Wedding Testimonials

Our daughter's wedding reception was held in the Crystal Ballroom at Tan-Tar-A Resort on June 22, 2013. The professionalism received from the staff at this resort was above and beyond any resort we have ever visited. The planning started 1 year ago and I was greeted by a Tan-Tar-A event specialist Ashley Sopkin. From day one, we knew we had made the right decision to choose Tan-Tar-A as our choice of venues. Ashley was the most professional and accommodating person we have ever dealt with. Being the Mother of the Bride.... she literally made my day so simple. The assistance we received with the planning of our menu, beverages, flowers, lighting, cake, limo service, and "Over the TOP " ice sculpture. Chef Paul, demonstrated his artistic ability to the fullest!  Carving the "Gapstow Bridge" out of a huge piece of ice and displaying it was breathtaking. What great talent from the Chefs.  "Sugar Loft" made the most beautiful, stunning cake imaginable. "Janine's Flowers" were stunning, Zee's limo service was very accommodating. Such a beautiful reception, celebrating a beautiful day and Tan-Tar-A made it all happen without any disruptions. Many Thanks to servers, bartenders,Chefs, housekeeping,maintenance,front desk clerks, security,  accommodations, salon services, swimming pools, dock workers, transportation and especially the Marketing and Sales Dept. 

My husband and I celebrated our wedding date at Tan-Tar-A 26 years ago. I'm happy to say, Tan-Tar-A has always been a great asset to the Lake of the Ozarks. We view the Resort now from our home at the lake. Thank you so much Tan-Tar-A, for being so accommodating for so many generations now and many more memories to come.

I just wanted to say how wonderful it was to work with Ashley. Any suggestions or changes that needed to be made were done quickly and she made sure every last detail was covered. Any time I had questions or concerns I would get a response from her the same day. All our guests raved about the food and service and we couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. So many people commented on how relaxed of a bride I was, but it was simply because TTA took care of the hard part and I truly enjoyed my wedding day stress free! Thank you so much!

“Angie and I wanted to thank all the staff at Tan-Tar-A and specifically Ashley Sopkin for an exceptional wedding reception,  although for all the planning it was over far too fast. We’ll always fondly remember it to be one of the best days of our lives!

Our dealings with Ashley and the staff were fantastic! Right from the initial planning stages to the actual dealings of the big day.  When we arrived at Tan-Tar-A for our reception we were completely blown away by the attention to detail and service we received. The staff treated us, our wedding party, and guests like kings and queens. Everyone was impressed by the, DELICIOUS food, and incredible service from the time we arrived to the time we left everyone was able to completely relax, enjoy themselves, and let the staff take care of the details! Thank you so much for putting together a reception that was all we’d imagined and more we cannot thank you enough!!! We would highly recommend Ashley Sopkin and Tan-Tar-A for your wedding day.”
