What Couples are Saying:
“My dream wedding came true at the Esplanade Lakes!! My fiancé and I decided to check out this venue the winter before our anticipated wedding date. On a very snowy evening, we met up with Janet at the venue and instantly fell in love with it! From day one, Janet was beyond helpful with orchestrating all the details of the wedding! She was always so eager to please us and to ensure our wedding day was the BEST DAY EVER… (which it was)! Any worry or question I had, Janet was there! Finally the day is here! We decided to have both the ceremony and the reception at the Esplanade Lakes. With the pristine frosted lake as a backdrop, the ceremony was beyond breathtaking!! It was like walking into a dream! The staff quickly turned the room around from ceremony to reception in about a hour and we were ready to get the party started! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was spectacular, and the staff was extraordinary!! I did not have a single worry the day of my wedding because of the outpouring of care and professionalism demonstrated by Janet and her staff! I would absolutely recommend this venue for any wedding, for any season!!!” – Jaclyn R
“We planned our wedding very quickly this summer. It was very smooth and easy working with Janet Lobo. She was a HUGE help and very attentive. She offered her advice when asked (specifically about our table linens and such) and the room turned out beautifully! Better than I ever envisioned. She is an absolute pleasure and was a selling point for us. The room is gorgeous and the cocktail hour space is amazing. The windows at this venue offer a spectacular view! The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing. We received lots of compliments. Which can be unheard of at weddings!! We had over 300 and the food was served hot! We had many guests with food preferences and everyone from the food tasting to the apps and dinner on the big day was very accommodating which was amazing. It was great to work with people who are willing to work with you and your vision for your wedding. We were very happy! The pics from our reception turned out great and it rained on our wedding day! Please check this place out. You won’t be disappointed!” – Monica B
