When you dream of your wedding day, what do you see? A stone Chapel with late afternoon sun beaming through stained glass windows? A lake-side Colonnade with tall Column at the end of a long side walk lined with roses? The perfect, outdoor Amphitheatre over looking the Lake and mountains? Lake Junaluska has what you need to make that dream a reality. We would love the chance to speak with you and help you chose the perfect venue for your wedding. Lake Junaluska is nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains and offers a beautiful 200 acre lake with a spectacular mountainous background. Whether you choose our Chapel set on the lakeside, the Colonnade or any of our other wedding ceremony venues, the picturesque venues are sure to make your fairy-tale dreams come true.
Lake Junaluska, with its picturesque backdrops, also provides a beautiful place for bridal portraits. Arrangements for bridal portraits may be made with the Wedding Coordinator, some with a small fee.
For your convenience, Lake Junaluska would love to reserve rooms for your family and friends to stay with us while in town to celebrate your special day. We also offer packages to local attractions, such as the Biltmore House, for those guests who would like to spend a few days in the area. We offer packages to places such as the Biltmore House, Nantahala Outdoor Center and Cataloochee Ski Area.

We had a choice of several beautiful sights to have the wedding ceremony and reception. We chose the Collanade by the lake. The rose walkway was so beautiful that we did not have to do too much decorating for the wedding! Terri, the event coordinator was so helpful in planning. She even came in on her day off to do"prom patrol" before and during the ceremony. The whole staff rallied and pulled it all together even though it came a downpour of rain 45 minutes before the wedding was to begin. The food was delicious and waitstaff very helpful.Sent on 06/13/2011

We used the Lake Junaluska Conference Center for our rehearsal dinner, wedding and our reception. The Coordinator for the Center, Ms. Cutshaw, was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about both weddings in general and the specifics of each location around the Lake. We ended up using three different buildings, the lodge across the road from the Center, the outdoor hillside site at the Lambuth Inn (which was spectacular overlooking the mountains at sunset), and the small cafe area in the downstairs of the Harrell Center. All three were just right for our purposes and staff did a wonderful job of organizing and preparing each site. Any minor problems were resolved quickly upon being mentioned to staff. At each event there was either the staff on site or a number by which someone couild be summoned by phone at any point.Sent on 10/27/2011
Ms. Cutshaw especially was so helpful and responsive in the planning stage which helped resolve many worries and prevent a few potential big problems. She assisted with the menu for the reception, both in choosing the items and estimating the amounts. We're particularly grateful for her help!

My wedding ceremony was held at The Colonnade at Lake Junaluska in October 2010. (The reception was held elsewhere.) It is a beautiful location right on the lake, and everyone was incredibly helpful. The wedding coordinator, Terri Cutshaw, is amazingly helpful. She answered all of my questions quickly and was fantastic.Sent on 11/16/2010
We just used the place, and had our own vendors set up everything & decorate. I know I did inquire about renting their chairs (which are white in their promotional pictures) only to find out that the chairs they actually have for rent are the gray metal ones. (The white ones belong to an outside vendor.) They never tried to trick me about the chairs, but I would definitely ask specific questions about what you're getting instead of assuming it will be as the pictures show.
Many of our family members stayed there the night before the wedding, and I would not recommend that. Those staying at the Lambuth Inn had a pretty good stay. The staff at the Lambuth Inn was very great and even helped us get some of (Although I was put in a tiny room the size of a closet even though there were two people staying in the room and I paid the same amount as my mom, who was staying by herself, whose room was a normal size.) However, my brother-in-law and his family (with newborn) had a terrible experience with a cabin they rented.
When we went to visit the grounds in April it was not impressive. The lake was drained at the time, and it smelled. Plus, the Colonnade looked a little shabby. However, Terri promised me the lake would be full in October and so we booked it. On the day of our wedding the Colonnade looked great (and there was no smell!) They had replaced the wooden benches at the Colonnade since April and had replaced the fallen railing lining the Rose Walk. Anything that looked shabby in April was pristine in October. (Although there are some water stains at the top of the Colonnade that you don't see in pictures. They're probably all photo-shopped out!)
Overall, I couldn't recommend it more. We had a very small and simple ceremony (25 guests.) We wanted it in a beautiful location that wasn't very expensive which is exactly what we got. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful.
