    Our daughter's wedding was a private, outdoor event held on the patio of Cedar Creek A. The lodge provided a list of outside vendors that we utilized and gave us many options for the dinner and reception. Several months prior, we visited the lodge, met the wedding planner, and tasted some of the cake options. We chose the beef filet and roasted chicken and truthfully, I think everyone licked their plates clean! The staff were extremely helpful and handled last minute details with ease.

    We had an absolutely perfect wedding weekend at Big Cedar Lodge. From the first day of our arrival, through three days later, our Big Cedar Wedding Planner, Leah Hardin, was completely focused on making our weekend perfect. We live in Florida and thus, communicated with Leah long distance. After several phone conversations and sharing of a few pictures, everything was exactly or even better than we anticipated. The site of our wedding ceremony as well as the reception were beautifully decorated, and staying consistent with Big Cedars tradition, the food and wedding cake were incredible. After our reception, we continued our wedding celebration and photos at one of Big Cedars nearby sister properties called Dogwood Canyon. We thought only a few of our family would go with us to Dogwood Canyon, but at the last minute all twenty of our guest decided to go. Again, Leah worked her magic and arranged transportation for all of us in two tour buses. Dogwood Canyon is also another beautifully property and well worth the effort.

    Because this was a wedding destination which encompassed several days, we had Leah arrange several of our meals and entertainment, including a chuck-wagon party. This was a huge success. All our our families and friends thoroughly enjoyed this.

    We have traveled the world, and have been to many nice places, but Big Cedar is on top of our "To Do Again List". The property and lodgings are beautiful, and as mentioned the food is delectable. Leah should when awards for her talent being a great wedding/event coordinator. All of the Big Cedar staff deserve kudos for their hospitality and obvious pride of being part of Big Cedar Lodge.

    Big Cedar Lodge was the perfect location for our elopement ceremony. The resort made for a beautiful back drop and the staff went above and beyond to make our day memorable. Every detail of the ceremony was perfectly planned which made for a wonderful stress free day. And our cabin at Big Cedar was perfect for a romantic honeymoon. My husband and I couldn't be happier and we're already looking forward to returning for our 1 year anniversary!

    Leah was fantastic! I was always shocked when I would think of something and email her with questions after hours and she would respond even when her email would notify me that she was out of the office or it being after hours! I couldn't have asked for a more helpful coordinator!

    Big Cedar is an amazingly beautiful place to hold a wedding. They even have a CWP (Certified Wedding Planner) on site to help with every little detail. Leah Hardin was amazing!

    Leah & Big Cedar made our wedding day perfect. By the end of the night multiple people come up to my parents and told them it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The food was delicious, the service was incredible, the atmosphere was gorgeous. Leah made sure our day went off without a hitch. I would do everything the exact same way!

    Amazing! My husband and I were married on the property and stayed for a long weekend. The ladies (Emily, Leah, Jamie) with wedding services were exceptional and I could not have asked for a more smooth and lovely wedding!

    The staff at Big Cedar Lodge's Worman House restaurant did a wonderful job for our wedding celebration. The dinner was very nice and the cake we had ordered through their bakery was beautiful. It was a beautiful evening and the pictures from the evening with the sunset were perfect.

    Big Cedar catered our wedding at Dogwood Canyon. We didn't have a choice as it was required, but we had no doubts that the food wouldn't be outstanding. They say that the bride and groom doesn't get to eat at their wedding, but we both had a HUGE plate of everything that was catered. The food & service were both amazing! We thought the pricing was a little high, as we could have used a different caterer for half the price, BUT when all was said and done, it was worth the price. The meat was a little cold, but I think it was because my plate sat at my table for about 15 minutes before I actually sat down to eat it, since I was busy catching up with some of our guests. All in all - very worth it.

    It was great to have...

    -Consistent e-mail conversations

    This was a destination wedding for us and our families. It could have been difficult to organize from a distance, but your team made is easy!

    We stayed at the Knotty Pine Cottages at Big Cedar resort on our honeymoon and had the best time! The resort was beautiful and a great get-a-way. There were so many activities that we did not have to leave the resort. We would highly recommend!
