    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.

    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.

    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.

Lynne has thrived in the event industry since she was old enough to volunteer as the Activities Director at her local library, but knew she wanted to plan weddings at the Sunriver Resort since she was 18 years old. After years of planning a variety of events, including sustainable festivals, mountaintop galas, and weddings of all kinds throughout Central Oregon, she joined the Sunriver Resort team and has found herself home. Lynne’s clients rave about her organization, dedication on the day-of with her seamless coordination, and heartfelt service.


In addition to her love of planning & organization, she spends her free time making memories with her son, turning her fixer-upper into a home, and thrift shopping like it’s going out of style.
