The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee




The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds resort in Lake Oconee is the perfect balance between luxury and comfort with stunning views of the lake, woods, and meadows. This lakeside resort with the Reynolds Plantation is furnished with statement, moody furniture and boasts lodge-like charm. Hold your wedding at the most rustically elegant lake resort in Georgia, away from the city and in the heart of nature’s tranquil melodies. Plan your rustic chic wedding at the historic Sandy Creek Barn, a roughly hewn historic wood-beam barn dating back to the 1820s. The stacked stone fireplace and elaborate antler chandelier centerpiece will stun your guests and the antique saloon bar will add to the rustic atmosphere. Or go for luxury with an organic twist at the Ritz-Carlton Ballroom with sprawling views of lake and woods from the wooden outdoor balcony where you and your guests can relax and soak in the sights. Go for charming, vintage, and traditional elegance by choosing the Linger Longer Ballroom located in the clubhouse and overlooking the luscious greens of the gold course. The spacious grounds are perfect to host a lakeside wedding or ceremony in the woods as well. Pick a spot in the forest or right by the lake on The Pergola, on The Landing. Set up a flower archway to say your vows under. You and your spouse will make a lovely picture standing against a background of sparkling waters and towering green trees. Whatever venue you choose for your ceremony, you will capture the natural and serene beauty of the Lake Oconee surroundings in your wedding to create beautiful memories you will treasure for a lifetime.
