Right away when I saw pictures of this place, I had to go see it. The venue looks exactly like the pictures and online virtual tour.
Our biggest focus for us was being able to bring our own food since we wanted cultural food, true to our et...
hnic background. It's hard to find a beautiful venue big enough for our guests and to allow that. This place had everything we were looking for. The bonus was the lake and the outdoor balcony.
Working with Paige and Jennifer was an ease! They were accommodating and flexible as much as they could be. Paige made it very easy for me and kept in contact the whole time.
On the wedding day, my people did not have any problems with the staff. All of the staff were accommodating to our needs and responded fast. I loved the lady who maintained the reception hall, I didn't get her name, but she was just a sweetheart with the warmest smile.
The only small downfall is that because the place is so new, there are a lot of decoration regulations such as no flower petals inside, no tape on the walls, etc. For the most part, the building is very lit during the day and the lake makes up for any decoration part. Also, during the reception, the music system through the walls didn't connect to our laptop. So we had to bring in our amp from the ceremony. Not sure if that was our laptop or the system, but that was a bummer. The mics didn't seem to be as loud as they could have either.
Other than those minor things, I loved the building and the staff. Oconomowoc is beautiful and the public was courteous to our outdoor ceremony. No one was really at the beach, so we lucked out. A boat approached our dock, but no one really noticed them.
Our guests came to about 190, and no one complained about parking. Everyone only had good things to say about this venue. And they loved the balcony
I would recommend this place anyone!
