  • I am SO glad I booked Lake House for my wedding. The venue is absolutely beautiful and I had the most amazing ceremony. Even though it rained and we had to move everything inside, it was absolutely perfect. The BEST part about booking Lake House is Lauren - she is so good at her job its scary. The day of the wedding she coordinated everything down to the little details so I had nothing to worry about. She even brought me a drink after the ceremony to calm my nerves. I can't even begin to tell you how valuable this is. I've seen most venues do little to nothing on the day of. I am so grateful for Lauren and her whole team for giving me the wedding I've always dreamed of. I would recommend them to anyone!
