A dream wedding venue & incredible team! We got married at the Gordon Lodge in June 2022 and couldn’t have imagined a better day. The Gordon Lodge is an incredible wedding venue that exceeded our expectations on every level. Amy Starr, the events manager for the property, was the highlight of our wedding planning experience; I can’t think of someone better at their job than her. We had countless emails and phone calls and there was never a question she couldn’t answer. She accommodated every request and helped us curate a wedding that perfectly captured our personalities and kept all our guests very happy. The majority of our guests stayed on the property for the wedding weekend, with the wedding party staying in the White Birch House. This made coordinating and staying connected easy and gave us an immersive “Door County experience.” The entire weekend, we felt so special. Every employee, from the front desk to waiters and bar staff to the servers at breakfast, recognized us as the bride and groom and were extremely accommodating and helpful. Every minute of our wedding day was perfectly coordinated and executed thanks to the incredible staff at the Gordon Lodge. So many of our guests commented on the high level of service and well-coordinated event. We were truly sad when our wedding weekend was over, and it was time to leave the Gordon Lodge. If you have the opportunity to stay the weekend, attend a wedding, or host your own wedding at the Gordon Lodge, you cannot say no.
We stumbled on Gordon Lodge by complete accident while we were vacationing in Door County and randomly picked a cheap place to stay on Expedia. As soon as we arrived, we knew it was the perfect place for us to have our intimate wedding (28 people) in September 2017. We wanted a nice place where the whole family could enjoy a leisurely vacation together without breaking the bank, but still feeling upscale. The environment there is so peaceful and there’s lots for families to do on the grounds. The actual wedding itself was perfect and we couldn’t be more grateful to the Gordon Lodge staff for everything they did! Cayla was an absolute pleasure to work with and we can’t imagine our day without her. We live in Atlanta and the thought of planning our wedding from so far away was intimidating, but Cayla made it so easy. She’s a true professional and quickly came back with great recommendations any time we had an issue or question. On the day of the wedding, Cayla and Amy were rockstars at getting everyone where they needed to be and getting the vendors to do what they needed to. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to rattle either one of these ladies and they can effortlessly handle any hiccups that arise. Our rehearsal dinner (fish fry) was held in the porch of the Event Center, our ceremony was overlooking the water, and the reception was held in the lower level of the boathouse. The food and drinks were fantastic, and people still talk about them. The boathouse was such a beautiful, rustic space that didn’t require any decorations beyond some simple flowers on the table. Everything was perfect and we wouldn’t change a single thing. And our whole family can’t wait to come back here to vacation – we’re so so happy we found Gordon Lodge!
Best venue ever! My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at Gordon Lodge! Honestly, everything exceeded our hopes and expectations. The entire planning process was amazing due to our event manager, Amy. From our first conversation with Amy at Gordon Lodge we knew that this venue would be a perfect fit for us. Amy truly listened to our vision and our budget, and she worked tirelessly on creating a proposal that fit our needs. Amy has incredible attention to detail. Her experience in wedding coordinating coupled with her calm demeanor and easy-going personality definitely helped eased our stress. She was always quick to respond, making communication simple. Even when she was busy with another event, she always made a point to reply to our emails, letting us know she saw our email and would respond by a certain time, and she did. We had our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception all at Gordon Lodge. It seriously has everything you need right on site, which made the planning process that much easier (which is a HUGE plus!) Our ceremony was a beautiful outdoor ceremony right on the water. The water was calm, and the weather was perfect. Our cocktail hour was also outdoors, with drinks and fun lawn games the staff set up for guests to play during that time. The reception hall is spacious with tall, beautiful ceilings, and the dance floor was huge! It was perfect for our guest list of approx. 160 people, and we didn't have to maneuver any dinner tables around to accommodate a dance floor. During every event the staff were absolutely amazing, attentive, and so kind to everyone. Our friends and family raved for weeks about how incredible everything was, especially the food! They have a restaurant on site, so we didn't have to worry about finding someone to cater food for our wedding. Which again, was a huge plus! Gordon Lodge is in a beautiful waterfront location in Door County, making it an ideal spot for wedding pictures. I cannot recommend this venue, and all of its staff, enough. A million thanks to Amy and all of the staff at Gordon Lodge for giving us such an amazing and unforgettable wedding day. It truly felt like a dream, giving us memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Amy Starr and the staff at Gordon Lodge made our wedding even more special than we could have imagined, even during a pandemic. Like many couples who found themselves having to reschedule their Spring 2020 wedding due to COVID-19, we went through multiple iterations of wedding plans at different venues in different cities/states at different dates before we were able to finally secure a date and the perfect space at Gordon Lodge in August of 2020. With three weeks-notice, Amy was able to pull together a spectacular and pandemic-safe wedding for us mostly using outdoor space at the Lodge for our trimmed-down guest list of 40 people. She was incredibly responsive and flexible during the whole process, and if she was able to pull together a beautiful wedding like ours in 3 weeks, then we can only imagine what Amy and Gordon Lodge are capable of within a normal wedding planning timeframe. Our guests mentioned their dinner was by far the best meal they've had at a wedding as well. We are incredibly lucky to have been able to celebrate our special day during these times and have all of our guests remain healthy and safe during and after the event. That is a huge testament to the level of care and detail that Gordon Lodge demonstrated in order to keep our family and friends safe while truly enjoying themselves on our wedding day.
