We had the pleasure of visiting the Avalon Manor in Merrillville, Indiana when we photographed Allison & Adam’s NWI wedding reception here. The Avalon Manor – the largest venue space in Lake County – provided the perfect space for Alison and Adam’s numerous family and friends to celebrate their union.
The manzanita branches in the lobby were strung with delicate crystals and tealights that softly illuminated the guest name cards. Inside the ballroom, guests were treated to a carnival-like atmosphere. One corner held the photobooth, while a candy table and ice-martini bar offered naughty and nice delights on the other side of the room. A travelling magician roamed the ballroom, impressing the guests with his sleight of hand.
Behind the head table, a wall of windows showcased a peaceful garden with lush landscaping and a gazebo perched next to the tranquil pond – an ideal space for an outdoor garden ceremony.
Alison and Adam chose the live band, DeJa Vu, for their reception, and it’s a good thing the Avalon Manor has a large dance floor because the band had the party going all night long!
We had a great time at the Avalon Manor and we hope to bring Joshua Albanese Photography back again soon!
