I was less than thrilled when my daughter announced she was having a destination wedding. I worried that being in an unfamiliar town would add a lot of stress to the normal last minute scurrying around to take care of loose ends. I need not have worried. Valerie is an exceptional hostess who really knows what she's doing and made it all work out fine for a lovely occasion. She put us in touch with an excellent DJ and photographer. She knows all the florists and other proprietors. The reception tent has room for a band if your plans are a little more ambitious than ours were. 

The view where the ceremony took place is stupendous - overlooking a beautiful wooded canyon, with live flowers growing all around you. The entire grounds are lovely. There's plenty of room for people to spread out and have some space to themselves for renewing old acquaintances or beginning new ones. Plenty of space in the main lodge for the bridal party to prepare. 

We loved the food. Plenty of it. We were able to completely relax and enjoy one of the best days of our lives without a care in the world. Wonderful memories here.

(Pssst: It's not as pricey as the pictures may lead you to believe. If you're looking for a wonderful place to enjoy a very special day, you'll be very pleasantly surprised at the value you get here) I'm searching my memory, trying to find the most negative thing I can remember, to balance out the review and keep it realistic ... but there really wasn't a single thing that disappointed me. And I'm tough to please. Canyon Crest Lodge was a wonderful surprise.

It has been our privilege to serve so many wonderful brides and grooms. Below are comments from some of the weddings held at Canyon Crest Lodge in the last year:

Please accept our heart-felt gratitude for your efforts in making our daughter's wedding the wedding of her dreams. You and Canyon Crest will have our strongest recommendations for future events. Kim & Mark

Just a "Special" note of thanks again to you and your staff. You were wonderful to work with. Everyone's efforts were greatly apprecaited and recognized. Valerie, you were very attentive, and your grounds were spectacular, with great attention to detail. Love it! Sherry

I hope your summer is going well. Here is the disk I said I would mail. Thanks again for making our day so special! Love, Tom & Kathryn

Dear Valerie,
We all enjoyed the wedding so much and appreciate all that you did to make everything so special! I can't imagine a more beautiful setting for a wedding, and we all feel so fortunate that we were the ones who got to stay at the Lodge. Thanks again to you and your team for a beautiful wedding! Judy

Thank you so have no idea how much we appreciate all you are doing. You have made our dream wedding come true. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. With much gratitude..Love, Jessica Semler

Every one of my 150 guests complimented me on my choice of venue. Everything was perfect and we cannot thank you enough! Thank You, Brenda and Tom

The food looked good and tasted better, I could not believe it. I had seen the amazing gardens and the decorated tent but did not know about the food until it was served. Bridget and Matt

Valerie made my wedding day dream come true. Michelle

Canyon Crest is Awesome - the most beautiful place was made even more beautiful for my wedding. Valerie did everything I wanted and more than I expected. Ken and Beryl

We don't even know how to thank you for all of your support. You are an amazing person! Thanks for giving us the best wedding ever! Lots of love, Michelle & Ed

With warmest thanks for your thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Warmly, Diane & Family

This is just a note to say Thank You for making Bridget's wedding day so special. Family and friends are still talking about the beautiful surroundings and wonderful food. Sincerely, Connie

We are excited to have the wedding at your beautiful lodge. I am certain it will be everything Stephanie has dreamed of. Sincerely, Betty Sue

We received your estimate, which was very detailed and informative. Thank you.  As far as a budget idea, that was a huge help. Both estimates are considerable and appreciated. I do want to express our sincere thanks again for your time showing us your lovely grounds, since we arrived unannounced. Your expertise was very much appreciated as well, and comforting knowing that everything could actually be organized and orchestrated in all areas that day.
We are doing a lot of pre-planning at this point. I would very much like to show my husband, Steve, your grounds as well. I will call and make an appointment with you, after checking with his schedule. Alicia is in Oklahoma now with Matt. With her being there, we can get more details as far as number of guests and date confirmation. 
Valerie, again you are very much appreciated. Your services are a Blessing!!! I will be in contact soon. Sincerely, Sherry Summers
