Spotlight On: Fort Douglas | Wednesday Wisdom


Today, I would like to share one of the most interesting, historical, and beautiful venues in Salt Lake City - Fort Douglas!  Located at the University of Utah, this venue boasts a movie theater, outdoor spaces, and 5 historical buildings - all available for your event whether it be large or small!  Mary and Holly were lucky enough to tour all of these beautiful spaces and were blown away by the different options available and how amazing each and every space is!!!  One of my favorite things is if you'd like to have a chapel wedding , but don't want the reception venue too far away, their Post Chapel is quaint and pretty for any ceremony and then you can head over to the Commander's House or The Officer's House for an intimate and beautiful reception!  Really, the possibilities are endless, but any one of them you choose are sure to please!  I also love the hidden and lush Chapel Glen than sits in a little gully on campus.  Surrounded by trees and greenery, it provides a more private and spectacular outdoor setting, just steps away from Officer's Circle.  Not to mention, the University Guest House is adjacent to all of these buildings and perfect to house your out-of-town guests or for a place for you and your ladies to get ready before the wedding!  Take a look! The bandstand, picnic grounds, and entrance to Chapel Glen - all gorgeous outdoor spaces!!! The picturesque Commander's House, I love the ceilings and entry.  Such a beautiful reception venue! The stunning Officer's Club.  I love all of the original stone walls in this building.  So different and beautiful! The University Guest House and the Pierre Lossande House.  I love the architectural details of the Lossande porch! The Post Chapel is my favorite building!  I love the colors and details of the exterior and the quaint almost 'east-coast' chapel feel of the interior!  So beautiful! As you can see, Fort Douglas is brimming with beauty and gorgeous options.  If you are still looking for your venue, this is definitely one to check out!  Happy planning everyone!
