Venue Spotlight: Lake View Country Club

If you’re looking for views of the lake and expansive views of the sky and sunset and natural beauty and great food and great planners, we’ve got the place for you in this Venue Spotlight: Lake View Country Club. (You can see their website here.)

If you’re from Erie, it’s likely you’ve been to Lake View Country Club for a wedding or an event or even to, well, play golf. It’s definitely one of those places that everyone knows. It’s pretty iconic that way.

And as always a bit of a side note: we’ve been doing this Matt Mead wedding photography gig for some time now and we observe everything at every venue from a sort of behind the scenes privilege, and so when we share a venue, you can be sure, it meets our critical eye’s standards. You can read about more wedding venues we love.

Let’s take a closer look at Lake View Country Club.

Venue Spotlight: Lake View Country Club

A bit of background

Lake View Country Club was dreamed up and brought to life in the late 1950s. A small group of visionaries thought it was possible to bring a championship caliber golf course to the bluff overlooking the town and vineyards of North East, PA and, of course, the big, blue, breathtaking expanse of Lake Erie itself.

If you have your wedding here at just the right time, the smell of those vineyards will fill the air. (Who from Erie doesn’t love that time of year?)

The developers of Lake View Country Club carved it out of the hillside to provide the most spectacular views of the area. There was nothing else but Lake View that it could be named.

Those views have distracted many a golfer, but they provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

Enough about golf… what about your wedding?

Weddings at Lake View Country Club

The Space

With huge windows facing the beautiful natural landscape, the elegant reception room is a warm, and inviting space perfect for this important day. Tastefulness is the key theme here.

Besides the indoor reception area, there is also an outdoor space that is perfect for the ceremony and celebration in the warmer weather.

The Food

Lake View Country Club is very proud of its reputation for the finest food in the Erie area. Their very experienced culinary team is always developing new and fresh menu ideas.

Their pre-set event menus include your choice of a sit-down dinner service or buffet, with your choice of entrée selections. However, by no means do they limit you to these selections as they will tailor any menu to suit your culinary taste as well as your budget.

The Planning

Lake View Country Club is also known for its excellence in wedding planning. These people have seen it all and can make your unique dreams come true, as well as deal with any unforeseen issues quietly and adeptly as they pop up. (And what wedding doesn’t have at least a couple of minor snafus?)

Testimonials about Lake View Country Club

Though we think the photos kinda speak for themselves, hearing from people who have had or attended weddings here can always be helpful when you’re making a decision as important as this:

I went for a wedding and the reception afterwards. Everything Lakeview did was five stars. Arranging for the wedding party to get to the perfect spot overlooking the lake for the wedding. Transportation to and from. The reception. And the food was outstanding; beyond five stars. (Don)

We had my daughter’s September wedding reception here. The coordinator was so accommodating and easy to work with. The food was delicious and portions were huge. The staff was great. We were so very glad we chose the Lake View Country Club and would do it again in a heartbeat. (Deb)

They did a great job with our wedding! They easily met every request and they helped personally the day and night of the wedding. There are beautiful locations for pictures; the outdoor deck was amazing; bar service with quick and friendly; and the food was wonderful! So many compliments on everything. So thankful for the chef and the entire team at Lakeview! Thanks again!! (Janelle)
