Melissa was good to work with through the year long planning process. She was always easy to get in touch with and replied to our emails promptly.
We were a bit disappointed that she (or any other member of the facility) stayed the entire evening of our reception. We had an issue with the bar closing early and we had paid for beer and wine to be served the entire evening.

Ravina on the Lakes was our Venue for both the wedding and the reception. We loved it! The weather was perfect, as was the staff. Melissa was our event coordinator at Ravina on the Lakes, and she did a great job. As my husband and I live in Chicago, we had to communicate a lot over phone and email. Melissa was very prompt and friendly with her responses.
They also allowed us to bring in our own caterer from Chicago, which was a SPECIAL EXCEPTION to us. We were thrilled when they approved our request. The day was perfect.

The location is beautiful for an outside wedding. There is a beautiful lake with a fountain surrounded by trees. If you have your ceremony there you must hold your reception there as well. They exclusively use Barrack's Catering with does an awesome job. However it can be costly and if you are on a strict budget it may be too expensive. Also, if you plan on having a large wedding it may be troublesome as well. They have a 200 guest min. on the weekends for events but only supply 100 chairs for the ceremony. Additional chairs must be rented for $2 a chair, which can add up. If you plan for an outdoor wedding at Ravina and the weather turns out bad, as it did for our wedding, they will move everything inside and help you to make everything as perfect as possible. We did have some trouble in the beginning as they had turnover and people leaving and then coming back. Communication was difficult as we talked to one person, they left, had to tell everything to another, and then they left, and then refresh the original person as she then returned to her position. Overall, they are very nice people.
