    Could not be a better Wedding Venue

    I just got married here in early November during the Pandemic. The entire experience from the moment we booked the venue to the end of our wedding was fantastic. The staff are top notch and incredibly helpful. We loved that they were honest and real. There were no games or gimmicks or hidden costs at The Lakeview. Gonia and Yvonne were awesome and we had countless guests remark on how professional and friendly the staff as a whole were. The venue itself is easy to get to and located in a perfect spot. It was a perfect wedding, regardless of COVID rules.

    Amazing venue! Very accommodating staffs

    We got married here in October! Best decision to have our wedding here!
    Ever since I got engaged, I’ve been looking at Lakeview by Carmen’s as my top choice if our wedding were to happen here in Canada. When COVID pandemic happened, we knew that going overseas was going to be a challenge, so we opted to holding it here. And it all worked out, thanks to Lakeview by Carmen’s!
    My husband and I could not have picked a better place to have our wedding! We had the best wedding ever and we can’t thank the Lakeview by Carmen’s enough for all of their help along the way!
    From the first visit to the end of our wedding event, all of the staff there were amazing and super helpful with everything.
    Our special thanks to Yvonne(our wedding coordinator) and Gonia (our Maître d’), who always made sure that we had everything we needed and were very attentive to all the details and to all our needs.
    They were very accommodating as well and didn’t let any of us stress out on anything.
    They took care of everything for us and made sure the day ran smoothly!
    It is such a beautiful venue inside and out! We absolutely love it there and are so thankful to everyone who made our wedding day extra special!!!

    Perfection by the water

    I was in awe as soon as I went for my first appointment. We had both our ceremony and reception here. The ballroom overlooks the water allowing lots of natural light. All the food was delicious and everybody was well fed. The staff was friendly. Everything was perfect, even the weather! My Aunt caught a pic of the Toronto skyline.
