An Elegant Affair at the Pavilion on the Lake

The Pavilion on the Lake is one of the most beautiful wedding venues on the Central Coast. Floor to ceiling windows frame the lakefront setting of a deck that drapes over the Atascadero Lake. The lovely couple, Jessica & Michael, knew they wanted the comforts of an indoor wedding reception while incorporating the beauty of the outdoors.

While outdoor weddings are popular & charming, indoor weddings eliminate the can-be issues of outdoor receptions…bad weather, bugs, unpleasant bathrooms, etc. The Pavilion is one of the best places on the Central Coast to have an outdoor wedding & an indoor reception. And it’s smack inbetween Los Angeleas and San Francisco and minutes from the wine country!

For their menu, Jessica & Michael knew they wanted a local rustic menu but with some elements that they love. For example, the couple included figs stuffed with gorgonzola & pancetta in their hor’deourves hour along with empanadas stuffed with pulled pork & topped while chipotle aioli.

For dinner, they wanted their out-of-town guests to get a taste of San Luis Obispo County so they chose mesquite-grilled tri tip & herb-grilled chicken. They also offered a dessert bar of chocolate decadence & cheesecake rather than a traditional wedding cake.

Best wishes to Jessica & Michael as they start their new life together!
