    Amazing Venue! Don't wait to book!

    We had our wedding at Lost River Cave this fall and it was absolutely perfect! We received so so many compliments from the guests on the natural beauty of the venue. About the most unique atmosphere you can find for a reception, that's for sure!

    Maegan made it an absolute breeze to book the spot, and was great about getting back to us with any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, her and the rest of the team at Lost River did everything they could to make our day run smoothly! The River Birch Room they have available was also the perfect place for the Bridal party to get ready/hang out and store their items during the ceremony/reception. This venue really has everything you could need.

    The only thing we could possibly complain about was date availability, since almost every Saturday in the fall was already booked 18 months out, but that just means you shouldn't wait to get in touch with them!

    Simply the best venue ever!

    The team at Lost River Cave, especially Maegan, were so incredible and helpful to work with (particularly during these crazy times of COVID19)!!

    I had stumbled across the cave online while looking for a venue and it caught my eye, it was so beautiful and unique. So we planned a tour, my husband and I fell in love with the cave as soon as we saw it. This was the place we wanted to get married, no doubt about it.

    From beginning to end Maegan was the absolute best to work with- from giving us a list of vendors in the area she recommended to keeping us up to date on the latest guidelines/guest limit/etc due to COVID. The entire team helped ensure the evening was a fun celebration while still remaining safe. I can't thank them enough for helping to make our dream wedding come to life!!!

    Wonderful, beautiful, special. Best idea ever.

    We had our wedding here! It was the best idea ever, you won't get anything else as unique and beautiful! I wish I could do my wedding over again. Elliot Events, tiffany elliot & ebony Edmonds, out of Nashville did our wedding planning, they are best you can get. I loved them so much, best experiences ever.

    The location and the staff made our wedding FANTASTIC. Everyone commented on the beauty of the location. Everything from the planning to the cleanup was easy and made this an event to remember.

    Great but had to cancel

    They’re making people wear a mask currently and their guests. Idk about you but I couldn’t imagine being a bride and wearing a mask. Upset I have to cancel this venue.

    Lost River Cave's reply:

    Hi Alacia, thank you for your feedback. We certainly understand your concern. Due to current Kentucky guidelines, we must require couples and their guests to wear face coverings. This does not include when couples or guests are eating/drinking or able to maintain a distance of six feet or more from others who are not in their immediate household. By following state executive orders, we are striving to ensure guest & staff safety on every couple’s special day. We are evaluating the situation as often as possible and will update our requirements as things change. Our hope is that by 2021, when your wedding was set to take place, some of these requirements will not be necessary.

    Wishing you all the best,
    The Lost River Cave Team

    It rained during my event and we set up the ceremony space in the bottom of the cave area where the receptions usually are. We pushed the reception tables to the side during the ceremony. We had ~120 guests and moving the tables in between ceremony and reception was very easy. I would recommend this as a rain out plan as opposed to using the top area of the cave where there is very limited space.

    The site was absolutely amazing! It was so unique and different and we had tons of comments on how great the place was. The price was very reasonable for what we got. We had issues with the people forgetting that we had booked the "getting ready" room and they booked a baby shower in it instead. They let us use an office instead but it was no comparison and was inconvenient but it was better than standing outside in the middle of August. We had an issue with one extremely rude employee there before the wedding but everyone else was very polite and helpful.

    Its a beautiful venue, but they have very strict timelines for weddings that they offer putting them at a disadvantage. I also feel as though they are over priced.
