Be on the lookout for a full update of our experience with this company, and how it affected OUR day, both leading up to our wedding date and many months after. Pine Peaks Wedding and Event Center cares nothing about you and YOUR wedding. The wedding that YOU are paying for $$$. They only care about their "perfect" reputation and the bottom line. Remember this when making a decision for your own special day.
Pine Peaks Wedding and Event Center is an absolute gem, and quite the rare find these days with its exceptional venue, service, but most of all, people running it. I can't say enough good things about the entirety of our experience with them, which is extensive considering our wedding was delayed for a whole year due to Covid! But every step of the way, Priscilla and Corey were there for us. From the initial hardship of having to postpone, to the joy of actually having our perfect day, it wouldn't have been possible without them and I'll forever be grateful for everything they did for my wife and I through our entire process.
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful with soaring pines and a sprawling view of the adjacent countryside. Wind whispers through the tree line which is an excellent windbreak for the venue itself, allowing participants and guests a welcome degree of shelter from any adverse conditions. And the interior of the venue is just as stunning with it's décor. Not only is it magical as it is, but the extensive collection of decorations can make any event exactly as you imagine, whatever the theme. There's so much here that's catered to the needs of your event, and it becomes increasingly clear just how much thought went into the whole thing when it comes to the needs of anyone who'd utilize it. Full sound system, restaurant-grade kitchen which is open to utilize for the rehearsal dinner, ample space that can be converted for dinner, dancing, or gatherings, amazing lights, and the ambience both of the interior and exterior are truly magical. It's its own little island of serenity and warmth.
And the retreat house! My goodness, the retreat house! What a beautiful, sizeable cabin! Our entire wedding party were more than impressed, and my wife and I enjoyed all it has to offer from the heated porch to the full gym! Everything has been thought of for folks to sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves to the utmost. Our entire stay was nothing but bliss as we enjoyed the extensive amenities. Everything you need is here, and it overlooks the entirety of the beautiful property. Best of all, it's adjacent to the event center itself, so all we had to do between setup and wrapping up was just a quick walk back and forth.
I could go on and on, but I'll keep it simple from here on out. If you're looking for a venue to have your wedding, this is your place. The prices, the people, the venue, the service...it's everything you could ever ask for. Priscilla and Corey made our wedding perfect in every way. Absolutely everything was beyond our hopes and dreams, and we're so grateful we were able to have our wedding at Pine Peaks. It was the best day of our lives. It can be where yours is too.
This venue is beautiful! Well organized and put together! They made the day so easy helping out with details behind the scene. Dave and Julie do an outstanding job! They did all of the cleaning after the event, were so kind and put cards and gift locked away and just made the whole day stress free from a venue stand point. The staff is incredible and is something you can’t get at just renting out a hotel, convention center, etc. This facility is built and designed for weddings. Huge room for decoration options they provide as options to use which takes away stress of spending money for decor. So many great options for photo opportunities on site! The best perfect location and made the wedding a dream come true! This is the BEST wedding event center ever! I would 10000% recommend this to all brides!
