Our Event Managers
The role of the Silvertip Events Managers is to provide you with answers to your questions, and aid in organization of the venue leading up to your wedding. Silvertip will set up all items included with the venue; tables, linens, chairs, etc. However, organization and set up of décor, centerpieces, flowers, rentals, cakes, etc. is unique to each couple and therefore we do not provide this service. At Silvertip Resort, we know every couple is different and has a distinctive vision for their big day. We are proud to say that we specialize in tailoring our services to help our guests achieve their dream wedding.
