    Flawless Hosting Experience

    It was an absolute pleasure to receive a venue tour from Kelly S. She answered every question we threw her way with ease, was timely in her coordination and communication, and was patient and accommodating with our accidental lateness. While we didn't end up moving forward with the location, favoring something closer to home in California, I can only imagine how pleasant it would be to work with her and the staff at Sunriver, as her hosting was flawless in execution.

    So Grateful

    My daughter and her fiance chose Sunriver pre-pandemic because of the beautiful Great Hall and the excellent reviews of the food. We contracted for a November 2020 wedding. Several weeks later COVID surfaced as a commonly understood threat and, well, the rest is history! A history we are still living! Over the following year, Lynne Cahill and the staff at Sunriver worked with us, guided us, supported us, contemplated with us, commiserated with us, and shared our journey through the unknown to the ultimate rescheduled wedding on March 13, 2021. Along the way, there were so many changes, so many uncertainties, so many decisions to be made and made again as the COVID situation shifted. Although we couldn't have known what was to come, I am profoundly grateful that we chose Sunriver as our venue. My daughter and I always felt that Lynne and the staff were working with us as a team and had our backs. They were adaptable, responsive, creative, level-headed, and up-to-date on current COVID regulations and trends. As our family struggled through the year, our constant mantra was "Thank goodness we're working with Sunriver!" The well-considered and implemented safety protocols meant that our limited number of guests felt secure at the venue and on site -- while the confident, and positive attitude of the staff created a relaxed atmosphere. Structural elements and protocols required for safety are stylishly implemented, minimizing any sense of compromise or oppression. The result was that my daughter managed to have the "wedding of her dreams", despite all of the alterations and adjustments! The guests raved about the food, complimented the smooth flow and seamless organization of the evening, and reported having a fantastic time! And for the bride and groom, the staff has multiple special touches in place to make them feel taken care of and special. The reviews on the internet make clear that Sunriver is an excellent wedding venue, which is why we chose them. But to be able to maintain that excellence during a year such as this last one is an impressive accomplishment. We will be forever grateful for our choice and to Lynne and the staff for helping to create such a fantastic experience and memory for my daughter, her groom, and our family and friends.

    Sunriver Resort's reply:

    Parthenia, thank you so much for this lovely review! We are so happy we were able to provide a great experience for your family, especially during a pandemic! We hope to see you all back here in the future.

    Beautiful venue, excellent service

    Beautiful place, very competent & experienced staff, smooth coordination with the rest of the vendor team. Takes a lot of the stress off of the day knowing that everyone has it together. Moved the ceremony for rain, & it turned out better than had the weather been clear. Looking forward to having anniversaries here in years to come. Thanks for all of the work involved with providing a great experience for ourselves & our guests!
