The Best Wedding Venues In Idaho Can Be Found In One Location

Finding the ideal wedding venue can seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t need to be. Tamarack Resort, the nation’s newest all-season destination resort, is the perfect place to celebrate one of the most important days in a person’s life. Nestled in Idaho’s Central Mountains, Tamarack offers multiple venues of unmatched beauty, ideal for joining two lives in holy matrimony — stunning mountain landscapes, immaculately maintained grounds, available world-class catering, and bountiful lodging options. If a destination wedding is what you have in mind, Tamarack has everything you could want and more.

As an all-season resort, Tamarack is Idaho’s premier location for weddings no matter the time of year. From outdoor ceremonies to indoor banquets and any combination thereof, we have what you need at this haven of natural beauty.

The Award-Winning Arling Center — A Collection Of The Best Wedding Venues Idaho Has To Offer

Named the most popular wedding venue in Idaho by Cosmopolitan, Tamarack has hosted hundreds of ceremonies. But to say it is simply a wedding venue doesn’t do Tamarack justice. Marked by pristine landscaping, this mountain escape is a collection of venues that offer you plenty of choices for weddings, big and small.

The Arling Center was awarded the coveted Couples’ Choice award from WeddingWire in 2019 and 2020, and it’s no wonder why. Modeled after the quaint town of Arling, Idaho, the Arling Center is a grouping of buildings and outdoor venue spaces that epitomize romance.

Couples who come here to make a commitment for forever and guests who witness the festivities both agree that Tamarack is an unmatched location to make your vows. And with the Boise airport less than two hours away, couples from far and wide are making the trek to Tamarack to tie the knot.

Embrace Idaho’s Scenery With An Outdoor Wedding

Tamarack Resort is a place like no other. Home to some of the best outdoor recreation in the state, this resort is also a location of unmatched beauty. The views from the property take wedding guests by surprise. Surrounded by green forests, mountain meadows, and backdropped with a brilliant blue sky, Tamarack is the definition of picturesque. Add the stunning Lake Cascade into the mix, and it’s no wonder so many people choose an outdoor wedding here. The hard part is deciding between the North Lawn and the Plaza.

The North Lawn

Whether sharing your vows or celebrating post-ceremony, The North Lawn is a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family. With room for up to 200 people, The North Lawn is the perfect spot to sip cocktails and take in the brilliant stars on warm summer nights.

The Plaza

Designed as an outdoor reception area, The Plaza is also a great place to tie the knot. Enough room for 200 guests make this space ideal for dining and dancing the night away. With plenty of room for a DJ or a live band, The Plaza can also accommodate special activities like photo booths.

Plenty Of Space For Indoor Festivities

Three buildings surround The Plaza of the Arling Center, all inspired by turn-of-the-century Idaho architecture — The Grange, The Chapel, and The School House. Each building offers unique elements making Tamarack Idaho’s preferred location for weddings from small to large.

The Grange

The largest of the buildings, The Grange, is 2,469 square feet of luxurious entertainment space. The main ballroom’s 30-foot ceilings create an open and airy environment and can accommodate up to 200 guests.


For those looking for a more traditional wedding experience, The Chapel does not disappoint. Bright windows make for plenty of natural light and beautiful views. Able to accommodate 140 guests, The Chapel is a stunning non-denominational venue.

The School House

Every wedding needs a staging area, a bride’s room, and waiting areas for bridal parties — the School House is just the place. Here, you can take time to center, get ready, and cover any last-minute wedding details.

The brilliant white of both The School House and The Chapel offers a stunning contrast with the brilliant greens of the forest and blue skies.

Small and Intimate Weddings At Tamarack

While it is not part of the Arling Center, The Lodge at Osprey Meadows is an additional wedding venue option at Tamarack. Perfect for 25 guests or less, this location offers a breathtaking view of the lake and private reception space indoors.

Catering Options Abound At Tamarack

From start to finish, Tamarack is an unbelievable place for weddings. This is especially true of the catering options. From hors d’oeuvres to full dinners and champagne to a full bar, the catering crew here is ready to make your wedding day one to remember.

Toast Your Wedding With Your Drink Of Choice

While champagne is undoubtedly the most common beverage for wedding toasts, you can have whatever you want — to help bring life to your wedding day, we offer a wide range of drink options. We can do a hosted or no-hosted bar with wine and beer only, or we can set you up with a full service bar — whatever is needed to make your wedding day special.
