    Lanier Islands Wedding Experience

    We first chose Lake Lanier Islands because of the unparalleled beautiful backdrops! However, there was much more in store to surprise us! They offer several choices of venues for the ceremony and reception, as well as wedding packages to fit in your budget!
    Jacob Walker, the Intimate Weddings & Social Events Catering Sales Manager, went above and beyond to guide us through the detailed planning process, offering solutions for every aspect, along the way. The reception's location, decorations/set up options (all selected to our liking) and the menu were simply fantastic! We were invited to April's Tasting, where they offered samples of food and cocktails to help us choose.
    Also, KUDOS to Joy Garden - Gail Foss - who did a superb job with floral decor at Oliver Pointe! She also suggested a portable decorated arch to be placed at the reception, in case of potential rain! Gail used beautiful fresh roses for the boutonniere and the bride's bouquet!
    Another preferred partner who must be acknowledged is Karma Salon and Spa for hair and makeup. Austin and Kate gladly accommodated us on a Sunday morning! They worked their magic making us feel extraordinarily pretty!
    Last, but not least, The Baking Grounds presented the elaborated and delicious "Popped the Question" cake!
    My daughter's wedding day was flawless thanks to the above mentioned services! Perfection and awesomeness come to mind!
    I highly recommend any of Lake Lanier Islands Weddings Packages!
    They have a group of expert professionals that will "make your memories last a lifetime!"

    5 star review!

    Wow! I had an amazing experience with Jacob Walker and Lanier Island Resort as my wedding venue! I highly recommend this venue because they are profession and can cater to weddings from 50 guest count to 500 guest count. The ceremony sites are beautiful and private, the scenery is lovely from all angles of the lake and the well-maintained golf course with rolling hills and plentiful trees. There is plenty of parking and hotel rooms for guests with options of renting spacious lake houses for larger groups of people and a very nice honeymoon suite for the newlyweds. The hotel ballrooms range in sizes and can fit live a live band, dance floor, plenty of tables, buffet and bars. Also the food provided by the hotel is extremely tasteful, they make beautiful displays and bar tenders were very friendly. Lanier Islands provide wedding packages which are extremely helpful when it comes to organizing the small details, such as chairs and tables and linen table cloths, etc. Jacob Walker (social event planner for the company) is a joy to work with! Jacob has a very friendly positive attitude. He is fast and clear with communication, profession, present during the event to check in multiple times and worked in harmony with my wedding planner. I had a dream 3 day wedding starting with a smooth rehearsal ceremony and dinner Friday, a large outside wedding ceremony and indoor reception Saturday and then a final Sunday breakfast brunch. My guests were very pleased with the accommodations, there were signs and maps to help guide them around the resort, they enjoyed the scenery and loved the pool. My photographer got beautiful pictures with outdoor backgrounds of lake and rolling hills. Overall, I am extremely happy with my experience and give Jacob Walker and Lanier Islands 5 star rating!!!

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!
