Serendipity Boutique & Formalwear
Lakewood Ranch Country Club was absolutely wonderful! We had already been booked at another venue for the reception but they tried to pull a fast one on us and increase our costs after new mangagement had taken over, so we decided to look elsewhere and found LWR for around the same price (since we got married on a Friday, the minimum is $6,500 rather than $10,000 for a Saturday). Jennifer made planning a breeze and everyone was very attentive and professional. They even waived the $500 non-member fee since I booked before August. Everything was wonderful and I received a ton of compliments on how beautiful the whole facility was and that the food was terrific. We used the entire ballroom which was perfect for my 110 guest wedding, not too cramped but not a ton of empty space either. Also, a plus was that the facility was all decked out for Christmas, so really helped set the festive mood. We really felt that the other venue's unprofessionalism ended up being a blessing in disguise because LWR was much nicer all around and really made our day special!
Lakewood Ranch Country Club was a beautiful spot to have our ceremony. They were easy to work with and our outside ceremony site was simple but absolutely beautiful. Everything was set up just like we had talked about and everything from the rehearsal to the ceremony ran smoothly. There was lots of staff there to help and everyone was friendly and very knowledgable as to their job that day.
