  • After originally getting great reviews in the beginning of my wedding planning, I decided to check it out. When I first tried To get information from them about their venue it took them forever to respond. Which apparently was an issue for them for awhile. It was either days or weeks before I heard anything back from them. I finally was able to take a tour of the space and booking them as my venue as I loved the space. After I booked with them the non communication continued. If I had questions for the most part I would have to drive there on the weekends to get any additional info I needed and to get basic questions answered. A few more weeks passed and I still wouldn't get any emails or calls returned. It wasn't until I met with my dj to find out that the 2 girls I had been dealing with were fired! I didn't hear from cedar lake not once letting me know I would have somebody else helping me with my wedding there. I again had to go up there and meet with the 2 new people to talk about...

    On behalf of Cedar Lake Cellars and myself, we would like to apologize for your situation. Like you stated, we did have new staff on our team (both our Events Director and our Events Coordinator had been hired three weeks prior to personally meeting with you in October to discuss her concerns.) Although we attempted to communicate with you and other private event guests via email, not everyone received our letters introducing our new events staff due to incorrect contact information we had on file from past leadership. We apologize once again for this mishap. We at Cedar Lake Cellars understood your dissatisfaction, which is why we refunded your deposit. Our winery hosts hundreds of weddings and special celebrations each year, and we make every attempt to ensure these events are as seamless and worry-free as possible. Our new events team is now in place, and we believe we absolutely can provide the type of experience that brides like you deserve.

  • Stephanie and Casey at Cedar Lake Cellars were wonderful to work with, and created a beautiful reality out of an initially vague vision. We were about 8 months in when Covid hit, and then things got weird. Stephanie kept us on course and as things evolved, worked with our specific requests to keep our guests safe and comfortable. Everyone had a great time, the food was terrific, and many people reported back that they had been worried but things were handled very well. I can't wait to see the photos when the photographer has them ready to view!

  • All the CL staff I worked with were very accommodating and professional leading up to the wedding. They were even able to schedule a private tasting for us because we weren't happy with the vegetable options offered at the first bridal tasting. All my questions were answered quickly. On the day of the wedding all the staff members were all very helpful; running to find people if they were MIA and not complaining about taking us around on golf carts. We had our ceremony in the meadow and our reception in the Big Red Barn and everything went as smoothly as you can expect a wedding to go! Of course my wedding day will always have a special place in my heart, and so will Cedar Lakes.

  • We got married at Cedar Lake Cellars in the summer and it was the PERFECT day. We visited the venue once and immediately knew that was where we wanted to get married. Stephanie was a fantastic coordinator and was so responsive and helpful! The food was incredible and the employees went above and beyond to make our day perfect. I highly recommend this venue and Stephanie!

  • This venue is just gorgeous!! We got married in the meadow under the tree with a unique long branch that made for a gorgeous backdrop and lots or privacy. I recommend this location over the lake area if it's wine season, as the public will be in the background of your pictures by the lake. And the reception was in the new barrel room by the lake, also crazy beautiful and very rustic. We were fortunate enough to have 65-70 degree weather in October, and all my guests said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. But watch out! When you have weather this nice, people will tend to want to hang out outside by the lake. Make sure to get a good DJ to keep them dancing if you're into that. The venue is large - but we made it not look so barren with only 150 guests. Kristine and Angie are both amazing, very friendly and responsive. They changed the color of the lights in the venue to all white from colors for me, and worked through several table arrangements for me, as well as a ... Read more

  • The venue is perfect an the staff is amazing. It is beautiful and the food delicious. Our guests loved the venue and the were raving about the food all night. Our wedding coordinator was fabulous as well as the rest of the staff that helped make our big day perfect. We could not image having our wedding anywhere else.

