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.Sent on 07/23/2021

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.Sent on 03/21/2021

Our wedding at Sunriver was a DREAM.
We cannot say enough about Sunriver Resort and every team member there who helped our wedding go off without a single hitch.Sent on 11/04/2020
We were originally supposed to get married in May of 2020 and ultimately end up postponing our day till October due to the COVID-19 pandemic. First, when originally planning our wedding, Sunriver was a dream. Gorgeous venue. Kind, hardworking people. Amazing food. We were so wildly excited. When we had to postpone, Sunriver was so incredibly gentle, flexible and truly cared about us being able to have the most wonderful day possible. The re-planning with Sunriver was seamless.
Finally, when October arrived, Sunriver bent over backwards to make our day perfect and make everyone feel comfortable. Their policies about masks, handwashing, social distancing were completely appropriate and enforced but the way they executed these policies did not for one second infringe on our perfect day. Even in spaces where plexi-glass was necessary, it was still made to look beautiful and natural. Our wedding was perfect. The venue was unbelievable, the food and drinks were raved about by all guests, and every member of the Sunriver team that contributed to our day, was so kind, hardworking and patient with us.
We cannot recommend Sunriver Resort enough. In very weird times, they gave us the best, most beautiful day we could have ever imagined. We are so thankful and will look back on pictures and videos of our day at Sunriver with so much love.
Sunriver Resort's reply:Catie, thank you so much for your kind words. It was so wonderful to work with you and help you both navigate through your planning. We can't wait to continue to be a part of your story for years to come! Enjoy your happily ever after!
