while sipping on creamy hot cocoa.
Personalized service is the hallmark at Chico. This is your special day, your place, and your vision; the team will facilitate the planning so that your event is exceptional!
