he wedding coordinator, Tabitha Henry, and the staff at Fontana we’re amazing during my whole wedding process. She gave me so much peace of mind. The staff set all the chairs up for my ceremony and reception, and had all the food ready to go when we got to the reception. Tabitha was amazing from beginning to end and so so helpful. She is great about answering any questions and replied quickly via email when I had a question. I would recommend Fontana Village Resort to all my family and friends looking for somewhere to have a wedding with amazing views in the mountains!Sent on 01/18/2019

Can Not Wait!
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

The wedding planner at Fontana is incredible to work with. Very nice, professional, quick to respond. We got married the last weekend of October and had about 100+ people staying for the weekend. The food and beverage and catering directors did everything they could to satisfy us.Sent on 04/02/2019
The ceremony site is absolutely gorgeous. It overlooks Fontana lake and the view can not be beat.
Compared to other venues offering the same services in the smoky mountain/ Asheville area, Fontana was by far more affordable. The cabins are older, so is the event hall, but they were exactly what we needed for the weekend.
