Love Notes
I am still in awe over how beautiful our wedding was and 90% of that can be attributed to The Black Diamond Lodge. We were looking for something where we could have an intimate, full weekend get together with only our closest friends and family and we could not have found a more perfect location. The first night we were able to host our rehearsal dinner in the Columbine room, followed by socializing and yard games out on the back patio and various games in the game room. We had so much fun we had to force ourselves to go to sleep so we were fresh the next day! The spa area for the bride to get ready was such a nice backdrop for all of our pictures- huge plus that we got the balcony overlooking a gorgeous mountain scene. Then, of course, comes the incredible ceremony site in the meadow. We could have had 0 decorations or flowers and it still would have been the most beautiful wedding I had ever seen. Amber and her team at the lodge take care of everything! They are so on top of it and can foresee and plan for anything unexpected. I didn’t have time to enjoy the hot tubs or steam room/sauna but they were a huge hit with our guests. I would absolutely recommend the BDL to anyone who is having an event or even just a get together. Thank you to all of the incredible hard workers!
