Great reception venue!
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Lake Affect Studios. It was a small event with less than 80 people but the space felt filled and looked beautiful. Stefanie, the venue coordinator, was a wonder to work with. She handled communication with the vendors and even gave us advice during set up. I highly recommend LAS for a wedding reception or other party!Sent on 05/30/2019

June Wedding Reception
We held our wedding reception at Lake Affect in June 2019 and absolutely loved it! We worked with Stephanie throughout planning and she was really great. She returned our emails and phone calls quickly and always answered our questions. We had many opportunities to come back to see the space as we were planning. We wanted a loft feel close to downtown so Lake Affect was perfect. I was able to DIY a lot of the decor and felt like it reflected our personalities. We were able to come in from 10-5 the Friday before our wedding to decorate and set up. We really love the super long bar top they have. All alcohol was done through them and they had several different packages with a lot of variety and add ons that we felt were reasonably priced compared to other venues. There is also a separate "suite" where the wedding party was able to hang out before being introduced. I was a little worried that it would be warm because our wedding was in late June but the space is air conditioned and it didn't feel too warm at all. Overall it was an excellent experience, we had the MOST FUN, and we would definitely recommend holding your wedding reception or other event there! Thanks Lake Affect, hope to be back soon!Sent on 07/06/2019

Glad we Booked Lake Affect Studios for Our Wedding
Lake Effect Studios is a beautiful venue. We had our reception there only, but they have a separate room where the ceremony can be held. They have LED lights that can turn many different colors to match your theme. The event coordinator, Stefanie, is a great communicator who is knowledgable and experienced and really helps ease the stress of preparing for a wedding. They have a nice outdoor patio which is available if the weather is nice. Fortunately we had great weather for our wedding.Sent on 05/29/2019
