    An amazing day.

    The wedding was absolutely amazing, simple as that.

    Pros:

    - Joyce and Scott. They accommodated our every need, from the beginning to the end. I can't possibly say enough nice things about the hosts. I have seen some other reviews that find her a bit "overbearing" and "over your shoulder" and I couldn't disagree more. What she is is THOROUGH. What she is is HELPFUL! She was there at a moment's notice any time we needed help working with a vendor or really with anything at all. And Scott was there the day of setting up chairs, changing the lighting, and helping with anything else that came up.

    - The beauty. This place is just gorgeous, especially this late in the year. The fall foliage over the water is just amazing. We have only received a couple of the pictures from our photographer, but they have already turned out awesome.

    - The space. The tent is huge and can accommodate anything from a small wedding to a massive one. We had almost 200 guests, and still there was plenty of room for the buffet, a large dance floor, and so much more.

    Cons:

    - You will have to do a lot of work. All weddings will require work, so it's not much of a con here and more the expectation. But this is venue is special in that you will need to coordinate all the non-venue aspects of it - the food, alcohol, photographer, DJ, etc. Joyce was incredibly helpful in this process, but it is still certainly a lot of planning!

    Overall, we couldn't possibly say enough nice things about this place and about our big day. We are unbelievably happy with it all and recommend anyone go see it for yourselves!

    Perfect Venue

    I would recommend this venue to anyone who was interested in an outdoor wedding. The venue itself is stunning, the well kept grass leading right into the lake, the gazebo that we got married under, the apple trees throughout the venue and of course the large reception tent. But along with the venue you get the owners, Scott and Joyce. Joyce was amazing to work with in the months up to the wedding. She brought up different ideas that may have been forgotten had she not reminded me and was a person of support when things felt overwhelming. The day of the event was when Scott shone. He was in touch with my "point person" throughout the day asking her questions about what we wanted to do with the lighting and how we would be most comfortable with the tent flaps up or down. The Lakeside was absolutely perfect; I couldn't imagine having had my wedding at any other venue.

    Amazing Venue

    We can’t say enough about Lakeview!! It’s an absolutely beautiful location, the property is gorgeous and very well maintained. Above all else, Scott and Joyce are absolutely amazing!! They worked all day and night to ensure our day was awesome. Unfortunately it rained the day of our wedding, but they were on top of everything and helped change things on a dime. It was a perfect day!! Joyce was also very responsive in the months leading up to our wedding. I highly recommend this venue!!
