    What a great place to celebrate!

    This venue is gorgeous with so many options for the rehearsel, wedding, and reception setting. Kara and Jason are so helpful and easy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend and experience with Lakeside Occasions!

    Perfect Day

    Wedding date: Nov 3, 2018
    Kara will absolutely make your day perfect! She will usually respond within minutes and all the changes they have made this past year were great for what we needed. Our guests still rave about how cute the barn was and how it felt so homey! Kara makes great suggestions and I used pretty much all of them. We love her and the venue! Thanks Kara!

    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

    This venue is positively gorgeous and Kara is a great. There are lots of areas on the grounds that are great for pictures and the gazebo is perfect for an outdoor ceremony. The deciding factor for us that set this place apart from other barn venues was the adorable 50s diner they have. Our 54 Bel Air is a big part of our lives and this was the perfect setting for us. There was one hiccup with our contract that we weren't very happy with, but everything turned out in the end and we had a beautiful ceremony and reception.

I’m still working to streamline the booking/planning process to make it completely digital, and with that transition from paper to computer, unfortunately comes a few hiccups. I sincerely hope it didn’t put a damper on your day! You were a beautiful bride! Best wishes from Lakeside Occasions! ❤️
