Words Simply Don’t Do It Justice

When it came time to look at venues after getting engaged Lakeview was one of the first places we toured and immediately knew it was the place for us. No other venues we looked at compared. Lakeview Pavilion is absolutely stunning. When the day finally came, everything fell into place and it was perfect.

Top-Notch Wedding Venue!

My husband, Victor, and I couldn’t have DREAMED of a better venue for our wedding than Lakeview Pavilion – not only were we ecstatic about Lakeview prior to our wedding, but it exceeded our already high expectations when our wedding day ran flawlessly!!! We had not one guest who didn’t exclaim to us how much they enjoyed our wedding and how impressed they were with the venue. From the aesthetics, to the ‘concierge’ treatment the event coordinators gave us and our wedding party, to the fine-dining service experience they provided to our guests – Lakeview Pavilion thought of every little detail. I want to give a special shoutout to Marketing & Event Coordinator Michelle, for her exceptional attentiveness to me and Victor during our whole wedding, and for her ability to keep all logistics running smoothly. She was also very creative with ideas for our professional photos and making sure we looked our best in them! I also want to thank Patty, the Event Manager, for the on-point management of our wedding day, and particularly for her miraculous fixing of my dress bustle before our reception when my bridal party could not get it to work! And of course, thank you to Wedding & Event Planner, Terry , for working with Victor and me for a whole 2.5 YEARS from the time we chose Lakeview Pavilion as our venue – through the pandemic/pushing out our wedding date, etc. – she helped put together the beautiful elements of our wedding and was ALWAYS available to answer any and every question we had throughout the pre-planning process. Lastly, thank you to the owners and entire staff for their caring, flexibility, and cooperation with us and our contract when the pandemic ‘hit’ and we needed/preferred to postpone our wedding date to 1 year later! I’ve heard about the way some other wedding venues handled the pandemic and it makes me even more appreciative of the very positive way in which Lakeview Pavilion handled it for their couples. In summary, I HIGHLY recommend Lakeview Pavilion for your wedding!

Lakeview is THE BEST venue and I could not praise them enough!

I fell in love with this venue online and fell even more in love with it after our first visit. Lakeview Pavilion is even prettier in person (especially the chandeliers!) We got engaged and booked our wedding before Covid hit but throughout the year, Anastasia kept in close touch with us providing updates and helping us come up with a plan b for a micro wedding since restrictions were still pretty strict and we had no intentions of postponing. We were thrilled with the new updates and were excited to have 100 guests with certain covid protocols. With each meeting up until the wedding, I had no doubts that Anastasia and her staff would have any issues day of; they had a detailed plan for everything and were extremely organized. I had all the confidence everything would go as planned. Our ceremony was in the Lakeside Ballroom then guests were ushered into the Lakeview Ballroom for the seated cocktail hour and reception. We were lucky enough to have Michelle and Patty as our wedding coordinators; they were truly the dream team. The rehearsal and wedding were literally seamless and perfect. My wedding expectations were far exceeded and I cannot stop smiling thinking back on the day. Our guests are still talking about how delicious all the food was and how quick, efficient, and friendly the drink attendants and staff were. If you are planning a wedding and want a beautiful, classic, elegant venue but also want to have the option for a beautiful outside ceremony/photo opp, look no further! Lakeview is THE BEST venue and I could not praise them enough. I hope to be able to attend another event here in the future!

Exquisite Venue with Scrumptious Food & Dedicated Staff

We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at LVP. Every detail was taken care of. The food was amazing. The venue is beautiful and everyone was a pleasure to work with. I am a pandemic bride & the last year has not been easy dealing with postponements, re-bookings, & all of the other restrictions. LVP was with us every step of the way to make sure that our event went off without a hitch. I could not recommend them more highly!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Beyond Perfect!

When looking for a reception venue, my husband and I were looking for a location that was budget friendly as well as a space that would comfortably accommodate our 200 guests. Lakeview Pavilion was that and more! The Lakeview Ballroom was perfect! Its beautiful floor to ceiling windows, sparkling chandeliers and dark floor allowed for an extravagant view and left plenty of space for dancing that night. The contrast of the dark floor with the rest of the room being modernly white allowed us to customize the space to match our vision. Having an emerald green and slate blue theme, the stage in front of the windows added to the simple elegant focal point.The staff was beyond helpful from the initial visit all the way up until the day of! That day, our assistant was exceptional at making sure my husband and I, as well as our immediate family, had everything we needed and more. The food was delicious and our guest raved about the whole-table-at-once meal presentation! To top off the night, we included a signature Lakeview special, the donut umbrellas. They were definitely a hit and something we will forever remember! We cannot thank Michelle and the staff at Lakeview enough for hosting our dream reception!

