We had our wedding here in August 2007. Sure, somethings happened that we didn't want, but what wedding doesn't? We had family and friends in town from all over the United States. Everyone was able to rent cabins or stay at the lodge. It turned into a 4 day party! We wanted our wedding someplace where we could party and no one had to drive anywhere. We rented the Bear Paw Lodge for a couple nights and had our rehearsal dinner there. We BBq'd and all the girls helped make sides. We had a blast! No one telling us to be quiet or don't do this or that. There is a loft in the lodge with all kinds of games for the kids. From what I've read, the cabins are under new management, so I'm not sure how things are run now. We were disappointed that the pool wasn't in as promised when we had our wedding. Not sure if it's in now. The total price for our wedding was under $4000 total, for everything, food, ceremony, photos, dress, tux, etc (friends and family paid for their own cabins and travel). I think they have wedding packages now, but they still look pretty reasonable. The food and photography were awesome...I'll post some pictures and they'll speak for themselves. We were able to bring our own alcohol, which helped with the costs. The cabins are a few minutes drive from downtown Helen. I highly reccommend Nacochee Grill for lunch or dinner. The food is awesome! When our family talk about our wedding, they still say it was one of the best weddings ever at the perfect location! We're even thinking of having our 10 year anniversary/family reunion here!
