Your wedding day is one of the most special moments in your life, and choosing the perfect venue sets the stage for unforgettable memories. Nestled amidst the picturesque Pocono Mountains, Skytop Lodge offers a breathtaking backdrop for couples seeking a unique and enchanting wedding reception. 

From our stunning natural surroundings to our elegant facilities, Skytop provides the ideal setting to celebrate love in style. Let’s explore some innovative ideas to make your wedding reception at Skytop Lodge truly extraordinary.

Enchanting Decor

  • Nature-Inspired Elegance: Take advantage of Skytop’s natural beauty by incorporating elements of the outdoors into your decor. Adorn tables with rustic centerpieces featuring wildflowers, branches, and moss. Use earthy tones like greens, browns, and ivory to complement the surrounding landscape.
  • Twinkling Lights: Create a magical ambiance by stringing fairy lights across the reception venue. Drape them along tree branches, wrap them around pillars, or hang them from the ceiling to add a touch of sparkle to the evening festivities. The soft glow of lights against the backdrop of the night sky will mesmerize your guests.
  • Personalized Touches: Infuse your personalities into the decor with personalized details. Consider incorporating elements that reflect your interests, hobbies, or cultural backgrounds. From custom signage to themed table settings, these personal touches will make your reception truly unique and memorable.
  • Interactive Stations: Set up interactive stations throughout the venue to keep guests entertained. Offer activities like DIY flower crown-making, wine tasting, or a photo booth with props inspired by the surrounding wilderness. These stations provide fun opportunities for guests to mingle and create lasting memories.

Thoughtful Schedule

  • Scenic Ceremony: Exchange vows against the backdrop of our stunning natural landscape. Choose a picturesque outdoor location to say “I do” surrounded by breathtaking views. Let nature be your backdrop as you begin your journey as a married couple.
  • Cocktail Hour with a View: Treat your guests to a memorable cocktail hour overlooking the scenic vistas of the Pocono Mountains. Arrange for a selection of signature cocktails inspired by the season, complemented by locally sourced hors d’oeuvres. Encourage guests to explore the grounds and take in the beauty of their surroundings.
  • Elegant Reception: Transition seamlessly from cocktail hour to a lavish reception in our Evergreen Ballroom. Dance the night away as you celebrate your love surrounded by friends and family. Customize your menu with delectable dishes crafted by Skytop’s talented culinary team, ensuring a dining experience that delights the senses.
  • Late-Night Bonfire: Extend the celebration into the night with a cozy bonfire under the starlit sky. Gather around the firepit with your loved ones, roast marshmallows, and share stories as you bask in the warmth of the fire. It’s the perfect way to conclude a magical day and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
