This is a long story but it is one that I think everyone should know. I got engage Xmas eve 2008, and like any other bride I began my search for the perfect wedding facility. Well in January of that same year my fianc and I both fell in love with the Crooked Lake House, and we booked it for a 2000 dollar deposit. After that by word of mouth I had heard many mixed reviews about it, though most were good, some of them started to make me feel a little uneasy. But my family reassured, like any supportive family would that this was the right place, and everything is going to be fine. Well being the first to plan a wedding in my family, we were all blinded by Paul Vincent the owner. First blinded by his very vague and insufficient contract that required us to make payments, the first one being in May, the next one in December, and the final one 2 weeks before the wedding. This was as Paul put it ??to make it a little easier on us?. We made our 1st May payment of 3500 dollars, only to find out two months later that Paul has closed his restaurant. We didn??t even have the peace of mind to find this out from Paul himself. We heard through newspaper articles and worried friends. Of course wanting to find out what was going on we tried to contact him, trying for 2 weeks before he finally decided to face us in a meeting, he told us that he had to close the restaurant due to financial hardships. Not telling us the complete truth about those hardships he told us that he was still planning on holding all his weddings, but catering them out. Not fully trusting him we continued to questioning that possibility, asking how many weddings did he have planned and who he had picked as caterers, but still in his sly and sneaking ways he convinced my family and I that he could do.

He had continued to string us along, finding carters to work with and lies to tell, but we knew we in trouble, he owed 20,000 dollars in back taxes and was 3 months behind on the property??s mortgage. He eventually lucked out and found a really awesome catering company named Old Daly Inn who were willing to put their name in the line to work with him. They found a buyer for the Lake House, but Paul and his pride would not sell.
This lead to disaster, Paul decided to take on a partner instead, this crazy partner still left Paul as a majority owner doing us no good. No matter how we looked at it, there was no way that we could have our wedding there, Paul had spend our money and the facility was closed, tied up in a financial hurricane, and we were stuck in the middle of.

So there I sat 5 months before my wedding in tears. I was out 5,500 dollars, and I had no where to get married. To sum it up, BEWARE of this man and his Crooked Lake House!
