Incredible Venue + Service - Perfect Day
Cheekwood is the most breathtaking venue - there is hardly a need to add anything to this stunning place and the photos don't do it justice. The staff was incredible - high communication, flexible and accommodating the whole way. This was especially impactful as we were planning during COVID but they kept us apprised and informed every step of the way. If you are considering it - just do it!Sent on 04/19/2021

Perfect & a dream come true
Our daughter’s wedding was a dream come true.
We were sold on the ceremony being held there the minute we stepped on the grounds. Then meeting with the event staff and them sharing in our excitement and anticipation of our big day, we were made to feel calm and in good hands. Also they dealt seamlessly with our wedding planner to plan and execute the most beautiful day.
A dream wedding day!Sent on 10/27/2019

They Made Our Dreams Come True!
We dreamed of getting married at Cheekwood because the architecture and gardens remind us of Italy. That's where my husband is from and we wanted our wedding to reflect the feeling of history and elegance that you might find in an Italian garden. We worked with Erin from the beginning and we are convinced that she is an angel sent down from Heaven. Not only is she the sweetest, but she really cared about the vision behind our event and cared about helping us make that vision come to life. She was so accommodating and organized throughout the planning process (which was only 2 months!!). We knew we were in good hands with her as we quickly planned our event. We had our ceremony in the Wisteria Arbor and had a small 50 person cocktail reception inside the Loggia. It was everything we dreamed and more. Thank you so much Cheekwood! We are indebted to you guys!!Sent on 05/01/2019
Cheekwood is simply a beautiful place to get married with plenty of options for stunning photos and memories! It's a fantastic venue to get married at.
Such a beautiful place for weddings and well run facilities. The grounds and architecture make for such a variety of backdrops and give bride and grooms so many choices for where to do their wedding and reception. Grew up visiting this place and now it makes it even more fun to create lasting memories here for bride and grooms.
