My husband and I got married at Lake of Isles on 11/4/17. From the start of our planning to picking up our decorations the day after our wedding, everything was amazing. Sheila was super responsive, no matter what small or silly question we had. She helped us so muchthroughout, making our planning significantly less stressful. We met Bethany the day before, and quickly realized she would be a large part of the reason our day would stay stress free so we could simply enjoy it. The day was beautiful, the food was awesome, and our guests are still raving about the day. We could've gone with venues closer to home, but nothing was comparable. The location, ambiance, and staff are all wonderful. I would 100% recommend Lake of Isles to anyone who wants a fabulous, stress-free wedding day! Thanks to Sheila, Bethany, and the whole staff!

What an experience..... Location/Facility: The grounds are perfect for an indoor/outdoor wedding. Foxwoods is so convenient to get to, and a great place for your guests to have fun before and after the wedding, a lot of our guests stayed an extra night and made a long weekend out of it. The ceremony takes place on a large deck made for weddings overlooking the lake. We had or wedding in early October and the weather cooperated with us. Parking is easy, we had a shuttle running just for us in a loop between the casino and venue. After our ceremony we were whisked away to have photos done on the bridge overlooking the lake. Our guests were ushered through the stunning entry way adjacent a craftsman style study/library with stone fireplace. Our cocktail hour was in the reception hall, with vaulted exposed beam ceilings. After our photos we were brought into the bridal suite to await entrance into the party. Planning Staff: We had about 3 months to plan our wedding when we finally found this venue, we had seen some positive reviews but they weren't first on the list because we were apprehensive about a "casino" wedding. We called and were put in touch with Sheila and scheduled an early morning appointment to see the location. I haven't had any other experience with weddings, but I can't imagine anyone being more pleasant, professional, and competent at their job. We knew it was the place fairly quickly and signed our contract that morning. We communicated with Sheila no fewer than 2 dozen times over the next few months, by phone and email she responded quickly. She helped us get everything in order, offered advice based on her experience, and really just became our friend, it was a surprising experience. Day Of Staff: The day before we were introduced to the General, Bethany. Any minor doubts we had about the logistics of the wedding day wen out the window. Flawless execution, manner, and organization. The Day: Best day ever.

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Lake of Isles on June 10, 2017 and I still can’t stop ranting and raving about how amazing the staff was. Five stars just isn’t enough for this venue, the staff and the food! We loved that the venue has only one wedding a day – this allowed for a more intimate feel that the day truly was our special day. We were overly impressed with both Sheila and Bethany – these two ladies have such a love and passion for what they do. Sheila was amazing during the whole wedding planning process and made it a breeze! She was extremely responsive and answered all my questions to ensure no detail got lost - she was extremely organized and detail oriented which I loved! We were also so happy Bethany was there to help with our wedding the day of – she made sure every little detail was absolutely perfect based on what we discussed in our final appointment. She went above and beyond our expectations and made sure everything was taken care of and the day went off without any issues! She was extremely attentive all night long and ensured we were aware of where/when things were taking place. We were also extremely impressed with Melissa, our bridal attendant, who also took care of us during the night. We had our ceremony out on the deck overlooking the water and our cocktail hour down in Matches. Every bride hopes that the vision in her head comes through the day of the wedding– well these ladies did a FANTASTIC job – I remember my mom coming up to me and saying ‘wait until you see the ballroom – it’s everything you’ve imagined and more.’ From the hors d'oeuvres to the entrees – the food was absolutely amazing! We've heard back from so many guests about how impressed they were with the staff, the venue and the food! We would highly recommend LOI to anyone!! A HUGE thank you again to the whole LOI staff for helping to make our day absolutely perfect – words truly cannot describe how grateful Kyle and I are!

Our wedding at Lake of Isles was beyond perfection! From the minute we viewed the venue and met Sheila we were in love. Sheila is an absolute pleasure to work with; she is friendly, professional, makes you feel like a priority at all times and answers and questions or concerns quickly. On the day before our wedding, I met Bethany, who would be the coordinator at our wedding. She too immediately made me feel so comfortable and I knew everything would be taken care of! From the minute we arrived from the church, Sheila and Bethany welcomed us with warm smiles and arranged to have us taken to the bridge for photos in time to catch the sunset. When we came back, Sheila and Bethany met us again with a plate of appetizers to snack on before we headed in to greet our guests! It was something that may seem small, but to be able to take a few quiet moments and share a few laughs before the reception kicked off was just perfect. The level of service that LOI provides is exquisite. The staff is incredible, the food is out of this world and the venue itself is flawless! I am still receiving calls from family and friends raving about the food and the service they experienced at our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Lake of Isles, and I am so thrilled that we chose it for the wedding of our dreams!

Lake of Isles is beautiful - I think I will forever be disappointed that it rained on our wedding day and we didn't get to take advantage of the dock. BUT we had a beautiful indoor ceremony still overlooking the lake. From the beginning of the process, Sheila was amazing to work with (super communicative and fast with responses)! The transition to Bethany (day-of coordinator) was seamless. Bethany was on top of everything, from telling my bridesmaids how to best walk down the aisle, to ensuring the guests were smoothly moved from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception (all of our guests said it was the best coordination they have ever seen at a wedding!) And love that Bethany even dressed up in black and gold to match our Great Gatsby theme!!! And the food was fantastic - everyone kept complimenting it. Highly highly recommend!!! Thank you Sheila, Bethany and everyone at Lake of Isles for making our day amazing!

