Wedding Testimonials

The Parents of the Bride Wrote...

Old Kinderhook was a perfect place to bring two new-to-each-other families and their friends together to celebrate a wedding in early December. From the start a year earlier to the final good-bye, the staff and facilities at the Lodge and Trophy Room took my daughter’s wishes and visions and made it happen. All elements including working with our vendors came together and only a couple of us really knew the extent of the efforts made from the lodging to the venue room change-overs and the food and beverage preparation and serving. Our highest recommendation; and we have hosted many weddings; of Old Kinderhook staff, management, and the facilities and especially of Amy Crump.

My wedding took place at Old Kinderhook in September 2015, and I had a phenomenal experience! The venue is breathtaking, and you couldn't ask for a better view! The food was the best I have ever had at any wedding (my guests agreed!). The staff was very helpful and always responded quickly, making both the planning process & the wedding day go so smoothly. These are people that truly care about you, your guests, and your overall experience. They go above and beyond! I would highly recommend Old Kinderhook to any bride. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but you are definitely in good hands at Old Kinderhook! My guests are still talking about what a wonderful experience they had!​ This is a 5 star venue that provides a 5 star experience.

As far as I’m concerned we could not have asked for a better experience. The venue, the food, the service was top notch. And, having you to help guide and coordinate with Heather and Kim was invaluable. We had one little hiccup with the DJ and you took care of that on the spot. Heather and Ricky’s day turned out even more special because of you and Old Kinderhook and as the father of the bride I could not be more thankful.

We’ve been telling all of our friends how great you are and how awesome Old Kinderhook is. We’ve had so many people tell us that this was the nicest wedding they have ever been to and that the food for the reception was the best “wedding food” they’ve had. We could not agree more.

Thank you for all your help!

When our daughter booked her wedding with Old Kinderhook in October 2014 one year in advance of the wedding, the Lodge was under construction; only a shell with open studs and a promise of what was to come. What was ultimately delivered though was a beautiful wedding venue. All of our guests travelled some distance to attend the wedding and most stayed on site at the Lodge, and departed on Sunday (after a great breakfast buffet!) with the greatest compliments about “everything Old Kinderhook”. Many stating they would love to come back.

The Lodge staff made everyone feel welcome and pampered; they went that extra mile to make sure this was our daughter’s special day. The rooms at the Lodge were excellent and roomy and the view of the golf course and the fifteenth fairway, where she had the ceremony, were stunning. Our families and friends enjoyed Friday evening spending time together at the fire pits, playing sand volleyball or just relaxing with conversation from the 2nd floor deck of the Lodge. The Trophy Room food and staff received high compliments from our guests. The golf cottages for the bridal parties were very nice and worked well for wedding day preparations. Several of our guests golfed on Friday and Saturday, the pro shop staff was extremely accommodating in getting us grouped together for tee times, and everyone thought the course was challenging, but beautiful.

Danielle, Blake and Jasen made it all happen and exceeded our expectations, the wedding was gorgeous, the reception food was excellent, and everyone had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend The Lodge at Old Kinderhook for your wedding venue.

We highly recommend Danielle Cornelius, Old Kinderhook staff and the Lodge at Old Kinderhook for a beautiful wedding choice. Sarah and I were recently married at the Lodge. We started with the rehearsal dinner Friday night-pizza and salad buffet. The ceremony was held up stairs in the Hearth Room and was set up beautifully. We were so impressed with how much it resembled a chapel. The reception was downstairs in the ballroom-Danielle and her staff made the transition flawless. We had an appetizer/cocktail hour before the main plates were served. We selected a duet plate with filet of beef and the butter poached chicken, it was absolutely amazing. The service that our wedding/reception received from Old Kinderhook was fabulous.

We were happy to be able to welcome all of our family and friends to stay the weekend or overnight at the variety of wonderful accommodations and resort amenities offered throughout Old Kinderhook. Old Kinderhook is beautifully landscaped and serves as the perfect backdrop for wedding photos and video memories.

Danielle's attention to detail was impeccable and her guidance of the service staff was amazing. You will find no better wedding and event planner then Danielle. She made our special day even more special.

My husband and I got married at Old Kinderhook in May 2016. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Danielle and her staff were absolutely wonderful. They went out of their way to make sure every little detail was perfect, from pulling up golf carts for our photos to timing the ceremony music just right. The new lodge at Kinderhook is gorgeous, we got married in the Hearth Room, which was breathtaking with the rock fireplace and warm feel. Our reception downstairs in the Ballroom was awesome! Our guests especially loved the patio and fire pits. All in all, we love everything about Old Kinderhook! The food, venues, rooms, staff...everything is top notch! Highly recommend having a wedding here, Danielle and her staff made it a super enjoyable experience. If a wedding isn't in your future, than I highly recommend eating at the Trophy Room and hanging out in one of the golf cottages for the weekend. Tons of fun!

Having our wedding at Old Kinderhook was a dream come true. Old Kinderhook is a beautiful place, I originally wanted to have my wedding outside but due to the weather it was moved inside and it was just as pretty inside as it was outside. The outside window lighting made a nice setting on our wedding day. The staff was great, they helped me from Day 1 and I could email or call them anytime with questions I had leading up to my wedding day, which was nice, because everyone knows brides get stressed out easily.

The Groom Wrote...

The Old Kinderhook staff was the key to our wedding success. From the first meeting we had to the final day they were respectful, kind, professional, and flexible. We cannot say enough wonderful things about our special day and would recommend them to anyone looking to get married at the Lake of the Ozarks. We would like to offer our personal contact information for any couples that would like to talk with us directly about our day or if they would like to ask additional questions.

Jason and I would like to thank each of you for making our wedding the most amazing wedding we have ever attended (no bias, of course!) We enjoyed every minute of our fantastic weekend that was made special be each of you and your hard work. You were all extremely accommodating to not only us, but to our family, friends, vendors… everyone! I watched all of you hustle around and you did it with smiles on your faces. Such amazing hospitality! We love Old Kinderhook and hope to visit soon for many years to come. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Planning our wedding was easy. The staff at Old Kinderhook takes care of everything and guides you through the process. We were unsure of how many guests we would have. The staff was very flexible with how we set the room. I thought menu selection would be the most difficult part, because we had a fixed budget. Old Kinderhook offers a wide variety of options … from plated to buffet meals. The Event Coordinator and Chef invited us to visit to taste a few options. We were very happy with our menu selection and the service. Old Kinderhook is the perfect place for your wedding – the setting is unlike any in the area and the service is outstanding. Our special day couldn't have been better.

Hello there, 
Thank-you, Thank-you Thank-you!  We had a wonderful wedding and reception.  It all turned out so nice, you were very attentive and easy to work with, Brian was absolutely wonderful.  The wait staff was overly attentive and very helpful throughout the whole evening, the food was magnificent.  (I even overheard one of the groomsmen say he was able to cut his fillet with a fork).   We heard over and over how nice our reception was.  We couldn't have asked for anything nicer.  David and I were very pleased with how everything turned out.  Kristin and Mike loved it, it was just wonderful!  Thank-you again for going out of your way to accommodate us.
Sincerely, David and Paula

We held our rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at the Trophy Room. The staff bent over backwards to help us get in (we had a last minute conflict with our original site) and get in under budget. The food was fantastic, the facilities great, and the service was even better. We had family in from all parts of the country and all were very impressed with the entire evening. Cannot say enough great things about Old Kinderhook!
