Going to the Chapel?

This week, Big Cedar Lodge would like to introduce JoAnna Stribling, Wedding Coordinator at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. JoAnna is not only wonderful helping couples plan their special day--she is also planning her own! This is what JoAnna had to say about her experiences as a Wedding Coordinator:

As the Wedding Coordinator at Dogwood Canyon I have been blessed to meet some very awesome people and share their special day with them. I am proud to call a lot of them friends, and keep in touch with them after their weddings, and to hear when they are expecting their first born and how their families are doing! It is exciting to watch each and every wedding because they are all very different, even if it is in the same intimate little chapel. I too will be getting married at Dogwood Canyon this September and can’t wait to walk down the aisle and say “ I Do” to my best friend, as I have seen over 80 other brides do in the last 2 years! It is touching to see the emotions and tears, and watch the parents give their children away and the joy that all weddings bring. Dogwood Canyon holds a very special place in my heart, and I would love to share Dogwood Canyon with you too! To find out more about Dogwood Canyon Weddings please contact me at jlstribling@dogwoodcanyon.org.

 

Thank you, JoAnna for all your hard work!  And we should also mention, JoAnna was our Associate of the Month for May.  Don't hesitate to contact her with any questions about your up-and-coming wedding.  She can help make your Dogwood Canyon wedding picture perfect!

Skipper has taken countless adults and kids on trail rides at both Big Cedar Lodge and Dogwood Canyon. He is an all around horse and one of our favorites for sure. Next time you visit Dogwood Canyon, be sure to ask for Skipper!

Plein Air Paint Out at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park

by Big Cedar Lodge 8. October 2012 16:33
Calling all artists and art lovers! Big Cedar Lodge, America’s premier wilderness resort, is hosting a week-long paradise for art enthusiasts from around the country. The Third Annual Plein Air Paint Out will consist of an instructional 3-day workshop led by award winning artist John Bucidin, and an art competition where artists are given two and a half days to capture on canvas the natural beauty of Big Cedar Lodge and Dogwood Canyon Nature Park.

Many of our readers are familiar with the beautiful scenery around the Big Cedar property, but Dogwood Canyon offers pristine landscapes with cascading waterfalls, crystal clear trout streams, and untouched natural wilderness.

En Plein Air, which means “in the open air,” is used as a way to describe the act of painting outdoors. Artists set up easels and quickly transcribe the landscapes in front of them to shapes on the canvas.

Over 100 artists will take part in the event; culminating in an awards ceremony and art sale. For more information, contact our Reservation Office at 1-800-BC-LODGE (1-800-225-6343).


This year’s sponsors include SourceTek, Judson Art Outfitters, SunEden Artist Gear, Plein Air Magazine, Gamblin Artist Gear, Dick Blick, and National Art Shop.