Shiela, Bethany and the team at Lake of Isles made our wedding day everything we could have ever hoped! Planning prior to the wedding was made easy with Sheila helping every step of the way; no question was ever too silly and she jump at the opportunity to fulfill any requests we had. We cannot thank Sheila enough for all of her help, she truly made planning the wedding much simpler then we ever could have thought. The day of our wedding went off without a hitch thanks a great deal to Bethany and her team. She made the day about us and our guests and was absolutely amazing to work with. For the décor, she was able to bring our vision to life and made it even better than I could have imagined, even adding a few touches of her own. She did an incredible job coordinating all the events and making sure they remained on time. Not to mention the food was top of the line, and the location and views are unbeatable! Lake of Isles made our wedding the time of our lives and our guests have had nothing but compliments for the whole night. We wouldn't change a thing if we were to go back and redo it!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sheila and Bethany at Lake of Isles! When looking for a venue, it was very important to my husband and I that we could feel at ease with the wedding planners and coordinators. After looking at nearly 10 venues, we finally found that in Sheila. Sheila is absolutely wonderful to work with. She responds very quickly to all emails and phone calls and really made me feel at ease during the planning process. She is very organized and was great in accommodating all of our special requests. Bethany, the day of coordinator was phenomenal. She kept the day running smoothly and on time, and helped to keep me calm when I was having issues with my dress. She even jumped in and helped to fix my dress when it kept coming undone. The only complaint we heard from guests was that one of the bartenders was rude and they left a tip jar on the counter when it should not have been. But the venue is gorgeous, it combines majestic views of a golf course and a lakefront atmosphere which makes for a great background for photos. The food was amazing, especially the filet mignon. Sheila, Bethany, and the other wait staff truly made the day stress free. We would definitely recommend Lake of Isles. Our guests continue to compliment us weeks later that it was one of the nicest weddings that they had ever been to, and we thank the staff at Lake of Isles for that.

Lake of Isles created our dream wedding. Right from the very first meeting, my wife and I knew there was something special about Lake of Isles and the coordinator Sheila. She was extremely friendly and professional and it felt like we had known her for years. She was more than happy to build us a custom package for our reception. Throughout the entire planning process, Sheila was always quick to respond to questions and available whenever we needed her. The venue itself is beautiful. We had our ceremony on the dock overlooking the lake, the cocktail hour in Matches Tavern, and the reception in the large ballroom. Everything turned out even better than how we envisioned. Bethany is the day of coordinator and she is just as amazing as Sheila. She gave us direction during the rehearsal/day of the wedding and was able to keep us calm. During cocktail hour she attended to our family as we were taking pictures along with the server dedicated to the bride and groom. Our theme was nautical and Bethany went above and beyond with little details at the bar and our guest book table. The food was spectacular. All of our guests were so pleased with the selections at our stations (Asian display, pasta bar, carving station and Venetian table). Everything ran smoothly and it was all thanks to Bethany and Sheila. They are the best of the best and it was such a pleasure getting to work with them to create the wedding of our dreams at Lake of Isles. If you want a fantastic wedding that your guests will be talking about for years to come, look no further than Lake of Isles.

Sheila was absolutely amazing from the first meeting, to answering questions leading up to the big day, to mapping out the final details the day before. She would remember something I mentioned in passing months before and bring it up again. Additionally, Bethany and our personal server, Melissa, went above and beyond our expectations. They anticipated what we needed before we even needed it! We received rave reviews about the food and service even many months after. We worried about absolutely nothing the day of the wedding and all of our special requests were honored. I highly recommend this venue to all couples looking.

Our wedding reception at Lake of Isles was beyond perfect. I can't say enough about how extraordinary our experience was. We began planning a little over a year in advance and found that of all the venues we considered, Lake of Isles had the best price for a guest list of 200. We had a wonderful tour and later attended an event to sample cakes, appetizers, and meet other vendors. All throughout the planning process, Sheila (Director of Catering) was fabulous. I would send an email with a question on a Sunday night and get a response within hours. She was always courteous and professional. No question was too insignificant for her to address. The day before our wedding Sheila, Bethany, and other friendly staff members helped us set up our centerpieces (made out of books for a literary theme wedding). We brought multiple items, including family photos, and nothing was lost in the shuffle. Our wedding was August 19, 2016. While the bridal party was taking pictures, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the beautiful deck. The food was delicious and Lake of Isles accommodated my Polish family by adding kielbasa to the appetizer list for us. They also found a specific mixer that my mother had requested and a waiter scurried down from the reception hall to the deck with a bottle so my mother could have her preferred drink. Guests raved about the food. We selected the prime rib, free range chicken breast with artichokes, and a stuffed mushroom vegetarian option. Lake of Isles was very accommodating to guests who had special dietary needs, like vegetarians, vegans, and people with gluten and nut allergies. They provided alternative salad dressings and desserts to guests who could not enjoy the Caesar salad or cake. One guest in particular raved about the coffee! My husband and I had a waitress especially for us. She made our experience stress-free. All staff members were courteous, helpful, and professional. Our day was truly amazing!

Absolutely incredible! Our day went perfectly thanks to Sheila and Bethany! I could not have asked for a better group to plan my wedding with. Sheila was prompt with emails, never made me feel like a burden, and made me feel truly special. I cannot say it enough, Lake of Isles was the absolute perfect place! We did not get to enjoy our food at the reception, but the staff wrapped it up for us to take home. Even a day later and heated up in the microwave; perfection! I can't wait to enjoy another wedding there as a guest! Thank you to Sheila and Bethany for everything - you made this the best day of our lives!
