SAN MORITZ LODGE & WEDDINGS

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are only permitted to have outdoor wedding ceremonies at this time. Indoor ceremonies and receptions of any kind are not allowed in accordance with current State restrictions.

Also, we have very limited dates available for new weddings in 2021 at this time. Many of our couples scheduled to be married this year have been forced to postpone their happy day. We are reserving available dates in 2021 for their postponements to make sure they are afforded every possible opportunity to move forward with the day of their dreams.

If you are interested in having an outdoor ceremony only for 2020, please contact 909-338-2233.