  • My husband and I are still amazed by the wonderful job everyone at this venue did for our wedding!! We held both the rehearsal dinner and wedding at Cedar Lake Cellars and I could not have been more pleased with how things turned out. The events were not without hiccups (including moving the ceremony under cover due to threat of rain after the grandparents and parents had already processed in and been seated) but Angie and her team sprung into action quickly and made sure everything went as smooth as possible. They were all very calm, cool and collected and often had a glass of wine in hand for both myself and my husband. We got numerous compliments on the beauty of the location, the food and the overall experience from our guests. The food was amazing, the bartenders were efficient and the staff was top notch!! When I arrived on site to begin photos I began to tear up as I saw how beautiful the staff set up the space with the decorations we provided. They took my vision and mad... Read more

  • I was the maid of honor in a wedding this past Saturday at cedar lakes... I must say that this use to be one of my favorite places to go for a nice quite time with friends or family, but that has since changed. The ceremony went off without any issues and was beautiful with acknowledgement to the bride’s mother as well as the events specialist they brought into the venue to decorate.... the reception was a different story.... the dinner was a a sit down and one that was less then pleasurable.... my steak was rare (which I love my steak medium rare) and when I asked the server if they could cook it a little longer she told me it was fine and to eat it. The whole head tables steak was cold and rare as was multiple other tables.... the asparagus looked like they were frozen out of a bag. Every staff member that I encountered was rude and cold. When I went to the bar to get a glass of wine and each time was met with eye rolls and obvious annoyance. One of the times I asked for a glass of... Read more

  • I absolutely loved both he location and the team at Cedar Lake Cellars! I don't feel like I made any obnoxious requests, but of course there were visions that I had and wanted put together and they made that happen. We do not live in the area, and so finding a location that offered both ceremony and reception and assistance in coordinating it was a must! Honestly, doing business with Cedar Lake Cellars was so easy and I was never frustrated! Also, the amount of smiles from the team every time I saw them was proof that they love their jobs, which was so awesome!

  • I was the bride at this reception venue. We had 300 guest and paid for an open bar. We were told we would have two bars for the wedding. We had one bar with one worker at it at one point in time. Lines got long and it was silly for the cedar lake cellars not to have made arrangements to be prepared for this day. They were unprepared for the crowd that we paid for in advance. One of the event planners came screaming at me the bride she was closing the bar down at 9pm. That people were out of control too drunk and will get a dwi. Not to mention we had a bus taking everyone one home following reception time. There was absolutely no one too drunk or out of line. My brother did decide to take his shirt off with just his vest on because it was June 30th and a hundred degrees. But that was absolutely it! She was screaming at yelling at me THE bride. I got my brother to put his shirt on no big deal. That lady was in a yelling match with my entire family at my wedding. Not only was the venue un... Read more

  • First off, Our coordinator was PERFECT and this review has nothing to do with how awesome of a job she did!! We had paid to start our ceremony an hour before the usual so that our guests could eat dinner at a decent time, but after invites had already been sent out we were told they can only provide 5 hours of open bar due to liability reasons, even if we paid extra for another hour... so we had guests waiting around for drinks right after ceremony and we had to end our reception earlier then planned. I didn't know any of this until after we got back from our honeymoon... Staff had been very rude to our guests... and that's a big deal to me. The last thing you want is your guests to look back at your wedding and think negatively. Smokers were told to smoke in gravel parking lot or in the smoking area on the grounds. It was much closer for guests to smoke on gravel lot, but there was two staff members that kept telling guests to go back into reception, no smoking aloud anywhere. We... Read more

  • I have a complicated review. I will begin by saying that the day of the wedding was very organized, and I am extremely happy with how it went. However, we had a lot of trouble working with the staff at CLC. We tried to have them give us a place to put a deposit on a tent multiple months before the wedding because our wedding was Memorial Day weekend and we knew places would be booked. They didn't give us a name until the month of the wedding and by then everything was booked. We had to go outside of the venue to secure one for ourselves, which was a miracle. We had torrential rain during our ceremony. We have no idea why they don't already have a good tent plan set up, but make sure you cover your bases! Also, VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE, this venue intends to serve you your wine in PLASTIC cups. Does this make sense for a winery? NO. Might as well say "our wine sucks". Make sure you have them give you ALL the details up front because there were multiple things they wanted to charge us ... Read more
