Our wedding was everything we ever wanted!
I couldn't have imagined a more perfect venue that had everything we were looking for. Our wedding was incredible and everything we wanted. Not one thing went wrong. Nothing!!! The staff was excellent! Our guests were so impressed with how fast and efficient the buffet dinner went! Honestly from the start of the day all the way up to midnight, the night was everything my husband and I had hoped for. Things were more than perfect and I could never thank The Shore enough for all that they did. Anna steered us in all the right directions for all our decisions and we are still hearing about how good the food was! Words will never be able to explain our gratitude! I have nothing but amazing things to say! Thank you for making our wedding absolutely amazing.Sent on 04/17/2019

The Perfect Location
We went with this venue as well as vendors from their recommended list of vendors. Everyone worked well together, and I had to do very little to ensure everything went well that night. I found myself moreso enjoying the night, rather than worrying about how everything was going. I am incredibly OCD, and Anna matches my level of OCD and ensures everything is done properly.Sent on 10/16/2019

The Shores of Turtke Creek is one of the best venues in lake county. I can’t say enough good things about the Shores. Anna and her staff run a perfect wedding day. The venue is absolutely beautiful. The ceremony site is is breathtaking. The catering is some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Give Anna a call and book the Shores now before your date gets taken.
