What could be more perfect than an outdoor wedding at Friends Lake Inn? With our beautiful pond and gazebo as a backdrop, an elegant enclosed tent, exquisite food and exceptional service, we have been proud to be a part of some of the most memorable wedding receptions ever on our own back lawn.
We offer a variety of wedding packages which can be customized for your own special day. The most popular is our "Signature Sampler Reception", where food is prepared and served at various stations throughout the event. We provide a pasta station, a cheese and fruit table, salads, and a carving station, for example. This creates a casual party atmosphere, allowing your guests to eat and drink when they want, and the freedom to visit, sit, or dance, without being forced to stay in one seat. Traditional buffets are also offered, along with sit-down dinners.
