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

Can't go wrong with this venue!
Aly and her team are AMAZING! They make dreams happen! They are very flexible and have tons of décor options to choose from, you can even give them your own stuff and they set up everything for you just the way you want it! Aly knows her stuff! She kept everything flowing smoothly the day of the rehearsal and the wedding. Let's talk about the property, IT IS BEAUTIFUL! My pictures are perfect because it's the perfect setting with the lake in the background. The food is EXCELLENT, I had people commenting on it all night. Everything was cooked perfectly with tons of flavor. I didn't talk to one person who wasn't satisfied with the night. I cannot say enough good things about how well they did with my wedding.Sent on 08/20/2019

Professional, Courteous and Delicious!
We had a small wedding reception at Williams On The Lake and were most pleased. The courtesy of all the people involved in the planning and the tastings and finally, the event itself were superb. Add in the delicious chicken and all the sides, and it was a great place for a great celebration. Our thanks to them!Sent on 08/23/2019
