    Amazing wedding venue!

    Joanna is so awesome to work with! Her venue is beautiful & well worth the price! We could not have asked for a prettier place. The lake house is also a nice little touch! Joanna had it perfectly stocked with everything we could have asked for. We had an amazing experience & hope to go back to the lake house for mini vacations!

    Great Wedding Venue

    My daughter, Chelsea and her newlywed husband, Todd, had the most beautiful wedding ceremony at The Carolyn Baldwin Lake Pavilion! The setting for the ceremony and reception was perfect for the bride and groom and their 80 guests of family and friends. JoAnna was most helpful in providing guidance and support for our wedding preparations. The weather was perfect for an Autumn wedding, as the colorful leaves provided a great background and reflected on the lake. Everyone was relaxed, comfortable and had a great time! Also, the atmosphere was so kid-friendly and the children had fun, along with the adults.

    This is one of our favorite places to DJ. The lake view and facilities are rustic yet beautiful. Being there feels more relaxing and more like a family event than being in a formal ballroom. Joanna goes out of her way providing great service to her clients. The dock area is a beautiful place to have your wedding ceremony and give your photographer a variety of options for great pictures. I can't say enough about this hidden gem of a venue!
