The Most Award-Winning Bridal Chapel in the Ozarks!

Bridal Cave's first modern-day wedding occurred almost 70 years ago! Since then, our unique wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks has joined over 3,600 couples in marriage. Our cave has a long history of weddings, starting with two Native Americans from Osage Indian Tribes a very long time ago. We have continued the wedding tradition inside our Lake of the Ozarks underground wedding chapel since our first wedding and have become the most award-winning Bridal Chapel in the Ozarks! In fact, we have received several awards from well-known news sources, take a look! 

Award Winning Bridal Chapel!  We are grateful for the success of our wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have had the honor of being a part of so many couples special day, and that is the reason we continue this tradition at Bridal Cave. We think our underground wedding chapel is pretty special, and so do a lot of other people. Check out the awards we have received:   Trip Advisor Top RatedRural Electric Missour…

What Mom's Really Want for Mother's Day!

Mother's Day's is this weekend and many of you are probably wondering what to get Mom for Mother's Day. Presents are nice but Mom would really like to just spend time with her children. What better way to spend the day with Mom than with a day in nature with the family at Lake of the Ozarks best outdoor attraction. Let's face it, Mom does a lot for the entire family and she deserves a day dedicated to her! Today, Bridal Cave would like to feature how to treat Mom to the best Mother's Day possible!

Make Her Breakfast!  Start the day by making her breakfast. Breakfast in bed is nice, but you should let her sleep as long as possible. So maybe skip breakfast in bed this year and have a nice breakfast at the table with the whole family! She will appreciate the effort you put into making breakfast but if you wake her up, she may not appreciate it as much as you hoped... For the Moms with little children, let the kids help make breakfast but be sure that another adult hel…

Our Reunion was Truly a Night to Remember!

As many of you already know, Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park celebrated their 70th Anniversary this past Saturday, April 14th, 2018. To celebrate this huge accomplishment, we hosted an employee reunion. Wow, what a night we had! This event was defiantly one for the books. It truly exceeded our expectations as current and past employees got to share memories made at Bridal Cave! Our family attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks has been a true success and we owe a lot of that to our wonderful employees.

Reunion Recap  Our night started at the old German Restaurant at the top of the hill. (We recently acquired the property, look for future blogs to see the plans we have for this space!) We shared memories and socialized over dinner provided by the Butcher Shop in Camdenton. Our staff and Joyce Thompson and Sheryl Murdock worked really hard to decorate the space. The decorations alone made the night one to truly remember! We had every wall covered in old and new Bridal Cave memorabil…
