You really get the bang for your buck at Windows on the Lake. They have an outdoor patio for cocktail hour which is great. On the day of my wedding it started to rain a little before we got there so we weren't able to use the patio. What made me feel so at ease with WOTL is that I knew if it rained, I still have a fabulous room inside that is for cocktail hour. Your guests still overlook the water and it's beautiful. So you have that reassurance if it rains. Right before I got married they actually added some new touches - new chairs in the ballroom, flowers in the main entryway, flowers in other places; it looks really elegant. The main ballroom is spectacular. My SO and I loved the room. the high ceiling over the dance floor makes the room appear bigger and it's painted so beautifully. The chandeliers are so pretty.
The guests commented to my mom how the food was so good. Their penne ala vodka is so delicious! I am gluten free and they were more than accommodating with that. Almost everything at cocktail hour they were able to make gluten free and most of the main dishes they were able to make gluten free. Notice my statement before how the guests all commented the food was so good - they had no idea and couldn't even tell it was mostly gluten free. Job well done on that. As far as my cake, my husband and I don't really like cake so I was a little nontraditional and asked for individual berry parfaits which would be gluten free as well. They hadn't done berry parfaits before so that was new but their baker is gluten free so she was able to understand what I wanted and make it taste good - the berries tasted so fresh. She also made me a little gluten free cake so I could do the traditional cake cutting ceremony - a gluten free cake with cannoli filling tasted amazing.
They also couldn't do enough for me the day of the wedding! As far as the bridal attendant - she was so accommodating, so nice and catered to our needs.

Amazing venue and amazing people. They worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect and exactly what we wanted. They even corrected the mistakes of other vendors to ensure we were happy and relaxed. Everyone who was at the wedding raved about how beautiful and fun the wedding was and it was all thanks to Windows on the Lake. I would highly recommend this venue if you was a unique, affordable, and gorgeous venue.

Me and my husband just got married here on 9/12/15 and everything from start to finish was great! We booked our wedding with Frank and he was awesome, treated us like family! I am a stressed person to begin with but every time we met with Frank and Anthony and everyone at Windows they always helped calm my nerves. The big day finally came and everything completely came together and even though it rained the wedding was absolutely perfect! Frank was also our officiant and he performed a great ceremony! Our maitre'd Frankie was awesome and our Bridal attendant Sabrina was amazingggg!!!!!! Our guests cannot stop talking about what a great time they had and about how great the food was and how much food there was! The alcoholic drinks were great, all our guests were so happy that the drinks were NOT watered down at all! The lighting for the reception was great as well! Everything was awesome, we are so glad we had our wedding at windows and we hope to attend a wedding here one day as well, as we def plan to go back! Great venue, great view of the lake, great food and GREAT STAFF!

Anthony and the staff at Windows on the Lake really made our dream wedding happen. They executed all of our requests and vision perfectly. Anthony was always available to go over our ideas with us. He made us feel like our day really mattered to him as much as it did to us. Our Maitre'D Frankie was so organized it was such a relief, we were able to really enjoy everything without any worry or headache! Everything went so smoothly it was so great! The food we already knew was going to be fantastic we went to the sunday brunch a bunch of times before our wedding.. our family was very happy with the food especially the filet mignon! The dj's from fourth generation were so much fun they made sure everyone was dancing all night. We had a blast

This venue was just what I wanted. It was close to my church, intimate, beautiful, great sunsets over the lake, and all around a great choice for us. I also loved the fact that we were the only wedding that day since we chose a Friday night. It was reasonably priced. Honestly, after booking the venue I was extremely uncomfortable every time we went down there to ask questions and or make a payment. I felt very rushed by the sales team. But the reason I gave this venue a 5 out of 5 was because of Frankie the matire'd. He absolutely made our night a dream. After meeting with him a few days before the wedding I knew this was going to to be great. Well he went above and beyond to make sure everything went just how we wanted. Even though I didn't eat or drink since I was so busy, Stephanie the bridal attendant, was right at my side making sure I had everything I wanted. I can't thank these 2 enough. With all of out DIY ideas, Frankie made sure everything looked amazing. I was beyond amazed on how beautiful the night was and my guests complimented everything the days after. They said it was a gorgeous venue and they all loved the food. Thank you to the Windows teams (servers, cooks, everyone!) for making my wedding night more than I dreamed of and a special thank you to Frankie who was such a pleasure to work with!

I just had my wedding here this past Saturday and it doesn't get any better than Windows on the Lake. From the first meetings we had with them to the last minute of our wedding, the entire experience was unbelievably perfect.

We met with Bill and Frank several times during the planning, who made the process very easy and stress-free. They were both very professional and helpful and assured us that everything would be great (Frank even gave us his cell number if we had any questions). They were so right. My bridal attendant, Stefanie, attended to every need I could possibly have and our maître d, Frankie, not only made everything sail smoothly, but he anticipated our needs as well. Both so friendly and great energy. These people made the day so easy and worryfree.

The food was top notch. My eating experience with wedding halls tended to be to fill up during cocktail hour because the main course usually was not good, but the food here was so delicious throughout the evening. It is all prepared fresh and in house and A LOT of it. Nobody went home hungry. My guests kept raving about it during the night. The staff even gave us some to take home which we had today and we cleaned the plates.

The venue itself is beautiful. It is on the lake and the landscape is so pretty. We had our ceremony indoors but there is also an area for the ceremony right outside by the lake. We used that area for pictures beforehand and could not have asked for a better backdrop. We had the cocktail hour outside and it was the perfect weather and atmosphere. Everybody was relaxing and it set the mood for a great party. The reception room was the ideal size for our party and tastefully decorated. I am not into ostentatious decoration and this place was all class and good taste.

I've heard so many bad stories about wedding venues and I am so glad I know nothing about that. This place sets the standard for how a wedding should be. Can't say enough great stuff about it. Thank you again.
