I’m a mountain girl through and through, so anything that consists of wildflowers, waterfalls and mountains has me feeling a certain type of way. Log Haven is an idyllic destination wedding location in the mountains of Salt Lake City and hosts guests with a variety of weekend activities. Those activities include skiing, hiking, biking and golfing. Located just 30 minutes from 4 different ski resorts known for world-class skiing and outdoor activities, you can’t go wrong with Log Haven as your wedding venue. Private dining rooms, open meadows, 40 acres of private land including a pristine lake nestled in the mountains of the Wasatch National Forest along with a nationally acclaimed chef and full service wedding event planning are only a few of the amazing features that you’ll get to experience for your Log Haven wedding.


Q+A About Log Haven Weddings

  • How much do your Wedding Packages cost? 

A:  A Log Haven Wedding can vary greatly in size, incorporate multiple locations of the restaurant property, and can create a customized food & beverage plan, so it is not possible to quote a general package price for each wedding.

(Food & Beverage minimums may apply).
