Rick and I still do about half of our work in Colorado. When our Colorado brides find out we are based out of Wyoming, their heads fill with visions of ranch weddings, horse drawn carriages, rustic décor and mountain scenery. While all of these are VERY Wyoming, what they don’t know is that Wyoming has some absolutely stunning options for brides who are looking for something high end, luxurious and jaw droppingly gorgeous. When THIS type of bride contacts us for a venue recommendation, Little America is definitely at the top of our list. Little America features beautiful damask linens imported from France, Belgium and Portugal. Beautiful Murano chandeliers and Moscatelli wall sconces adorn their walls and help to add that little bit of sparkle to your wedding décor. Your guests will swoon as they are seated to gorgeous Christofle flatware direct from France and enjoy a meal flawlessy prepared for YOUR wedding by world renowned Executive Chef, Santiago Ramos.
We have a wonderful relationship with Little America and have had many mutual brides. We really enjoy working with Little America’s Sales & Catering Manager, Heather Drick. We wanted to know all about this fantastic venue to be able to share this info with our Ardent Brides. Here are a few questions we asked:
What would you say is the ‘style’ of your venue:
With over 50 years of hospitality experience, Little America thrives on lasting relationships. Our full-service resort hotel delivers the most elegant banquet and event space featuring European-style furnishings. Delectable food selections from our renowned Chef make for an outstanding event and visit. Let us do the work; come and be our guest.
What wonderful options do your offer as far as the wedding meal/food options are concerned:
Santiago Ramos our Executive Chef is backed by an experienced culinary team. Chef is always open to new ideas. He consistently exceeds the client and guest’s expectations. In order to perfect the to-be meal, we offer custom tastings upon request.
What would you say differentiates you from other venues in WY & CO:
Brides will say “you’re the nicest place in town.” Yes, there are other places in town that offer a similar product as we do, however I believe it’s the relationship Little America has with these brides and grooms and families. I hear constantly “we come here all the time” or “we grew up coming here.” It makes me very happy when I can offer such a wonderful product that goes beyond the material and seen items and services. We are so much more to people than a beautiful venue – we offer a sentimental value that cannot be bought elsewhere. We’re the home away from home, the family gathering, the Sunday brunch routine, the experience and we’re the unwinding escape.
What amenities do you offer that make you the perfect place to get married:
Here are a few amenities that may make us more appealing over the competition:
- · Ample Space
- · Elegance
- · Executive 9-hole Golf Course
- · Custom Menus
- · Dedicated Staff (yours truly… hehe)
- · Beautiful Grounds
- · State of Art Audio Visual Equipment
How many ballrooms do you offer your brides:
We have 2 rooms actually considered “Ballrooms:” the Wyoming Ballroom and the Grand Ballroom. The Wyoming Ballroom can break into two mid-sized rooms and the Grand Ballroom can break into three Grand sections. One of those sections can split into half – a lot of variations for the wedding of choice.
As I mentioned, Rick and I have had the pleasure of photographing weddings at Little America many times over the last few seasons. Here are a few of our FAVORITE images from this gorgeous venue:
