Christmas Party

Thank you for your part in coordinating our AINW Holiday Party at Lakeside Gardens on Dec. 14th. Everyone had a wonderful time--the atmosphere, decorations, food, and your staff were great! It was easy to enjoy ourselves, relax, and let the evening unfold. Please tell your staff "Thank You" for us. I've been wanting to call you the last couple of days to tell you this, but it's always too late in the day before I remember. I just want you to know how much I appreciate all the help you provide! It's been a pleasure working with you these last two years.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The best to all of you at Lakeside Gardens in 2010!

Celebration of Life

I had so many wonderful comments about the Lakeside Gardens and the wonderful job you did for Jerry. Thank you again Pam for all the assistance and the shoulder to lean on.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for doing such a wonderful job. Everything was perfect. I had so many people come up and say that this was the best wedding that they had been to. This day and age, I seldom feel like I get my money's worth for any purchase or service, maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy, maybe a dollar doesn't stretch as far as it use to. I must say the service you provided was truly an exception to the norm. You and your staff made my daughters wedding a day she will always remember and cherish.
Thank you so much.

We just wanted you and your staff to know how much we truly enjoyed our wedding and Lakeside Gardens. We wouldn’t have picked a more perfect place!
Our guests have been raving about the food and the atmosphere. Everything tasted and looked great. You make the entire day so easy for the bride and groom. That is what we were looking for and we were not disappointed.
Thank you again to you and your staff for a night we well never forget.

As our first anniversary came along on May 6th , we are still so full of the wonderful memories of our wedding day. OFTEN during the year as we look at photos and talk to friends I have thought of you Pam, and the entire staff at Lakeside that made our reception such an exceptional, beautiful and fun event. I have never heard so many compliments about a wedding day and how enjoyable each part of it was (of course Father John made the wedding mass a truly fun as well as spiritual event), then Lakeside was such a gorgeous setting and Everything went so well. Our friends were talking about it for weeks after, they even still do. The entire staff was professional, courteous, and all the help you gave us in the planning stages was wonderful. And the time we got to spend for photos before the wedding Truly made all the difference in the world for our day getting started off right, and relieving us of so much stress so that we could and DID truly enjoy every moment we could squeeze out of being with family and friends at the reception. I can never thank you enough for that. Well obviously I could just go on and on, but then I guess that truly shows how Wonderful of a day it was and however grateful we are to all of you at Lakeside and especially you, Pam.
Thank you so very much. You will always have a special place in our hearts as we remember 5-6-07.

Dear Chris,
We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding perfect! We couldn’t have asked for a more smooth, stress-free and beautiful wedding. We are absolutely thrilled with your service and attention to detail. The food was incredible too!

Thank you for everything.

Dear Chris,
On behalf of our families and the entire bridal party, I want to thank you for making sure that our daughter, Terra Spencer, and her groom-to-be, Todd Cunlisk, had an absolutely wonderful wedding Saturday evening July 9.
We had guests from several states, as well as life-long Oregonians, yet so many wanted to know how in the world we ever found such a beautiful location as Lakeside Gardens. Only a few old-timers remembered that at one time your facility was a restaurant and even so, they think of it as a memorable location for the special events in their lives.
Weddings can be the most enjoyable, yet most stressful times in life. The fact that Lakeside Gardens provides all of the wait-staff, the delicious catered food, and management of so many other details, made it so much more enjoyable for us, with much less to worry about.
You personally were a voice of calm and reason among the potential chaos and we appreciate that aspect of your services as well.
Thank you so much and feel free to use this letter as a reference any time you may wish.
