She knows how to coordinate the expected and the unexpected with such ease that any couple would be lucky to have her and Williams on the lake host their wedding.
The service, the food , the big and little details, they were all exceptional.
My husband and I cannot thank Aly and Williams on the lake enough. It was a masterpiece of event!

Ally made sure everything was perfect!
From the moment I walked in the door, I absolutely fell in love with the venue. It was everything I was looking for with a beautiful deck, beautiful views and elegant interior.
Initially our coordinator was a little lax, not taking notes at our meetings and having a difficult time getting a hold of us. I plan events for work so I made sure to give her detailed notes and step by step instructions for every piece of my reception. The day before my wedding our coordinator got sick and was unable to coordinate my wedding. That's when Ally stepped up. Ally was an absolute godsend.
Ally literally made everything perfect down to how I wanted the napkins folded. She was so professional and her staff was incredible. We had several family members who were handicapped and dinner was buffet style. Ally and her staff made sure to help our handicapped relatives get their food and drinks.
Everyone raved (and are still raving) about the amazing food they had too. Saying it was delicious is an understatement!!! Everyone also loved that the staff walked around with appetizers during cocktail hour. Actually, the food was so good at Williams on the Lake that my husband and I made sure to have all of our photos done so we could enjoy cocktail hour, to visit with our guests but mainly for the amazing appetizers!!
I am so thankful for Ally and the staff at Williams on the Lake for making our wedding reception perfect.Sent on 11/06/2019

Wonderful venue and staff
My husband and I got married at Williams on the Lake in August and could not be happier with how everything turned out. We’ve received many compliments on the venue and food. When I started looking for a venue I was looking for somewhere that we could have an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. The overall package from Williams on the Lake was the best of the venues I had gone to see and they had everything I was looking for. The outdoor deck was wonderful as guests could go in and out during cocktail hour and the reception. The staff is very kind and accommodating. Overall we are very satisfied and would highly recommend Williams on the Lake.Sent on 09/26/2019

Beautiful modern facility with the water right there. Many very scenic backgrounds are available for excellent photo opportunities. Staff is very friendly and eager to please. Have facility for outdoor or indoor ceremony right there. An excellent venue for wedding or party with great food.
Williams on the Lake is a fantastic venue with an extraordinary staff. Cover Girlz gets to see these fine folks many times through the year. Aly, Jen, Rose and Mark all make you feel part of the Williams Family.
