The best day ever!
The perfect day
Great view and food
Perfect wedding venue
Worth Every Penny
Through the venue, we were able to book our DJ, cake, decor, food, and drinks. It made wedding planning so easy! They had easy to follow deadlines and paperwork that made decision making simple and stress-free.
The night of our rehearsal, we dropped off everything we wanted set up and told our maitre d exactly where we wanted it. They did a great job at setting it all up for us, making our wedding morning incredible stress-free. The DJ was fantastic and played all of our requests. We got so many compliments on the food and the decor as well!
Only two small things went wrong, which with such a big event is a win in my book. A lot of staff changes happened over the pandemic, meaning that our coordinator changed quite often. We were not informed of these changes, so when I would email to ask questions, I would not receive a response. I didn't know it at the time, but it was because that person did not work there any more! That happened several times, but we ended up with Alessia as our coordinator and could not have been happier about that. The second is that the reception ended very abruptly. After the last song (which we didn't know was the last song) the music just ended and the lights immediately came on. Not a big deal, but was jarring. I would just recommend asking the coordinator or DJ to announce the last song to avoid this.
Overall, we are incredibly happy with our experience.
Amazing venue with an even better view!
Everything was amazing. Our Maître D’ was Gonia and she was absolutely amazing. So organizer and an absolute pleasure to work with. The night went off with no issues even though as the bride I was running behind.
The food was amazing. We had the Caesar salad, penne a la vodka, beef medallion, and a peach crumble. Our late night buffet was pizza and our wedding cake. Everything was delicious and our guests ate everything.
We chose to use the in house DJ; the process for sending our music list over was super easy and coordination was on point all night with our MC.
A huge thanks to Charlie, Alessia and Gonia for helping me have the wedding of my dreams planned in less than 6 weeks!!!
One major upside to picking The Lakeview as a vendor is that the package included so many different things, including but not limited to: food, cake, some decor items, a honeymoon suite, a wedding coordinator, a maitre-d, etc. This made the overall planning a lot easier as we weren't juggling a ton of different vendors.
Beautiful and Elegant
A wonderful venue!
Not only were they SUPER flexible with our package when restrictions changed our plans, they reassured us that no matter what we'd have an amazing day. Turns out, they were right.
To give you an idea, our New Year's Eve wedding had the following provincially mandated restrictions:
-the reception had to be seated with the exception of first dances
-no going to the bar for drinks
-we needed to be out of the venue by 11pm
Sounds like a recipe for a pretty disappointing NYE party right? Wrong! The Lakeview did everything they possibly could to accommodate us and ensure we had the best night. They gave us table service, which turned out to be amazing. Our guests have told us how incredible and quick the service was , saying they never had to wait to order drinks because the staff came around so often to take orders.
After the reception ended at 11pm my husband and I, along with several of our guests went outside and rang in the new year complete with music, fireworks and the lake as our backdrop. I truly would not change a thing if given the choice.
The location is beautiful. the space is elegant, the food is DELICIOUS and the staff are simply the best I've encountered (and that's saying a lot as I've been to many weddings over the years as a wedding photographer)
Their attention to detail and safety made our day as stress free as you can get.
We can't thank the Lakeview enough for everything they did. If you are hesitant to book - don't put your life on hold. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, take the plunge and marry the love of your life..and do it with the best in the business - The Lakeview!!
Our dream wedding!
