Stunning, magical, and the best experience we could have hoped for
Our Cedar Lakes wedding was an absolute dream come true. From the moment we saw the website and visited the property, we fell in love. And it only got better from there.Sent on 06/21/2019
We had a 250 person fusion Indian-American wedding at the beginning of May, and Cedar Lakes couldn't have been a more perfect venue. Everyone at our wedding raved about both the location and the service from start to finish. And for us, we we were treated like royalty.
While many venues significantly limit your options, Cedar Lakes is a blank canvas on which all of your wedding dreams can play out. The amazing women who run Cedar Lakes embrace each couple's unique expressions, and they have the open-mindedness and the dedication to make it happen.
The various spaces on their extensive property can host just about any type or size of event. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces are stunning and, when decorated for a wedding, will take your breath away. While you'll really get the most out of Cedar Lakes if the weather is nice, we can attest that the property shines in just about any conditions.
The fact that we could have all wedding events (Friday-Sunday) on one property made everything so much simpler, and allowed us to maximize the time with our guests. Also, the many options for outdoor activities turned the normal "what do I do with myself?" time before a wedding into one of the highlights of the weekend. And since Cedar Lakes doesn't have a curfew, you can truly make the most of your time with your guests.
The chic-rustic cabins throughout the property offer various options and price levels for guests. So many people loved staying in the cabins and lodging with larger groups instead of separate hotel rooms. Even if all of your guests don't stay on site, there are several convenient lodging options nearby.
Growing up in the shadows of New York City, we wanted to give our New York guests a mini getaway, and also give our out-of-town (and out-of-country) guests a place worth traveling to. Cedar Lakes checked both boxes and more. It is also a reasonable drive from nearby airports (Newark is recommended to avoid NYC traffic).
We could go on for many more paragraphs, but we'll sum it up here: the staff and the venue are not just a breath of fresh air from your normal wedding experience, but are truly unique and exceptional. Everything they offer is of superb quality and their attention to detail is evident in everything they do.
Since Cedar Lakes reserves the entire property for only one wedding party at a time, the price point reflects what's needed to support that. But if your budget can accommodate it, whether you do the minimum options or the all-out options, you truly get what you pay for and more. You won't regret picking Cedar Lakes for your most special day.

If you're reading this, you're probably where I was last summer - recently engaged (or to be honest, about to be engaged), looking for a unique wedding venue, and trying to decide if Cedar Lakes is really as special as it looks online and worth the cost. I can save you some time, and share that CLE is even more exceptional that it seems, and you will never, ever regret choosing to have your wedding there (if it is within your budget).Sent on 09/23/2018
We had loved ones coming from all over the world , and knew we wanted a venue where we could all be together for as much time as possible with seamless logistics, without compromising on exceptional service and food. Cedar Lakes exceeded every single expectation we had and made our wedding the absolute best weekend ever. And best of all, they really made the weekend personalized for us - they were super supportive of our personal touches and came up with great ideas based on what we were hoping to achieve.
Absolutely everything the team did ahead of and during the weekend resulted in our wedding weekend being even more perfect than we could ever have imagined. We also received a ton of messages, emails and phone calls from friends and family telling us how blown away they were. The venue, the staff, the food, all the events.. we keep getting nonstop compliments on it all!
In short, if having all of your friends and family in one beautiful location for an entire magical weekend is what you're looking for, then this is the place for you - just make sure to book ASAP.
I hope this is helpful in your planning process - good luck!!!

From the moment we chose Cedar Lakes as our wedding venue we knew it was going to be a dream come true. From the minute we explored the grounds and met the wonderful team, we knew we'd found our wedding venue. At Cedar Lakes, you feel like you've found your own paradise. You are surrounded by family, friends, nature, and it's own ecosystem (despite weather apps saying rain, there was no rain in site on our day). Their attention to detail was perfect. The cabins gave everyone a beautiful place to call home for a weekend. We loved that we were able to give our guests a vacation of their own, from kayaking to jumping off the blob everyone was having so much fun. Also, you cannot beat the views. Getting married on the hilltop was so breathtaking; having a backdrop of nothing but nature and having birds chirping during your vows is something we will cherish forever. Lets talk about the reception…the barn came alive at night. All of the vendors that Cedar Lakes works with are all artists of their own and really showcase how much they care and love giving you the best day that you can. (After party in the tree house was the best “middle school” dance party that you never knew you wanted.) What makes it all worth it is having everyone together in one place for the weekend. As life gets crazier, there are fewer and fewer times when this happens, and Cedar Lakes makes this happen. And let's not forget the food. The amount of compliments we received about the food, weeks after the wedding was amazing. The food was phenomenal. We wanted more!!! We were so busy talking to everyone we never even got to have the homemade smores during our rehearsal dinner, but that's how it goes. Cedar Lakes has really established something special in Port Jervis. We hope to come back soon whether its for a dinner or maybe even arrange a family reunion. Thank you a million times again.
