Callway Resorts & Gardens can host wedding ceremonies, receptions, welcome parties, and Sunday brunches for a full wedding weekend. They can also host bridal luncheons and showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. They have their own on-site audio visual company to help with sound systems and other audio equipment. Tables, chairs, and a dance floor are provided, as well as items such as barware, flatware, linens, china, and glassware. Outside vendors are allowed, but they must be insured. For convenience, guests can park on site, with a valet and shuttle service. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
The Callaway Catering Team strives to absolutely delight you and your guests throughout your wedding. While they are able to accommodate traditional wedding menus, they can also work with you to incorporate more sentimental pieces, such as the snack you had at the movies on your first date or a themed meal designed around the proposal. Complimentary tastings are provided before the wedding. Callaway’s wedding event menus include samples for cocktail receptions, plated dinners, buffets, desserts, hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and brunch, and serving styles such as buffet, plated, or stations. While the Callaway Catering Team can create a wedding cake of your own design, they also allow couples to choose their own wedding cake or dessert from an outside licensed vendor. Bar services for a cash bar, open bar, or limited bar are also available, and include bartenders. This venue’s liquor license allows a selection of house beer, wine, and liquor, as well as specialty beer, liquor, and wine. They can even provide a champagne toast in celebration of the newlyweds.

We had the wedding or our dreams at Callaway on 3/18/2017! It was a small intimate wedding that started at Ida Mason Chapel, which was absolutely beautiful.. words cannot describe this little chapel. Then we had the outdoor reception in the Ironwood Courtyard at the Lodge and Spa, beautiful outdoor venue, with huge fireplace! There were a variety of rooms for guests to stay in, from budget in the Mountain View inn ( pet friendly btw) to the Lodge and Spa rooms which were gorgeous! We stayed there for your wedding night, and Leslie Brown, the wedding consultant , upgraded us to aSent on 04/03/2017
exquisite suite at no extra charge! Since most of the guests were family , the stayed in the Southern Pines cottages, which are walking distance to the reception area. These were very nice, slept 8 and very affordable. We were disappointed that it was raining the morning of our wedding, as we were afraid that we were going to have to move the reception inside, but Leslie watched the weather...and waited. and waited.. and finally it blew over, and the set-up began around 3pm.. she know how much we wanted it outside.!
You cannot go wrong booking here .. it is just a beautiful setting and very affordable! The service is amazing.. The food was delicious.. since half of the guests were vegetarians, Leslie let us choose different food groups to be served. The price below was including the lodging, and we chose the Sycamore Package...You can spend a lot less and still have a beautiful wedding!
