Thank you for making our wedding day so special and memorable!
I am such a type-A, controlling person, so finding the right venue for our wedding was quite the task. We did our research and toured many venues. Lauren and her team at The Pavilion were the only ones who had everything we needed and wanted. After our first in-person meeting, my husband and I got in the car, he looked and me and said, “I like her. She’s straightforward.” He was totally right, and that’s exactly what we needed. There were no surprises or hidden fees, etc. Lauren was so patient with me and all of my questions. She calmed all of my worries. On the day of our wedding, I know of one “fire” that she put out. There were probably more (things happen) that I don’t even know about. Throughout the whole process, Lauren was quick to respond to my emails. She gave us everything we needed in a very timely manner. She worked with us on special dietary needs for myself and several guests. (That was important to me.) She is phenomenal at her job. The venue itself is beautiful. We had both our ceremony and reception here. We were able to get in early the day of the wedding and get ceremony decorations up. We also got ready on-site in the very spacious bridal suite. We want to say thank you to Lauren, Madelon, Dawn, and everyone at The Pavilion at Lake Elmo. We had a wonderful wedding day and working with you all was so easy and painless.
“Laura was absolutely incredible to work with!! She was so fast to respond and knew the answers to everything!! The venue was absolutely beautiful on the day of and everything ran so smooth day of! It was so nice to have the hotel attached right to the venue too! 10/10 recommend this venue for your wedding day!!”
The Pavilion was PERFECT for us!
“While planning our wedding, we wanted a venue that was attached to a hotel and that wasn’t outrageously expensive. The Pavilion was PERFECT for us! The events coordinator there, Laura, was amazing to work with. She was so on top of things and was there our day of helping us coordinate. We took our photos outside the hotel and they turned out great. We also held our rehearsal dinner there, which went smoothly! Highly recommend The Pavilion!!”
