The first impression at your wedding reception sets the tone for the entire evening. It’s the moment that marks the transition from the solemnity of the ceremony to the celebration that follows. A grand entrance can electrify the atmosphere, making it a memorable start to your festivities. At Windows on the Water, we understand the importance of this moment and the impact it has on both you and your guests. With our stunning backdrop of lush landscapes and a serene lake, we offer a canvas on which to paint the beginning of your celebration’s story.

Our expertise in outdoor weddings allows us to create entrances that are not just grand, but truly magical. From enchanting pathways lined with fairy lights to dramatic boat arrivals on the lake, we’re here to bring your unique vision to life. Your reception entrance is your first opportunity as a married couple to wow your guests and set the expectation for the rest of the night – let’s make it unforgettable together.

Creative Entrance Ideas That Will Wow Your Guests

The importance of your reception entrance cannot be overstated. It’s your debut as a married couple and a chance to express your personality and style. Consider a themed entrance that complements your wedding’s overall theme or showcases your interests as a couple. For instance, a “movie premiere” entrance complete with a red carpet, paparazzi, and guests cheering as you walk through can be an exhilarating start to the evening. Alternatively, a serene and romantic boat entrance across our lake under the twilight sky can leave your guests in awe.

Music also plays a crucial role in setting the mood for your entrance. Live musicians can make your entrance even more impactful. At Windows on the Water, our sprawling grounds offer the perfect setting for such musical accompaniments, ensuring every note resonates beautifully with the natural surroundings. 

Incorporating personalized elements can also elevate your entrance. Whether it’s a custom sign with a meaningful quote or a choreographed dance as you make your way to the reception area, these personal touches make the moment truly yours. Our team is dedicated to facilitating these personalized details, ensuring they blend seamlessly with the elegance and beauty of our venue.

Making the Most of Your Venue’s Features

Windows on the Water offers unique features that can make your reception entrance truly stand out. Our lakeside setting provides an idyllic backdrop for a variety of entrance styles. Imagine arriving by boat, gliding serenely across the water as your guests await your arrival on the shore. Or, for a more traditional approach, our beautifully manicured pathways offer a picturesque route for a grand entrance on foot, surrounded by nature.

Utilizing the natural terrain of our venue can add an element of surprise and enchantment to your entrance. A gentle stroll down a lantern-lit path, with the soft sounds of nature surrounding you, can create a moment of anticipation and excitement for your guests. Alternatively, our two-tiered waterside patio allows for a dramatic reveal, as you descend towards the reception area with the stunning lake as your backdrop.

Our versatile outdoor spaces also allow for customization to reflect your personal style. Whether you envision a fireworks display as you make your entrance, or a release of lanterns into the evening sky, our team at Windows on the Water is ready to bring your vision to life.
