    You need to use honey creek!

    We used Honey Creek Resort and worked with Delaney to host our Rehearsal Dinner for wedding party plus guests staying at the resort for the weekend. Delaney was quick to respond, took care of anything we needed immediately, and was extremely professional throughout the whole process! Delaney is incredible and if you're planning a wedding at the resort or nearby, you need to use Honey Creek and Delaney!

Honey Creek is on a beautiful location and their inside/outside complex adds to the elegance. They have an experienced and helpful staff who, the last time we were there, were riding herd on at least two weddings simultaneously. Most notably, they were able to supply a back up sound system with a few minutes' notice when the first one stopped working as guests began arriving. We are looking forward to working with them again!
