"Okay wow..
If you’re not getting married at The Pointe, what are you doing with your life? 
There came a crazy monsoon right before my wedding date and I was faced with having to completely rearrange my plans. 
Nikki already had it all planned out perfect inside the barn and I still got my lake view!  My day was so perfect. Nikki and her staff treat you like a QUEEN and are there ready to help in any way they can! I can’t say enough good things! 
You are in great hands at The Pointe!"

"Everything about this venue is amazing. The setting is simply stunning. The view of the lake is top notch. The facilities are gorgeous, the staff was so friendly and courteous, the buildings were so photogenic. As a photographer, I can't say that about many places. It was difficult to get a bad image there. If you're looking for a beautiful location for your wedding, this is the one."

-Daniel T

"The Pointe was absolutely everything I could have ever dreamed and more. The lighting, the decor, the way the space is set up, EVERYTHING was absolutely perfect. On top of that, Nikki was a DREAM to work with and so was her recommended vendors. She went well above and beyond to make sure our weekend was everything we wanted. This is THE PLACE to get married or have a wedding celebration. 10/10."
