General Info
Lakeside Center is an exceptional private residential estate on a private lake, with a fully-appointed, separate, commercial banquet facility on the property. The banquet facility is nearly 4000 sq. ft., with accommodations for up to 300 guests, and overlooks the 3.5 acre lake with its 100' redwood bridge, large over-water gazebo and our famous swan peddle boat. Our extensive gardens and outdoor fountains add to the charm, making this a favorite location for outdoor weddings (the sunshine, chirping birds, and fresh air are all FREE!). A spacious bridal preparation suite in the large English Tudor manor house on-site is the perfect "base of operations" for a bride on her busy wedding day. Lakeside Center provides its wedding guests with the outdoor seating, sound system, and even has, in place, a "back up plan" if it rains! The reception hall offers both outdoor (waterfront) and indoor seating options, has a glitter-lit dance floor , stunning grand piano, stone fireplace, and decorative lighting throughout. When the sun goes down, the romance goes up! Our gardens and terraces come alive with miniature lights. New in 2006: Totally new handicap-accessible restrooms. Lakeside Center features free on-site parking, and exclusive use of the facility for the entire day! *Elegant Indoor / Outdoor Banquet Facility w/ Wedding Ceremony Packages - Full Covered *Translators Available and We Welcome Persons with Disabilities

I suspect that if you have a wedding that is serving alcohol that is when the problems start with Lauri, the owner. My nieces wedding was shut down at 9:30. On a hot summer night in August 2014 no beverages of any sort; pop, water or alcohol were served after 9:30. My brother in law offered to purchase the extended package for another hour and was told NO. Be careful she has that clause that says at the owners discretion. My advice - Stay away from this place. This woman obviously has a split personality and you don't know which one you are going to get until the day of the wedding.

Exceeded expectations

My husband and I had our wedding reception here August 2014. We live in Connecticut and planned our reception with Laurie by phone and email. She made it so easy for us especially since we were not able to visit the venue until we arrived in town the day before our event. She guided us perfectly. We and all of our guests had an extraordinary evening. The decorations were beautiful, the food was so delicious and the service was impeccable. Many of our guests have stated they would love to plan an event at Lakeside. I wouldn't hesitate to host another event at Lakeside and will recommend Lakeside again and again.

Overall

All of the negative reviews are absolutely true...Laurie was very controlling and unorganized. Appetizers ran out way early, Bar closed at 9:30 and completely killed the party when the hall was rented till midnight, very slow bar service and $5 per drink, $400 to take a ride on the swan boat is ridiculous, was 90 degrees outside and she left everyone sit in the hot sun for an extra 25 minutes before the vows started, very bitchy the entire day made everyone feel uncomfortable, threatened to cut people off of drinking before the bar opened. Was one of the worst wedding experiences I've ever seen. I felt sorry for the wedding party and guests! I would NOT RECOMMEND IN A MILLION YEARS to anyone looking for a place/wedding planner. If I could rate this place a -10 I would. WARNING: DO NOT PLAN YOUR WEDDING HERE...If you do you will regret it in the end Guaranteed!!!! Boo to you Laurie, your a mean nasty person for taking advantage of people like that and ruining what is suppose to be a beautiful day!

Overall

Beautiful place but poor service. They say they can accommodate far more than they can. We had 240 people. They said no problem but it was insanely cramped... to an uncomfortable degree. The party also paid a great deal of money for the bar... Which they closed one hour after dinner. More money was provided to keep it open. The party was told no. Everyone left sober and went to a different place. The out of Towners were there like 2 hours. It was ridiculous. If you don't want your special day ruined... Then don't have it here!
