Wedding at Iola Lakeside

Truly a beautiful and memorable experience. My husband and I loved working with every member from this venue who created such a beautiful day for us. Every detail was attended to and each person from within the package took their role personal and made us feel like we were a part of the family. The entire process from consultation to day of was handled very seriously and as a detail orientated person I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better coordinator. I highly recommend choosing this venue!
