Where do I even begin!? I have nothing but good things to say about the Echo Lake Inn. This truly was the perfect wedding venue for my husband and I. We live in NY so all planning was done over the phone and via e-mail and Tom made wedding planning so easy! Tom is amazing to worth it! I was constantly e-mailing him with questions and he was always very quick to respond. Our wedding weekend was amazing! The day before the wedding we had a welcome BBQ on the front lawn, the food was amazing and everyone had a lot of fun. It was nice for our families to have that time to get to know each other before the wedding. We had a small wedding, only 50 people and I would say about 40 of them came to the welcome BBQ. And our wedding day was perfect! If there were any problems I did not hear about it. Tom, Kyle and the rest of the staff made the wedding day as stress free as it could be haha. They took care of everything! They set up the centerpieces and any other decor I wanted, I just had to show a staff member what I wanted it to look like and they took care of the rest. We had a buffet style dinner and the food was great! They have the buffet line down to a science, there was no long line that people were waiting on. And at the end of the night the staff took care of cleaning up so we just got to enjoy our after hours party in the Tavern. I highly recommend the Echo Lake Inn for your wedding! People are still talking about our wedding and several people have told us that it was the best wedding they have been to!Sent on 09/14/2018
