Located 20 minutes from Park City, The Lodge at Blue Sky, Auberge Resorts Collection, sits nestled in the Wasatch mountains on a 3,500-acre ranch. Surrounded by panoramic peak and valley views, Blue Sky offers an impressive and diverse selection of ceremony locations, both indoors and outdoors. “Each space showcases Utah’s wild elegance and profoundly reconnects guests with the natural environment at every opportunity,” says Cait Ferguson, Event Sales Manager for The Lodge at Blue Sky.
One of the largest venues is an 8,000-square-foot rustic barn that once served as the original indoor riding arena for Blue Sky, crafted from upcycled local barnwood. For more intimate gatherings, two mountaintop yurts each boast stunning mountain and valley vistas with expansive outdoor terraces for outdoor ceremonies, while a wood-burning stove keeps things toasty inside for private dinners or post-ceremony toasts. A log cabin dating back to the late 1800s serves as Blue Sky’s outpost saloon, and the adjacent high-alpine field remains popular for ceremonies, receptions or rehearsal dinners.
The team members of Blue Sky are genuine stewards of the earth, and have truly taken the theme of nature-based weddings to heart. Impressive sustainable practices are implemented with each event. Blue Sky uses zero single-use plastics; sources many of its ingredients from within 100 miles of the resort; grows most of its own produce, eggs and fresh honey at the female-led Gracie’s Farm; composts all food from Yuta, the signature restaurant (so that it can be used in regenerative farming initiatives); utilizes biodegradable clay discs at its world-class sporting clay range; and has its own wastewater treatment facility to thoroughly clean any wastewater before it gets returned to the earth. These examples are just a few in the long list of sustainability initiatives used at Blue Sky.
In today’s industry, couples have never-ending options for unique ways to exchange their vows and celebrate with their loved ones. Whether you are looking for an epic mountaintop elopement by helicopter, an intimate ceremony in the cozy fire-lit Yurt, or a large-scale celebration in the restored bar, Blue Sky has a setting to fit each couple’s signature style.
“I’m constantly inspired by our clients and talented vendors. Listening to their stories, being a part of the creative process and witnessing a vision come to life with our property as the backdrop is exhilarating.” —Cait Ferguson, Event Sales Manager

This pandemic has truly shown that with creativity and flexibility, anything is possible when it comes to celebrating love. This season, as couples continue with that passion, our team will also continue to curate the best possible guest experiences by infusing Western-inspired activities and meaningful moments into each celebration.
We have truly loved the surge in micro-weddings and elevated elopements. Couples are more focused on what matters most: reconnecting with loved ones and forming lifelong memories. Smaller ceremonies are also not necessarily tied to weekends; intimate weekday celebrations are ideal and usually have more availability than Saturdays, which can book up quickly. Weekday ceremonies can be parlayed into a longer, more meaningful vacation for all.
Intimate weddings and elevated elopements allow you to get creative with your budget, leaving more room to spend on meaningful experiences to enjoy with your loved ones such as fly fishing, organic farm school classes or crystal bowl sound bathing meditation.
