A waterfront view in Bowdon, Georgia, Wood Lakeside Events is an unsuspected quiet setting behind layers of planted pine trees. Through the charming pine trees in this outdoorsy setting, sits a serene lake. If you’re hoping to keep your wedding outdoors and include a waterfront scene, Wood Lakeside Events is a foolproof choice. The lake is just a few steps away from the barn, where you will be saying “I do.” Couples can take in the beautiful water before they dance the night away.

Facilities And Capacity
Overlooking the lake on the dock is the ideal spot for your ceremony. From there, guests can move into the barn for a private and rustic reception. Additionally, there is a bridal suite located within the barn that includes a living room, dressing room, and full bathroom. The bridal suite has its own fully covered deck that overlooks the lake. Bridal parties can enjoy the peaceful water as they get ready for the big day. The Groom’s cabin, also by the lake, includes a kitchenette, full bathroom, dressing room, and living area. When everyone is ready, head out to the dock that sits on the lake for some picturesque moments. Each part of the venue feels as if from a fairytale. The rustic wood accents of the barn, the cabin, and the dock tie it all together. This venue can host up to 250 people.

Services Offered
Wood Lakeside Events can provide lighting, tables, chairs, altars, drapery, linens, centerpieces, aisle runners, and more. The staff is ready to assist you if anything goes wrong, but works to make sure that nothing will. In the chance of rain or bad weather, the ceremony will be moved inside the barn. But if the sun shines again, the staff will work to set up everything in time.

Other Facilities
Wood Lakeside Events offers a host of additional facilities. Those include:

  • Rehearsal Dinner — a special offer
  • Pet friendly
  • Outside vendors
  • Parking
  • Veteran-owned
  • Woman-owned

    BEST wedding venue EVER!

    Wood Lakeside Events was all I could have dreamt it to be! From the location to the responsiveness of the owners, Dean and Margaret, it was an AMAZING experience. My favorite part, everything it includes for the price. We had a live band and were happy to have the additional outdoor space for the guests who found it a little too loud! and OH THE PINE FORREST, truly makes for the most beautiful bridal photos. Margaret is attentive and there for your every needs! 10/10 would recommend.

    Kristi

    Thank you SO much for your very kind words. We are elated that your wedding day was exactly what you pictured it would be. We loved having you host your wedding at WLE. Meeting your family and friends was awesome, some of them were definitely characters. Your decor and day was beautiful. The band was amazing and we were so excited that you finally got to get hitched on the dock. Congrats to the Presley's!
