Romance, Weddings, Dreams Do Come True at Heather Mountain Lodge

Alexis Ampudia is Heather Mountain Lodge's Operations Manager & Event Director, and most passionate romantic. “I am so excited to be a part of the team at Heather Mountain Lodge because of the opportunity to work in event and wedding planning.”

Alexis came to Golden just over 8 years ago from Mexico City. Drawn to the mountains, she fell in love with the area while studying in College of the Rockies Adventure Tourism Program. It didn't hurt that she met her future husband in the same program.

“We just knew that Golden was right for us. We bought land together a bit south of town and were married in our backyard last summer.”

When asked about why weddings at Heather Mountain Lodge are special, Alexis shares: “The private setting really makes Heather Mountain Lodge different. You can get married in a beautiful, remote (yet accessible) location, with your closest family and friends on site for the entire weekend. It's just like having the party in your own backyard but you don't have to clean up or cook!”

Speaking about cooking... “The restaurant at the Lodge is amazing. The menu options are very “Canadian” with lots of unique and local features. It's not something you'd see on a typical restaurant or banquet menu.”

Say “Hi” to Alexis the next time you're at Heather Mountain Lodge and she'll be sure to share a few of the lodge secrets with you.
