    Seamless and Lovely Experience

    Our wedding at Convict Lake was absolutely perfect and that was made possible by Meghan (wedding coordinator at the resort) and her incredible team. The experience from start to finish was so seamless. They are true professionals at what they do and will make sure all the details are in place every step of the way. You will first speak with Meghan and she'll ask you some questions to provide you with a quote. Once you're booked, you'll have a few meetings with Meghan as the wedding gets closer. She makes sure everything is taken care of and sets you up with a little wedding planner booklet with all the details of your day. She's practically a wedding planner except she doesn't communicate with your vendors. On the day of, her and her team set up all your d茅cor and all you have to do is show up to walk down the aisle and the party begins. Also, the venue -- obviously -- is incredibly stunning. Your guests will be in awe of the natural beauty -- it's magical in there. Seriously can't recommend them highly enough!

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!

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 Jalape帽o 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!
