    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!

    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!

    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!!
