    Great venue!

    Lauren & Chris made our wedding so perfect. The food was fabulous. The atmosphere was perfect for our family and friends. We had such a great time. They kept us on target for our timeline, worked with us so closely helping us plan everything. We didn't have to think about anything that day. They took care of everything. We booked our DJ, Flowers, Cake, minister through them as well. All top notch vendors! Thanks so much to all the staff at Lake House. If you want your dream wedding, book here. You won't be disappointed.
