Micah did an excellent job officiating and performing a breathtaking ceremony as well as doubling up as our DJ. He really worked the crowd & made the reception run smoothly! Our favorite part was the newly wed game. To Chef Zach, the food was absolutely delicious and we have a box of cookies for our honeymoon! Thank you Peter and the camera crew for capturing all the important moments on our special day! We loved the way you guys played them back during the reception! We will be purchasing the video. You all did an amazing job! When we renew our vows a decade from now we will definitely come back to Occasions @ Stone River! Thank you so much, Linda & Terry Ely

Where to start. We had our wedding at Occasions at Stone River. From the very first time we saw it at the tour, we fell in love at first sight and this is where our search for a venue ended! The grounds are LUSH and green with beautiful flowers EVERYWHERE. All of the... Read More centerpieces were furnished for us – so many choices! Our colors were plum and champagne, of course, they had those exact colors for the table linens. They had many, many colors to choose from. We had so much fun picking out everything. Angela was so wonderful to work with. The chapel was so beautiful and the bride and groom suites are AWESOME. So much space – two huge rooms and mirrors everywhere. Angela gave us the nicest gift. She is so sweet. The stage in the chapel was decorated perfectly. There were so many compliments on and on and on! I just could not believe my eyes when I walked into the reception area. WOW it was more than beautiful… Seeing all the decorations and my colors everywhere was so perfect. People are still talking about the food. We had some special dietary requirements and of course Chef Zach was very accommodating. I can’t say enough about the food. OHMYGOSH!!! It was amazing! My wedding night was the best night of my life and Occasions at Stone River made it all happen for me. Angela is perfect for the job she has. I couldn’t have had anyone better. She took care of all of the details even before I thought to ask about it. It was already done for me. Oh, and one more thing about the DJ – Peter. He was a blast so much fun. Overall I could not believe everything was so perfect. My family and friends are still talking about my wedding and we are a month out. Everyone was so professional and everything went off just like clockwork. So organized and perfect. I can’t thank ya’ll enough.

My wedding day was the best day of my life. I absolutely can't imagine it have going any better!!! Occasions at Stone River is a huge part of why the day was so perfect. We had a Saturday morning wedding. I was nervous about having enough time to get ready at the venue, so... Read More Angela let me get there as early as I wanted to - 7 am!! Angela is the staff wedding coordinator/planner. She took care of everything for us - we hardly had to plan, except to choose what centerpieces we wanted. It made planning from another state much less of a headache. We didn't have to set up or clean up, which was great for us. The venue itself is beautiful. The staff were always nice and quick to make any necessary changes. The DJ, Peter, provided by the venue, was wonderful. We had so many compliments on how smoothly the reception went, and it's all thanks to him. We had a 2 hour phone call with him prior to the wedding and he went over every detail we could imagine. The people over at Occasions truly go above and beyond to make sure each wedding is special and perfect. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose this venue in a heartbeat. Thanks so much to everyone there, especially Angela, Peter, and Johnny!
