Joanna was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for anyone more helpful and accommodating. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We're still getting calls from family and friends about it being the perfect place.
Amazing and affordable place to have a wedding. Joanna was a big help!! Highly recommend.
I loved Joanna from the first e-mail she sent me. She was extremely casual and friendly but super responsive and helpful with everything from words of advice to cheerful encouragement when the planning process got crazy. And speaking of crazy, when the typical last minute wedding chaos set in and all of my decor and DIY ideas went up in flames, Joanna showed up like a superhero and went right to work as dedicated as if she were a childhood friend. She and her friend immediately sat down and made me a gorgeous bouquet out of the fabric flowers I had only half finished, and she even went and got fresh clippings from the property and rummaged through totes and made simple but beautiful centerpieces out of random jars and vases I had brought. The venue was so beautiful with the new string lights and lanterns that it didn't even matter that none of my plans worked out. Everyone is still talking about how amazing the location was. The value was incredible and I was constantly blown away at all the little extras that were included without asking. Everyone loved it so much that our group of friends wants to rent it out for a yearly reunion to relive the day. We stayed overnight in the campers and when we were done cleaning up and I started to pull away I just started crying because it felt like leaving home. The day, the place, and Joanna herself will be permanently etched into the memories of truly the best day of my life, and I couldn't be happier about it. If you want an experience that is relaxed, personal, and as easy as planning a wedding can be, I cannot recommend Joanna or her venue highly enough.
This was the perfect venue for my rustic, country wedding in October. It was very affordable as well as beautiful. Joanna was absolutely amazing to work with. She is very prompt and responded to all of my questions and concerns right away. As fate would have it, hurricane Joaquin decided to make his presence known just in time for my wedding weekend. Unfortunately, we had to move the ceremony (which was to be held out on the dock over the lake) to under the pavilion where the reception was to be held. I was panicking and concerned with how it would all work out under the same space, but it turned out beautifully, just as Joanna had assured me. She even ordered and put together all of the flowers, which were gorgeous. They turned out exactly how I had imagined them! All of my other vendors even commented on how pleasant Joanna was to work with during the whole process. I would definitely recommend this venue!
Our wedding reception was perfect. Joanna did an amazing job setting up the venue so that it worked for us. She was always easy to get in touch with, very professional, and super nice. She goes out of her way to make sure that you get the wedding you want for the budget you can afford. Our guests had a terrific time and kept complimenting the lake and the pavilion. I would definitely recommend renting the chandelier. It makes an already amazing view look that much more stunning.
My husband and I loved the lake pavillion. We could not have asked for a better wedding venue. It is situated on a beautiful private lake in a cute southern town of farmville. Neither one of us is from the area but we fell in love with the quaint little town. The owner of the venue, Joanna went above and beyond to make our wedding day the way i always dreamed it to be. She is very personable and sincerely interested in making your day special. She was always there for us whenever we needed something or had any question. She is very creative and arty so she even offered to take our engagement photos and help us with flower arrangements. Unlike so many other wedding vendors we met, she actively participated in the wedding planning process and gave us so many helpful tips. Her venue is also so budget friendly. It offers rustic beauty as it is set outdoors. It fit my diy wedding ideas so perfectly. We would recommand this place to anyone who is looking for a affordable and rustic chic wedding venue.
The owner and coordinator's name is Joanna Baldwin and she was fantastic! She also did our photography and while we have not yet received all of the pictures, so far they are gorgeous! The venue is very reasonably priced and we had it for the whole day the Friday before and the whole day on Saturday. (The photography packages are also very reasonable.) Joanna was very attentive to details. We were doing our own bouquets and centerpieces and she noticed that some of our yellow gerbera daisies had been destroyed (either in transit or before we even picked them up) and she went out and purchased new ones - no charge - before I was even aware that the flowers were injured. The venue itself is stunning but I really can't say enough about the excellent service that we received at every turn.
Beautiful place, perfect for a wedding! Owner is very pleasant and helpful. I recommend this venue! It's great!
This location is absolutely beautiful & the owners are so helpful! I highly recommend this location to anyone who wants to have a gorgeous outdoor wedding!!
The Carolyn Baldwin Lake Pavilion is a fabulous venue for your wedding, graduation party, family gathering, or any event! The owners are friendly, eager to assist, and willing to customize the venue to suit your personal style and needs. Overall, A++! =)
We had an amazing experience with Carolyn Baldwin Lake Pavilion for our wedding on 6/12/10. From the moment I stepped out of the car, it was love at first site. We had been looking for an outdoor wedding site that had a covered option for the reception, and just in case it rained! This site is perfect. A lake, a fountain, a dock, a beautiful pavilion... who could ask for more? As fate would have it, it POURED for the hour of our wedding. It was perfect, though, that the sides were hung on the pavilion and we got married on the dance floor with our friends surrounding us. Then the sun came out and we danced into the night in full view of the lake. What a gorgeous setting for any special day. Joanna was a complete expert with assisting with set up and making sure all our needs were met. It was truly a magical experience.
