Winter Wonderland Weddings at Skytop | Poconos Hotels

Skytop Lodge has been one of the most coveted Poconos hotels for weddings since 1928. Couples choose the timeless beauty of Skytop, atop the breathtaking Pocono Mountains, for their weddings year-round.

Although summer remains the most common season to say “I do,” winter weddings are becoming more popular. According to Bridal Guide magazine, December is now the third most popular month for weddings.

Here are the top three reasons to have a winter wedding at Skytop Lodg:.

Winter Weather

Of all the seasons, winter has the most predictable weather in the Poconos. In spring, summer, and fall, couples need to plan for the probability that the weather may not cooperate on their wedding day. In the winter, you can plan on it being cold and likely snowy outside. But no need to worry If it does happen to snow on your wedding day; this just adds to the romantic ambiance.


The natural light of winter, especially in the mornings, is perfect for photography. Although rain on your wedding day might bring good luck, snow on your wedding promises extraordinary photographs. Freshly fallen snow transforms Skytop Lodge into a romantic winter wonderland. It becomes the perfect backdrop to timeless, magical wedding photos you will cherish for the rest of your life.


At Skytop Lodge, our commitment to world-class service, along with our exceptional location has made us one of the top Poconos hotels for weddings. As a result, our ceremony and reception venues are often booked in the summer far in advance.

During the winter, we are more likely to be able to accommodate your wedding for exactly where and when you want it. Whether you are planning an intimate ceremony ideal for our Streamside Lodge or a grand celebration better suited for the Evergreen Ballroom, we will generally have more availability in the winter.

Start your happily ever after in a winter wonderland at Skytop Lodge, where we have been setting the standard of luxury Poconos hotels and wedding venues since 1928. For more information, submit our online wedding request form or contact us today.
