Emily and the Big Canoe staff were incredible in helping to make our big day a huge success!! Emily was so great at making all of my visions of a Big Canoe wedding become a reality. She is very responsive, very nice, and super accommodating. We had our ceremony at the Big Canoe Chapel, and getting the guests over to the reception at the Clubhouse was very easy with the transportation van we used with Kevin White. I had always dreamed of having my wedding at Big Canoe, and I am so happy that it finally came true. It was perfect and we really did have the best weekend!!

The Big Canoe Chapel and Clubhouse was an absolute stunning backdrop for our daughter and son-in-laws wedding. Despite the rain, the mountain setting and lake view were pristine. The clubhouse was beautifully decorated by Emily and team using all the items that we provided mixed in with the clubhouse setting. A majority of the guests stayed in housing at Big Canoe which made the weekend very special having family and friend together in this beautiful mountain community.Sent on 07/22/2017
Over the course of a year, Emily Coppedge, Banquet and Special Events Coordinator at Big Canoe, did a fantastic job stepping us through the wedding process. In addition, Nona and Glenda Mitchell from the Big Canoe Chapel held several walk throughs at the chapel at our request to discuss the wedding ceremony. Everyone was so accommodating to answer all of our questions and to discuss the different options for the special day. With no hesitation, we recommend Big Canoe as a perfect destination setting for a wedding.
