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.

My husband and I were very happy with our wedding here. We felt from the time we booked up until our wedding day the staff was very helpful. We had alot of family from the city and had so may compliments on how much fun our wedding was. We loved the ceremony space right on the water, it was breathtaking. My bridal attendant and Matre'd were amazing on our wedding day and the girls in the office were awesome!! The food was delicious, the dj played the best mix of salsa and top 40, everyone was dancing. Could not have picked a better place! Thank you so much!!!!!

Windows on the Lake was absolutely amazing!!! Then venue itself is beautiful and the outside landscape was perfect for pictures! The entire staff was such a pleasure I could go on and on about them. Frank Amantia was our banquet manager and also our ceremony officiant and he was just great from start to finish. He was a true gentleman and very professional and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us, which he also made sure I had the outside ceremony I always dreamed of. He made me feel very confident in all of them to make the day the best day ever and they did. Danielle the manager was so helpful and efficient, she really made the whole process very smooth for me. The day of my wedding was perfect from beginning to end. They all make me you feel like family there. Frankie the maitre d was truly the best! He was so on top of everything and made sure everything was perfect. My bridal attendant was also amazing, I wish I remembered her name because I would love to personally recognize her because she was fantastic!! By my side all night and made sure I was good at all times. The food was great, the décor was great, they really listened to everything I wanted and made it happen. Windows was perfect! My wedding was like a dream!

I had and amazing wedding. The staff there are all amazing. They are so knowledgeable and helpful. It was a real pleasure working with them. I truly would recommend anyone to have a wedding there. The day went on perfect. The only thing I would have changed was that it was very hot the day of my wedding and my guests were sweating so cocktail hour should have been in doors. They accomodated everyone by having everyone sit inside after they go the food.

Perfect place for a wedding reception! The quality of the service was tip-top. They guided us through the whole process. No pressure sales. If you decided to go with someone else for dj or photography, they were glad to help arrange if need be. The value we got was far beyond our expectations. In the two weeks prior to the wedding, you only deal with the owner, Frank. He gives you his phone numbers and tells you to call any time for any reason. We didn't need to, but if was really nice to know if we needed to. Best value for the price! Very professional staff. They took care of everything!

Windows on the Lake surpassed our wildest expectations. Frank, our salesman, felt like family and whenever we stopped by or called in he made us feel like we were the most important part of his day. The maitre'd (Frankie) and bridal attendant (Besty) were phenomenal and delivered a flawless evening. Windows on the Lake delivered on EVERYTHING they said they would and even threw in some extras. Here's what really impressed us. All along we planned an outdoor ceremony but of course on the Big Day Mother Nature didn't want to cooperate. Reluctantly, we decided three hours before the event to bring it inside. Then, an HOUR before the ceremony Frankie came and said the weather cleared and ground dried enough to move outside. We jumped at the chance and the Windows crew created an entire outdoor ceremony from scratch. We started on-time and Frankie kept the entire evening moving very smoothly. From beginning to end we felt like we were in great hands. Windows on the Lake offers event services and we used their DJ who did a TERRIFIC job! The food and wedding cake were, hands down, every bit as good as they said it would be. The whole evening featured a parade of food that seemed never ending - complete with complimentary seconds for anyone still hungry after dinner. We went with a strawberry shortcake for the cake and it was delicious.

What initially drew us to Windows on the Lake was the fact that it is located Lake-side! We originally were going to do a destination wedding, but unforseen events made us go local. The scenery from Windows on the Lake was perfect. When we arrived we immediately noticed the Hibiscus in season and that put a big cheesy grin on my face (me & my husband are from the Islands). Then we stepped inside the Venu and noticed the green carpeting which put another big smile on my face (my favorite color is green). Upon meeting our contact, Frank A., I don't think I/we stopped smiling until we said our goodbyes, right after signing our contract on the spot. Frank is personable, easy going, helpful, accommodating, and so humorous. Windows on the Lake itself did not disappoint...we were pleased with everything. The outdoors color and the color of the ceiling in the Reception room was the same as our wedding color...a beautiful BLUE hue. Frank was with us every step of the way until we waved our goodbyes at the end of our wedding night. Everything was PERFECT: the ambiance, the service, the food, the staff and Frank...we were pleased on all aspects of our wedding. They ROCK! We will surely recommend as often as a wedding occasion arises.
