Hear It From Fontana Couples

Perfect for Events!

“I recently had my wedding ceremony at Fontana Dam, followed by a reception at the Sunset Deck of Fontana Village Resort. It was a truly spectacular event and I loved every minute of our celebration. I cannot give enough credit to the team of event staff, bar team, chefs, and most of all the event coordinators!”

Absolutely Breathtaking

“Fontana Village was the perfect place to have our wedding. The planning process was made easy with multiple inclusive options including food, alcohol, decorations, and locations. The outdoor Overlook and Pavilion location was absolutely breathtaking for the ceremony. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating. We are looking forward to visiting Fontana Village in the years to come to celebrate our marriage and enjoy the mountains. ”

We’ll Treasure It Forever

“My husband and I got married here a few months ago and we are STILL in disbelief of how magical our wedding weekend was at Fontana Village; we could not have ever imagined how perfect it turned out! There are plenty of outdoor activities, pools, putt-putt/games, hiking, the marina, the gorgeous mountains, and not to mention the DELICIOUS food. Our guests are still raving about how incredible their time was; many of which are already planning their trip back! Words can't express how thankful we are that we found Fontana Village. ”

Highly Recommend

“I could not have been happier with my wedding at Fontana Dam. Two years later, our guests still talk about how amazing it was. All of our guests were to be able to stay on the property, and walk to and from their cabins to the rehearsal dinner and reception. The reception hall is quite big, and has a large fireplace. I would highly recommend Fontana Dam for any couple looking for a rustic/woodsy wedding in a beautiful location”

You’ll Enjoy Every Second!

“We were so lucky to stumble upon Fontana Village Resort for our wedding venue. This was the perfect mountain weekend and all of our friends and family had such a great time. Every bride says "expect at least one thing to go wrong on your wedding day," but Tabitha honestly made the day flawless. The food was so delicious, the views were perfect, and we will cherish our wedding day forever. ”
