Lakeside Gardens schedules events year round. As you wind down Lakeside Gardens magnificent drive, a stunning view of lakes and fountains, meandering paths, charming wooden bridges, flower gardens and gazebos greets you. Swans glide across the water. A waterfall gently cascades into the lake. It’s a place of magical beauty.
At the bottom of the drive sits the Grande Estate, a welcoming wedding facility that accommodates 300 guests for an hors`d oeuvre buffet reception or 200 guests for a dinner buffet reception. You’ll love the Terrace Room with its hardwood stage that doubles as a dance floor for your reception. The Terrace Room also has a graceful 17-foot arched ceiling and floor-to ceiling windows. Mirrored walls reflect views of the Upper Lake, tall cedars and weeping willows which brings the outdoors in. The room spills open to a lovely open-air terrace that sits at the water’s edge.
The adjoining Gazebo Room allows your guests to comfortably mingle and enjoy the lake, garden and gazebo views. In this room, guests will also admire your scrumptious wedding cake. A fountain on the lake provides a pretty backdrop for your cake-cutting photographs. And your spectacular buffet will seem all the more beautiful with the shimmering Upper Lake in the background. The Gazebo Room spills out on to a patio that accommodates additional lakeside seating.
The Fireplace Room adjoins the hardwood stage and Gazebo Room. This is the perfect room for smaller intimate weddings with its magnificent fireplace and marble and oak surround. This is where our black ebony baby grand piano resides. The piano is on casters and may be moved to the Terrace room via the hardwood stage if requested for your event.
