This is seriously the best venue out there! Its gorgeous, affordable, unique, and arranged perfectly. The owner Joanna is so easy to work with and so sweet! She also took our photos and they are amazing. This venue is a bit off the beaten path but that helps to make it your own private wedding oasis. We could not have been happier and everyone that attended said it was the prettiest venue they had ever seen. It has everything from a dressing room to a kitchen and decorations on hand. We loved it!!Sent on 10/03/2018

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.Sent on 12/02/2018

We had such an amazing wedding day on 5/7/2018. Joanna was so helpful with planning out big day and very accommodating to our budget needs. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and all of our guests tell us over and over again how they thought it was so much fun and the perfect setting. Couldn't have asked for a better venue to hold out fishing themed wedding.Sent on 09/26/2018

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!
Joanne Baldwin is a great wedding planner.
