Throughout the whole planning process Becky & Jaci were so kind, professional, organized and prompt. I know it's their job to help couples plan a wedding, but they go above and beyond and you can tell they truly care about making your day the best experience for you and your guests. We are so grateful for all they did for us!
The property is obviously gorgeous as were all the spaces we used during our weekend. We had a small wedding of 55 guests. We had the ceremony outside at the Grand Staircase which is so beautiful. However, their new Chapel that can be used as a backup location if weather doesn't cooperate looks awesome as well!
We had our cocktail hour outside on the lower terrace of the main lodge which we LOVED. We were able to rent yard games for our guests to play, the bar was set up outside and there was a nice fireplace as well.
Our dinner/reception was held in the Headwaters Dining room in the lower level of the main lodge. What a perfect space this is for a smaller group. Very elegant and intimate feeling. The staff and food were also awesome! We did all of our catering (including dessert and late night food) through Grand View.
Honestly, I feel so lucky we were able to have our wedding here. It was so fun having our friends and family stay for the weekend and everything exceeded our expectations. Even though we had a smaller wedding, we were treated amazingly throughout everything. If you are considering GVL for your wedding - you will be so happy with your decision to work with them!
