Planning your Dream Wedding at Chula Vista Resort

Chula Vista Resort is the premier destination for Weddings in Wisconsin Dells!

You’ve taken the first step and decided to plan your wedding in Wisconsin Dells. Perfect! With its sandstone bluffs and scenic views Wisconsin Dells is a beautiful place to plan you special day, not to mention guest-friendly. Now all that’s left is the hard part, the details.

Here at Chula Vista Resort, we believe you wedding day should be stress-free, filled with love and brimming with memories you will cherish for a lifetime. In order to make that happen our Wedding Coordinator, Jenn Pieper, is available to personalize your wedding and take care of even the tiniest of details. Jenn loves planning Weddings in Wisconsin Dells and is available to ease your wedding workload and provide all the assistant you need to say, “I do.”

Meet Jenn

What is your role as Wedding Coordinator at Chula Vista Resort? 

I work with the couple to create the perfect day at our venue. Starting when the date is booked I help coordinate everything until they leave the property after the big day. I help with venue details, book their menu tasting, and coordinate the timing of how the day will happen. Then when the day arrives I am hands-on to make sure that it all happens smoothly!

What is your favorite venue to plan? 

My favorite venues are the Fairway Grove and the Tent. I am an outdoorsy girl so I love seeing events come to life in these spaces.

What is your favorite party about planning weddings?

I love seeing the event come together. I like helping couples make decisions. I enjoy providing couples with suggestions of what I have seen work really well so that they can apply it to their own event. Weddings can seem so chaotic but I take that as a challenge to make them happen flawlessly. I want to be there for all of my couples to feel as though they have nothing to worry about.

What new venue can prospective couples look forward to this year? 

We have just finished construction on our Chapel on the Green! I cannot wait to start planning ceremonies and events in this space. The way the structure creates the feeling of a building that is not really there is beautiful.

What is your favorite part of a wedding?

The ceremony. The amount of love that you as the couples commit to spending the rest of their lives together just melts my heart. I get to see it every weekend!

How long have you been in the wedding industry? 

This is my first year! I graduated from Iowa State University last May with a bachelor’s degree in Event Management.

What made you decide to become a part of the wedding industry? 

I earned a degree in interior design almost 10 years ago and worked in that industry for 7 years. From that I learned that although I was creative it was the project management and interaction with clients as I helped to create their dream home that I really loved. I was ready for a change so I started to do research on event management and knew right away that I would get more satisfaction out of this industry. 

Where are you from? 

I’m from a tiny town of 200 people in Iowa called Beaman. However, I bounced around Iowa while earning my degrees and working in the interior design industry spending time in Cedar Falls, Waterloo, Waverly, Des Moines, Marshalltown and Ames.

If you want to plan your dream wedding in Wisconsin Dells and need some direction, Jenn Pieper, is the girl you are looking for!
