Tabora Wedding - October 11th, 2019
Meghan and her team at Convict Lake Weddings were perfect. They were so accommodating to us and always willing to do whatever it took to make our day special. Not only were they visible at all times, but they were everywhere lending a helping hand from directing guests to serving breakfast the next day. They made everything feel so easy and laid back that it was almost TOO good to be true. We got so many compliments on not only the location, but the staff and amenities as well. We couldn't have done it without them and could not imagine having our wedding at any other place. They even managed to sneak a surprise in featuring the parents of the bride and groom that everyone went crazy for! It was truly perfect.Sent on 11/05/2019

Phenomenal wedding at Convict Lake
We absolutely loved Convict Lake Resort! Our ceremony was held at Shale Beach and our reception at the tent. After the reception, we headed into the bar at Convict Lake Resort for late night pizza and drinks. Meghan, Mike and their staff ensured that we had a flawless day. Meghan and her team were amazing to work with and set up the tent beautifully. They completely understood our vision and handled all the last-minute items dropped off during the day. We saw the reception tent for the first time after the ceremony; it was all magnificent, her team did not miss a thing. The team was attentive to every guest’s needs and we were well taken care of by Mike and Meghan directly. Our wedding exceeded our expectations.Sent on 01/01/2020
We LOVE working with the team at Convict Lake Resort, and are so grateful to have planned many events at this beautiful property. From the breathtaking lakeside ceremony locations, to the spectacular views of the mountains/sunsets through their clear tent structure, this property is an all around great venue for your special day! Not to mention they have cabins on-site to house your guests, and fun activities (i.e. horseback riding, fishing/boating, hiking, etc.), to keep your guests happy all weekend long. We look forward to working on many more great events together in the future. From, the Green Fox Events Team!
What a beautiful location for a wedding! With a top-notch staff, they'll treat you to a gorgeous, private mountain wedding.
Convict Lake Resort is a world class wedding destination of the finest in it's class. The service team is excellent and well trained, very professional they almost always have a sommelier on staff. The wedding planning team of Mike and Meghan are always on point. Weddings at this location are always executed flawlessly in time. The magic is in the details they are very meticulous and organized. Convict Lake is so smooth your guests will be impressed by the flow! The food is delicious, you could argue it the finest in all the Sierra! You can always taste the craftsmanship. From the homemade salad dressings the vinaigrette is off the hook! There is a New York that is roasted Prime Rib style that reinvents the game! My personal favorite is the Mahi Mahi with Jalapeño Cilantro. Chef Oscar and this crew are very talented. Yea the service and view combined with the value make this place all time. The view from the ceremony sites speaks for itself. Take the hike around the lake and let the mountains and the majesty speak to you. You will thank me! (about 45 minutes easy terrain and no elevation gain. Bring water, wear sunscreen, appropriate footwear) I recommend Convict Lake on every level. This place is fantastic!
