    Lakeside occasions offered us more than we could have ever imagined for our wedding. The facility was amazing with the option to do the wedding outside or inside. Very easy to work with and always answered our questions. Made our wedding day very special and memorable. Highly recommend their services :)

    My husband and I loved everything about Lakeside Occasions. Kara was very accommodating when it came to us visiting the venue multiple times before the wedding. My husband was more than excited to learn that the barn was fully air conditioned so that he could get down on the dance floor without breaking a sweat! Kara and her husband were ready to help with whatever we needed throughout the whole process. The rustic barn with our elegant decor was exactly what we wanted for our special day! We had a beautiful day that was perfect for our guest to eat and dance inside the barn but also relax and mingle outside by the new fire place and grain bin bar. Everything was perfect!

    They are very friendly and very professional. They went above and beyond for us they even helped with little things during reception that they didnt have too but did. Our guests gave us so many compliments about the beautiful barn and staff. If want a rustic wedding I definitely would recommend lakeside occasions. They were awesome! It's such a beautiful place

    This venue is a gem! We were in love with it from the first time we took a tour. We had been looking at other venues, but when we first stepped into the barn, we both knew Lakeside Occasions was the perfect place for our wedding and the search was over!

    Lakeside occasions is the most beautiful venue if you are looking for a barn for your wedding! It has so many beautiful spots for pictures and was just the most perfect place for our wedding. Kara was wonderful to work with and made our planning so easy every step of the way. Our guests were as obsessed with it as we were!

    Kara was great to work with all around. She was very responsive even when she was busy which was amazing and unheard of. One major suggestion, make sure you have everything in writing and a deposit in when you make a decision. We were said that we were going to be under a previous contract, but was then told we were under a new one after the new year. Had a to pay a few extra bucks in the end. The venue was beautiful and intimate. We had a blast all-together.

    Lakeside Occasions's reply:

    Thank you, Joy! We're so happy for you and Isaiah... such a sweet couple! I apologize for the contract updates. I think the only change that applied here was the charge for using our sound system, which takes time and planning for my hubby to set up for couples, so I feel it's only fair that he's compensated for his time. Hope you can understand! Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review! We enjoyed having you!

    If you want a laid back quiet country feel that is still able to be customized to your liking then please check out this place. It’s so charming and if you go with Emma’s Cafe you won’t go wrong with having comfort food at your wedding!!

    Beautiful venue! Everybody loved it! Silo dressing room for bride and bridesmaids was a tight fight but they have it decorated beautifully. Also, guests complained that food crumbs and things from the second floor dropped through the wood cracks onto their tables during dinner. The cop that was there for 4 hours was also out looking in everyone's car for hard liquor for half of the time we paid him instead of watching and helping out inside. Guest were annoyed and we would of rather of had him by the bar and gift table instead of invading people's private property. Over all we had a pretty good time though and were happy with everything! :)

    Thank you, Brooke for leaving your honest feedback! I hope you're enjoying married life! In regards to the security officer... most couples prefer that they stay out of sight, because they worry that his presence might be intimidating to guests. I sincerely apologize if he was looking in cars, but he may have had reason to suspect that some guests were bringing in alcohol, which is not allowed due to liability reasons. I hope these issues didn't overshadow your day! Thanks so much for choosing Lakeside Occasions!
