    Amazing Coordination

    My original venue fell through and I contacted Otsego Resort about 3 months before my wedding date. Amanda was more than willing to help put together our wedding, despite have a few others that weekend! Planning the wedding with Amanda was more like working with a friend. She’s upfront about everything and helps in any way she can. Everything was absolutely perfect!

    Wonderful Experience

    Due to Covid restrictions we had to move our wedding and we’re advised to check out Otsego Resort. All around, it was a great experience. Amanda was our wedding planner and couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. She made sure everything was perfect down to the smallest detail. Additional Covid restrictions caused more changes which added stress, but thanks to the competent and thorough Amanda, she handled those changes so we didn’t have to. For instance, she got us a windowed 3 sided tent for the necessary outdoor dance floor and bartender brought in disco ball and colored lights for added fun. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the grounds, beautiful. It is an older resort and is a rustic Bavarian style. Food was excellent and all staff was very friendly. All our wedding guests enjoyed Otsego Resort accommodations and food too. We would highly recommend Otsego Resort in Gaylord, MI.
