Absolutely Amazing Venue
When my husband and I were engaged, we looked at loads of venues; but Iola Lakeside Events just simply couldn't be beat for their price, and all that it included (chair and table set up/tear down, access to their backdrops and decorations, a day-of coordinator, beautiful lighting already set up, and loads more). We ended up using their decorations, altar options, and between those and chair/table set up/tear down, it saved us so much stress and money. For the wedding day they did NOT disappoint; they were incredibly kind, professional, informative, and helpful the whole way. For the wedding itself, our day-of coordinator (Chelsea, we miss you!) was very calm as she managed so many behind-the-scenes details. I had to throw some schedule changes at her and she handled them so kindly and helped make them happen. And the venue itself is absolutely beautiful; the outdoor greenery is so pretty for any season, and the indoor barn is an elegant beauty. The included lights are absolutely stunning and perfect for any time of day. I cannot recommend them enough!
