On the 30th of August 2013, my fiance and I were married here.
we booked the matterhorn restaurant during the middle of high season about 6 months in advance. we were introduced to Nicola and later Carrie. Nicola was our primary contact and made a very large, very complex event incredibly simple for us. at all times, she was clear, concise and upfront about what the powderhorn could and could not do, and why that was.
she worked with us to make our plans a reality, when she found a better way of doing something she told us, when she could save us a bit of coin or streamline things a bit she told us.
this led to the event going perfectly on the day, before and during the event we also dealt with Carrie, who was just as good to work with as Nicola. Carrie put out several small fires for us over the course of the evening while Nicola was busy supervising her staff - and what excellent staff they were!
overall, excellent food, beautiful venue and great people.
we are extremely happy that the powderhorn helped us start our married life with such a hiss and a roar!
