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!



Finding Fun at Big Cedar Lodge

If you’re interested in some friendly, family competition, then Dorothy’s Land Scavenger Hunt is for you.  Named after one of Big Cedar’s most notable characters, the hunt gives families a chance to compete for prizes while gaining an appreciation of the land Dorothy loved.

The fun begins in the Registration office where our associates will set you up with a list and all the supplies needed for a race the entire family will enjoy.  Included on the list are not only items to find; but things to see, questions to ask, and history to learn.  So don’t be shy, guests are encouraged to ask associates for clues or information related to the contest.

What is the best part of Dorothy’s Land Scavenger Hunt?  You never know where it will take you.

The hunt might lead you to The Swimmin’ Hole Swimming Pool, where you can take a dip in the cool water before continuing on your adventure.  Tucked in behind the pool, you’ll find the Children’s Herb Garden, and it may hold the exact item you’ve been looking for. 

Around the bend, the Marina could hold a gem of a find; but don’t miss the unexpected guests greeting passers-by along the boat ramp.  And the horse drawn carriage is not just a nostalgic means of transportation, but much needed answers to several questions.

Can’t find that one last item?  Don’t worry, Associates Lauren and Abbye, will point you in the right direction; but not before offering you a cool drink and a smile.

 It’s all about family fun at Big Cedar, and although it’s not on the list, FUN will be found by all!
