My Dream Venue
I could not have dreamt of a more perfect wedding venue than the Tavares Pavilion on the Lake. The location, view, amenities, and staff were beyond what we hoped for. The grand double staircase with the backdrop of the gorgeous water of Lake Dora made for the most beautiful and elegant setting. The staff at the Pavilion was responsive, flexible, accommodating, and friendly. We had a date change, a significant guest count decrease, and many logistical changes even through the last week of planning. I am thankful to the staff at the Pavilion (shoutout to Amy and Michael) for their flexibility and hospitality. I received countless compliments from guests regarding the elegance of the venue and the beautiful view. I highly recommend booking the Tavares Pavilion on the Lake for your wedding!Sent on 10/03/2020

Beautiful lakefront venue!
This was the perfect venue for my wedding! Aside from it being breathtakingly gorgeous, the staff was very friendly, helpful and responsive. They made the planning process very easy! Also, the venue is perfect for couples who want the ceremony and reception at the same location (our ceremony was downstairs, cocktail hour on the pier and reception upstairs). Highly recommend!Sent on 12/07/2020
