Breathtaking Mountain Venue & Amazing Wedding Coordination Team
This venue and the staff were absolutely the perfect fit for Chase and I. Our entire wedding experience was stress-free and amazing. From our initial conversations with the staff and venue tour, all the way to our wedding day, Sugar Hollow Retreat took care of us. The venue property is incredibly beautiful, with all of the breathtaking views at the ceremony sites, and the on-site lodging for guests, which is warm and inviting. Yet the team was part of what sealed the deal for us. The inn keeper and event coordinator are the best. The event coordinator made herself available to us for full-service wedding planning throughout our entire engagement and also coordinated on-site on our wedding day. We received awesome guidance and excellent vendor recommendations. For all of their time and dedication, the price is extremely reasonable for this venue and the team that comes with it. Our fall wedding in the mountains was nothing short of magical - I would highly recommend Sugar Hollow Retreat!!!

The perfect day
I was a realistic bride, I knew the day wouldn’t go exactly as planned and that there would be hiccups but Kayleigh didn’t let me know of a single one of them. I had an honestly perfect day.Sent on 01/09/2020
