Weddings At Seneca Lake Resorts

Seneca Lake Resorts has become the go-to destination for a beautiful waterfront wedding in the Finger Lakes. Each year Seneca Lake Resorts hosts more weddings than the year before at our beautiful event venue, The Vista.

Located in the heart of The Finger Lakes, and affixed with rustic, yet elegant, charm, The Vista is the versatile and picturesque event space you’ve been looking for. The Vista sits atop a lush green hill overlooking the beauty of Seneca Lake, where the calm deep blue waters and rolling hills of wine country give way to the breathtaking sunsets above, that will canvas your wedding in a golden ray, giving your photos that picture perfect look. Composed of four distinct setup locations, the vista can fit to any wedding plan.

The Vista is an incredibly versatile event space. Whether you’re going for rustic, modern, classic, or something completely unique, The Vista can pull it off. At twenty-five-hundred square feet, The Vista can easily accommodate a large wedding of over one hundred. It comes complete with a food prep space, rustic wood bar, fireplaces, bathrooms, thirteen farmhouse tables and one hundred and fifty wooden folding chairs.

The Vista lawn is perfect for accommodating a large wedding and has frequently accommodated weddings of over one-hundred people, while effortlessly allowing spacious placement of chairs and leaving enough room for comfortable aisle and alter area. A lawn ceremony allows guests to enjoy the fresh air and take in that refreshing breeze emanating from the waters below as they are situated comfortably beneath the shade of foliage.

Our 40ft by 80ft tent has acted as a dance floor, dining hall, and ceremony spot. Spacious and versatile, it is an ideal spot for a large sized wedding. It is complete with two power pedestals offering electricity to your DJ, band, or caterer, as well as string lights surrounding the tent to lighten up the night after the sun goes down. Our tent is the perfect open-air setting with the added comfort of a roof.

But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to the reviews of our many happy couples who chose The Vista for their wedding.

“My husband and I got married at The Vista this past September. This venue gave us the opportunity to design our unique wedding experience with ample spacing using the building, tent, and patio areas. We had a great experience working with the Event Coordinator, while coordinating details for our big day. The bar staff were friendly and accommodating. We had 150 guests attend our wedding and felt there was plenty of space, bathrooms and parking. There are lots of options for different weather you may experience, the garage door windows at this venue can be open or closed. They also have side walls which can be added around the tent, we chose to use these to keep our guests warm in late September. The unobstructed view of the lake is like no other, but, what really sold us was the family-like atmosphere we felt while visiting the venue for the first time. The kids loved the playground below and caught a movie on the outdoor screen. We highly recommend The Vista for both the quality of the location and the kindness the staff provided us with.”

“When deciding on a wedding venue we were looking for a perfect mix of having a weekend, lake getaway with our closest family and friends with the weekend culminating in our wedding on Sunday. Seneca Lake Resorts made this dream a reality. We were able to reserve cabins next to one another and nearby The Vista. We had rented a total of 10 cabins for friends and family that weekend. Our families had games set up, a cookout, and rented boats from the marina. A weekend full of fun and memories for everyone all thanks to the amenities of Seneca Lake Resorts. Our guests are already looking forward to a reunion. The Vista setup allowed us to host the ceremony, reception, and cocktail hour and dancing all in one location with it’s flexible lawn, pavilion and white tent set up all side by side. We would highly recommend The Vista at Seneca Lake Resorts to anyone who is looking to have an outdoor wedding overlooking Seneca Lake. Our wedding there could not have been more perfect.”


“The Vista is absolutely beautiful. Right on the edge of the lake. The feel is so warm, greater than we could have ever imagined. We got to camp right there and then I walked out of our cabin to the venue to get married. I had a lot of my family stay there too, so it’s like a one stop shop for everything that you need.”


“I fell in love with it. I fell in love with the water, I fell in love with the view, the openness of it. The greatest part of the venue is the idea of going to the wedding and walking back to your cabin. I would one hundred percent recommend it. It is a great, great spot.”


I was so excited to see what we could do to the space, and I was beyond happy with the outcome. You can’t beat the views at The Vista at Seneca Lake Resorts. One thing that really stuck out to me was the cabins being so close to the ceremony and reception area. It was very convenient for the makeup artists and guests attending the wedding. Between the tent and the pavilion there are so many different layouts and floor plans you can customize to create the perfect wedding day!”
