Love at first sight exists!
Tabatha was very professional and informational from the beginning. We set a date to come tour the venue but had to reschedule but she was very flexible and worked with us. I fell in love with the venue and its location immediately. So many options available for wedding ceremony and reception sites. With everything being customized to suit your needs, I can't wait to get married at Fontana Village Resort.Sent on 08/27/2019

Tabitha Henry is amazing. We were running really late but she was still able to see us and show us around. Beautiful views and perfect setting for a wedding. Catering is done by the Fontana Village Resort and is reasonably priced. Can't wait until we get married there!!Sent on 03/29/2019

Wedding Venue September 2019
We were so lucky to stumble upon Fontana Village Resort for our wedding venue. Tabitha Henry is their wedding coordinator and she is such a delight to work with! We planned our wedding from about 6 hours away and she took the stress of it all away. She is one of the nicest people we met and she helped create the best day for us! Fontana Village is a beautiful resort and we had such a memorable weekend with all of our friends and family in one place. This is what made our wedding weekend so much fun. We had all of our loved ones within walking distance of each other! This was the perfect mountain weekend and all of our friends and family had such a great time. Every bride says "expect at least one thing to go wrong on your wedding day", but Tabitha honestly made the day flawless. The food was so delicious, the views were perfect, and we will cherish our wedding day forever. You will seriously enjoy every second of your wedding if you choose Fontana Village!Sent on 11/23/2019
