    Great experience

    They were amazing and made us feel like we were home. Gave us enough time to walk around, dress up and get ready for the ceremony. They also were very patient with our two kids, 5 and 1 year old. That meant a lot for us.

    They’re so wonderful!

    Planning a wedding is chaos, and these lovely folks make it all so easy. Your wedding can be as simple or extravagant as you want. They answered every single email with patience and kindness (typically the same day!) The elegance of Out There and the deck just popped in photos and looks/feels like a fairy tale. We had some family emergencies the week before the ceremony and they offered immense flexibility in anticipation of possibly rescheduling. Once the big day came, they took care of every last detail so we could just focus on each other and enjoy it. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Cavender Castle was the absolute best option and the price just can’t be beat!!

    Laura- WOW! Thank you for the wonderful review! But you are the one who deserves all the credit. First the pandemic... then a serious family illness, lots of uncertainty. You handled it all with calm and grace. Our part was easy compared to everything you were dealing with. Thank you for letting us do our thing!

    Small Mountain Wedding

    After visiting with Rick at Canveder Castle we knew this was the perfect spot for our wedding. They did not disappoint!!! We had small wedding but were treated as if we were the King and Queen. Rick did a fabulous job with the ceremony. Cyndi had everything set up for the reception and Delaney was a terrific photographer, very outgoing and enthusiastic. It was a wonderful Friday evening wedding that we will remember and treasure forever.

    Hidden gem!

    We decided to get married spur of the moment and wanted it to be on July 4th! Rev. Rick was so accommodating and helpful in everyway! It ended up being so much more than I ever imagined! Whether your doing big or small like we did this place has it all with several options for the ceremony then you can take pictures anywhere you like! Thank you Rev. Rick and Pearl 🐾

    Amazing Experience

    We can’t say enough good things about our experience. Rev. Rick Durham made our ceremony perfect. He put us at ease and made us feel so comfortable. He even volunteered to take pictures of us after the ceremony since it was just the two of us. Overall we had the perfect experience here!

    My savors in a time of doubt!

    Just when I thought things couldn't have gone better with COVID-19 and canceling our big Florida wedding - I found Rick at Cavender Castle and they made our day the most amazingly beautiful day I could have ever asked for. Delany our photographer made my husband and I feel so comfortable when taking pictures and making memories. Our families were thrilled with how Rick performed our ceremony - so warm and personal. I truly couldn't have asked for a better team and place - this team goes above and beyond!

    Sky Valley Wedding of 4

    Exceeded all expectations! We were scheduled to be married on the same day in Breckenridge, CO with our immediate family. We changed our plans due to Covid-19, and it ended up being us and our two children in Dillard, Georgia. The weather was cold and rainy out entire wedding day. We asked if they would be willing to come back to take our photos when the weather turned, and they agreed. That made us very grateful. Very personable people and they do a great job! Recommend 100%

    Best wedding duo ever!!!

    They were both so professional and kind. Our wedding was a destination wedding, we didn't know anyone up there, and they were very gracious and helpful. Our flowers weren't right, and cindy made phone calls right away. I cant say enough wonderful things about them

    Jenny- Thank you for the wonderful review. We take great joy in making destination weddings easy for our clients. But actually you deserve all the credit. Due to Covid-19 you were not able to have all the guests that you originally expected. But instead of going negative, you stayed super positive. THAT'S what made your day such a success! We wish you all the best!

    Rick and Cyndi really went out of their way to make our wedding day something to remember forever. Rick was so quick to respond and had a plan for everything to make it easy. The day of everything was set up beautifully and the ceremony was perfect. We couldn’t be more happy.

    Great venue that doesn’t break the bank!

    The venue was great, the ceremony was perfect, everything was prepared before arrival and we couldn’t be more satisfied with how everything went. We were able to get a variety of photos at different parts of the venue and it was all beautiful.

    What an amazing destination wedding!

    Rick and Cindy are just an amazing team and helped my husband and I to have a special, small, intimate wedding ceremony in Elijay, Ga. They were so flexible on times and days. Cindy's photography is awesome and we are so happy with our pictures. She takes her time and gets very creative with her photos. It was so much fun doing the photography shoot with her! Rick performed such a special wedding ceremony and we even go to choose our vows. He was friendly, sincere and we felt as if we had know both him and Cindy for a long time. They really helped make our day special and very memorable! They are so much fun to work with and I would highly recommend them! The price was very affordable and well worth the money. I can't thank them enough for giving us the most special wedding we could've had!

    Rave reviews from friends

    Everyone commented on how wonderful the wedding and reception were. The caterer and cake that we chose on Cyndi's recommendation received VERY high marks. As the Mother of the Bride, I really appreciated Cyndi. The day went very smoothly and I could pay attention to the guests because Cyndi had everything else under control.
