Facilities and Capacity
Begin your day in the Wedding Suite, a chic space equipped with vanities and everything needed for those last-minute preparations, including a full-length mirror and modern lounge furniture. Take a breather before you walk down the aisle. The Lakeview Conservatory offer a luxurious choice for your ceremony or reception. The 360-degree floor-to-ceiling windows provide the perfect backdrop to exchange your vows. The large space can host up to 600 guests for the ceremony. For a reception, 400 guests can be hosted for a seated meal. While the space is large, the atmosphere is one of intimacy, and guests can mingle and chat. If you would prefer an outdoor event, The Grove is the perfect location. The space, surrounded by lush woodland and the scenic lake, is ideal for a marquee-style celebration. With the same capacity as the Conservatory, your wedding is bound to be exceptional. The Piano Lounge and Grand Lounge are the perfect locations for welcome drinks or cocktail reception.
The staff are well versed in hosting and planning wedding celebrations and will do everything to ensure that your day runs without a hitch. Contact the team today for more information about Lakes at Lacey.

I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day!
Finally the day is here! We decided to have both the ceremony and the reception at the Esplanade Lakes. With the pristine frosted lake as a backdrop, the ceremony was beyond breathtaking!! It was like walking into a dream! The staff quickly turned the room around from ceremony to reception in about a hour and we were ready to get the party started! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was spectacular, and the staff was extraordinary!! I did not have a single worry the day of my wedding because of the outpouring of care and professionalism demonstrated by Janet and her staff! I would absolutely recommend this venue for any wedding, for any season!!!
Double Tree by Hilton, can I give it 10 stars?
10/10 highly recommend!
Janet is such a warm-hearted person. Her vast knowledge and wisdom were so helpful in deciding each and every detail ranging from the menu, decor, timing/coordination, etc. She was respectful of any personal requests/preferences and able to answer thousands of questions and/or provide her opinion and resources/recommendations. She communicated and worked with all of the other vendors, which made the final month of coordination a breeze.
We are so thankful for the incredible wedding we had at Esplanade Lakes and we owe it all to Janet Lobo and her staff! The food was delicious (filet minion, stuffed chicken breast, vegetable wellington), the event ran smoothly from 5:30 – 12:00am. Everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful!!
