  • I had my wedding on September 19th 2020 at Lydia Mountain Lodge. The staff was so incredibly helpful before, during, and after the wedding. They had the entire event hall set up to my specifications by the time I arrived on Friday and they worked the whole evening to make the wedding perfect. Even had the event hall cleaned up the next morning before I woke up. They were attentive to detail, flexible with me during the pandemic, and did everything they could to make my day perfect. From having rooms to host the entire bridal party the whole weekend, to an amazing "glam room" that myself and the bridesmaids could get ready in, it was a perfect day. I wouldn't change a thing.
