Lake Junaluska is proud to offer a variety of venues for your wedding reception. Your day should be special and hassle free, so why not consider having your wedding ceremony and reception at the Lake? We offer catering services to meet your needs. We have also updated our policy to allow hosts to provide alcoholic beverages at private events, including wedding receptions. Browse our reception venues and photo gallery to learn more.
Shackford Hall may be used for both ceremonies and receptions. Hors d'oeuvres (or reception foods) are the recommended items here, as all other menu selections carry a surcharge due to the limited facilities in this building. Outside catering is not allowed.
The Lambuth International Room is located in our historic Lambuth Inn and may be used for both ceremonies and receptions. This large room can be opened up to hold 150 guests or divided up into three separate meeting spaces suitable for a rehearsal dinner. Many wedding parties choose to use this room as their rain back-up for weddings being held at Inspiration Point or the Amphitheater. All of our catering menu items are available in this room.
The Terrace Auditorium has a lot of versatility. From a formal served dinner to a fun and lively hors d'oeuvres reception with a DJ, The Terrace Auditorium can meet your reception needs. All menu options are available for this space due to its proximity to the kitchen. Many wedding parties choose to utilize the outside balcony overlooking the lake as part of their reception. Lake Junaluska must provide the catering services in this space.
The Harrell Center is open and welcoming with expansive views of the lake and Retreat Center. Large double windows and a cafe-style patio lend themselves to an open and inviting feel. Hors d'oeuvres are the recommended menu selection for the Harrell Center Auditorium. We can provide other menu options; however, a surcharge does apply. Lake Junaluska must provide the catering services in this space.
The Kern Youth Center Auditorium is located conveniently between the Colonnade and the pool/parking area. The auditorium is a versatile room that gives the option of many different room layouts and table arrangements. With large windows at lake level, it also makes a perfect rain back-up location (fees apply).
The Harrell Center 201 Room/Balcony, located upstairs in the Harrell Center, offers a small intimate location for your wedding reception. Guests may enjoy the private outside patio area that overlooks the lake. Hors d'oeuvres are the recommended menu item here, since the room is rather small. Other menu items are possible; however, these items do carry an extra surcharge. Lake Junaluska must provide the catering services in this space.
