  • We just booked with candlewood and we could not be happier! Due to covid we had to push our wedding back to 2022 but we could not be more excited to have it at candlewood! The second we walked in and met Conor, we knew it was the venue for us! She is absolutely amazing and you can tell the team at candlewood knows what they are doing! The lake and mountain view is STUNNING and the beautiful windows in the ballroom make it so you can always see the lake. They are so flexible and want your day to be perfectly unique. We cannot wait to continue working with the candlewood team!
