One a very busy weekend recently we had three very special and different celebrations that demonstrate just how different this incredible place can be, depending on the type of event that you’re looking to host.
A Beautiful Wedding Celebration
For 2015 we changed our wedding packages so that we could offer Tony’s decades of experience from start to finish for a wedding celebration. Our new packages offer either a ceremony only, or a complete wedding and reception experience.
In this case Justine and Nick met Tony at a bridal show and were the first to take advantage of these new packages, choosing to have both ceremony and reception at the Featherbed Railroad. In the months before the very special day Tony and Justine collaborated on all sorts of things, from table linen colors to specific songs for specific parts of the celebration.
“You’re my wedding fairy!” said Justine.
“Can I be a wedding magician instead?,” responded Tony.
Among the things the that were provided at Justine and Nick’s celebration was the bartender, tables, linens, DJ (SoundsLikeFUNDJ), day-of coordination and more. Our caterer was a favorite of ours, Lindy’s Quality Catering. Photo and video were provided for by Justine & Nick and she chose well.
For a wedding, we’re very happy to be here for you and also point you in the direction of some of the best wedding professionals we’ve had the privilege of working with. There are some great professionals in the special event business in Lake County with a variety of pricing and service delivery to match almost any taste and budget.
Our picnic grounds could easily accommodate the 60 administrative professionals. There is even power so that Scott DeLeon could deliver a presentation about Clear Lake.
Catering was handled by the local high school which is teaching a group of students to take advantage of the incredible agricultural resources that we have in Lake County to prepare fresh, locally-sourced meals for the students and, on occasion, for catering customers.
It so happened that they were so busy on this day that they had to rush from one job to the next, but the students left an incredible selection of choices that were in farmer’s fields just a day or two before. Heck, if this food were any fresher our guests would be out in the fields picking it themselves.
Our picnic grounds are a great place for bike and car club gatherings, small company events and, of course, family reunions.
A grand finalé
You would think that a weekend that already had two big events would be capped off by some hammock time, but not this weekend. Our Sunday was graced by Strong Financial’s annual celebration where some 250 customers of Jennifer Strong’s great financial advice gathered to celebrate another successful year.
Jennifer and her team do a great job of managing a lot of people’s hard-earned money. They’re also terrific members of the community and so this is a gigantic fan fest but one that the team makes sure is an absolute blast.
The team at Strong Financial created a very special sarsaparilla drink that guests really enjoyed and there was some incredible barbecue prepared by Lake Event Design as well.
Whether you’re hoping for a simple celebration of your love together, a big outdoor blast to celebrate a great year or a small meeting or corporate event our experience in the special events business means we’re a thrilled and willing partner for you. We hope, the next time you plan a very special celebration, you think of us.
