    Without a doubt, the best possible wedding venue!!!

    I wish I could give a million stars to Adventures on the Gorge (AOTG)! AOTG and the staff are beyond incredible!! Jessica, the wedding venue coordinator, is amazing to work with. The venue is gorgeous, but Jessica is the real reason why booking a wedding here is the smartest move you could possibly make! She and the entire staff are so kind and helpful! Even though she is the venue coordinator, I was able to call her and ask her advice about anything wedding related during our 1.5 year planning process because she has planned so many weddings, she just knows what works and what doesn't. Even though she's so busy, she always finds a way to make time to help. She was indispensable during our planning process & wedding weekend, and we could not have planned the wedding of our dreams without her. We truly trusted Jessica, which made the actual wedding weekend way more fun and stress-free for us than it normally is. The first time we visited AOTG, Jessica gave us a grand tour of the entire property. She showed us all the possible locations we could have various wedding events, she even showed us the inside of some unrented cabins and vacation homes so we could decide where we and our family/friends should stay. She gave this tour to us when various family could join FOUR different times, how above and beyond is that?! We also wanted to have a whole weekend of events for our wedding to spend a lot of quality time with our guests and also be around nature because we are very outdoorsy. However, not all our guests are outdoorsy, and we found that AOTG was the perfect balance between beautiful scenery/nature and resort/luxury amenities. The "cabins" aren't your stereotypical cabins, the are luxury cabins and worth every penny! Having us and guests stay on the resort allowed us to spend even more quality time with guests because it was so easy for guests to come over to our cabin and gather around the firepit and hot tub. Everyone could walk or take the shuttle to all the wedding events, so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The shuttle drive, Dee, is so kind and incredible. She took care of everyone! Plus, AOTG made it so easy for guests to book various adventures. We had a rafting trip for guests, which is offered at discounted price for wedding groups, and it was such a hit! Even some friends and family that normally are NOT adventurous decided to go and everyone had the best time. Everything at AOTG exceeded my expectations. All the staff are so kind and everyone truly wants you to have an amazing wedding. The thing that stands out about AOTG and Jessica, is that they really take care of absolutely everything during your wedding, so you can actually enjoy it! You can be as involved in the details as you choose. We were very involved, and Jessica made sure to understand what we wanted and made it happen. The food is also amazing - blown away by how good the hors d'oeuvres and buffet food was. Bartenders and drinks were awesome as well. We had Meet & Greet at Rendezvous Pavilion, which is such a cool and fun space - we didn't need any decorations. The ceremony was on the deck behind Smokey's and is just gorgeous - surrounded by trees but on a nice decking (best of both worlds). The reception was around the pool, which is gorgeous at night and the view behind the upper deck is beautiful. Everything that you get at AOTG for your wedding and having Jessica as the coordinator makes the price extremely reasonable!! Book this place if you can!!!!

    Friday Wedding

    Was by far the party of the year for all of our guests! Jessica and Liz helped out tremendously and really made the day perfect. Only sad part was I thought we were going to have a big rubber duck as our alcohol holder and instead it was a pretty cool boat

    Breathtaking Experience

    We couldn't have picked a better wedding venue during a pandemic. Jessica, from AOTG was absolutely amazing to work with while going in blind. We had to move our wedding from South Florida to West Virginia and plan everything in less than 2 months. We were able to gather 65 of our closest friends and family in a safe location where everyone felt comfortable during COVID to celebrate our big day. We were able to make a whole weekend out of it and Jessica played a huge roll in making sure everything was perfect. We could not have done it without her. I now could never picture my wedding anywhere else but at Adventures on the Gorge. Thank you Jessica and AOTG for making out wedding weekend the most amazing time for all of us.

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.
