Wedding Testimonials

What Our Guests Are Saying:

"We cannot say enough about Sunriver Resort and every team member there who helped our wedding go off without a single hitch. We were originally supposed to get married in May of 2020 and ultimately ended up postponing our day till October due to the COVID-19 pandemic. When originally planning our wedding, Sunriver was a dream. Gorgeous venue. Kind, hardworking people. Amazing food. We were so wildly excited. When we had to postpone, Sunriver was so incredibly gentle, flexible and truly cared about us being able to have the most wonderful day possible. The re-planning with Sunriver was seamless. Finally, when October arrived, Sunriver bent over backwards to make our day perfect and make everyone feel comfortable. Their policies about masks, handwashing, social distancing were completely appropriate and enforced, but the way they executed these policies did not for one second infringe on our perfect day. Even in spaces where plexi-glass was necessary, it was still made to look beautiful and natural. Our wedding was perfect. The venue was unbelievable, the food and drinks were raved about by all guests, and every member of the Sunriver team that contributed to our day, was so kind, hardworking and patient with us. We cannot recommend Sunriver Resort enough. In very weird times, they gave us the best, most beautiful day we could have ever imagined. We are so thankful and will look back on pictures and videos of our day at Sunriver with so much love".

"It was the best day ever of my life!!! The service was amazing, and all staff members are polite. Lynne helped me so much with the coordination of the event, and understanding how everything works. They are very organized and professional. The best thing is, that Lynne and the staff members will help you feel less stressed on your big day. In the middle of these difficult times, the wedding flowed naturally. This is an amazing place to create memories that will last for ever! My extended family, my family and I are very happy with how everything worked out. We appreciate that we were able to celebrate the wedding this year. Thank you!

"Wow!! We got married in Sunriver on 9.26.20. Best decision ever! The venue was beautiful. We got married on the outside lawn and had our reception inside the Great Hall. It was drop dead beautiful. Since our original wedding was canceled (thanks Covid) we had a micro wedding with just family and it was the best day ever. The staff was unbelievably helpful and nice. Wendy our coordinator was out of this world helpful. Due to smoke I had another panic and she assured me we would have a great backup plan I was comfortable with. She texted me day of saying the sweetest message and it was just such a joy to work with her. Helpful, knowledgeable, you name it, she was it! I had the best day ever at the Sunriver Great Hall and I would 12/10 recommend this venue to anyone!! Thank you Sunriver Resort staff!!"

"Working with Sunriver during a pandemic was a breeze! Lynne was great with all of my questions and concerns with how to handle a wedding during a pandemic, whether that be new restrictions from the governor or lifting restrictions! We all felt very safe with the staff, they allowed us to set up table decor the day before so that we could enjoy the process the day of. It was an amazing location and extremely beautiful, I could not recommend them more! It definitely exceeded my expectations & my husband and I had the absolute best wedding day, thank you!" 
Kaylee C 9/20/20

"Sunriver and Wendy specifically will be apart of our memories forever. We planned our wedding day and had everything booked before Covid-19 hit. With so much uncertainty, Sunriver did everything to keep us informed. We continued with our wedding as planned and Wendy went above and beyond to bring what could have been a Covid-19 stressful wedding and made it into one of the most magical days ever! Our family and friends saw what a beautiful and organized day they created for us, brought to life. They saw the joy in my husband's and my eyes as we first saw everything decorated and laid out, to dancing on the dance floor with friends and eating s’mores outside (highly recommend adding this - adults and kids LOVED this!) We look forward to coming back to Sunriver in the future years, one day with our children and showing them the gorgeous location in which my husband and I said "I do". Sunriver and Wendy Collins made our day even more perfect than we planned."

"Having a wedding during a pandemic might sound a little bit crazy, and it actually might be! But, Lynne and her staff at Sunriver Resort helped my wife & I have the absolute most perfect wedding day in August 2020. We are very organized and detail oriented people, and Lynne met all of our needs. She communicated with us when we needed, and she was on top of every little detail to make our day perfect. The location is unbeatable, the backdrops are gorgeous, and the staff is all so friendly. We got rave reviews from our guests about the food! Everyone loved the food and the portions were huge! The venue works very well with local vendors. They all tend to know each other well and work in unison. We would 1000% recommend being married at Sunriver Resort, and working directly with Lynne was such a joy! Thanks Lynne for helping our day be as perfect as possible with the limitations of COVID-19."

