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!



Big Cedar-Little Details: Come Make Your Dreams Come True

Here's a note about what makes Big Cedar Lodge special. Come make your dreams come true!

I know that I filled out that evaluation form, but I don't feel that I was truly able to say all the wonderful things I would like to say about your resort and your staff.

We have been visiting Big Cedar for many years and I have wanted to get married there since as early as I can remember. From the very beginning and the first meeting with Leah, it has been an absolute dream for me. From the second that we checked into the resort, everyone from the people checking us in, the people at the marina, and the housekeeping staff, all said hi and wanted to make sure that we were taken care of.

The actual day of the dinner rehersal and wedding, it rained and changed all of our plans, but Leah, Tim and Dustin, truly took care of us and made the best of the situtaion. As the bride I was so upset about the rain, but now that it is all over with I would not change a minute of it and that is due to the staff that made it exactly what we wanted even with the rain. The staff and the security that was all involved with the reception was all so respectful and truly made the night so special for us. They all seemed to truly care about us and our guests to have the best time.

Most of our guests had never been to Big Cedar or even to the area because we are out of state and they all had the best things to say about the resort. Even with the rain, they all said how beautiful it was. Actually we have had several of our guests say that they will be planning family trips there because they know that their children will truly enjoy the resort also.

Also the night before the wedding, a lot of guests were at the Buzzard Bar and that staff was soo awesome with everyone. We actually had one of the staff telling us all the history of the resort, and many of the guest truly enjoyed that. I just cannot say enough good things about the staff and the rersort. They are all amazing and I am so truly thankful to all of them for making our wedding day and dream come true. We cannot wait to have children and be able to bring our family there and have Tim and Dustin take our family photos!!

In ending, Leah Hardin was so truly amazing, and I know that our day was so perfect because of her. There are NO words to say my thanks to her and how truly wonderful she is. Thank you to you and all of your staff. We now have the best memories of our wedding and that can never be changed. Also my parents surprised us with a firework show and when many of us got back to our rooms there were messages about it for the guests on the resort to watch, and we loved that. It was so great for us, and we are so glad that the other guests on the resort knew about it and could enjoy it also.

Thank you so much,
Elena and Ryan Rossiter
