McGrath Wedding Septemner 2019 Top of the Rock
Big Cedar Lodge was the perfect location for our destination wedding in September 2019. We are from Plano, Texas and had the most amazing experience with everyone at Big Cedar. Our ceremony was at Top of the Rock – Chapel of the Ozarks, reception at Top of the Rock Wine Bar & Event Room and rehearsal dinner at The Worman House. Erin Schroeter was our amazing wedding planner and go to gal for everything at Big Cedar. She is so knowledgeable about the whole process down to the very last minutes before you walk down the aisle. She also provided us with a vendor list that helped us choose an awesome photographer, cake baker and DJ. When it came to room reservations they have a whole team that is dedicated to rooms and reservations. Everyone was so nice to talk to and helped with deciding on how many rooms to block etc. Our wedding went off without a hitch. I would hands down recommend Big Cedar Lodge. The views and scenery are just amazing but the best part is also the people that help you make your day so perfect.Sent on 10/28/2019

Can you believe we started planning our elopement the Tuesday before our Wedding? Courtney and Julia at Big Cedar Lodge Events helped plan my "Friday at 5" wedding and it would not have been as wonderful without them. It truly was stress free. Flowers were beautiful. Cake was delicious. Food was wonderful, too! Views were amazing. My husband and I were able to enjoy our special day without worry. Thank you, Big Cedar!Sent on 05/23/2017

I recently got married on 5/6/17 next to the waterfall at Big Cedar Lodge. I chose to do one of their elopement packages because we decided on just a small wedding with only 11 guests. The elopement package included 5-7 different spots on the property to choose from, bouquet of half dozen roses for me and a boutinneire for my hubs, in the color we chose, bottle of champagne, cake and dinner voucher for the two of us.Sent on 05/10/2017
Ok now that those details are out of the way, I worked closely with Courtney and Julia and could not have been more pleased!! They were so responsive and answered all of my questions promptly, sometimes even more than once...sorry Courtney! The officiant called me about a week prior to the wedding and we discussed what we wanted for our ceremony and then he met us at the door the day of, so it was truly stress free!
The property is absolutely GORGEOUS!! I actually had a friend's husband ask if we got married in Ireland when he saw a picture I posted on FB overlooking the lake. I can't wait to get my pictures back because there are so many good spots to get an amazing picture at. Even though there were more than one wedding going on the same day as mine, I never encountered them personally, just from a distance, and it still truly feels like it's your special day and you're the only one there, that's how vast the property is and how many wedding location choices you have. We did our reception dinner Osage restaurant at Top of the Rock and it was stunning! The food was amazing, the service was impeccable, the ambience, the views...oh my gosh I cannot say enough. I highly recommend Big Cedar Lodge to anyone, and wouldn't think twice about doing it all over again!!
