Our wedding coordinator was Charlene Kelley and she is/was AMAZING! She genuinely cared about our wedding and was professional every step of the way. 4 days prior to our wedding, our venue was canceled due to the fire near Yosemite. She relocated us to an amazing venue (The Majestic Yosemite Hotel) and even showed up for our rehearsal and the day of our wedding to see that everything ran smoothly. Without her, our wedding would have been canceled. However, she went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was perfect. And it WAS perfect. Without her knowledge, expertise, and genuine concern, we would have had to reschedule our wedding. We LOVE Charlene and could never give her enough praise for what she has done for us. If we could, we would give her one million stars! :-)Sent on 09/08/2017

Let me start by saying Samantha Wasson with Tenaya Lodge is the most talented and professional wedding coordinator/planner/vendors I have ever worked with.Sent on 05/09/2017
When my original planner absolutely failed me, Samantha took over and she went above and beyond to make sure my wedding was perfect.
She stepped up in every way imaginable, from budget to vendor management to decorations to guests. When my dj was suggesting songs last minute I didn't like, she was even able to come up with our grand entrance song!
This woman is a gem and I hope every bride who books with the lodge is lucky enough to work with Samantha.
She had my family smiling during a time of stress. Every detail was addressed and she eased my concerns especially when my original planner failed me.
She is a gift to Tenaya.
Now, onto the lodge. I see some people complain on here about "hidden fees". I can tell you first hand, every charge that the lodge is going to incur shows on their contract. In fact, by the end of my wedding we received money back. Yes there is gratuity and taxes included in their pricing. This made it easy to manage the event staff, knowing their gratuity was taken care of in advance.
As for the lodge itself, I received nothing but compliments from guests. They were all amazed by the professionalism and courtesy of the staff. The beauty of the lodge is unsurpassed and I am beyond grateful to have worked with the talented and courteous staff there. My one suggestion would be for all brides to visit the lodge before choosing their colors. Every detail from storage to floral was addressed. This place is top notch and for the price, it truly can't be beat. I searched long and hard on the Central Coast for a venue that would even come close in terms of class, quality and professionalism, nothing can compare.The food was buffet style, and guests complimented the quality, taste and selection. Thank you Tenaya for a weekend we will never forget.
