Check out what our recent guests are saying about their elopement experience at Cedar Crest Lodge.
“Perfection is Possible. In November we eloped at Cedar Crest Lodge and we already returned for a weekend getaway in April. We were one of the countless couples who needed to change our original wedding plans due to COVID. We could not have wished for a more perfect wedding than what we experienced. The elopement package at Cedar Crest Lodge is perfect. The ceremony was officiated by Rev Peeples who contacted us prior to learn of our preferences. Kadee with Papparazi Photography took the most gorgeous photos that we upgraded our photo package through her.
The property itself is pristine and meticulously maintained. Matt and Laura are extraordinary hosts. When friends and family ask about our stays I always begin by talking about the food. Breakfast every morning was unbelievable and large enough to satisfy the largest appetite. The appetizer, entree, rolls, and dessert were incredible. Before we left on our first stay we bought the cookbook. We highly recommend Cedar Crest Lodge whether for a wedding or a weekend retreat. It is perfect in every way!”
Your Happily Ever After, Your Way
Cedar Crest Lodge is located in a rural setting on 113 picturesque acres with two spacious buildings and ample space for true social distancing during your elopement and subsequent stay. For expansive horizon views, choose the North Lawn for your ceremony. For a stunning sunset and crisp evening air, say “I do” on the West Patio. For couples who want to immerse themselves in nature, have your moment at the 100-year old Pecan Grove (you can even go barefoot), or tie the knot fireside in the lodge for an especially rustic, romantic, and atmospheric elopement. No matter where you choose to wed, you can celebrate with a Champagne toast and a ceremonious cutting of the cake, gourmet garden-to-table dinner on the patio, and a moonlit stroll through our sprawling property as you make your way to the honeymoon suite for a luxurious stay.
