I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day!

My dream wedding came true at the Esplanade Lakes!! My fiancé and I decided to check out this venue the winter before our anticipated wedding date. On a very snowy evening, we met up with Janet at the venue and instantly fell in love with it! From day one, Janet was beyond helpful with orchestrating all the details of the wedding! She was always so eager to please us and to ensure our wedding day was the BEST DAY EVER... (which it was)! Any worry or question I had, Janet was there!

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!!!

10/10 highly recommend!

My husband Bryan Luna, parents and I couldn’t be more thankful to have had the chance to meet and work with Janet Lobo as we planned our 320 person wedding reception at Esplanade Lakes. We met Janet upon touring the venue in a July 2018. We immediately clicked and felt we could trust her. From that point on, were in constant communication up until the big day on September 7, 2019. We met several times and she was willing to text/email/call at any point throughout the 14+ months. Janet really understood the emotion and stress that can be brought on by planning a large event. She made us feel so comfortable each and every step of the way!

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!!
