Ceremony and Reception
SATURDAY, JULY 13, 2019
4:00 - 10:00 PM
Solitude Mountain Resort
12000 Big Cottonwood Canyon Rd, Solitude, UT 84121
The wedding will be held on July 13th, 2019 at Solitude Mountain Resort in Utah. The resort is a 40-45-minute drive from the Salt Lake City airport. You can rent a car (it’s surprisingly cheap in SLC, and there’s free parking at the venue), take a Lyft/Uber/taxi (this will be easier to do on the way out than on the way back), or reserve a spot in a shuttle with Canyon Rentals. You can find additional information on getting to Solitude here. And if you’re interested in carpooling with others, let us know when you’ll be arriving, and we’re happy to facilitate car shares!
All events will take place on-site at Solitude. The ceremony will start at 4:00pm, followed by a cocktail hour, dinner, and an abundance of dancing (GET READY!). The official reception will wrap up at 10:00pm, but we’ll continue with an after party at Solitude’s own Thirsty Squirrel until 12 am.
Note: While we love your collective 40+ (!) children, we will not be able to accommodate them at the wedding. However, if you would like to bring your kids with you to Utah, they are more than welcome to join you at Solitude, and you can consider the following childcare options for the day of the wedding:
Friday 7-10 pm: Welcome Reception
Smart Casual Attire
The reception will take place in the Library Bar & Lobby on the north side of the Inn at Solitude. There will be drinks and light hors d'oeuvres, but we recommend having a bite before you come, as a full dinner will not be served. Come for as much or as little of the reception as you like - we will just be excited to see all of your smiling faces and officially welcome everyone to our wedding weekend!
Sunday 8-11 am: Breakfast
Tracy’s parents will host a light breakfast on Sunday morning at their condo (408 Eagle Springs West). Feel free to stop by anytime between 8 am and 11 am to grab some pastries, orange juice, and coffee/tea, and to make Tracy and Andrew even happier than they’ll already be by giving them the pleasure of your company one last time.
The Wild Flower festival will be happening at Solitude on Sunday. There are different walks that take place between 9 am and 2 pm. For more information visit here http://cottonwoodcanyons.org/wasatch-wildflower-festival/.
If you are interested in doing some exploring on your own in your free time, check out our “Things to Do” tab for suggestions in and around Salt Lake City, Solitude, and Park City.
Solitude has plenty of accommodations; however, we recommend booking sooner than later, as another wedding will be happening at the same location that weekend, so earlier booking will give you maximum flexibility. Solitude has a range of housing options from hotel rooms at the Inn to multi-room condos with kitchens to larger luxury homes. You can check out all the possibilities here. If you stay for at least 2 nights, you will get a 20% discount on your room, as well as 2 complimentary lift passes (to check out the view from 10,000 feet!). If you book for one night, you will get a 10% discount.
To book a hotel room, condo, or inn, please call Solitude at 801-536-5765 and either let them know that you’re with the Dobie-McLellan wedding, or give them the wedding code 62453. Please do call rather than book online, as that will ensure you get the best deal and are also affiliated with the wedding.
Finally, note that Solitude does require a 50% deposit to make a booking, so while we recommend booking earlier, please make sure that you can definitely attend the wedding before doing so.
HIGH ALTITUDE WEDDING
Attending a High Altitude Wedding
Solitude Mountain Resort is at 8,000 feet elevation. We know that many of you will be coming from a much lower altitude, so if you are at all concerned about how your body will respond to the altitude, we can offer two suggestions:
Drink lots of water. If you think you’ve been drinking enough water, drink more! Our doctor friends tell us that the best thing you can do to combat altitude sickness is to drink plenty of water. (Related, when imbibing delicious beverages, please remember that you’re not in Kansas anymore, and those beverages will affect you more than would typically be the case.)
If you have the time/flexibility, you can arrive early and spend your first night in Salt Lake City. We’re at about 4,200 feet elevation, so that can help you get acclimated before proceeding on to 8,000 feet. Let us know if you’re planning to do that, and we’d be happy to recommend places to stay, eat, drink, and frolic in the city!