It was the most beautiful wedding I could have imagined

We held our wedding at Lakeview on 11/27/21. I dreamed of getting married at this elegant venue since I was a kid. It was the most beautiful wedding I could have imagined. The staff at Lakeview made sure they understood my vision and supported me throughout all planning. On the day of, it was such a busy day and I had my own staff member assigned to me to make sure I had everything I needed throughout the whole night. It was absolutely perfect from the set up, communication and food. I cannot say enough great things about the staff at Lakeview who made my dreams come true!

Fairytale Wedding

Where do I even begin! This was my dream venue and from start to finish you are treated and made to feel like a princess! From the beautiful venue itself to the amazing staff! The owners are so sweet & accommodating & literally do anything & everything for you! Michelle on the day of was AMAZING and I can’t thank her enough for all she did! And The manager Patty even helped bustle my dress for me which was so sweet & helpful. They really do go above & beyond for you. The food was unreal! So delicious! From the hors d’oeuvres, to the meals, and of course to the donut umbrellas, which everyone was obsessed with! The venue itself is just breathtaking but if you’re thinking of getting the Swarovski crystal backdrop, DO IT! Our friends & family along with my husband & I were in awe of it! It is beyond beautiful and was the perfect addition to our wedding. Also dancing in the clouds was literally a dream of mine I really got to experience and that was SO amazing. Everyone keeps telling us this was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and I can’t thank Lakeview & the staff for making that happen! My husband & I really had a fairytale of a day

Our Day Couldn’t Have Been More Perfect

I don’t even know where to begin with my review for Lakeview Pavilion and their staff! From the start, Terry and the team were so approachable, helpful, and responsive, making the wedding planning process so enjoyable and providing great suggestions along the way. Natalia and Anastasia were such a pleasure to work with and were so gracious in allowing us to postpone after Covid. Knowing how many weddings they plan, it was so touching to feel how genuinely excited they were when our day was finally able to happen as we originally planned. To say that my wedding day was absolutely perfect and beyond anything I ever could have dreamed of is an understatement. With such an exhausting, uncertain year before us and with so many obstacles thrown our way, our day went as smooth as I could have ever imagined thanks to their incredible team. From the gorgeous venue and grounds, the extra attention given to decor details and the staff, there aren’t enough great things that I can say. Michelle and Patty were amazing on the day of and their attentiveness was unparalleled. They walked me through every step of the way and even fed me the delicious appetizers that I certainly would have gotten all over my dress if left to myself! I am blown away by the service we received and I truly left feeling as though I had become part of the family that they so evidently have created together. The food was exceptional and tasted exactly like it had during our tasting. Every guest made a point of saying it was the best wedding food they have ever had – and I couldn’t agree more. The room was picture perfect and even more beautiful on our day than I had envisioned. Our day couldn’t have been more perfect and I have everyone at Lakeview to thank for that!

There is Literally Nothing They Forget

This was absolutely the best place to get married… From the meticulous details that the staff had laid out from day one all the way through the last minute before we left. The entire team made you feel part of the family. The staff at Lakeview Pavilion really makes sure that this is YOUR day… There is literally nothing they forget. From drinks service to appetizers in the bridal suite during first look to keep the bridal party comfortable and happy to having Michelle and Terry make sure your future husband‘s footprint is off of your dress seconds before you walk down the aisle. This team was everything a bride could dream of and more! There is absolutely no reason that you should hesitate at making this the spot for you and your significant other on your big day. LOVE LOVE Lakeview !

The Dream Team That We Now Consider Family

Where do I begin?! From the five-star service, to the amazing food, to the gorgeous/pristinely manicured property, to the dream team that we now consider family…it was all PERFECT!! The minute my husband and I walked into LVP we knew right away this was the venue we wanted. We put a deposit down that day. Pre-Covid, we were able to attend the food tasting event in November with other couples, and it was the perfect opportunity for us to meet the entire staff, sample the different entrees/apps/desserts, see the different table set up variations, enhancements offerings and more. It gave us a glimpse into what our guests would experience on our wedding day. Flash forward to 2020: we had to move our wedding date 3 times due to the pandemic. It was extremely overwhelming to say the least. But Natalia, Anastasia and Terry were truly the dream team to work with. They we very patient, kept us up to date on all the changes as they happened and worked with us to ensure our new date would be just as perfect if not better than we originally planned. On our wedding day July 23rd, 2021, it was truly a dream come true. Michelle and Patty made us feel like royalty, catering to our every need or request and the energy brought by the entire team to our big day made us feel so incredibly special. We loved everything about LVP that we just booked our baby shower in the Lakeside Ballroom in Spring of 2022. (because I absolutely jumped at the opportunity to hold another event with them)! Going on five months since our wedding day and our guests are STILL raving about our wedding :), many saying it’s one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to. Working with LVP was hands down the best decision we’ve ever made and we’re beyond thrilled to have our paths cross once again.