"Can I leave a 10 star rating??? Working with Sunriver, specifically Lynne and Wendy, was the BEST experience! My daughter's COVID wedding planning was filled with a roller coaster of emotions. Sunriver staff were the one constant of calmness and flexibility during the whole thing. Sunriver helped us plan many different wedding scenarios. Each time we had to go back to the drawing board to revamp plans due to new restrictions/ lightened restrictions etc, Sunriver was eager to help, were super flexible and so amazing to work with. The end result was an amazing COVID friendly wedding that exceeded even our pre-COVID expectations. Sunriver will treat you like family! We were beyond pleased with EVERY detail being attended to, little surprises here and there, the joyful attitudes of all staff involved and the overall flexibility and teamwork attitude displayed to pull off an amazing pandemic wedding. Don't look any further for a venue!" 
Kelly F - August 2020

"Lynne and her team at the SR Lodge were fantastic and helped us navigate having a SAFE outdoor wedding during COVID-19. Sunriver truly went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel comfortable during these unprecedented times - taking special seating requests from guests, helping us with custom seating charts to ensure safety during the ceremony and meal service, etc. Lynne personally went above and beyond to help with last minute details, was a tremendous help on the big day, and went out of her way to make sure the wedding came together beautifully. The rest of her team and the servers on the night of our wedding were also incredibly kind and helpful."
Jessica T - August 2020

"Getting married in the middle of a pandemic seems crazy. In fact, there were many people who told my now husband and I that we should just postpone our wedding or would bet that our wedding would get cancelled altogether. One of our biggest supporters for seeing our day through was the staff at Sunriver Resort. I got married on Mt. Bachelor lawn and had the reception in the Great Hall and it was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be after almost two years of wedding planning. Throughout the course of the beginning of the pandemic, Sunriver was encouraging and supportive about seeing our plans through and communicating with us what changes needed to be made in order for us to get married in the way we wanted while still complying to the governor's ever-changing mandates. Being a bride in a pandemic is scary but my wedding was still beautiful and everything I would have hoped -- pandemic or not. This happened because of the classic beauty of the venue but also the incredible staff."
Paula B - August 2020

"Perfect Wedding. Sunriver blew us away with the most perfect wedding! The Great Hall and surrounding areas are so beautiful. Lynne and her team were very flexible and helped us plan and change details to match our needs. Day-of, everything went flawlessly and everyone was so kind and helpful. Food was fantastic and all our guests keep raving about the day! We would absolutely recommend Sunriver to anyone!"
Stephanie W. - August 2019

"Working with the event department of Sunriver was one of the most positive experiences I have had while dealing with the stress of planning my wedding! Shelia with Sunriver is absolutely amazing and one of the most patient and caring individuals I worked with! She always made me feel important, that my ideas mattered, and never like just a client. I am so truly impressed and would recommend to anyone looking to host or plan any event, especially a wedding to check out Sunriver Resort!"
Caroline D - April 2019

"Alli and Kelly were incredibly helpful from the very beginning of the planning, every step of the way and all the way to the end. Brianna went far beyond the norm and when the girl who was to to my daughter's hair and makeup called in sick, she was on the phone til late into the night, the night before the wedding, to help solve the problem (some things are just out of your hands). So appreciated all her efforts and attention. Katarina, who did my, and my daughter's hair and makeup, was amazing!!!! She really listened to what we wanted. Our hair and makeup were absolutely perfect. She also jumped in last minute to do my daughter, after the scheduled girl cancelled, so she truly saved the day. We were super grateful."
Meyers - Murrieta, CA - August 2018

"Alli Yorke was so helpful throughout the process! She even helped me plan last minute things before the wedding. She was so easy to contact and communicate with. She is amazing at her job. Thank you Alli!"
R. Hartman - Aberdeen, WA - August 2018

"Alli Yorke and her team in the Great Hall were terrific! The AV team was great! The chefs were excellent! The marina staff and bike barn staff worked well for us."
J. Pickard - San Francisco, CA - July 2018

"Alli Yorke and Kelly Shook made our wedding weekend a HUGE success. We were constantly emailing with questions and changes and they handled everything like professionals. We had an amazing tasting experience with Chef. We were offered a number of new menu options that were to be added to menus later in the year. The custom pazookie station was a huge hit and was exactly what we envisioned!"
C. Luersen - July 2018

"Alli Yorke, Shelia Shelton and Kelly Shook were amazing to work with!"
K. Gunderson - San Fransisco, CA - July 2018

"Wedding Exceptionalism - A Weekend to Remember, There is nothing better than having a wedding celebration that exceeds your expectations. We just experienced this at Sunriver Resort this summer. Hosting a destination wedding for 250 people could be stressful, but it wasn't. In fact, with the outstanding setting of the Historic Great Hall and Mt Bachelor lawn, the exceptional service of the entire Sunriver staff, and a great group of family and friends, it wildly exceeded our expectations. No detail was overlooked and the friendly and accommodating staff took care of everything. When I asked my daughter during the father of the bride dance how it went, her response was "perfect". Can't get better than that. Thanks Sunriver for a weekend to remember - forever."

"We have the highest praise for the way we were accommodated by Sunriver. We were already sold on the setting, the marvelous Great Hall and the other amenities... but, WOW, were we ever pleased by the staff and how they pulled out all the stops at our daughter's wedding. Our guests came from all over the world and there is doubt they will return to Sunriver in the future. Sunriver was a big hit. Thank you, thank you!"

Carol, Mother of the Bride from Princeton, NJ

Sarah, Bride from Oregon City, OR

"...we had a wonderful time and everything went more smoothly than we could have hoped. I think a real benefit of your location is that the vendors you choose for the preferred list know your location like the back of their hand. They have all worked Sunriver weddings a number of times and often worked with each other which made our event run smoothly."
Breyn, Bride from Fircrest, WA
