With amazing views and picturesque scenery, an Alta Peruvian Lodge wedding is the ideal summer spot for outdoor ceremonies and intimate receptions. Events are proudly welcomed in-between ski seasons, June through September. The Alta Peruvian Lodge is happy to have their grounds open for weddings and ceremonies during the summer and offer you the opportunity to plan your own event with the caterer of your choice. It’s easy to impress your guests for your Alta Peruvian Lodge wedding with the majestic sight of Mount Superior as your backdrop. I really appreciate their general manager, Todd, taking the time to answer some questions about this beautiful mountain wedding venue.
