Lost River Cave and Our Lifelong Memories
Almost a year later, our wedding at Lost River Cave pops into my mind almost daily. The venue is unforgettable - unmatched for the price and for the memories. From day one the staff and planners were available to help with details and organization. We planned the event from across the country and the staff on day of made all of our misses into wins. And, of course, our guests were blown away by the beauty and professionalism of the staff. Thank you, Lost River Cave!Sent on 08/07/2019

Amazing Venue! Don't wait to book!
We had our wedding at Lost River Cave this fall and it was absolutely perfect! We received so so many compliments from the guests on the natural beauty of the venue. About the most unique atmosphere you can find for a reception, that's for sure!
Maegan made it an absolute breeze to book the spot, and was great about getting back to us with any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, her and the rest of the team at Lost River did everything they could to make our day run smoothly! The River Birch Room they have available was also the perfect place for the Bridal party to get ready/hang out and store their items during the ceremony/reception. This venue really has everything you could need.
The only thing we could possibly complain about was date availability, since almost every Saturday in the fall was already booked 18 months out, but that just means you shouldn't wait to get in touch with them!Sent on 10/22/2020

Simply the best venue ever!
The team at Lost River Cave, especially Maegan, were so incredible and helpful to work with (particularly during these crazy times of COVID19)!!Sent on 08/21/2020
I had stumbled across the cave online while looking for a venue and it caught my eye, it was so beautiful and unique. So we planned a tour, my husband and I fell in love with the cave as soon as we saw it. This was the place we wanted to get married, no doubt about it.
From beginning to end Maegan was the absolute best to work with- from giving us a list of vendors in the area she recommended to keeping us up to date on the latest guidelines/guest limit/etc due to COVID. The entire team helped ensure the evening was a fun celebration while still remaining safe. I can't thank them enough for helping to make our dream wedding come to life!!!
Lost River Cave's reply:Thanks so much for allowing us to celebrate with you and for your kind words. We are so happy to hear that you all had your dream wedding (even in the middle of a global pandemic)! We are BIG fans of you and Mike!
