Nice! My cousin is actually getting married on a mountaintop in New Hampshire in September I believe. Should make for a beautiful view! It’s also a great venue because the venues on the east coast are so expensive so they’re probably saving a lot!

Red Fish Lake in Idaho. I would have loved to get married there but decided I didn’t want to long distance plan a wedding as I was living in Colorado at the time.

I live in Colorado and I can think of so many places here that are perfect for what you’re looking for. Check out Evergreen, CO venues. I’m getting married on a mountain in Breckinridge that is gorgeous. Reach out to me if you have any specific questions about venues here! I’m happy to help!

Look up Della Terra Mountain Chateau in Colorado. That’s where we got married this winter. It is STUNNING. The facility is amazing, great inclusions, 5 star service and experience.my photos don’t do it justice because this is just what’s on my phone

Inland PNW born and raised here! The angular mountains you’re looking for are certain ranges of the Rockies, which you can best find in Colorado or along the Canadian border. You might be happy with some of the Western Washington mountains too, like what you can see at Mount Rainier National Park.

Your first picture is at Lake Moraine in Alberta, and I know you can get married at Lake Louise at the hotel there, but I don’t know any details. I’ve seen some recaps on here actually – you might search for the venue that way.

Red Fish Lake, mentioned above, is an interesting idea but it’s so remote that I have a hard time imagining logistics. There must be a venue or something though.

I personally throw my hat in for Glacier National Park with the northern mountains as your backdrop. The Whitefish area has tons of upscale amenities and options for photography, catering, etc. and there’s a large lodge not very far into the park where I’m sure you could hold a reception. Check out the pictures in this article to see if that’s what you’re going for. https://www.mariannewiest.com/2018/01/03/glacier-national-park-wedding/

Montana has some wonderful venues – esp in the Bozeman/Big Sky area.

With a fall wedding you’ll want to consider what the venue will look like if there are bad wildfires. I wanted a mountain backdrop too, but ended up deciding on a more forested setting so the pictures will still be nice even if it’s smoky. Also, I feel like the mountains tend to be the most beautiful in the spring, when things are green and the mountains are still snowy. Fall is beautiful too, but it’s definitely different. Is your date flexible? June wasn’t an option for us, but if all dates were open to me, I definitely would have picked early June.

Not sure what the typical ones are, but a friend just got married at Sapphire Point Overlook (Colorado) and it was gorgeous! Good luck bee!

I know you said the US but if you’re open to Canada you can get married at the top of the gondola at Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park. (Pic courtesy of Google)

These are some gorgeous settings! 

When I visited Lake Tahoe a while ago, it seemed like the most heavenly place on earth and has epic scenery that would lend itself beautifully for a wedding.

I’d go for Ouray Colorado if I could have.  We compromised by getting married in Moab (closer to sea level for the person that mattered for) and a cliff/mountain view.  Then it rained so we couldn’t see them anyway, hah.  Andrews Lake, also in Colorado, south of Silverton, is another gorgeous site I’d ahve loved to use, but you’d be starting from scratch.

Aim for as close to your guests as is feasible though… view or not, you’ll find a lot pass if they have to travel too far – what mountains are you located closest to?

A lot of ski areas in Colorado, such as Loveland ski, do weddings and are gorgeous

Flagstaff mountain in Boulder (this one is affordable and stunning)

Anything in Aspen or Vail, as long as price isn’t an issue they are beautiful

Anything in Estes Park

I just realized, you want to get married in the fall. Go to Aspen, just like the name the town is filled with Aspens, and they turn the most gorgeous yellow color right around the end of September or beginning of October
