Beautiful Venue for an Outdoor Wedding - An Eventective User from FORT WALTON BEACH

Kathryn and her entire team at the Choctaw Lodge Retreat went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was just as we envisioned it. They were extremely accommodating and gracious from start to finish. We chose to get married in the evening to make the most of the canopy of lights in the trees throughout the property. The venue itself is a bit out of the way, but it's unique setting on the banks of the Choctaw River makes it a perfect choice for an outdoor wedding. Our guests have not stopped talking about how wonderful everything was.

Magical Wedding Venue - An Eventective User from Suffolk, VA

We found this venue online and fell in love with the pictures. The truth is the picture you view online of the lodge do not do it justice!! We were so happy with our entire experience at the Lodge. The staff were beyond helpful!! They were so kind and definitely went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I had everything we needed for our wedding and our stay with them. We would definitely recommend the lodge to anyone who is interested in a whimsical intimate romantic wedding!! It was everything we wanted and more!!
