Jon & Lydia's Day at Lake Elsie
What a beautiful day and what a beautiful venue! Our guests still rave about how fun the Lake Elsie Wedding Barn was for our wedding. The Barn has characteristic details that you won't get anywhere else. From the original brick walls, to the silo, to the tulle on the ceiling, it all ties together, pairing elegance with rustic charm. The crystal chandeliers and cafe lighting illuminate the Barn with a romantic glow. Beyond its beauty, the owners get an A+!! Marshall and Sandy were there at our beck and call to help move things, serve wine, and assure everything was flowing according to plan. We were so relaxed on our wedding day because of their attention to detail. In the planning process, Sandy walked us through our whole weekend -- from Friday night rehearsal to Saturday night last call -- we walked through it together and were able to envision our entire weekend before it played out. This was extremely helpful for my "type A" personality; we were all on the same page and the details were planned down to a T! Marshall was right there to assist in moving any decorating pieces and had a bonfire ready for us both Friday and Saturday nights -- another "hit" according to our guests! One of the best parts about our wedding package was that we, as a couple, and a few friends got to stay right on location at the Lady on the Lake Bed & Breakfast. We arrived Friday morning and I didn't leave the location until Sunday afternoon! Being able to stay right there was SO convenient! We love to relive our day over and over, and will always cherish the Lake Elsie Wedding Barn!

Lake Elsie Wedding Barn's reply:Thank you for selecting Lake Elsie Wedding Barn. We enjoyed being part of you and Koltin's wedding weekend. Getting to know all parents was memorable. What a great idea for the bridal party to have pontoon rides at the lake side venue. Many happy years.

I could not recommend them more!
The Lake Elsie Wedding Barn was the perfect choice for us! They had several packages to choose from each with different services and prices. Sandy was always very prompt with retuning emails or calls about any questions I had. She was like a wedding coordinator for me! The barn is beautiful and comes with some of its own decorations already set up. Sandy also has a variety of decorations for you to use rather than buying or renting some! Sandy and Marshall were both very attentive and really made me feel like they wanted me to have the best of everything!Sent on 10/13/2020
