The most unique and beautiful venue, with the BEST team!

Sugar Hollow Retreat will forever hold a special place in my heart. This venue has absolutely everything you could want and need to create the most magical weekend for you, your spouse, and your closest family and friends. I will always be thankful I found Sugar Hollow Retreat and thankful for the staff that went ABOVE and BEYOND to make our weekend absolutely perfect and everything we dreamed of.

Here are a just a few highlights:

-The most romantic setting saying our vows in front of picturesque mountain views. Our pictures (shout out Mandy Rhoden Photography) are STUNNING.

-After our ceremony, my husband and I were given a private dinner on the Overlook Deck so we could have 20 - 30 minutes to be alone together right after becoming husband and wife (this was very important to me).

-A private, remote location, and a whole weekend to spend with our closest family and friends. Our guests had SO much fun staying in the cabins, hiking the trails, and enjoying nature. Every single one of our guests raved about how unique our wedding was and about how much fun they had.

-The newly built Overmountain Hall for the reception is a showstopper!! The layout, design, bridal suite, landscape, mountain views.....I can't even describe how perfect it all came together.

I could go on and on about the venue, but I can't run out of characters before I get to the hidden gem of Sugar Hollow Retreat....... and that is the Wedding Planner/Day-Of Wedding Coordinator, Kaleigh!

Kaleigh is an absolute ROCKSTAR. The sweetest human being ever that truly understands your vision and MAKES. IT. HAPPEN! She was always accommodating, understanding, and took as much off my plate as she possibly could. She got to know me as a bride, and as a person. I truly felt how important it was to her to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted and that my husband and I got to enjoy the weekend and not worry about anything. Kaleigh gave me great advice along the way and was always extremely organized. Being a 2020 bride came with challenges, and I am so grateful that I had Kaleigh to help guide me through planning a wedding during such a challenging year. Kaleigh is one of the most hardworking women I have ever met, and one of the kindest, as well. I'll never be able to thank her enough.

You will not regret booking Sugar Hollow Retreat. This wedding venue is going to start booking FAST, because there is nothing else like it! We are so happy to be a part of the Sugar Hollow Retreat family!

Kayleigh and Nicole are true lifesavers!

As a former catering and events planner, I can’t thank Kayleigh and Nicole at Sugar Hollow Retreat enough for how amazing they were. Long story short, my original venue closed and canceled on me 12 weeks before my destination wedding. Needless to say I was panicking!! Kayleigh immediately responded to my inquiry and both her and Nicole were so responsive and empathetic through the entire process of replanning my wedding in 12 weeks! The venue itself is breathtaking and exactly what we wanted. I truly believe the stars aligned and our “take 2” wedding was truly what we were meant to have! As someone who has worked in the business, it’s easy to see that they are true pros. Thank you all for making our wedding weekend perfect!!

The perfect dreamy mountain venue!

Having our wedding at Sugar Hollow was truly a magical experience! We really wanted a wedding weekend where we had more than just one day to celebrate with our family and friends, and Sugar Hollow offered just that! Having on site accommodations was such a convince and really added to our whole experience. We had all of our bridal party stay in the lodge with us, and our family’s stayed in the other on-site cabins. Everyone loved their cabins and said how comfortable their beds were. The lodge, the largest cabin, was big enough for us to host a brunch on Friday morning, with all the equipment we needed to serve a large crowd. It served as a gathering place for everyone for the whole weekend and it was perfect. Everyone had a private room, but could also congregate in the bar or by the fireplace.

Sugar hollow has several options for your ceremony location, so we used one of their locations, the overlook deck as our first look location. We wanted all of our friends and family to experience all the beauty this venue had to offer so we planned a group hike on Friday to the overlook deck, it was the perfect spot for photos with everyone and we loved that everyone got to see the spot where we would do our private first look. There are tons of trails on the property but we took a gravel road up to the overlook so it was easily accessible for people of all ages. A few of our guests also used some of the trails during down time.

On of the other locations on the property is the Overmountain Hall, which was too beautiful to use just once, so we had our rehearsal dinner there, where we had a fire and played bags. The day of the wedding us girls got ready in their beautiful bridal suite, equipped with Hollywood mirrors and cute decor which was perfect for getting ready pictures.

Our ceremony took place right outside of Overmountain Hall and it was just breathtaking with the sunset in the mountains behind us. We loved their covered patio and side patios with cocktail tables right outside of overmountain to use for our cocktail hour.

The reception space at Overmountian Hall was everything we wanted and more! Just stunning! Their catering kitchen and bar came in handy, and the space was perfect for our group. One of my favored things about this space is their fireplace, and their beautiful tables and chairs!

To top off the beauty of Sugar Hollow their staff is amazing! Marty, the owner is the property checked in with us when we arrived to make sure everything was okay, and she was so sweet! She went above and beyond to help us during our wedding weekend and even helped us intercept a very important package to prevent a groomsman attire mishap. Kaleigh, the main coordinator at Sugar Hollow is one of the reasons that we booked Sugar Hollow. She was so amazing helping with vendor suggestions, and making my vision come to life. Even their maintenance man was so nice from the second we came for our tour, to helping set up the day of.

Our friends and family just raved about how much they loved the venue, and we loved that we got to share such an amazing experience with them! With all that this venue has to offer, there is no beating it!
