Adventures on the Gorge was the Perfect place for our wedding. My husband and I both knew the day we visited the venue for a tour that it was where we wanted to get married. Our Event Coordinator, Jessica, was a joy to work with and helped to make the big day, and the days leading up to it, stress free. All of our guests complimented on the breathtaking beauty of the setting and many of them sincerely said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. The food which was served buffet style, was Fantastic and also recieved countless praise from our guests! Thanks to Jessica who hand delivered us plates, my husband and I both were able to eat a full meal despite the excitement and many congratulations. AOTG also provided us with a list of recommended florists and bakeries that we chose from and were very happy with. After the wedding, my husband and I stayed in one of the nearby cabins for the night before taking off on our honeymoon the next day, flying out of the Charleston WV airport. All in all we can't wait to go back and revisit the magic of our special day!

I recently had my wedding at Adventures on the Gorge and it was the most magical day of my life! Jessica and her staff took care of every detail to make sure my day was stress free. The food was so amazing. The staff was so polite, professional and friendly. The views of the gorge are absolutely breath taking!

I attended a wonderful weekend wedding celebration at Adventures on the Gorge in West Virginia over Labor Day weekend... The lodging, food and wedding venue was first rate. The staff didn’t let a little rain spoil the fun and had umbrellas and tents ready to move the festivities under cover. Since the wedding theme was “Let the Adventure begin” AOTG was an ideal choice. Family and friends were able to raft, zip line, hike and enjoy the hot tubs in addition to attending the wedding Saturday night. Thanks to AOTG for making sure the weekend was wonderful.
Just finished up a wedding this past weekend at this venue and any wedding would benefit from the scenery, the food, and the staff. Perfect place to have a wedding.
One of my favorite wedding venues! Beautiful views and knowledgable staff!
