Ready to start planning your own special day? Keep reading to learn 5 reasons why Cougar Ridge is the ultimate wedding destination.

1. The Breathtaking Scenery

Where you choose to exchange vows with the love of your life won’t change the love and meaning behind them. But it doesn’t hurt to exchange them in a breathtaking setting.

Cougar Ridge is surrounded by a stunning red rock landscape. On a clear day, the bright blue sky brings the rocky landscape to life in even more vibrant color. Even if you’re captivated by your soon-to-be-spouse rather than your surroundings, you’ll come away with incredible pictures that you’ll love to share, display, and look back on for years to come.

2. Private Luxury Accommodations

Planning a destination wedding isn’t without some challenges. One of the biggest is combining a short vacation with your big day for your guests. You certainly want your guests to have fun. But setting aside time for activities, while also navigating getting to and from off-site accommodations and the wedding venue, planning meals at restaurants, or booking tours can make your wedding planning even more complicated.

While you could have your guests stay at different local hotels and other accommodations, having everyone stay on location in the same place can truly enhance your destination nuptials. Whether you want to turn your destination wedding into a full, weekend-long event or simply want to make sure that no one has to drive back to their hotel room after dancing the night away, you can’t beat having your accommodations and venue on-site at Cougar Ridge.

For the bride and groom, the bridal party, and close family, the luxury accommodations at Cougar Ridge will make getting ready for the big moment even more special.

3. Easy Access to Capitol Reef National Park

While the Pavilion at Cougar Ridge can accommodate large weddings, if you and your future spouse prefer something more low-key, we can help with that as well. With easy access to nearby Capitol Reef National Park, we can help you plan the perfect intimate elopement in one of the nation’s most beautiful settings.

Our Villas provide private, luxurious accommodations that are perfect for kicking off your new life together. Consider extending your wedding weekend with a honeymoon kick-off, too. You can book on-site massages, stroll the property, take in our stunning sunsets, and more.

4. A Stunning Pavilion 

If something more traditional than an elopement in a national park is more your style, you’re in luck. Cougar Ridge is home to a beautiful venue. The Pavilion can accommodate 150 or more guests. This beautiful venue is inspired by the stunning landscapes around Cougar Ridge. Watch the sun set against the red rock cliffs in the background as you cut your wedding cake. Dine on delicious catered food in a rustic, yet luxurious remodeled barn. 

From intimate ceremonies to elaborate receptions and fun-filled after-parties that stretch late into the night, we can accommodate every wedding vision here at Cougar Ridge.

5. We Make Planning a Breeze

While we can accommodate any size and shape of wedding here at Cougar Ridge, we offer more than just a venue; we can also help you plan and coordinate your dream event.
