"We enjoyed the variety of blooming flowers and gardens, vast green trees, and the rolling hills we sat up on to take in the views. The large lawn was a perfect spot to relax and play yard games while catching up. We also loved the multiple fire pits where people could sit after a night of celebration. Our Friday night welcome gathering was a hit with the outdoor bar and grill."

"I'm not sure if we could have planned the wedding without the help of Zion Springs. The team truly made it a smooth process and ensured that our ideas, concerns, and questions were addressed. We loved the fact the venue is all-inclusive and we didn't have to coordinate between a laundry list of separate vendors. The check-ins that we had either in person or over video chat was especially helpful to ensure we were on track in checking off time sensitive tasks."

"We liked the fact we would be able to have our close family and friends stay onsite and enjoy more time together from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. Between catching up in conversation, playing corn hole or tossing the football around, and just kicking our feet up to take in the beautiful spring greenery and blossoms we felt like it was the perfect way to celebrate this moment."

They spoke to how Zion Spring's wedding planning was smooth process, especially since it's a one-stop-shop for all the needs of a wedding being an all-inclusive."
