The lodge was named Vecoma, which was simulated as a combination of the first two letters of the names Venie, Cotton, and Mather. Today, their family welcomes couples to celebrate their wedding day surrounded by the natural beauty of this family legacy.

  • Vecoma staff persons were always available to answer questions and to guide us in planning the wedding. The facility - inside and out - is beautiful. Vecoma can accommodate any size wedding, and they were very flexible. All policies and prices were given to us when we signed the contract. There were no surprises. I highly recommend Vecoma!
