Your Guide to a Vail Mountain Wedding

Vail is a perfect mountain setting for any wedding; the town offers an abundance of activities for your guests during every season, the location is easily accessible for out of town guests traveling from Denver International Airport and did we mention the scenery? You will celebrate your love in one of the world’s most gorgeous settings, with the majestic panoramic views of the Vail Valley and Gore Mountain Range as a backdrop to all of your festivities.

Solaris Residences is an ideal home base for wedding guests, especially with the Solaris Personal Assistants, who are committed to providing visitors with a stress-free and customized experience. Personal Assistants are available to take care of tasks prior to arrival such as grocery shopping, spa reservations, mountain bike rentals and more, making it simple for guests who may not be familiar with the area to get the most out of their trip. Additionally, guests have access to Solaris’ resort-style amenities, which include a private spa with three treatment rooms, a fitness facility, childcare and a heated indoor pool with hot tub.

Furthermore, the accommodations at Solaris aren’t just guestrooms, they are true Residences. Ranging in size from a 1,000 sq. ft. studio to a 6,500 sq. ft. six-bedroom plus den penthouse, the Residences are ideal when trying to accommodate extended families and various generations. Kids will love the bunk rooms; and grandparents and other family members will love the opportunity to stay in one spacious unit, and spend time with loved ones by sharing a gourmet kitchen, laundry room and family room, but still enjoy the comfort of individual bathrooms and amenities. And, with a location in the heart of Vail Village, all of your guests can easily walk anywhere they’d like to go!


Matsuhisa is the perfect setting for memorable rehearsal dinners. One of only five Matsuhisas around the world, the famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s exquisite establishment is located in the lower level of Solaris and offers delectable dishes. The views of Vail Mountain from Matsuhisa are also stunning and help to set the mood for a mountain wedding.


Looking for something a little more casual? Bol, Vail’s new hot spot, offers a full service dining room, a 60-ft. bar and ten lanes of bowling in a sleek and modern atmosphere. Also conveniently located in the Solaris Plaa, the menu features Eaton Ranch Beef, house made flatbread pizzas, more than 225 wines by the bottle and a variety of gluten free options. Dining is available family style, buffet style or traditional style with a list of preselected items for guests to choose from.


Leading up to the big day, Vail offers both fun and relaxing activities for bachelor and bachelorette parties. For the men, an abundance of premier golf courses are available within a short distance of Vail Village, including Beaver Creek Golf Club and Eagle Ranch Golf Club. The bride and her party will appreciate the world-class spa services available at Solaris, and for an outdoor adventure, Beaver Creek Stables is a short drive away and offers horseback rides through beautiful mountains, with picnic services available. Vail Village also offers fun nightlife, from the famous Red Lion with live acoustic music nightly, to Shakedown Bar and Garfinkel’s.

At the end of the night, head back to the Solaris Penthouse, which offers enough room for everyone with its six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Wake up to complimentary pastries and coffee before taking the complimentary shuttle to breakfast, shopping or the day’s first excursion.
