Today’s outdoor wedding inspiration proves that you CAN have it all when it comes to a wedding venue! Set in the dazzling landscape of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, Chalet View Lodge has quickly become a dream wedding venue of ours for a scenic, open-air wedding. Surrounded by stunning views, this all-inclusive resort gives us endless inspiration for a dreamy day beneath the trees.

For the couple who wants to exchange vows enveloped by natural beauty, Chalet View Lodge is a dreamy choice of venue. Between its woodland trees, mountain views, and a serene pond, it’s naturally rustic and romantic; you can add as much or as little decor as you’d like and it would still stun!

But the best part? Chalet View Lodge has all the elements for a memorable weekend for all of your guests. Not only do the rustic lodging options make you feel like you’re glamping with all of your closest friends, but there’s plenty to do when you’re not busy with executing your big day. The girls might want to unwind in the relaxing spa or kick back by the pool while the boys fish at the pond or tee off at the golf course. Meet up after at the onsite brewery for a celebratory pint!

Now for some inspiration to decorate your outdoor wedding! We’ve rounded up the best ideas from real weddings at Chalet View Lodge from their Pin-worthy blog Lost Sierra Love. Read all the reasons we love these ideas & afterward, you’ll want to see this glorious real wedding featured on Bridal Musings!

Limitless Florals & Decor

Whether you’re a bohemian bride, modern & minimalist, or lush & romantic, think of Chalet View Lodge like a blank canvas to design your vision. We love what past weddings have done with pampas grass, mixed florals, and earthy tones – perfect for a Lost Sierra backdrop. In colder months, the reception tent looks amazing with mood lighting and a rich color palette.

All Seasons Wedding Inspo

Don’t think that just because this spot is nestled in the mountains that acclimate weather will impede your big day. This resort is beautiful in all seasons, but especially in the vibrant fall foliage and snowy throes of winter. Stay warm while taking in the serene views under a spacious clear tent provided by the property.

Cute Tailor Vendors

Last but certainly NOT least, we’d be remiss not to mention the cutest little trailer bar you ever did see. We envision so many possibilities for a dreamy cocktail hour in this spot, and especially love that this wedding brought in furniture for maximum lounging!
