Dream Come True
I don't know if there is enough room here to let me talk about how great this venue and location is. First off, Meghan is a rock star. She knows what's going on and making sure everything is going as planned. We brought her some bins with things we wanted spread around the tent and she killed it. Not only did she set them up, but she tore them down and set them aside for us to pick up the next day. She treats you as if it was her own wedding going on. You are not just another wedding to her. Her communication is great, her organization and staff is great, and it completely takes the stress away from your wedding day to where you can just enjoy it. Next I want to thank Mike. I don't think he stopped smiling when we were around him. Mike bent over backwards to get the rehearsal dinner and breakfast set up to our liking and provided non stop service all night. every time I saw him he was always asking how everything is going and if there is anything we needed to let him know. The resort is clean and the remodeled cabins are 5 star. Thank you Mike and Meghan for making this day special and memorable. You killed it.Sent on 09/14/2019

Best day ever
We had our wedding at Convict Lake last weekend and it was the most perfect couple of days. It was so much better than we could have ever imagined. Not only is it absolutely beautiful, but Mike and Meghan are just incredible. They are the just kindest people and worked so hard to make sure everything leading up to and our actual wedding day was perfect. The entire process was so easy and so fun. The cabins are amazing, the food at the restaurant is delish, the general store has everything you need, and the location is just the happiest place on earth. We can't wait to go back and we are beyond happy we picked Convict Lake as our wedding venue. Thank you, Mike and Meghan!!! We love you!Sent on 09/15/2019

The Most MAJESTIC Wedding Venue a Bride could ask for
Convict Lake is without a doubt one of the most stunning venues of all time. My entire wedding party and guests that attended were in complete awe! Not only is the venue a work of art but so is the incredible Meghan Gallagher, the wedding coordinator. Meghan was the most crucial person on my wedding day and all the months leading up to it. She is truly one of a kind, she always wrote back to my emails answering all my questions, no matter how small or silly they seemed (first wedding, who knows what to do!). My fiance (now husband ;)) and I are vegans and wanted a vegetarian wedding. Convict lake had never had a vegetarian wedding and Meghan made sure our wishes were met! She took it upon herself to coordinate with the chef what wonderful dishes he could create and serve, and my gosh did people rave about the food!! Not only was she able to secure a vegetarian array of food but secured two separate vegan dishes the chef made just for us. That shows just how much she pays attention to the couple, really wants the best you and your hearts desires. My wedding went off without a hitch, I've heard of brides crying and so overwhelmed on their wedding day, which no one should ever have to go through, and mine was beyond perfect in every way. The only tears I had were of joy and Meghan was instrumental in that. She has the most beautiful, bright energy and light around her and that will translate to your wedding. If you want the apex of your story to be majestic Meghan and Convict lake should be your first choice. Whoever reads this, I hope you have a beautiful, long lasting love and a majestic wedding of your dreams.Sent on 09/04/2019
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!
