The Pavilion on the Lake is an absolutely beautiful venue to host an event whether it be a wedding, reunion, corporate gala or fundraiser. The facilities are state of the art, service is impeccable and the natural beauty surrounding the venue is spectacular. The Pavilion on the Lake Manager, Patti Deirmenjian, makes the whole process of organizing the numerous event details seamless. She is always kind, courteous and helpful beyond words. Patti consistently goes the extra mile to assure everything proceeds according to schedule.  As a local community advocate, I have had the pleasure of working with Patti and her wonderful staff organizing several events over the years with enormous success!

With gratitude,

Working with Patti at the Pavilion made all the difference in the world for my wedding. She made planning so easy and she was incredibly flexible, which helped me manage all the stress from organizing. I had a 220-guest wedding and we were able to fit everyone with a dance floor, for an amazing price. Patti was also incredibly thoughtful. The day of the wedding we decided to use the Pavilion's bridal changing room as the getting ready location for all the bridesmaids and me. We had to start at 7:00am to be able to get everyone through hair and makeup. Patti arrived at 6:30am on a day she doesn't normally work to turn on the heater for us, so we weren't freezing. She also stayed all day to help all the people decorating. She went above and beyond to make our day amazing!

The Pavilion on the Lake in Atascadero is a hidden gem in the Central Coast area and a perfect spot for a wedding. Yes, it's true that the extended drought in California has reduced the water level in the lake, but the beautiful surroundings really minimize the effect. There were even ducks on the lake during the ceremony. What really sets the Pavilion on the Lake apart is the friendliness of the staff, their willingness to accommodate all requests and their flexibility and ideas to make the wedding day perfect.
It all starts with Patti who provided us with wonderful assistance, floor plans for the lighting company, suggestions for the cocktail reception, all at a very fair price. There are many wedding details that are included in the rental price including a private location for the bride and bridesmaids to change, tables and chairs, a sound system that can be moved to the gazebo outside for the ceremony and then moved inside for the reception. They were even able to accommodate the ring bearer (a German shepherd) on property during the reception.
The food was provided by Pacific Harvest Catering which did an amazing job with the hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour and a beautiful buffet dinner. Thank you Dawn for managing the catering and for delivering everything you promised.
If you are thinking of having an event in the Central Coast area, don't overlook the Pavilion on the Lake.

We had our wedding here a few weeks ago and we couldn't have been happier with our decision to have it there! Not only is the location absolutely beautiful, the price is really reasonable! Not to mention that the staff is out of this world! Everyone who works there goes above and beyond to help you and each other to make sure your event runs smoothly. We love this place and if we had to do our wedding over 10 times we'd have it here every time! This place is the best!
