Fall wedding in the Red River Gorge

Transparent. Simple. Customizeable.

Friends, we know selecting your wedding venue can be a confusing process. That’s why we’ve jammed as much value, transparency and ease into our packages as possible.

If you’re planning a Red River Gorge destination wedding, we can help make the experience an enjoyable one.

Simply select the package that best fits your needs and customize with enhancements you care about. Add in a bar package (or not…dry weddings are fun too!) and voila! YOUR day. YOUR way.

No hidden fees. No sneaky charges. No stress. The way we believe booking a venue should be.

Although we require event insurance and a dedicated Day of Coordinator, we offer assistance and suggestions that work with a variety of budgets to help make that easy too. The state of KY does charge a 6% sales tax on rentals and services, but that can be easily split into your monthly payments. Pricing is subject to change, so please refer to your quote and/or invoice for the most recent rates.
