An Unforgettable Cavern Fairy Tale

If you’ve ever imagined exchanging your vows underneath a canopy of trees while surrounded by nature, then Lost River Cave is the wedding venue of your dreams. On your special day, your guests will be wonder-struck as they make their way to your reception at the Historic Cavern Nite Club in one of the largest cave entrances in the United States.

Lost River Cave can accommodate up to 300 wedding guests in its Cavern Nite Club where intimate and grand wedding celebrations can become legendary. It features the original bandstand and bar from the 1930s Nite Club and a glimmering crystal chandelier creates a touch of elegance as it hangs above the underground club space. In addition, eight panels of white drapery and lights extend out from the chandelier and fall to the floor from the columns of the Historic Cavern Nite Club pavilion.
