On June 4, 2016, one of our own staff members chose to exchange vows here at the park. Tiffany Mefford has been an employee of Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park for the past couple of years. She married Brandon Walker in an exquisite wedding ceremony in the pavilion, taking advantage of the lovely weather and breathtaking lake view.
When we asked Tiffany why she wanted to get married here, she said, "I picked Bridal Cave not only because of the absolutely breathtaking scenery or the romantic history, but also for the personal history this place holds in my heart. I remember touring the cave with my family when I was a child. I remember the wonder, excitement, and adventure it instills in you. I wanted my wedding guests, as well as my marriage, to experience all of these feelings."
Tiffany and Brandon were the very first couple to be married on the newly remodeled pavilion. It is the only covered outdoor wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. That means now matter which location you choose to use for your wedding ceremony, the lakeside pavilion or the underground wedding chapel inside Bridal Cave, weather is never a problem.
With the help of Janine's Flowers, the picnic pavilion was transformed into a stunning ceremony location. Lindsey Webster Photography captured the picturesque setting from every angle, as you can see in the photos that we are sharing in this blog. "It was a wedding you dream about as a little girl." said Tiffany, "I couldn't have picked a better venue."
Wedding officiant Jamie Reid performed the ceremony, which was followed by a reception for the newlywed couple at Lake Breeze Resort's reception facility. The couple then proceeded to their honeymoon location at the Lodge at Old Kinderhook.
From all of the staff and management of Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park, we wish the very best for our friend and coworker, and we want to extend a heartfelt congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Walker. If you are looking for a scenic, outdoor wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks, or a unique underground wedding ceremony location, then stop by the park soon and let us show you the beauty and wonder that we have to offer for your special day.
