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

A dream come true
I had never heard of Wood Lakeside Events and I did not know anyone who had ever been there. My mom, husband, and I absolutely fell in love with the venue when we went to tour. Everything is perfect. The lake and dock made for a beautiful view during the ceremony. My husband and his groomsmen enjoyed the cabin and fishing before the wedding. My bridesmaids and I had plenty of room in our bridal suit. I love that the bridal suit overlooks the entire venue. I could watch my wedding day unfold before my eyes. The barn is detailed and very unique. If you don’t have many decorations, that is okay because the venue is absolutely gorgeous without any additional decorations. I heard several guests complement about the venue. Margaret is very personal and down to earth. She helped with our day in multiple ways and made it everything Jonathon and I could have imagined it would be. Her number one priority was my happiness! I am so thankful I went to tour Wood Lakeside Events. It truly is a venue unlike any other!!Sent on 09/11/2019
Wood Lakeside Events's reply:Thank you Melissa! We were honored to have you and Jonathon choose us for your wedding venue. We love doing what we do here and are so excited to know it was all you imagined it would be. Thank you for such kind words. We cannot wait to follow you as your lives grow.
