Just a short drive from where you live is the ideal marriage of ceremonial fare and entertainment for your special event. Plan your celebration on the shimmering shores of Lake Oconee or under 200 year old oak trees, you and your guests will enjoy the royal treatment and benefit from activities only Greene County can offer. You'll enjoy first-class service and overnight accommodations at lakefront cottages or The Ritz Carlton Lodge, and Reynolds Plantation.

There are plenty of things to do before the rehearsal dinner and after the gift opening from golf, boating on Lake Oconee, to shopping in downtown Greensboro or enjoying even more things to do on Lake Oconee. With all the activities offered in Georgia’s lake country, the wedding party will never be bored. Let the ladies munch on goodies during a bridesmaids luncheon at The Potted Geranium and the men can take a guided hunting tour or a trek to Hudson Plantation for a shot on the gun range.  But don’t let weddings be the only time the family gets together; we will help you plan your family’s annual reunion. Once you visit Lake Oconee once, you will want to come back year after year.

Choose Lake Oconee for a destination wedding that you, your family and friends will cherish for the rest of your lives.
