Truly we have had some wonderful compliments over the past 9 seasons - such as the following from Bill and Janice June 9th 2012 -
Mark and Lynne: Thank you for providing 'the perfect wedding venue'! It was beautiful & magical & our day was PERFECT! You both are the reason for that perfection. Don't ever doubt the services you provide at Fields. You should be extremely proud of what you have accomplished.
When all of my guests, even my 80 year old parents, as well as Bill's, could not stop telling us this was the BEST wedding they had ever attended, thats a huge compliment.
Thank you for making our day special, magical & amazing. We are forever in your debt & and will tell everyone about Fields. Thanks, Bill and Janice.
and then they commented:
Just read the latest blog for Amanda & Tyler. Excellent coverage! It's amazing how their guests & ours described the weddings in a similar fashion: magical, beautiful venue, beautiful location & most guests stated that they had never experienced this type of wedding location before!
Like Amanda & Tyler's guests, ours told us that this was the best wedding they had ever been to! This was the overall comment from both young & old guests!
You & Lynne should be very proud of your 'little red Barn' & the service you provide!
From Bill & I (& I'm sure every other couple wed at Fields on West Lake), a big, heartfelt Thank You!
Bruce and Katie who were married here Sunday May 20th 2012:
An amazing place! Thanks for making our special day truly the night of our lives! Our guests remarked that Fields was an incredible place...thank you!
Katherine and Hugh who were married here the weekend of August 20th 2011:
'Hugh and I were so happy to wake up with our wedding guests continously gushing over the wedding venue. They said they have never seen such a place - it was magical. The reception was the most seamless part of the day. Mark and Lynne know exactly what to do, saw our vision and executed it perfectly. We were so glad we made the choice to do the open bar too. The champagne, theme drinks - our guests felt spoiled and had the time of their lives - which was the whole goal for Hugh and I. Mark and Lynne are open minded and a pleasure to work with - they go above and beyond to make your day unique. Thank you very much.'
John and Erin just wrote about their September 3rd 2011 wedding
'Erin and I just wanted to send you and Lynn a quick thank-you. Our day was spectacular and we wish to thank you for making that happen. If anyone ever asks me about possible locations for a wedding, I will be telling them that they should go to you. Thanks to your staff as well, everyone we have spoken with is raving about the wedding.'
And Karen and Chad who had a cocktail style reception here Friday, September 9th 2011, wrote:
'Lynne and Mark,
Thank you so much for all your hard work in making our reception what it was. Everything turned out just as we had envisioned. Our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the beauty of the venue, the great service and the overall atmosphere of the evening. The fact that we didn't have to spend the morning and the next day putting up and taking down decor was a huge plus! That saved us so much stress and time.
We chose a destination wedding to save ourselves a lot of trouble but we're so glad we could celebrate with our family and friends in our own community. I've had Fields on Westlake chosen for my wedding venue for many, many years and it reached all my expectations.'
Tyler and Amanda's did after their June 23rd 2012 wedding;
'With Mark and Lynne's help planning a wedding from 7000 KM away was easy. And it was beautiful. It became embarassing how much our guests were gushing. Throughout the night we heard over and over that it was "the best wedding I've ever been to, the venue was beautiful. How did you find it?" Thank you, everything was more beautiful, more delicious and easier than we ever imagined.'
And Kristin and Charles after their July 1st 2012 wedding;
'Mark and Lynne - we can't say how much you have made our day the most amazing day we could have ever asked for. You did a fantastic job! You took our vision and made it reality without saying a word. We can't tell you how amazing and truly beautiful your barn is. Drew your flowers were stunning! THANK-YOU!. Thank you,thank you for all your hard work. You all truly made our day the most memorable. Everyone mentioned how amazing this venue is and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and that was down to you guys. So thank you sooo much!
And Jill and Martin after their July 7th 2012 wedding;
Lynne and Mark, we want to thank you for making our wedding day so special. We had the most perfect day and would like to thank you for all the hard work and kindness that you showed us, our family, and friends. All of our guests said they had a fantastic time. Thank you Drew for making a beautiful venue even more stunning. We couldn't have wished for our day to go any better. Every last detail was taken care of by yourselves so that we could enjoy the day without a worry in the world. Take care and all the best :)
Charlsie and Andrew after their July 14th wedding:
'Dear Mark and Lynne and Kailey - Thank you so much for everything you have done this past year in helping to plan for our wedding. Your attention to every detail and professionalism allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment leading up to the big day. Thank you!
Leigh and Andrew after their July 21st wedding:
'Dear Lynne and Mark' - Thank you so very much for making our dreams come true on our wedding day! Everything went as smoothly as we could have ever asked for. You really took our vision of a homemade and 'from-the-heart' wedding and brought it to life with your careful touches and attention to detail. All of your hard work behind the scenes really gave us the confidence to relax, have fun, and soak up all of the memories that were created that day. All of our friends and family could not stop raving about the beautiful venue and the rustic country feel of our wedding. What a special day!
We can't thank you enough for everything!
Peter and Suzanne commented following their July 28th wedding:

JP and Erin commented after their August 31st wedding:
Erin and I want to extend our thanks and appreciation for the fantastic job you both did for our wedding, everything turned out extremely well. Our guests couldn't get over how beautiful your venue is and how well everything was setup.
We could not have asked for a better day to celebrate our wedding and we appreciate all the effort and time you and Lynne put into making it that way.
