Katie & Scott – July, 2023
The second we walked in the Ballroom, we knew we had found the perfect venue. The grounds are gorgeous and that was the biggest thing we were looking for. The ballroom is stunning and could fit all of our guests. The amenities were plentiful and clean. The space allowed us to do the entire day, start to finish, at one location and that made the day much easier. The Ballroom is a great starting point that let us just add personal touches to make the space ours, without having to add a lot.
We started with our meeting with Christine. She outlined everything in a way that was easy to understand and follow. We were amazed at all the options and what was included with our package. Throughout the process, Christine answered all of our questions and provided the guidance we needed to help set everything up. One of my criteria was to have someone on-site to manage everything. Enter Tiffany. When we met before the wedding, all I had to do was to give her a list of the vendors, contact information, and directions on the room set-up. She took care of it from there. From the time we set foot on the property in the morning until we left that night, Tiffany and Christine managed everything with very little need for input from us. We were able to enjoy our day and know that everything was taken care of. Anything we asked for, we got help with. It allowed us to have a stress-free day so we could just enjoy the party. Nothing went wrong, which never happens, and there is nothing we would change about the day.
The Bridal Suite was comfortable and spacious. The Bridal Party had plenty of room for hair and makeup and to relax during down-time. The hair and makeup artists had all the space, counters, chairs, mirrors-everything they needed. The private bathrooms allowed the whole wedding party to have a space to retreat and relax when we needed it. It was wonderful to have everything right there for whenever we needed something.
We utilized all of the areas around the clubhouse for photos. We took family portraits secluded behind the Grille, so none of the guests could see before the ceremony. We had beautiful views of the lake and flowers everywhere we turned. After the ceremony, we took all of our photos around the lake and the creek. Our photographer found plenty of stunning backdrops, which made our photos unforgettable. Everything was green, lucious, and peaceful-exactly what we were looking for.
Our guests loved looking out onto the lake for the ceremony and it felt like we were in a garden all by ourselves. We loved the walk to the altar. Walking over the bridge and having everyone come into focus was an amazing thing to see. After the ceremony, all of the staff was ready to take care of our guests. Christine whisked us away for a drink and food before the reception started. Our guests could not believe the food! There were so many options and everything everyone had was absolutely delicious. Having fantastic food was very important to us and Chef did not let us down! The appetizer and station options let us customize the menu to our tastes. The stations never ran low and there was plenty of food. The dinner was delicious, too. Everyone complimented and remarked how good the food was. One of the reasons we picked Twin Lakes was that there were both indoor and outdoor spaces for our guests to be during the reception. People loved having the patio as an option and spent a lot of time outside. It worked great with our cigar bar, too. The sunset views over the lake were absolutely stunning. Inside, everyone partied the night away. The bartenders kept the drinks flowing all night. The staff helped with any issue that came up and the guests wanted for nothing. Everything was taken care of and we didn’t worry at all!
