I am writing this review from the perspective of the Mother-of-the-Bride—which in December of 2012 I was (at Cavender Castle in Dahlonega, GA). My daughter chose the venue and it began as an “Elopement” Ceremony Package that morphed into the “Perfect” Ceremony/Reception Package—and then some. Besides the Bride and Groom, we had about 32 guests. I initially communicated with Cyndi and Rick Durham, but that was all that was necessary. My daughter knew what she wanted and Cyndi and Rick worked out the details with her and her fiancé in a thoughtful and super helpful manner.
The wedding and reception were both exceptionally executed through Cyndi and Rick’s guidance. All I had to do was show up and enjoy the moment—and that’s exactly what I did. The atmosphere was very festive and fun— very down to earth. I felt stress free and relaxed because Cyndi and Rick had everything under control. One expects weddings to be a little stuffy and semi-boring—but that was not the Cavender Castle experience at all. It was truly fun-filled and positive from beginning to end
One final but important element of my Cavender Castle experience—that impressed me very much—was how all the information that I received during my initial contacts with Cyndi and Rick was actually followed up on and fully completed by them. What they presented to me during our first communications—that they could and would provide for the wedding (at the fees quoted) was 110% completed. They were honest and upfront from the start.
I greatly appreciate all the hard work that Cyndi and Rick and the Cavender Castle staff did to ensure a picture perfect wedding day for my daughter. It was truly a “Royal” Wedding—without the royal pain!
Sincerely,
Deborah (Mother-of-the-Bride)

If your looking for a spectacular place to have your wedding this is it!
My family and I had an awesom time. Both my new husband and I can't believe how great Cyndi and her husband Rick the owners are with making sure everything is stress free and exceptionally beautiful.

All my family and friends are still talking about the terrific jobs the flowerist did on all the flowers. Omg, you have to use their florist she is unbelievebly good. Not to mention the wedding cake lady; who made sure our cake not only looked good but it tasted delicious. Rick is a passionate minister of ceremony who lives and believes in the vows he shares from the heart. I nearly cried while he was doing the ceremony because of they way he speaks to the heart and breath life to the words during the ceremony. You will always feel welcomed as family with Cyndi as your wedding specialist. Cyndi is the kind of person you want on your side on such an important day to get everything in order and make sure you are given priority as the bride. She knows how to deal with the entire family ( the cooperative ones and the non-cooperative ones) making sure your day is kept "Special" for you! She really kept my best interest at heart from start to finish no matter how what. To all the brides out there, "Cyndi is da bomb" she is by far the best wedding specialist!

The photographer was also super on point with making sure he captured all the things we imagined we wanted captured and more.....

The Cavender Castle's photographer took the most outstanding and creative photos imagineable. He gave my husband and I photos of true royalty, that say's Cavender Castle.

Rick and Cyndi at Cavender Castle were absolutely amazing! If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing! They were so understanding throughout the entire planning process and made every wish a dream come true. Cavender Castle is the most perfect place for the most simplest small wedding all the way up to the grandest of weddings. I recommend any event be held at Cavender Castle. Everybody there is so wonderful! Thank you Cavender Castle and team for making our fairy tale dreams come true!

Rick and Cyndi are very professional and are very good at what they do. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and they love pleasing there Brides and Grooms.

Our wedding was amazing and it was way more than what we expected! They went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we imagined it would be. Even though we hit a record temperatures of 105 degrees it was still amazing.

Cavender Castle weddings are beautiful and breath taking. The food is delicious, the ceremony and receptions are amazing.

Rick, Cyndi, Todd (my husband), and I met as strangers and came out as friends!

Thank you Rick and Cyndi for everything you guys have done! You guys are truly amazing!

Rick and Cyndi,
Brooke and I can't tell you enough how special you made our wedding. You made it the most memorable experience of our lives. The way everything was handled was very professional and you were all so involved since the day we met. We couldn't imagine anyone else putting this together and there is no way we could ever repay you. The amount of love and passion that went into this made it a dream wedding that will never be forgotten. The whole thing was like a dream and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. God bless you for all that you do for others!

Cyndi and Rick are fabulous! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone! The outdoor ceremony site is perfect, and the indoor reception area is wonderful The food is absolutely first class - the team there makes sure every second runs smoothly. Since Cyndi and Rick own the business and also run the events, they are totally invested in making sure everyone has a good time. I had so many people tell me they thought it was a really fun wedding, which is exactly what I wanted. All the photo-spots around the castle are lovely - we got so many great shots! I loved the whole day, and didn't go thousands of dollars in debt either. The BYOB part of the venue lets you seve great alcohol and keep costs for an open bar under control. Every vendor Cyndi recommended was perfect - I just can't thank everyone there enough for making the day so wonderful!

Seemed very responsive before the wedding. Helped get everything set and helped us find our cake person. However we asked to change out mixed vegetables for pasta, and she said ok but on the day of the wedding there was no pasta. Also it took 3 months to get the deposit. Lastly, there was bleach in the fountain in the grooms path. It was splashing and wrecked some of our dresses.
