    Absolutely beautiful!!

    We had both our ceremony and reception at Sweet Briar Lodge on 2/15/20. Everything was excellent. There was a lot of communication by the owner from the beginning up to the big day. The food was delicious, the table set up and decorations were gorgeous, the staff was very friendly and attentive. We had about 60 people, but they can accommodate up to 150. Their pricing is very reasonable. I had soo many compliments on the place the day of the wedding, many guests said they want their wedding's there! The only negative was that there is not a place there for the bride or bridal party to get dressed or hide out prior to the ceremony, but we worked it out. I HIGHLY recommend Sweet Briar Lodge!
