I had my wedding at Chankaska this Summer. It is a stunning view, but the service is complete opposite. They kept going back on things they had told me I could do. With the amount we paid I feel as though the service was mediocre. Working with the event coordinator made planning a wedding ten times more stressful than it already was. She did not respond to emails or phone calls until she needed to ask me something. I was told we could arrive to get ready and take pictures anytime we wanted. We were told we could bring food in for our wedding party. We were also told there would be a room for the groom and groomsmen to get ready. The Thursday before my Saturday afternoon wedding I received a phone call from the event coordinator telling me I was not allowed to bring food, there was no room for the groomsmen, they must come ready, and we are not allowed to come until 1:00pm (after we had decided on 11am). As a bride I was stressed to the max, and this brought me to tears wondering how we would get it all in. She than told me they did not have the proper cords to play the music and that I needed to provide my own (I paid extra for the sound system already). At the rehearsal I did not have the right cord and the event coordinator said she would go make sure I had the right one. My wedding went off the next day without any issues. Out was absolutely perfect. We only had the ceremony there because of the outrageous price for the reception. Every single thing costs money separately. There is no package even though it appears as there is. I had a wondeful day however, I would NEVER consider it again for anyone. If it was earlier on I would have backed out. It was just not worth it.
