    Paige and her team at The Lake House were exceptional! We had a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception at The Lake House and each event was handled with timely communication responsiveness, consistent helpfulness and excellent customer service. I highly recommend Paige and the entire team, which compliment the naturally beautiful setting, for your wedding needs. Well done!!

    we had our daughter's rehearsal dinner in the tent at the Lakehouse. The Lakehouse hired Paige Colvin, a new events planner. Paige was great to work with and responded quickly to all of my emails. She was a pleasure to work with prior to the event. The service during the event was also great as well as the food. We where very happy with all and everyone had a great evening. Thank you Paige & Lakehouse for a memorable evening.
