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:

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.Sent on 04/29/2021

Wood Lakeside Events was beyond the perfect venue for our wedding! Everything here was absolutely everything we wanted in a venue. There’s a beautiful bridal room up top that myself and the girls were able to get ready in the day of the wedding and a cabin on the lake for the men to get ready in. The men had a blast fishing just hours before we said I do! Margaret was such a blessing throughout this entire experience. From the day we met her at the venue until the wedding and after she has been there every step of the way. We even showed up a few months into our engagement for pictures at the venue and our original photographer did not show. Margaret took time out of her day to snap a few pictures of us around the venue that day for us since we were there and all dressed and ready for pictures! She helped me through any questions that we had during planning and was absolutely amazing and helpful in every way! When it came to the day of the wedding she was right there every step of the way. She was going around helping set up, making sure everything was beautiful and making sure that myself and my husband were calm, relaxed, and had everything we needed. Our guests were wowed with how beautiful the venue was and we had multiple people compliment about how much they just loved the atmosphere here and how amazing it was! Margaret’s boys who help out the day of the wedding did phenomenal assisting guest to and from the parking lot on golf carts and just helped all around the day of and were great! The woods on the far side of the lake make the most amazing and breath taking pictures! Our guests really enjoyed having the corn hole games and giant Jenga set up during the wedding which provided other entertainment while the bridal party was taking pictures. These small details that are thought about here are some of the things we just loved as well as our guest! Just all around this venue and Margaret provided us everything and more that we ever could have imagined for our special day! Wood Lakeside and Margaret will always hold a special place in our hearts and if you are wanting a beautiful venue for your wedding or whatever the occasion may be this definitely is your place!!Sent on 01/14/2020

I am a little late with my review, but could not let the opportunity go by without writing one!
Probably not enough space to talk about this amazing couple and their amazing venue. Margaret and Dean Wood own Wood Lakeside and are the epitome of professional, accommodating and most importantly patient!
This location is truly a “diamond in the rough” and pictures simply do not do it justice. The property is beautiful from the entrance gate to the swans in the lake. Our first meeting, Margaret immediately put my mind at ease and over the next year made my vision of the perfect day a reality.
No need to worry about time spent researching food, flowers, music, etc. she has a network of vendors many of whom I ended up hiring without the headache of trying to find them myself. Every phone call, and text message was answered without delay and every effort was made to meet with me and my husband even my folks to make sure the finest details were taken care of.
I can not recommend this venue enough and words are not adequate to express my appreciation to Margaret and Dean for making our special day EVERYTHING we wanted.
