For the love of our beautiful state, this is a list of Forest Wedding Venues in Idaho. Now place some flowers in your hair and let’s get married in the woods. Enjoy this comprehensive list of my favorite Forest Wedding Venues in Idaho.
First, let’s start off about 30 minutes from downtown Boise at Bogus Basin. A beautiful mountain location for an elopement or traditional wedding. It offers the ski lodge as a reception venue and truly lovely views!
A little further out Sixty Chapel located in Garden Valley Idaho. A little under one hour from downtown Boise this venue is perfect for an outdoor wedding. It’s also a great location for a weekend celebration as you rent the entire property-which includes tiny houses, cabins, and a large house for your guests to stay in. A cute red barn to host cocktail hour stands out against the lush sixty acres of property this venue boasts. Have your ceremony on the lower 38 with stunning views of mountains and a large pond. Then head back up to the great pasture for your reception area all while dancing under the stars. This venue is very new but only takes a handful of weddings each year so book in advance.
Next, let’s head another 2 hours into the heart of Idaho to Stanley. Located in this quaint little mountain village is the Meditation Chapel. A personal favorite as this is where I got married! Inside the chapel, it’s a rustic mountain vibe with animal stained glass. While large picture windows display the 180-degree view of the Sawtooth mountains. Truly breathtaking. You can decide to have your ceremony inside or outside the chapel! Then head on over to Pioneer Park for your reception. This beautiful park is conveniently located right next to the chapel, so no commute needed 🙂
Heading down the road 20 minutes we now arrive at Redfish Lake Lodge. One of the most popular destinations in all of Idaho. Open seasonally this lodge is the best of both worlds-combining mountain views, picturesque lakes, all surrounded by forest. Cabins large and small sprawl out on the privately owned property so this is a perfect location for a weekend gathering! Keep in mind this is a publicly open lodge so it does get very very busy during the summer months. Redfish Lake Lodge offers catering and a large reception tent for weddings so it really is quite stress free in planning a destination wedding in the woods. Book well in advance.
