We absolutely loved this venue! We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect venue that would work with our Mexican-themed wedding, and we were so glad we chose Lake Lanier. We picked the PineIsle Point ceremony and reception space, which was absolutely breathtaking! The view of the water is so beautiful and the open space of the reception was perfect. We worked with Olivia who was awesome!! She was very professional and fun to work with! She was always available for any questions or changes that we had (which was a lot lol) and she never made us feel like we were bothering her, even though we had a lot of questions and changes! She was such a huge help with making sure everything went smoothly the day of our wedding. We had a lot of custom requests which were very easily accommodated by her. All of the staff the day of the wedding were very professional, and we felt like everything went very smoothly! We also worked with Lori and Andreja who helped coordinate with guest accommodations for the weekend. They both were great to work with as well. We would definitely recommend this venue - not only is it probably one of the best venues in GA, but the overall experience was wonderful. We also got compliments from the staff who worked our wedding who said some very nice things about our reception which was greatly appreciated. Thank you Lake Lanier for helping us have or dream wedding!!!

We had our dream wedding at Legacy Pointe in mid-may. After the first visit to Lanier Islands and seeing the venue, we were all-in and had no doubt that we wanted our wedding here. Initially we met with Andreja who was great to work with and showed us around and got us set up and started. Then we worked with Olivia Hinze our wedding coordinator who is the best ever and made the entire process so easy and awesome! She was very organized, communication between us was so easy and she was very responsive to all our questions. She accommodated all our detailed requests and made sure everything we wanted was possible within our budget. Thank you so much Olivia! The wedding showcase allowed us to sample and select our awesome buffet menu including drinks, meet all the vendors you can think of and really give an idea of how everything is put together for a wedding. The resort itself is clean, professional, and top-quality hospitality. The complimentary honeymoon suite is so great! Overall we are so glad we had our wedding here and we recommend it to anyone who is looking for an awesome wedding venue. They provide the entire package. You will not regret it. Thanks Lanier Islands!

Lake Lanier has been a perfect place for me to work at for a few years. They have so many beautiful venues to choose from. Great venue

They have an excellent staff, and playing jazzy music with my saxes during a Wedding dinner on the main deck and dance music for the reception on the upperdeck of the Isaland Princess was a real trip! Not only did we have fun, but so did all the boats that surrounded and traveled with us! Thank you Carol!

Blair, Dale and the staff at Lake Lanier Isllands have got to be some of the THE most professional and helpful personnel in the wedding industry. My personal observation of them at this facility is second to none. The venue is great and allows for some very unique and creative photos and video opportunities! Super Venue!!!
