Wedding Pros

We work with a superb group of wedding professionals who will make sure your event at Lakeside Occasions is as close to perfect as it can get, at a very affordable price! All of our wedding professionals are optional, with the exception of Bar Services & Security. Take a look at our list below! (We do not guarantee the quality of services of any wedding professional not affiliated with Lakeside Occasions.)

Food

(If you choose not to use one of our partnering caterers, a $200 fee will apply. They must also be licensed and insured, AND sign our Facility Use Agreement.)

No Forks Given – Food truck including late night eats, such as tacos, sliders, nachos, hotdogs, etc. Please email [email protected] for a menu & pricing.

***Emma Café & Catering is no longer accepting new catering business. All confirmed catering services for the 2019/2020 season will be fulfilled as promised.

We are currently expanding our preferred caterers list to include some other well-respected Amish-Style restaurants, and will post those new partnerships as they become available!

Bar Service

All alcohol must be provided and served by Lakeside Occasions. We offer options including open bar and host/cash bar for beer and wine, as well as a signature drink option and a champagne toast. We will provide a bar menu upon request. We do not allow hard liquor (aside from what’s in the signature drink) or shots.

*It is mandatory that a security officer be present when alcohol is served. The fee is $30/hour (subject to change) due in cash on the day of the event.

You must sign and return our alcohol and smoking agreement prior to the event or there will be no bar.
