With COVID-19 canceling gatherings and events throughout the start of 2020, Tamarack Resort wants to ensure couples who had to postpone wedding plans have a chance to celebrate their union in a unique way.

With COVID-19 canceling gatherings and events throughout the start of 2020, Tamarack Resort wants to ensure couples who had to postpone wedding plans have a chance to celebrate their union in a unique way.

On Sept. 12, Tamarack will host up to 16 couples as they exchange their vows during a 30-minute ceremony overlooking the stunning Lake Cascade. The Mid-Mountain Elopement Package provides a scenic option for lovebirds whose 2020 wedding plans have been scrapped due to COVID-19. Tamarack Resort’s safe, affordable alternative makes the best of a tough situation by offering a destination experience with a $200 price tag.

The $200 package for elopement or vow-renewal includes a 30-minute ceremony where the couple can wear their wedding attire and ride the scenic Tamarack Express chairlift to mid-mountain.

“This year was a tough year for couples planning to get married,” says Hayley Johnson, Wedding & Corporate Sales Manager at Tamarack Resort. “We want to do our part to help these couples have the special wedding day they deserve while respecting the guidelines and restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Our hope is that couples can have a safe and memorable wedding day despite the changes they’ve had to make to their weddings.”

Couples will also get to enjoy their first dance with a complimentary champagne toast and cupcakes provided by Stacey Cakes before riding the chairlift down and being shuttled to the Village at Tamarack.

Up to ten of each couple’s closest friends and family can purchase additional lift tickets to attend the ceremony. Bouquets can be pre-ordered through McCall Weddings. Samantha Sias Photography will be available to capture each ceremony and offer couples the chance to purchase their keepsake photos. Couples will also have the opportunity to make a honeymoon stay out of the experience by enjoying a 15% discount at the lodge for the weekend, with the option of spa- and amenity-package upgrades.

Fifteen of the 30-minute ceremony blocks will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The link to book is here.

The last package will be awarded to a couple through a contest. The winning bride and groom will win the entire $200 package for free, along with a free night stay at Tamarack Lodge. To enter, interested couples must submit an essay to groups@tamarackidaho.com describing their original wedding plans and how they have had to change them due to COVID-19. A panel of Tamarack Resort judges will review the essays and choose a winner for a free ceremony experience. The deadline to enter is July 1, and the winner will be announced July 7.
