The Chimneys Weddings

The Chimneys has long been a beloved wedding venue. For those seeking that feeling of a destination wedding close to home, you’ve come to the right place! We offer a gorgeous log building with three beautiful rooms and a wrap-around porch, as well as a very large flagstone patio that is the home to our namesake towering outdoor stone chimney.

The Chimneys at Big Canoe is set in an awesome natural setting that really set the tone for our wonderful wedding day and evening. We plan to come back to spend an anniversary or two exploring the thousands of acres of green space, lakes and mountains!

Amy & Bob

No matter the season, The Chimneys at Big Canoe is beautiful and event-perfect! Your ceremony can take place either indoors or outdoors. For an indoor ceremony, you can choose to use one of the beautiful rooms in The Chimneys building or the Big Canoe Chapel, just down the road. We can offer a shuttle service for guests to the chapel for the ceremony and back to The Chimneys for your reception.

For an outdoor ceremony, the patio experience is really stunning! You and your guests will enjoy a most meaningful time set amidst sweeping views of the North Georgia Mountains, Lake Sconti and the wooded area above and surrounding the Big Canoe Golf Course below.

From the ceremony, it’s on to cocktails, which can be enjoyed outdoors on the patio or indoors, if you prefer. Imagine your guests sipping libations and listing to music while taking in the fresh mountain air. Or, your cocktail reception can take place inside one of The Chimneys’ beautiful rooms while your dinner reception is set up outside!

I knew as soon as I stepped onto the patio that we had to get married here. (I saw the third green on Lake Sconti as I looked over the railing toward the main clubhouse!)
