I had the most enchanting wedding at Tavares Pavilion on the Lake! The venue's classy and beautiful ambiance was the perfect backdrop for our intimate celebration with 90 guests. Amy, who helped plan every detail, was exceptional, and Lee ensured the day ran seamlessly. I highly recommend Tavares Pavilion – a 100% perfect choice for a memorable wedding experience!
