Wisp Real Weddings

Annemarie and Adam G. - 6.11.16

Annemarie and Adam came to Wisp Resort seeking the perfect place to host a wedding celebration with a “light, garden party feel with lots of flowers.” The couple fell in love with the high, silk-draped ceilings, golf course views, and open, light-filled space of the Mountain Mist Tent. Add in the amenities offered by Wisp Resort and the activities in the Deep Creek Lake area, and they knew this was the place!

The bride and groom both grew up in West Virginia, and were engaged in Morgantown on February 6, 2015. They are “die hard Mountaineer fans,” with a love of summer, travelling and boating. They are also a couple of self-proclaimed food connoisseurs – the Wisp Resort catering staff was all too happy to meet their standards with the delightful selections offered within the Mountain Meadow dinner package.

Many couples enjoy making an entire wedding-weekend celebration out of their nuptials when traveling to Wisp Resort and Deep Creek Lake. Annemarie and Adam kicked off their weekend-long celebration with cocktails on the McHenry Lodge Deck and rehearsal dinner in Wispers Bar.         

The next day the couple was married at St. Peter the Apostle Church in Oakland, Maryland. Cocktail hour kicked off on the patio of the Mountain Mist Tent as their guests returned to the Resort. Elaborate displays of fresh fruit with Grand Marnier whipped cream and imported and domestic cheeses with crackers were served alongside a variety of other hors d’oeuvres. After a brief respite with their bridal party at their private cocktail hour in the Sundown Village, the newlyweds were introduced into the tent to the cheers of their guests! The party officially got started with toasts to the couple before dinner, and gave way to dancing until midnight. The evening ended with a sparkler send off – guests lined the path from the Tent, as Annemarie and Adam made their way to a get-away golf cart.

The next morning, a farewell brunch, featuring the bride’s favorite Crème Brulee French Toast, was held in the Crawford Room of The Lodge at Wisp.

“An unforgettable moment of the weekend was being introduced as husband and wife into the reception! The staff and everyone we interacted with were always very helpful and accommodating to our needs! Because they loved Wisp Resort so much, we had family and friend that ended up going back for a vacation later that summer!”

The wedding party kept their celebration going all weekend long by renting a boat and enjoying time on Deep Creek Lake. The bride also rode the Mountain Coaster at Wisp Resort with her family!
